A perfect place to scuba for novices and anyone who likes easy conditions: moorings on all dive sites (for boats up to 38ft and dinghies), book describing dive sites, good visibility, no or very little current (90% sites), pick your depth from 25ft and down, easy u/w navigation along walls … Your 10$ dive permit will be worth it and prices charged by dive centers to go with them on dives are very reasonable compared to the rest of the Caribbean (Sand Dollar well organized and cater to cruisers)!
Our favorite dive sites were 4.bise morto, 9.rappel, 40. Hilma hooker wreck, 41. angel city, 57. red slaves (current!) N. forest, V.Carl’s hill. If you want to do a wreck not part of the Park’s official dive sites, try the 237′ Windjammer wreck just off Bopec (145’+ deep).

Keep in mind that you have an easy sail to Chichiriviche on the Venezuelan coast for provisioning at much better prices than in Bonaire. No formal check-in is necessary, just have to see the port captain for a short stay before going to Puerto Cabello. Nice anchorages and exploration in the Bahia de Cuare with Indian caves & religious site. Keep in mind that the Moroccoy Park official user fee for the foreign flagged vessel is 84000 B$!
