Before I traveled to Bonaire, everyone I spoke to said you must dive the Salt Pier. Needless to say, it lived up to all expectations. Here is a short video I assembled. You will find a ton of animals life such as Trunkfish, Filefish, Moray Eels, Sharptail Eel, Parrot Fish, Wrasse, Snappers, Angelfish, Sergeant Major’s, Tarpon, Spotted Drum Fish and, Scorpion Fish. Salt Pier can be dived as a boat or shore dive. My first dive was lead by guides from the Divi Flamingo Resort.
In this video, I scuba dived 3 sites Coco Beach House Reef, Love Tunnel and Tackle Box. Out of the 3, Tackle Box and Love Tunnels are my favorite dives. I loved the swim thru’s. Coco Beach House Reef was cool. It had a lot shark interaction there, which was a lot of fun. During the week, the surge was abnormal and it was difficult to shoot steady footage. I did the best I could under the conditions. Diving was provided by Tuff E Nuff which is the on-premise shop for the Costa Blue Dive & Beach Resort.
I was fortune to win a Twitter Chat sponsored by Stuart Cove Dive Bahamas and Scuba Diving Magazine. I flew down to Nassau from NY to dive with the team and resident Caribbean Reef Shark family.
I spent a few days diving with Sea Fun Divers based out of Phuket in Thailand. We dove the following sites: Phi Phi Islands, King Cruiser, Shark Point, Koh Doc Mai, and Koh Racha Yai. Each site was filled with lots of marine life. This video highlights what I observed during my dives.
I spent a few days in Curacao diving with the team from the Scuba Lodge Dive Center located in Pietermaai. The guides were great at recommending fantastic dive sites and pointing out cool animals underwater. I wrote a review on Dive Curacao‘s site.
I spent a long weekend in Barbados scuba diving with the team at the Barbados Blue Dive Center. Conditions were not ideal for diving and videography do to a passing storm but we did get to observe a lot of life underwater. My favorite dive site was the Bridgetown refueling pier which hosts a wide variety of fish.
