This is one of the favorite dive sites on Bonaire because of the great variety of healthy coral. The coast of this spot is full of cacti and thorny bushes which can incur hefty scratches, hence the name of this place. It’s more convenient to dive from a boat.
The shallow plateau here is very wide and full of life and an interesting place for photographers. Diving is interesting from 32 feet, because the cliff drops down steeply to over 148 feet. The area between 20 and 66 feet is the most beautiful, full of life and with a large variety of coral. Especially the sponges are large. You will encounter mostly reef fish here, but sometimes you come across a great barracuda.
Do you want to visit Bloodlet? 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.
