A scuba diver and a lone jack swim by the bow of the wreck of the Hilma Hooker, Bonaire.

The Hilma Hooker is Bonaire's most popular wreck dive is a 236 ft. cargo vessel from Columbia that is sits in 90 ft. of water. In 1984 the Hilma Hooker ran into some problems while passing through Bonaire where it was towed into the town pier in Kralendijk. Immigration officials searched the boat because she carried no papers. When the boat was search 25 000 pounds of marijuana was confiscated.

Afterwards the boat was moved to a mooring bouy and not long after that she rolled on her side and sank to the bottom. After her sinking local dive operators got teams of volunteers together and turned the Hilma Hooker into a safe wreck for recreational divers.
