Dove this wreck several times. We have always had good vis. We aim for the center bouy to drop down. 8 Big tarpons on our last dive. And a geo cache! Doesn't get much better than that! Wreck is great dive even for newer divers....More

Park 15' from the water. Easy swim to a 60-100' deep wreck. No current to speak of and fairly good visibility. Tarpon, moray eel, puffer, and barracuda highlighted the long list of sightings. Winds make it easier to navigate underwater, but I wouldn't waste the...More

We went here 2 times on our trip. The wreck is really cool, but the reef down to it is really beautiful as well. The swim out is a little bit far, but if you take your time and aren't too excited to get to...More

Diving in Bonaire is easy as all the sites are marked with a yellow stone and its name. This wreck is easy to find and not too deep so suitable for most divers.

The Hilma Hooker is a great wreck diving site on Bonaire. Entry can be a little difficult, but further left (near the entry exit rock) worked best for us. When you swim through the cargo bay, keep an eye out for spiny lobsters as well....More

Straight forward shore entry, can surface swim to bouys for decent or submerge earlier and enjoy following the wall down. Easy dive, little to no current, with a field of grass eels on the far side of the wreck, though it's slopes from 100 ft...More

Swim one of the marker buoys and descend on the line. Shore entry is very easy, surface swim isn't challenging. Max depth on this wreck will tend to be 90ish feet or so, though the guides say that the mast is in 120'. Nice big...More
