If you come diving at Bonaire, this is one of the dive sites you really must visit. At this reef, most different types of fish have been counted in the entire Caribbean. Of the 469 species of fish you find around our island, 317 have been counted here.
This is a fantastic dive site for photographers, even at night. Then you find octopus, spider crabs and blood coral shrimp, which are much more visible at night. It is easy to enter the water, from the right side of the cement pier.
On the sandy bottom lies dead coral which attracts a lot of living creatures. The drop off begins between 20 and 39 feet and has a lot of different sponges and corals. Here tarpon chase many of the smaller reef fish.
Do you want to visit Bari Reef? In Bonaire Dive Guide you can find more information and detailed directions to the best diving spots. 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.
