Hi there, I'm a marine biology student on the island and I'm doing my Independent Research project on the cleaning behaviors of shrimp on different anemones, the corkscrew anemone and the giant anemone.

Hi Kyle, pretty much every site has them. One of my favorite things to see. I know the stretch of water south from Eden Beach past the harbor entrance in loaded with corkscrew anemone. The rubble areas seem to have more.

I'm not an expert on reef life around Bonaire. Have only dove about 1/3 of the published sites (if that). But I will say that we encountered more anemones at Red Slave than anywhere else. Not sure if any of them were the type you are looking for though. And Red Slave can have some strong current if the wind is wrong so need to use some caution.

Cai and the Lighthouse are indeed wonderful dives, but not always the most accessible or the safest, respectively. Bas is the expert, thoug...I'm just a tourist....
