About Dive Friends BonaireDive Friends Bonaire has been providing quality scuba diving services and education since 2002. We pride ourselves on making all of our guests feel like they are visiting with friends while we help them to enjoy their dive vacation. Talk to us about your previous dive experiences and what you’d like to learn or try while you’re visiting. We’ll do our best to make sure that you leave a better diver and with many happy memories of your vacation.
All of our convenient locations are staffed with friendly, professional, and helpful divers from around the globe. We all love being in the water and take environmental protection very seriously. As a PADI Instructor Development Center, we like to think of ourselves as an Institute of Higher Scuba Diving Learning and that makes a big difference for our international dive crew. They choose to work at Dive Friends because they have the opportunity to continue with their professional scuba diving training and careers.
Another thing that we have in common is that we all love to travel. We know just what it feels like for our new guests when the first arrive on island. We’ve been there ourselves! You have a lot of questions and you’re looking for fun and adventure. We’re here to help you make that a reality.Meet Our Crew!
If you’ve been diving with us before, plan your next trip….we miss you!
“Bucket List!”#1 on my list has been to get PADI Open Water Certified. Never found the time until now. Just spent a week in Bonaire with Dive Friends Bonaire and all I can say is, why did I wait so long?!Seat_5F (TripAdvisor)
“Great shop, Friendly staff”I just finished a week of diving with Dive Friends and had a great experience. The staff was very helpful in suggesting dive sites and knew my name by the end of the week. I used all five locations at some point during the week. Dropping off and picking up tanks was hassle-free and the rinse tanks were always full of clean water.Brian M (TripAdvisor)
“Solid, customer-friendly, efficient organization”The place was well organized and very easy to use. The staff were uniformly helpful, enthusiastic about diving, and encouraging of newbies. Very pleasant vibe; hang out and have a cup of coffee or icewater (free) or beer (cheap) after your dive. Very low hassle: once signed in, just drop by any of their locations and pick up tanks.Schrodingers_Cat (TripAdvisor)
“Incredible! More than just a “dive shop”.”My husband and I spent 8 days in Bonaire and dove with Dive Friends 10 times during our stay. We completed the Advanced Open Water course first (5 dives), did two unguided dives out of Hamlet Oasis, two boat dives to Klein Bonaire and a night dive at Alice in Wonderland. The shop had everything we needed and the 5 locations make it easy to coordinate dives around the island. The staff is incredibly knowledgable and helped us gain confidence and invaluable skills. From beginner to advanced – this is your dive shop on Bonaire.Allison G (TripAdvisor)
