I will be on Bonaire next week for the third year in a row. I was wondering how the vis was. Are the Mosquitos still quite active or have the puddles dried out some. Cant wait two days and counting.

Yesterday at Something Special the visibility was over 60 feet and possibly 80 - excellent! Salt Pier was about 10 feet until you get 1/2 way to the reef, then 30 and about 40 at the reef edge.

Lots of mosquitos, the puddles had just about dried up, but we're getting rain this morning.

I concur with BEM. I am currently on island too, and the visibility is much less than in the past. It is running 50-75 feet versus the 100 + feet. Also, there is more surge than in the past, which is churning up the sand helping to reduce the visibility. It rained Sunday and Monday, but was really nice yesterday.

Was out at "Hands Off" at Klein yesterday afternoon. Viz was at least 100 feet. Diving was spectacular!

We were at Hands Off today and for the second dive at Joanna's Sunchi. On both we had 80 to a 100ft vis with great sightings like an eagle ray..... Even in the Washington Park (Boca Bartol & Playa Benge) with a 3 to 4 foot surge the vis was over 60ft 3 days ago.....

At Karpata today the viz was about 80 to 100 feet with some particulate in the water when you look downward. But down at 70 feet looking upward it was totally clear blue and beautiful. Way better than last year here. The soft coral at the 30 to 40 foot level are thriving and full of fish variety.

Karpata is a great dive. Sorry I didn't get a chance to do it this trip!
