We have made numerous trips to Bonaire and always enjoy diving La Machaca. It is an easy dive from Captain Don's and Buddy Dive. In past years we have encountered a huge green moray on the small wreck. No luck this year though.

La Machaca is both a great dive during the day and night. The wreck is very accessible in 45 feet of water and holds a variety of life. At night the Tarpon come out and follow you around the site.

Hubby and I kicked out here from Buddy Dive's dock. The wreck itself is pretty small and easy to get to. Only entertaining for a few minutes, so we kept on going (north), and found ourselves at a familiar place - dive site Small Wall...More
