Dive Friends Bonaire

What's New? Dive Friends Bonaire is a 100% AWARE Partner!

Dive Friends Bonaire brings you the best diving and services that Bonaire has to offer. As a PADI 5 Star IDC Dive Center, we cater to divers of every skill level and any age--from kids to technical divers. With our five locations and three retail stores, you're just a door-step away to your ultimate dive adventure!

INDEPENDENCE: Dive Friends is not directly connected to only one resort, people from all accommodations are welcome. If you have not yet made a decision as to where to stay while visiting Bonaire, be sure to check out the links to our partner properties--they offer many options from budget to luxurious, and they are always there to take care of your needs.

EXCELLENCE: With designations as a PADI 5 Star IDC Center, you can rest assured you will receive only the best of instruction when you take a course with Dive Friends. Dive Friends Bonaire is an award-winning, family-type dive school, as the personal touch is very important. We prefer quality instead of quantity. All facilities are fully equipped with excellent rental gear, should you require it.

CONVENIENCE: Visit Yellow Submarine, Dive Inn, Port Bonaire, or Hamlet Oasis to pick up or drop off tanks and book a course or boat dive. We'll make your shore or boat diving as easy and convenient as possible by providing you with a Bonaire Marine Park orientation at any time or dive location during normal business hours.

You'll find souvenirs, clothes, shoes, and all that you need for under and above the water at our three retail locations in downtown Kralendijk:

BlennieVARIETY: We offer basic training for the beginner through Instructor, and everything in-between. Additionally, we offer Advanced, Rescue, and many specialties to help newer divers increase their comfort. For those divers who think they've tried it all, we have skill-enhancing specialty courses such as Integrated Dive Mask and Self-Reliant Diver. Discover a new dive site with a guided dive, boat dive, or go deeper with technical diving. Experience Bonaire's night life on a night dive, UV light night dive, or a special guided night dive during the coral spawning season.

We also realize that not everyone wants to spend every minute underwater, so we offer a choice of many other activities, some especially for kids.

ENVIRONMENTAL COMMITMENT: We work hard to keep Bonaire blue and beautiful. If you're on-island for one of our famous quarterly Clean-Up Dives, we would love to have your help to ensure healthy reefs for divers to enjoy for generations.

There's a reason why we're called Dive FRIENDS! We're the friendliest dive center on the island! If it's your first visit to Bonaire, we invite you to stop for a cup of coffee anytime at any location--we'd be delighted to show you around. Whether it is your first visit, or your tenth, we will welcome you as friends! Please let us know if we can assist you in any way, by sending an email to info@dive-friends-bonaire.com.
