Two frog fishes, a seahorse, and a turtle.....on top of all of the usual great tropical fishes, colorful corals and sponges, and large tarpon. Very easy to navigate.

If you have never shore dived this is a good starter. Easy entry and variety of fish. Plenty of parking close to the shore. You can snorkel close to shore and still have fish to see.

Scuba diving the Bari Reef in January 2016. Very nice dive site. Easy entry. Very diverse corals and sponges. Easy dive. Very little current. Amazing fish population.

This is a nice reef just north of Kralendijk. It is situated next to a beach but the entry is fairly rocky. This can be a little tricky if there is some surf. Once in the water the reef is great.
