    Bonairetruckrental.com - Just got back...$50 a day!

    Libertad Car Rental is another good one. $352 all in for an 8 day rental for a Toyota hilux with a stick. They were waiting for me at the airport when I came out and the transaction took about 5 minutes.

    He’s at the Marriott because everyplace else on the island was booked. I can’t help with the insurance question.

    Covid surging in Bonaire

    It was one of his kids that came up positive, and is asymptomatic. Quarantine is 5 to 10 days. I’m guessing that if you test negative after 5, you’re good to go. If not, it’s ten days after positive test (which I think is the CDC guideline for asymptomatic positive test).

    Covid surging in Bonaire

    I’m leaving for Bonaire Saturday. I’m already bringing supplies for a friend stuck in quarantine at the Marriott there. Should you be unlucky at test time, let me know and I’ll add to the larder. FYI, it sounds like a good idea to stock up on cash before you test. My friend said he’s able to...

    Boat diving at Buddy Dive, is it worth it?

    Boat dives are nice for ease of entry and exit, but not really worth it aside from that, excepting getting a day in with East Coast Divers. I’m a bit of a curmudgeon and your preferences may vary but: You will generally dive the same sites shore diving and those you need the boat to get to...

    Budget Trip Challenge - Bonaire

    It’s a little 4 unit complex on Kaya Breda; don’t know the name. Yeah, though, it wouldn’t really work for a solo trip.

    Larger people pushed faster in current?

    Of course. Sorry pal. I assure you I meant neither to condescend nor offend; Basic Scuba Discussion thread and all, I was proceeding from a false assumption. FWIW, your logic seems sound. Happy diving.

    Larger people pushed faster in current?

    Heya Clownfish, I don't know your experience level, but first, yeah, the larger the cross section you present to the current, the greater impact the current will have have upon you. That said, your control of your trim and relative position has a greater impact on your cross section than your...

    Key West Dive Shop Recommendations

    My usual shop in Key West has gone out of business and the one I tried a couple weeks ago enforces a rediculously short dive time on the Vandenberg. Any recommendations?

    Japan ordered to stop whaling in Antarctic

    To whatever degree there are people out to kill whales for sport, it is not enforceable. If commercial whalers can no longer sell the whale in Japanese ports, it will make a difference.

    Thoughts on Divers Paradise?

    This summer I'm doing a trip to Bonaire and am trying to keep the costs down. Has anyone stayed at Divers Paradise? Their rates are low enough that I am a little leery of booking. I don't ask for much out of accomodations. Clean, quiet, air-conditioned with a kitchen that includes both an...
