Bonaire is located on the leeward side of the Caribbean not far off the northern cost of Venezuela, and nestled close to Aruba and Curaçao. These three small islands make up the Dutch Antilles (AKA the ABC Islands). 

Known as a ‘Divers Paradise’ Bonaire is a real hotspot of biodiversity, home to pristine coral reefs and home to almost all the species of fish and coral found in the Caribbean.
​Bonaire is also one of the few places on the planet where you can shore-dive virtually everywhere around the island. The coral reefs begin at the waters edge and extend seaward for roughly 300 meters making them easy to access without boats. 

Bonaire established a National Marine Park in 1979, long before it was common to protect coral reefs and is still world famous for its active management of the island’s marine resources. The park includes 2,700 hectares of fringing reefs, sea grasses and mangroves. Diving tourism is the primary industry today and that is only possible because of their early adoption of marine protection practices
