The Wreck of the Hilma Hooker

Marked site BNMP #43

Bonaire's famous shipwreck and dive site, The Hilma Hooker.

This internationally known wreck dive is located near the beginning of the double reef system. The top of the ship lies at 60 feet, the mast at 99. Shore divers will find the shallows full of fish. Boat divers will be limited to their bottom time due to the depth. This is a good place to see how corals have developed on an artificial site that was created with the sinking of the ship in 1984. It gives an idea of how long hard corals might take to recover from the damage due to storms. Depth 25-100 feet (8-30 meters).
