Here’s a fun clip that Kevin got of a spotted moray and a scorpion fish! Moray’s open and close their mouths to breathe. A few folks thought that it was defensive posturing, but I can assure you- he was just hanging out. No plans to be attacked. The scorpion fish has amazing natural camouflage and is one of the world’s most venomous fish.
Don’t worry. Kevin took these with a goPro Hero 3+ extending stick with a red filter.
Kevin got this video of the green turtle at the end of our 1,000 Steps dive. What a great experience!
Much like Ireland’s Blarney stone, London’s Piccadilly Circus, and NYC’s Time Square, Bonaire has it’s own “well you’re here- you better go see it”. It is called 1,000 Steps.
Kevin modeling the entrance
It is named this not because there are 1,000 steps (I’ve heard 64 -79), but because it feels like 1,000 steps on the way back.
Kevin for scale. I did not bring a banana
Entry way into the dive
The problem wasn’t even the steps. That stoney beach is actually a bunch of dead coral pieces that roll and disperse under your feet. This entry was tough, and while a pretty enough dive, not worth the effort.
Also there are donkeys that just kinda roam the island
After 1,000 Steps we headed to Oil Slick which was a MUCH nicer dive. I’ll post pics of underwater stuff in a later spot.
