03/23/2007 Colleen Haggart (Avg: 4.28 Review) - Very easy entry, with a good swim out to the reef. Pay attention to the sand as you may see rays and flounder on the swim out. This is a double reef; the second reef is at 70 feet. I found the largest green eel I have ever seen.

04/24/2004 Doug Devries (Avg: 3.96 Review) - We drove out to dive the Salt Pier, but there was a ship there so we tried this site. Not too bad! We found lots to keep us busy, especially lying on the bottom watching the garden eels! So, if you're disappointed because you can't dive the pier, this is the next best site.

01/19/2004 Dan B. (Avg: 3.98 Review) - This dive site is an excellent example of Bonaire's double reef system. From the buoy, the second reef is very close and relatively shallow (60ft). We swam North along the second reef, then after the turn, we came back along the far side of the first reef. There were lots of Garden Eels in the sand between the two reefs.

04/27/2001 Remko Fortgens (Avg: 3.38 Review) - Damaged side of the tidal wave in 1999. Between 2 reefs at about 25 metres, chance for spotted eagle rays, stingrays and large morays, ofcourse the other fish-life good too.
