This dive site is located on a small beach with dead coral. It’s a spot with a double reef, like many other southern dive sites. You can best enter the water at the southernmost bridge, but even here it’s not easy because you have to climb a shallow reef just in front of the side. After a large sandy plateau you find the drop off at 23 feet. On the plateau you often see rays hunting squids.
Behind this lies a beautiful reef with lots of coral. You can also find giant basket stars, not very special at daytime, but at night they expand into large, long-armed starfish. The reef starts to decrease at 43 feet with soft corals and sponges until the next sandy bottom at 102 feet. Here you see heaps of sand eels. The second reef is far from the coast, you will find a lot of sponges and large fish. The first reef is the most special. Between 43 and 82 feet you will find many cleaning stations and a lot of fish that are being cleaned.
Do you want to visit Tori’s Reef? In Bonaire Dive Guide you can find more information and detailed directions. Convenient, as many dive sites on the South 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.
