Hi Guy's,

 

gpaulay,    I'm thinking you could be right with the 'gammarid amphipod' ID, the side view looks very much like I remember too.

 

Jim,      Because of my memory of the side view I'm not convinced it's a 'Caprella mutica' however I think it's spot on for another question I had in the picture below.

 

 

Many thanks to you both,   Gary.

In Topic: Bonaire truck rental recommendations ?

14 April 2014 - 01:31 PM

I cannot say as to where to rent a truck from as we got ours in with a package but I can say we had no problems while we were there over there, the advise we had was to not leave anything of value in the vehicle and to leave the doors unlocked and windows either partly or fully down, we were also told it was OK to leave tanks in the back as they are marked and have no value to anyone. As a general rule take a cheap pair of shades and non designer clothing to use while diving, get yourself a waterproof box to carry keys, cards and a small amount of cash with you and you should be fine, hopefully someone else will be able to advise you on truck rental.

 

We found Bonaire to be fabulous especially if you are into the freedom of independent shore diving just relax and have a great time.

PS:  If you fancy a genuine eating out experience ask a local for directions to 'Mikeys Sneck' and try the Iguana soup !
