Explore diving around the Caribbean Club Bonaire

What to see

Some of the most memorable creatures you can find on Bonaire are hawksbill, loggerhead and green turtles. Getting a closer look, you may be fortunate enough to spot a seahorse camouflaged in the reefs. Angelfish, tangs, sergeant majors, creole wrasse and butterfly fish also make the reef home. The fire corals, tube sponges and giant sea anemones that cling to the rocks are a surprising sight. Remember to look and not touch! Although Bonaire is not known for bigger fish, you might see some near the wrecks. Large tarpon, barracuda and several, good-sized groupers make their homes in the sunken structures.
