Scuba world’s top destination

January 27, 2009

With another dump of the white stuff yesterday the Alpes Maritimes seem to be getting ever closer but today our attention is drawn to the underwater world where once again the island of Bonaire has again been voted the place to go for your scuba diving experience.

 Bonaire has swept a majority of the top honors and continues its domination as the world’s top dive destination. Bonaire received the number one rating in the following categories:

  • top dive destination
  • top marine life
  • top marine environment
  • top macro life
  • top underwater photography
  • top value
  • top shore diving
  • top snorkeling
  • top beginner diving

Scuba Diving magazine’s Readers’ Choice awards are selected by subscribers and web visitors who rate their dive experiences on a five point scale. The results of the 2009 awards will be featured in their January/February 2009 issue.

Bonaire is located eighty-six miles east of Aruba and offers year round sunshine, low annual rainfall, and was designated as having the most pristine coral reef environment and most species of fish in the Caribbean by the NOAA in 2008.

It offers a plethora of diving and snorkeling opportunities in addition to eco adventures, windsurfing, kite boarding, bird watching, mountain biking, kayaking, horseback riding, nature tours, hiking, and deep-sea fishing.

Check out the excellent video from wetlensproductions of not only the incredible underwater world of ski-fi like creations but also the rather cool blowcarting (a subject we will persue) and the graceful flamingoes – what an extreme destination.
