What our customers say about us
We pride ourselves on making all our guests feel like they are visiting with friends.
Dive Friends Bonaire really lives by their motto "without blue there is no green". They generously donated tanks to support our research teams investigation on the importance of parrotfish on coral reefs. The general manager Bart also worked with me to launch a citizen science project so that guests can help monitor Bonaire's parrotfish populations- the crew have been incredibly supportive in this as well. I was frankly floored by how supportive the shop is to supporting our research and protecting Bonaire's reefs in general.
Thank you all for your dedication to reef conservation!! A particular thanks out to Caitlyn and Roos for helping organize a public talk, Steve for logistical support, and to Jason for helping out with monitoring! More
We've been to Sand Dollar 8+ time and have dove with Andre's Bonaire Dive & Adventure and loved it. Since they closed, Dive Friends have taken over the dive operation at Bari Reef. They are fine, but not outstanding. Lot more regimented and concerned about liability, seems like. It's a large operation with multiple shops, so staff seems less personable. BDA would send a boat if you showed up at the dock on time, even if you were the only diver, Friends will only go with minimum of 4 divers. During our more recent stay with Friends, we noticed that the equipment on the dock is not as well maintained. We had one day where nearly all the tanks had bad o-rings. We've also had issues with the Nitrox checkout station. We miss Andre's personal connection. More
