<% Case 2 x = 22 PageSubtitle = "Dive Bonaire" %>

Over the last two decades, Bonaire has consistently ranked as the finest snorkeling and scuba diving destination in the Caribbean. A major reason for this prominence is the island's diligent stewardship of its marine resources -- all of the waters off Bonaire's coast have been legally protected since 1979, and it shows.

We will be staying at the famous Captain Don's Habitat. For over 25 years, Capt. Don's Habitat has been known as "the home of diving freedomC" ...24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year! Starting out as a small diver's haven built by Capt. Don back in 1976, Habitat Bonaire has kept that friendly, family feeling while evolving into a world renowned resort. Set amidst lush green gardens with colorful decor and landscaping there are 3 deluxe varieties of accommodations: Junior Suites, Cottages, and Oceanfront Villas.

After diving, or in our case; between diving and sleeping, Habitat has a wonderful fresh water pool and secluded beach. Dining at Rum Runners won't take you far from the sea as you enjoy the view from the terrace at the water's edge. At night the new Rum Runners Bar comes alive with divers telling tales and dancing to the smooth Caribbean rhythms.

We will also be diving with Dee Scarr at the pier in downtown Bonaire. Dee Scarr is an environmentalist and experienced naturalist whose goal is to help you better understand marine creatures - first-hand on TOUCH THE SEAR dives.

A scuba and specialty instructor, Scarr has published three books: Touch the Sea, Coral's Reef, and The Gentle Sea, and her articles and photos appear in The New Guide to the Bonaire Marine Park, Dive Training, Skin Diver, and other publications.
