    If we go this year, it wouldn't be until October or November. Our group of regulars usually gets motivated around mid-summer to start thinking about planning an Oct-Nov Bonaire trip. My wife and I missed the trip last year because we decided to go to Roatan instead. No regrets--Roatan was good for what it was--but I think we would have had a better time with our group of friends in the house they rented on Bonaire. Hopefully this year is a Bonaire year for us.

    Okay, fish looked at. My work here is done.

    Time for a 24 hour SI and then we can go home.

    Sigh...

    Lorenzoid, you should be aware that November is rainy season for Bonaire. Decreased viz.

    Dive computer said 77 degrees. Dive buddy claimed it was colder and kept trying to shorten the night dives.

    Wife and I will be in Bonaire May 2 thru 17 for our 10th trip back in the past 15 years.... Celebrating our 20th year of bliss, so this year we're spoiling ourselves and staying in Crown Ridge villa no. 12 in Sabadeco. More $$ than our normal stay at Buddies, but the payoff is guaranteed panoramic ocean front with private pool, private garage parking and a private staircase / entry to the Andrea 1 & 2 sites..

    We'll be buying our shore diving pkg from Buddy's and will be timing our ala-cart breakfast with them right about the time their scheduled morning boats are leaving the dock. Also will do a minimum of 2 tank days with East Coast Divers.

    1st timer heading to Bonaire on Friday. Staying at Capt. Don's Habitat in a oceanview room. From what I read here, we will be disappointed. Any tips to make the stay more enjoyable?

    Stay under water. You will not be disappointed. (unless you want a shark feed)
