What our customers say about us

We pride ourselves on making all our guests feel like they are visiting with friends. 

  •   We were staying at Captain Don's when suddenly needed to replace high pressure hose (just serviced regulator/computer!) Don's didn't have what we needed so we made the short walk to Dive Friends. Wonderful responsive staff, immediately serviced our need. Great selection and reasonable prices in retail shop.

  •   Dive Friends Bonaire is an excellent dive company. Their multiple locations make tank refills easy and convenient. The staff is so friendly and knowledgeable, my husband got open water certification through Dive Friends and his instructor, Jack, was awesome! We have been to multiple dive shops in Bonaire and Dive Friends has the best prices, quality rental equipment and the nicest staff.

    thumb Mariah S
  •   Love the staff who went out of their way to make our trip a success from servicing a regulator to driving to next shop to get a dive light. The tanks were always filled and ready to go and staff provided information about reefs, entries and recommendations. The number of locations made it super easy to accomplish a number of dives and drop off/pick up tanks. The shop had reasonable prices and helpful staff.

    thumb Michelle M
  •   Had an excellent two weeks of boat diving with Dive Friends, Bonaire. Dive Masters organized very safe, fun dives (Ally, Patrick, Flor and Alex). Bonaire is noted for it's very good shore diving, which it is, if you don't mind clambering over some rocky entries.

  •   My friends and I made our first trip to Bonaire. We chose Dive Friends as our local operator to rent our tanks and weights. Due to our location on the island, Hamlet Oasis became our “home base” of operations. I cannot comment on the dive operation regarding boat trips or instruction, but I can say that our check-in and orientation was smooth. The staff was very helpful with providing recommendations for dive sites and what to expect. They were always available to answer any questions for us. I would definitely choose to rent my equipment from them again and at this location, and if I ever decided to do boat dives or further my skills, based on my limited interactions with the staff, I would feel comfortable choosing them for those items as well.
