Shortly before Christmas, my buddy Steve Edgar and I visited Bonaire for the 4th time. The high point of our trip was a day of guided dives on the East Side with the legendary Bas Tol. With the amount of experience Bas has on Bonaire I expected him to be WAY older than he actually is. The guy has over 3000 dives on the East side. Turns out, 1) he's been doing it since childhood, and 2) I think he must look pretty darn young for his age!

Great report! I went to Boka Onima a few weeks ago to check it out (way too windy to dive it that day unfortunately). I thought my friend was kidding when he told me that you enter via giant stride off the cliff. Guess not! Sounds fun, can't wait to get back and try it.

OK, I'm hooked on trying the East End. East End Grand Cayman rocks, so why not on Bonaire also? Throw in a 15 foot stride and it should be a blast.

From Spanish, probably a "mouth"?

Thanks, Other Bas, nice to see you again too, and glad to see your business taking off. Derk was a great guide as well.
