Caves of Bonaire
« on: December 28, 2006, 05:44:55 pm »
With my partner and some diving buddies a leasurely holiday to Bonaire has been booked for next march.

However whilst trying to find out about the island I find the odd reference to caves and cave diving, but nothing more than a passing mention.

Can anyone here help me out on this matter?

Many thanks
Gareth

Contact me on my personal email pglanv@aol.com. Have been in the caves of Bonaire - have visited the island on 3 occasions. Over 200 of ' :bounce:em plus some good cave diving sites BUT you will have to have the right contacts. If you are a cave diver there is a good chance of doing at least one site. If you do I will be jealous as hell.  :bounce:

Peter, you probably don't want to put your email address on a public forum  :(

...or do you like spam...

are you planning to send some Les.  Wondered about that but I seem to have quite a good spam filter.  Forgot to mention I gave a talk on caving in Bonaire at Hidden Earth in Kendal about 3 years ago.

Probably the year the technical team got me started on time! Seriously have great respect for the technical team. Don't want the plug pulled if I ever give another talk.

I thought you were on a block booking  :thumbsup:
