    After going to Buddy's for more than a decade, my wife forgot to book several years back, we ended up at Belmar, managed by Buddy. I thought Buddy's breakfast was the best deal, easy and quick. ...

    Nick, when I saw the locals (about a dozen of them) dragging their large nets across the shallow reefs to go after the bait-ball I was appalled. I talked to the dive shop about it, it was the dive...

    I was there when they took that bait ball, or one like it. They set up nets at Tories Reef, trampled the area, dragged the nets around.... It appears the same was done in the last year at Pink...

    That was probably his time frame

    and it was about 10 years ago. Same thing happened to us, we weren't notified, AA just dropped the last leg. In my case, they just left us in San Juan. Fortunately for us, I checked then re-booked...

    you can dive in a very dark place without other divers with lights
    you get away from the reef, about 30' or deeper

    AA's prices are to high and for many of us require an overnight in Miami. It is both cheaper and more convenient to fly to Curacao, overnight in Cur, then do the hop the next morning to Bonaire....

    It's a shame DiviDivi does not consider the AA flights into Cur when making their own schedule. The late AA flight arrives to late for a flight to Bon mandating an inconvenient overnight stay.

    We also must overnight somewhere between Albuquerque and Bonaire. It works best for us to overnight on Curacao then just a short hop in the morning.

    No, they give me a variety of connections though. I can go through Phoenix if I want but that's out of the way.

    Either way, I must overnight somewhere because I cannot get to Miami in time to...

    AA is only showing 5 flights to Bonaire, all Saturdays. June 9,16,23,30 and July 7.

    Will more people visit Bonaire because AA is flying there on Saturdays?

    It seems to me that the most likely occurrence is that other flights will be cannibalized with the same passengers.

    Most of the dive ops that work with resorts (or are the resort) will do that. When you find the place you want to stay, ask them about their operation.
