"On Bonaire, diving from shore beats taking a boat" - We agree! #scuba

"On Bonaire, diving from shore beats taking a boat" - We agree! #scuba | Scuba Diving | Scoop.it
Scuba diving and boating are two of life’s greatest pleasures, but together they amount to a disastrous cocktail of seasickness and diesel fume asphyxiation for me. Once below the surface, the rough seas and engine smells don’t even seem to exist as I sink to the ocean floor, entranced by the aqua world around me. But heading to and from the reefs is always a torment when it comes to enjoying my otherwise hedonistic hobbies.
