I’ve now owned my Aqua Lung Legend LUX Supreme for about a year and a half and logged nearly 50 dives with it. I’m the type of person who typically wants the latest and greatest new device every year, but when it comes to this regulator I haven’t ever thought about getting a new one. I’ve only tried about a dozen or so other regulators and before I owned the Aqua Lung Legend LUX Supreme I never realized much a difference from one to the next.
Angel City, appropriately named due to the large number of Angel Fish that seem to frequent this dive site. This site was an easy entry, but you will want your snorkel for a surface swim out to the reef. There is a buoy anchored just before the start of the reef at roughly 16ft deep. From there the reef descends to roughly 59ft. At the bottom of the first reef is a sandy bottom that is sort of a narrow shelf before you come to the second reef. The second reef then descends to roughly 150ft.
I have owned the Aeris A300 CS (Oceanic VTX) for nearly 2 years. Now that I have finally gotten around to putting this blog up I felt it was time to do a review. I went with the Aeris A300 CS (Oceanic VTX) for a number of reason. It was small, had a color screen, could pair with multiple transmitters, and it had a very sleek look. Before I get into my thoughts on the unit below are its features:
A little history
Besides being another one of Bonaires great dive dives sites the Hilma Hooker has an interesting story. The Hilma Hooker dive site is a wreck dive and the ship has an intersting story as to how it ended up on the bottom of the sea. The ship itself wasn’t always named the Hilma Hooker it was sold a number of times. Launched in 1951 the ship was named Midsland, it was later sold in 1964 and named the Mistral. She was then sold again a short time later in 1967 and renamed to the William Express. In 1975 the ship then sank off of the Dominican Republic, was re-floated and then sold yet again in 1976 and renamed the Doric Express. She was sold once more to San Andres Shipping from San Andres Colombia and renamed to the Hilma Hooker.
Calabas Reef (a.k.a Kalabas Reef) is the house reef for the Divi Flamingo. Having stayed at the Divi Flamingo we ended up diving this reef a number of times out of convenience. The Divi Flamingo has a pier in which you use for entry and exit to this site. If you are staying at the Divi Flamingo this pier is also where your lockers, air tanks, and weights are located making is extremely convenient. We ended up doing our check dive, a few early morning dives as well as a night dive here.
