We snorkeled Soft Coral Garden yesterday when there was no wind. On our return, we decide to drive up the windward side and saw divers entering at sites beyond Red Slave that are normally inaccessible. The Windfinder site is forecasting 6 mph winds for today. Is there any good snorkeling on the windward side? The Porter book lists Spelonk as excellent. Anyone snorkeled that? We have been snorkeling Bonaire for 33 years and have never seen the sea so calm.

The diving is great at Lighthouse but, it's a long. shallow, rocky entry. It works when there are no waves. Honestly I don't remember what depth the reefs start but, if there are no waves, give lighthouse a try. We did the "Wild Side" dive last year. I didn't think it was significantly different than other diving though of course we didn't do any shallows.
