The Diving Rebels Scuba Club has organized a group trip to Bonaire with an option to start your vacation with a few days in·Curasao before moving over to Bonaire.· The trip dates are September 18-21, 2013 on Curacao and September 21-28, 2013 on Bonaire.frogfish

Bonaire had no trouble earning its reputation as the “Shore Diving Capital of the World.” With gently sloping reefs, stell···ar wrecks and walls, and an abundance of marine life all within a few steps of the coastline, it doesn’t get much better than this anywhere on the planet. All you have to do is drive along the coast and watch for the yellow stones that mark each site. You can keep your own schedule, and you certainly aren’t limited to a few sites. Most of the great diving here is just a fin kick away, making this Dutch island’s first-place ranking well deserved.

If you have ever wanted to see the "Coral Spawn", this is your opportunity.· The “Coral Spawn” occurs 7 days after the 9th full moon of the calendar year.· In 2013, the 9th full moon falls on September 19th and the coral spawn is predicted to occur on September 26th.· It does not last long and this is your chance to be in Bonaire during a coral spawn.· Although these predictions are certainly not an exact science and not guaranteed ·to occur during this trip, it is well documented that various species of coral and other marine invertebrates spawn in cycles that are closely tied to the full moons in the months of August, September, and October each year.curacao5·
