    Bonaire----"Night Dive" With Pics

    Had the best dive of my life tonight. I have been on several night dives, but tonight's was the BEST. Those of you who have dove at night already know this but your underwater lights attract "bugs". I had a 4-Foot Tarpon swimming right past me multiple times eating the little sea-life. We saw:

    2 Octopus
    2 Squid (Phosphor-luminescent)
    Several small shrimp
    Spotted Eagle Ray
    Horse-shoe crab
    Large Porcupine Puffer

    I wore the Mil Sharky, and it worked "GREAT" Unfortunately I didn't get any pics of it. I actually have only wore my dive computer on about half the dives...............















    Best Regards,
    Jason

    Very cool pics. I especially like the shots of the Phosphor-luminescent squid.

    :oops: Already posted here (I thought....). Must've gone back to the index after the preview instead of the post!


    Anyway, fantastic shots, and great lume on the squid! Like that eagle ray too . Thanks for sharing them.
    Regards, T Bone.

    Thanks for the photo's. Bonaire used to be a regular destination for us and we tried to get in at least one night dive each night.

    WOW! Great shots. To be honest, I think I'd have to change my shorts if, from out of the darkness, a stingray came swimming toward me. or anything for that matter. Thanks for sharing the spooky dive with us.

    Jason,

    That's really cool. After recently seeing a small bull shark in knee deep water (right beside me), it makes me wonder if I could get up the nerve for a night dive!

    Don't get me wrong, I would love to start diving. I think it's really great that you guys get to do this, especially on a regular basis.

    Darin, wading and swimming right off the beach freaks me out too. I can dive all day long with big seven and eight foot bull sharks, and it doesn't bother me a bit(as long as the viz is good). If I can see 'em, I'm OK. If I can't, it gives me the willies.

    I can't stress enough how exciting diving is. If you get the chance to learn, take it. If you don't get the chance, make it happen. It's an adventure of a lifetime.
