Bonaire Dive

Sept 30th - Oct 7th 2023

Expedition overview

Join Matthew David Kaplan, Oceans Nation, and the Toucan Diving Bonaire team for an exciting exploration of the rich and diverse coral reef ecosystems in Bonaire! You'll have the opportunity to visit Matthew's favorite dive sites including 1,000 Steps, Salt Pier, and Turtle City, where you'll see dozens of sea turtles on a single dive.

We'll be on the lookout for a fascinating array of marine life including seahorses, frogfish, eagle rays, sharks, dolphins, turtles, octopus, squid, and a diverse range of tropical schooling fish.

We are partnering with ocean nonprofits Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire and STINAPA Bonaire. We will see first-hand the work they are doing, the challenges they face, and the solutions they are developing. Additionally, we will actively participate in volunteering efforts with Sea Turtle Conservation Bonaire.

25% of expedition net income will be donated to our Bonaire ocean nonprofit partners!
