I have a Surveyor on my Aquatica AD7000 housing.  Zero play.  Good luck!

Thanks for all the recommendations!  In addition to shore diving, we got out for two dives on Klein and two dives on the east coast (as others have mentioned, Bonaire East Coast Diving is still running charters).

 

I put together a trip report (with photos and video) here:

For our final full day, we considered doing some early morning dives (which would still leave us 18+ hours of off-gassing before our flights the following morning), but ultimately decided to just let the gear continue drying and enjoy a more relaxed day topside.  We had a nice breakfast at the apartment, did some light packing, then headed off in search of topside photo opportunities.  We drove to Gotomeer to see more flamingoes, then through Rincon again, headed to Boca Onima to see the ancient petroglyphs and rock paintings, stopped at Seru Largu for 360 degree panoramic views of the island (and Klein), then back to Soroban to The Beach Hut for lunch, with views of the mangroves and windsurfers on Lac Bay.  After that, we drove along the island's southern coast, stopping at the southern lighthouse, the slave huts at Red Slave, and the donkey sanctuary.  We eventually made it back to Kralendijk in time to do some souvenir shopping in downtown (mostly getting magnets and Bonaire salt), then a quick trip back to Gio's for more gelato, before catching a beautiful sunset across the harbor and over Klein.  Dinner that evening was another fabulous meal, this time at La Cantina.  Great way to celebrate the end of a very successful trip.

The next morning was an early wakeup, quick 10 minute drive to the airport, and two relatively easy flights back to LA.  Had a fabulous time on Bonaire and we're already discussing where to head next.  Thanks for reading and looking!
