The underwater bottoms of the islands of Bonaire and Curaçao. September 2012.

During the month of September 2012, we went to photograph the underwater bottoms along the islands of Bonaire and Curaçao in the South of the Carabbean Sea. We had two very strong events during these two weeks exceptional: a tarpon sardines run in Bonaire and car wrecks at 60 meters depth in Curacao. The bottoms of the region are the finest in the south of the Caribbean Sea. The scenery is very special with many species of sponges and very large colonies of corals.

We also were very surprised by the variety and number of fish species that we have photographed. Dives around the two islands are very different. The topology of the Bonaire underwater bottoms consists of a system of two reefs separated by a sandbar. The topology of the bottoms of Curaçao is a drop off which stretches from north to south.
