Bonaire Dominates With Nine #1 Ratings Including #1 Dive Destination in the Caribbean/Atlantic

Once again the island of Bonaire has swept top honors while continuing its reign as one of the world’s top dive destinations: For the seventh consecutive year , Bonaire has been rated the Top Dive Destination Overall (Caribbean/Atlantic) in Scuba Diving magazine’s Readers’ Choice Awards 2008.

Bonaire also received the #1 rating in eight other Caribbean/Atlantic categories: Top Marine Life, Top Marine Environment, Top Macro Life, Top Shore Diving Destination, Top Destination for Underwater Photography, Top Destination for Beginners, Top Value, and Top Snorkeling.

"This certainly demonstrates that Bonaire is the Diver’s Paradise. To have received nine #1 rankings reinforces that Bonaire’s continued vigilance and efforts to protect the island’s coral reefs are producing a superior dive product and in turn an amazing dive experience for our visitors," said Burney el Hage, Commissioner of the Tourism.

"Such constant diver support clearly indicates the value of conservation and preservation efforts, such as those afforded by the Bonaire National Marine Park. With roots going back as far as 1979, the park set a high benchmark for today’s marine environmental standards", said Ronella Tjin Asjoe-Croes, Director of Tourism Corporation Bonaire (TCB).

For the Reader’s Choice awards, thousands of Scuba Diving subscribers and web users rated their dive experiences on a scale of one to five. Results of the 2008 Awards will be featured in the January/February 2009 issue of Scuba Diving magazine.
