Evaluation

*Average:    4.62
Tied for my favorite dive site on the island. It has pristine reefs and larger than average fish. My feeling is that the location of this site allows for currents to bring extra nutrients to the reef and it shows. The only way I could see someone getting in trouble here is ignoring a current. I get the impression it could get real dangerous under the right conditions if you ignored the current, unless you wanted a free trip to South America! You can navigate really easily by counting the sand shoots as you pass them; count the same # back and you're out in the exact same place. Easy in and out. Currents pick up at night in Bonaire, so I don't think it would be a good idea to night dive there, ever.
