Red slave is a challenging dive site which is suitable only for experienced divers. The currents can be very strong and treacherous. The reef has a steep drop-off and mostly consists of soft corals. Dive over the sandbar where, in early mornings, stingrays and eagle rays can be seen, to reach large fields of soft coral. Red Slave is home to barracuda, tuna and groupers.

Particulars

Red Slave lies close to Bonaire's historical slave houses. Pass Salt Pier and the white slave houses to reach the entry point. You have a reasonable chance to spot stingrays and eagle rays searching for food on the sandbar. Just keep waiting above the sand (if the currents are favorable).

Warnings

Currents can be very unpredictable. Break off your dive when currents become too strong.
