I can only say how fortunate I feel to have been able to return to Bonaire for a second dive trip. My wife and I dove everything we could from Karpata to Red Slave within our limited timeframe. We never had a 'bad' dive, and Vista Blue came in at one our top three sites. This place was like diving in an aquarium! There is just a perfect blend of hard and soft corals and the fish life was diverse and plentiful! (The lion-fish population is a bit too plentiful! We saw some really large 'nest' of them at this site). We also saw a very large Grouper and one 'tortuga'. The site is well marked with a big, yellow rock and you can drive to within 20 meters of the beach. It has an easy entry with just a bit of loose coral rubble. The beach itself is very fine sand and really beautiful (one of the best we saw on Bonaire). We only saw one other vehicle visiting this site during the whole week. This was such a perfect dive that I remember thinking, 'If I had gills, I'd just call this place home.'
