Forest

This dive site is located on a small rocky peninsula on the southwest corner of Klein Bonaire. It is one of the most beautiful dive sites of Klein Bonaire, nowhere else you will find so much black coral. If you want to dive here, go early because a boat may dock. The buoy is 20 feet deep on a narrow, shallow plateau.

The french angel fish swimming here are used to being fed and are not shy. On the reef you’ll find many great elephant ear sponges and a forest of black coral, especially deeper than 49 feet. At 30 feet you will find many turtles at the perpendicular wall. After 59 feet it is somewhat less narrow and the bottom drops down to 161 feet. Between 49 and 66 feet you will find a lot of cleaning stations where many fish will cease to be brushed. Up to 79 feet depth you can find plate corals of more than 10 feet wide.

Do you want to visit Forest? In Bonaire Dive Guide you can find more information and detailed directions. Convenient, as many dive sites on the north coast are off road and hard to find. The guide is also practical as a reference and safe: leaving your mobile phone in the car during a dive is not wise.
