Re: Good Sites for Low Tide?

Fun fact - Les Davis on a good minus tide will often have exceptional viz because the ebbing tide pulls the Puyallup River silt off the shore. Les Davis with great viz is wonderful!

Water Temps?!?

My gills are so dried out... sigh.

Anyone have approximate water temps for inner sound dive sites? Might affect undergarment choices...

Re: Searching for a Caribbean volunteer dive experience

I have not done any personally, but there is a TON of Coral Restoration going on in Bonaire that is pretty impressive. A google search might turn up some leads of folks to talk to.

Re: Three Parking

We had the local authorities that were working on the pumphouse yell at us about having a canopy up by the entryway because they said it blocked the way down. YMMV You might one to put the canopy up behind the 1st couple of parking spots and that way there's still plenty of Room for everybody to get...

Re: best beginner camera? (looking @ G7x iii vs TG6)

Beginner camera TG-6 hands down. And you can take it to the stratosphere. Throw in a tray and at least one strobe and you've got a really good rig.

Nice report and pictures! Thank you so much for posting! Bonaire is my happy place, and I'll be leaving for my 14th trip in just 30 days, but hey, who's counting?!

Re: Neah Bay water temps.

My guess is that since you were relatively shallow that accounted for the warmer temps. 10 degrees colder than what you experienced is not uncommon. Two great dives!

Perhaps more than you're "signing up for" but this format would be fabulous as a "guide" to local dive sites and beyond.
