Currently administered as a municipality of The Netherlands (and therefore having the Dutch anthem as her official national anthem), Bonaire was part of the Netherlands Antilles until their dissolution in 2010. From 1964-2000, Bonaire’s anthem served as the territorial anthem for the entire Netherlands Antilles (without the lyrics) until a new anthem was selected for that territory. This anthem is now used as her territorial anthem.

Hurricane Omar passed over 100 kilometers north of Bonaire. The geometry of the circular bands resulted in waves battering the leeward coast from directions it does not normally do. Our side was battered for close to two days. I did a survey dive shortly after: camera on and swim. Later we organized a dive to gather the scattered planks of the pier so workers could hoist them out. We always spent time dusting the coral for months afterwards.

This is the most accessible access to the second reef of the double reef system. The two are closest (I believe) here and deep is not required. It gets deeper the as it goes south. Where the slope starts is a very likely place to see some pelagic species swinging by.

Part of the double reef system of Bonaire's south. It begins at the Helma Hooker wreck and continues down to Invisible. So, after the usual shore dropoff and a sandy bottom, another reef system rises and then falls off very steeply on the seaward side.

I'm in the pool cleaning and I look up to find this staring at me from a few feet away!
Could be a Juv. Green, or Night Heron.

Unusual in that it does not have a marine park dive boat mooring and a very tough shore entry == seldom dove. We had access on our own, from Casa Flamingo. Our default dive.

Bonaire's finest mangrove swamp. A nursery for many reef fish, including the inch or two barracuda pictured here.

Nearly every evening plus/minus sunset, a self selected group of Flamingos make the flight to the Maracaibo area of Venezuela for the night. Nobody is entirely sure why. But many residents are on the alert early every morning to pick up exhausted Flamingos that landed as soon as they could, usually in the road.

A few years ago, a friend and I spent every Sunday exploring Bonaire's Mundi (rural area), looking for the perfect goat stew. Add a GPS enabled camera to Google Earth to get this virtual tour.

One of my favorite dives. The double reef structure is separated by a deep sandy bottom. Lots of pelagics out on the second dropoff.
