Relaxing and diving
I am Jenny Marchena and have worked as a dive instructor on Bonaire for a number of years.
 

Diving for a living
Isn’t it great that you can dive for a living, especially, on an island like Bonaire? And I am not just saying that because I was born here. The unspoiled nature makes Bonaire a unique island. I hope it will stay this way forever.
 

La Dania’s Leap
My favorite dive site? That has to be La Dania’s Leap! Known in the past for the practice of leaping off a cliff about 15 feet high, nowadays shore diving here is discouraged. Fortunately the spot is accessible by boat. La Dania’s Leap is one of the few wall dives on Bonaire. It is known for its beautiful canyons and sandy bottoms. Also 1000 Steps is one of my other favorite dive sites.
 

Bonaire above the water
I also find the nature above the water very appealing. The sunsets are especially beautiful. I prefer watching them from the rooftop of my house. In my spare time, I like to spend time with my son, and hang out with my friends. I love to go to Sorobon to relax and I enjoy Boogie boarding.
