Dive Friends Bonaire has been providing quality scuba diving services and education since 2002.


Independent Dive Center

Dive Friends is not directly connected to only one resort, people from all accommodation are welcome. For ideas of where to stay check out our accommodation partners.

Conveniently Located

With 8 full service locations on the island we’ll make your Bonaire diving as easy and convenient as possible. We offer the Bonaire Marine Park orientation at any time or dive location between 8 AM and 5 PM.

Enviromental Commitment

We work hard to keep Bonaire blue and beautiful. If you’re on-island for one of our famous quarterly Clean Up Dives, we would love to have your help to ensure healthy reefs for Bonaire divers to enjoy for generations.

Excellent Reviews 

Dive Friends Bonaire is an award-winning, family-type dive school. A personal touch is very important; we prefer quality instead of quantity. All facilities are fully equipped with excellent rental gear, should you require it

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 you 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.
