The East coast; the wild side of Bonaire

The dive sites on our East Coast are of a completely different category than the rest of our island. This really is the ‘wild side’ of our island. Many places are not marked, the current is strong and the waves are high and that makes a shore dive very difficult. Shore diving here is therefore only suitable for experienced divers accompanied by a guide. Do you not have experience in diving and do you not want to miss all the beauty? Then go diving from a boat. The reef here is still almost untouched, with large coral formations and especially very large fish such as sharks and rays.
