On Bonaire, diving from shore beats taking a boat

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.

But heading to and from the reefs is always a torment when it comes to enjoying my otherwise hedonistic hobbies.
