Learn to Dive in Bonaire

Would you like to be a diver? If you’ve never tried diving before, then Bonaire is the best place in the world for your first experience in the underwater world! Voted best diving destination for beginners, Bonaire is the perfect place to get your scuba certification.

Discover Scuba Diving

Try diving! After a short classroom session, you’ll put your new scuba knowledge into practice in our confined water area. You’ll practice a few skills and when you’re ready, your instructor will accompany you to the reef for a shallow supervised dive. Your Discover Scuba Diving experience will be registered on-line with PADI, and it can count toward a complete Open Water Certification.

If you don’t have time to complete any more training but want to dive again, you can do an additional dive. This time, you won’t have to complete more skills, just enjoy your guided dive.
