Where are you Diving Today?

June 29, 2012

Photos by Tribsy at Weber’s Joy


My friend, Tribsy, just had a lovely dive at Weber’s Joy on the north coast (my favorite sites are up there). Here you will see Rays, eels and diverse fishlife.

Weber’s Joy, also known as Witches Hut, is a relatively easy memorable dive site. If the current is favorable, you can even drift dive to 1000 Steps which is about 1 km away.

Directions: Leave town head north past Hato and Sabadeco, take the hairpin turn past Caribbean Club (great place to stop for a libation) 7 km North of Kralendijk.

To book your dive vacation contact ann@bonairecaribbean.com today and ask for the Bonaire Bliss special discounted package.
