Bonaire Cruise DivingCruise Ship Guests – look no further for a relaxing day of diving in the world famous Bonaire Marine Park!
Dive Friends Bonaire makes cruise diving easy and convenient while offering the friendliest service and best diving to be found. You’ll also pay less and dive with a smaller group than if you had booked on board the ship…
Our dives are appropriate for divers of all experience levels. We have two tank dive excursions for certified divers and Discover Scuba Diving for those who are not certified. If you and your dive buddy are experienced divers and don’t want a guided dive, you can also just rent equipment and tanks and do an independent buddy dive from shore on one of our amazing house reefs.
No Rush, No Stress! We run a program just for you!
We know that the ships have different schedules and arrival times. We don’t want you to stress that you’ll miss the boat. That’s why we have dive trips for our visiting cruise ship guests conveniently scheduled within 2 hours of your ship’s arrival in Bonaire. We will make certain that you are back with time to spare before your ship’s departure.
We are conveniently located only a few steps away from Bonaire’s South Pier.
Certified 2 Tank or 1 Tank Excursion
Depending on when your ship arrives, we offer 2 tank and 1 tank excursions in the beautiful Bonaire National Marine Park known for its diversity of fish.
The dives will be either from boat or shore but we cannot promise one or the other beforehand as it will depend on weather the day of, cruise ship schedule, and number of guests that have signed up.
Your guide will give you a detailed and informative dive briefing and an underwater tour of the reef that will be the highlight of your cruise. After your second amazing dive we’ll take you back to our dive shop where you can rinse off, shop for souvenirs and have your logbook signed.
Discover Scuba Diving
If you are not certified you can still experience the wonder of diving in Bonaire with a Discover Scuba Dive / Resort Dive. 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.
For safety reasons, you’ll need to fill in a Medical Statement to ensure that you are fit to dive. If you answer “yes” to any of the questions, you need to have a signed medical statement from a doctor prior to in-water training.
Independent Buddy Diving
Warm, clear, calm waters make Bonaire shore diving simple and fun. You and your buddy can rent equipment and tanks and go for an independent buddy dive on one of our beautiful house reefs. Our house reefs have easy entries and easy navigation.
