Sweet Dreams Dive site is #59 on the Official Bonaire dive site map.
This dive site is an advanced dive due to the possibility of strong currents and waves.
After an enjoyable drive through downtown Kralendijk south onto the EEG Boulevard, we located the yellow rock announcing our arrival at Sweet Dreams. We were rewarded with calm ocean waves and only a slight current heading northwest.
Following an enjoyable swim out to the drop off we were followed by this Scrawled filefish, Aluterus scriptus, and a group of Sergeant majors. Characteristically a skittish variety of fish, this one provided me with a wonderful profile pose before resuming his normal activities.
This photograph was taken at the top edge of the slope at about 40 feet. At this depth, I was unable to use natural light and relied primarily on my strobes. My camera is a Nikon D-700 in a Subal housing, focal length 32 mm, ISO 320, exposure 1/100 at f/9.0, two Inon strobes set at f/5.6: one to light the scrawl filefish and the other to help balance the background.
