Thought I'd make a brief posting on this having just spent some 3 weeks here. Unfortunately did not get in the amount of dives I would have liked to. First week was basically "all work" and second week majority of time was spent entertaining non diving guests.

Thanks for the report Vince.

While I hope it would be a menu item, it takes too darn many to make a decent meal. A full dive might get you 5-6 edible size fish so the cost for restaurants might be prohibitively expensive. I suppose if you get divers or shops donating the fish, it might work.

Hi Vince - we noticed many more grouper in January, too (in the water...not on restaurant menus ). Nice to see.

@ Glenn do you mean the fish or those who smell like 'em :-) I am doing just fine thank you :-) Hey Vince don't you agree that the past couple of weeks Bonaire has shown itself from its most wonderful side? Great climate, fantastic sea conditions including superviz? Awesome!

Curiouser and curiouser!!! I have comments about the reef fish population from recent visitors to Bonaire but no one on island will comment.

Hi Glen..Just got a chance to check back on this thread. Rest assured the reef & fish population on Bonaire's reefs are far "from bare". Corals were in good shape with the cooler prevailing temps and there were schools & schools of the usual reef denizens to be seen at all the spots I dove. Admittedly just dove the south sites & Klein, since I never got a chance to dive up north.

TKS, Vince. Good to hear the sky hasn't fallen yet.

Vince, My Oceanic Pro Plus dive computer has been showing the water temps to be 74 or 75 degrees. I have been comparing temps with my husband who dives with a Suunto and his temps are 80 to 81, so I reported those temps on my post above. I always show cooler temps on my Oceanic compared to any other brand of dive computer for some reason. I have been diving with a 5mm full suit and beanie and am perfectly comfortable, except for that extra weigh in the bc pockets that are not that fun!
