    What did they provide for bottom and deco gases?

    That wreck was incredibly devoid of life. How deep was it?

    I used 18/30 (about 130 END) with 50 & 100 for deco. Rek Tek can provide any mix you want. The deepest part was the crows nest and it looks like 200 feet but I did not go out in the sand. I hugged the wreck so computer picked up 195 for max depth. Be safe.

    Thanks for posting the video. I have often thought about trying to do that dive. Now I don't think it is worth all the effort. I will try the east side from the shore to satisfy my craving for something "different" on Bonaire.

    After making Lionfish 'Mash' the other fish were noshing on it... so lets keep our fingers crossed...Lionfish on the menu? hum.... I was always scared of the East side :). If anyone has a cool wreck on the east side please PM me but other than that East side is nuts... but fun to buzz around with those para sail things!

    Just seeing your video, I've done this dive 3 times this year, once on air to 55meters, last 2 times on trimix to 65 meters. but do you always beat the fish to death?
    really great dive and video. My Trimix was 18/35, deco 50+95, for the 2 trimix dives,
    Thanks

    Comparing the fish life and the state of the wreck from this earlier video circa 2000 (ignore air dives, single tank and light danglies; it was a different time).

    It's obvious how much the ship has collapsed.
