For my latest blog post about shore diving in Bonaire go to The Sub2o at DiveAdvisor:
As the steeply winding road took us deeper into the lush rainforest, our driver/tour guide, Roger Augustine, ran a fascinating commentary, “This national park was protected in 1904 and it covers over 3000 acres of land. We tend to have around 160–170 inches of rainfall a year.” We slowly passed the visitors information center and bustling stalls selling brightly colored local fruits and sweet-smelling spices.
Coaching people to scuba dive is something that I find personally rewarding. I love the process of watching students develop into comfortable, confident (and addicted!) divers who share my passion for the underwater world. Every student teaches me something too. Whether it is an alternative method to communicate an underwater skill, a new hilarious hand signal or sometimes even a little bit of humility.

I would like to share some of my underwater images too – please help me to identify weird critters and feel free to comment!
