This dive site is located on a bay with high cliffs on the east side of Bonaire, north of the old lighthouse ‘Spelonk’. Diving here is only possible with little or no wind. Dive here only with an experienced guide because the current is strong and it’s hard to get out of the water.
At this site you will have a great chance of big fish such as black tip reef sharks and nurse sharks. The bottom in the bay is overgrown with weeds and hard coral. Here you will find crabs, shrimp and young fish. At the end of the bay you will find a huge boulder.
At the right of it you will find cliffs with rocky ledges and sand up to 105 feet. At the left the cliffs are less high and they form ridges. At the left of the bay you will find a cave under a ledge. Between 66 and 115 feet are small coral gardens. The best depth for diving is 72 feet. On this site you will also find wrecks of ships that crashed on the rocks.
Of you want to leave the water, follow the channel at the left side of the bay and surface at the protruding ledge. Hold on tight to prevent the waves pulling you off the ledge. Always wear gloves!
Do you want to visit Boka Spelonk? In Bonaire Dive Guide you can find more information and detailed directions. Convenient, as many dive sites on the East 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.
