|The Invisibles in Bonaire is one of my favorite sites to dive on the main land. It lies fairly close to the salt fields and is easy to find. Entry is relatively easy as well. Large sandy area before you get to the reef is teaming with Spotted Eagle Rays at first light in the morning(definitely worth waking up for). Garden eels are always present as well. The reef starts very similarly to all of the reef on Bonaire with about 40-50 feet of relatively flat to sloping reef and then drops off rapidly to the bottom at a little over a hundred. Visibility seems to be consistently better on this site for some reason. If you did hit the bottom and kept swimming away from shore, you'd end up on the second reef(quite a swim). Typically the reef holds common reef fish, plenty of coral shrimp and arrow crab as well as brittle star, Christmas tree worms, some nice resident adult drum fish, spotted eels, golden eels and an occasional sharptail if your lucky. If you keep your eyes peeled out between the reefs, you may see a turtle, eagle ray or as we got lucky enough to see, a huge, free swimming green moray. |
