Hilma Hooker, Bonaire

4.4
#3 of 15 in Sightseeing in Bonaire
Historic Site Landmark
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. With our online itinerary creator, Kralendijk attractions like Hilma Hooker can be center stage of your vacation plans, and you can find out about other attractions like it, unlike it, near it, and miles away.
