|Diving with Jade Scuba Adventures in Bonaire|
Come spend your extra day in 2020 (Feb 29th) with Jade Scuba Adventures in Bonaire!
Bonaire is a world premier dive site. In the book, "Fifty Places to Dive Before you Die" by Chris Santella, Bonaire is listed as one of those top 50 dive sites!
Bonaire is home to some of the easiest and most accessible shore diving to be found. It doesn’t compare to Southern California diving! On a bad day in Bonaire, you’ll have 70’ visibility, 6" of surf, and a 20’ surface swim to your drop point over 30’ deep reefs extending down to over 100’ in a short distance.
The diving is spectacular for photographers, both amateurs and professionals.
If you are a Scuba Diver, Open Water Diver, or an Advanced Open Water Diver, there is an amazing part of the reef at every dive site for you to check out.
Our trip will start out with a buoyancy check to ensure proper weighting to prevent damage to the reef.
Enjoy night dives? Bring your special dive light - yes, the UV Type - and see the corals light up in ways you never imagined!
Jake and Ashley are excited to show you around some of their favorite warm water dive sites.

Lion Fish Hunt (optional):
For an additional $65, you can join Jade Scuba Adventures with Buddy Dive and learn how to help defend our reefs in Bonaire from the invasive, yet tasty lionfish. These are beautiful fish with all of their feather like spines. However, they are not native to the Atlantic Ocean, and because they have been introduced to an ocean with no natural predators, they have reproduced to a number damaging to the marine ecosystem.
We will be doing our specialty course through Buddy Dive and learning about these creatures and how to capture them without injuring ourselves. And, we can bring them back to Blennies restaurant at the resort between 3-5pm and they will clean and cook the lionfish for us to eat.
Lionfish are considered a sustainable fishery in the Atlantic right now. Learn how to safely hunt lionfish, bring them to the restaurant and eat the fish that was harming the marine ecosystem!
I’d call this a win for the ecosystem.Why to eat Lionfish: https://lionfish.co/why-eat-lionfish/
