Shore Diving in Bonaire - is it that easy?
kerrycorcoran - 7 days 4 hours ago.
My wife and I have been diving for about 2 years now. We have dove Cozumel (multiple times) and Roatan last summer. I’m just short of 70 dives and my wife has roughly 50 dives. We’re both solid as far as knowing our gear and how to handle ourselves underwater. Thus far, all our diving has been with a Dive Master (or guide) along with us. I have read incredible stories of how awesome Bonaire is, but the wife is a bit concerned about ’shore diving alone’. We’re able to navigate, but we have never ...

True Facts : Mantis Shrimp True Facts : Mantis Shrimp
LiveBait - 6/22/2015 5:36 PM
Mantis shrimp live in the crevices of coral and rocks or in holes they make on the ocean floor. A territorial creature, it has been known to exhibit aggressive behavior toward intruders. This ferocious shrimp has hammer-like appendages that fold beneath its body, resembling a praying mantis. With a spring-like motion, it uses these little hammers to attack prey and a mantis shrimp’s hit is NO joke. With the ability to strike at the speed of a .22 caliber bullet (50 times faster than the blink of...
