Hilma Hooker, Bonaire

4.6
#2 of 8 in Historic Sites in Bonaire
Now the stuff of diving folklore, Hilma Hooker is often considered one of the best shipwreck dives in the Caribbean. The vessel sank in 1984 after a vast amount of marijuana was found onboard. Now the 70 m (229.6 ft) vessel lies on a sand flat between two coral reef systems commonly known as Angel City. In clear deep blue waters, circle the perimeter of this dramatic wreck then swim in for a closer look alongside shoals of tarpon and parrotfish. With depths varying from 20 m (65.6 ft) to 35 m (114.8 ft), the wreck has spots for both beginner and more advanced divers to explore. Put Hilma Hooker at the forefront of your travel plans using our Kralendijk road trip planner.

  • Everything in the other reviews are right. Its a wreck dive, easy to see yada yada...but if you are working within your Recreational limits and not deep certified it may not be worth your time...  more »
  • Bonaire is an awesome place to dive because most dives are accessible from the shore after a short dive. Its an easy walk in from the shore and a short (50m) swim on the surface to the shot line...  more »
