Hi,
We're a group of 5 going to Bonaire this coming week - we're all looking forward to it!!
We're staying at Sand Dollar and will be using the local dive shop there - I emailed them and asked about water temp (we usually go in the summer so I wasn't sure of the water temp at this time of year...) and they said 85 degrees and 60-100ft vis. 85 degrees sounds kind of warm (not complaining thou!).. Can anyone confirm that temp?

that should be just about right Diver guy....... a little cooler than air temperature.... In Jan. when we go it is about 82 at its coolest....
Not sure about the viz as that can change daily........

Welcome to BT Mike. Well right now the web cams are saying 82 and 77 degrees, I suspect it's in the middle somewhere. 85 seems high to me, plan on the coldest and you should be good to go. Personally I think it's to cold and you should send your tickets to me to protect yourself.

Thanks for the info - yeah, 85 seemed a little high.
And thank you for your very generous offer to protect me from the cold :-) Fortunately, I have enough neoprene to make me look like the Michelin man so I should be fine...
