The Hilma Hooker is a 236-foot Dutch freighter that has a long and varied history including being used as a drug runner. It sunk just offshore in 1984 and is now the most popular wreck dive on Bonaire.

Living in and around the wreck are nurse and reef sharks, possible eagle rays, turtles, and lots of fish: snapper, angelfish, grunts, anemones, and grouper.
