Dive Seven users have indicated that boat traffic can be hazardous at this site. Take care when on or near the surface and use a buoy if required.

The translation of bolones from Spanish is 'a mob, or disorderly crowd'. The chaotic arrangement of large coral heads scattered all over the bottom reflects the meaning of the name and makes for fun diving.

The Atlantis submarine occasionally visits the site, normally at the northern end of the reef, and can be seen while diving. Remember to listen for the engine's humming sound.

This site is well suited to night diving with many large octopodes.
