Advisory for Divers, Snorkelers, or Swimmers--Portuguese Man of War in Leeward Waters
All those in the water on Bonaire's leeward shore should take all precautions due to the presence of a type of stinging jelly, the Portuguese Man of War.

From my experience generally these are NOT a problem on the lee side. In fact I have never ever seen one. However the situation changes during the rare times the island has wind reversals and the winds blow west to east instead of the the normal east-west pattern.. Then they can get blown in.
Just my personal perspective.
