Harbour Village is Bonaire's premier resort located on a superb, white sand beach, a few metres from the warm Caribbean Sea.

Our Confidence is a 60 foot, Danish fishing boat, 25 metres from the beach. Snorkellers will enjoy this too – but "wreck diving" doesn't come any easier than this!

On Bonaire most diving is shore diving and snorkellers can enjoy the shore entry sites too. 51 shore diving sites means you can dive/snorkel when you like and pretty much where you like. Our famous DDD offers give the best possible price for a diving holiday and all divers can enjoy the freedom of our unlimited air package, making as many shore dives as they want, to suit their own capabilities and comfort levels. "Unlimited air" means what is says. As much air as you want. Bonaire is a small island, refills are never far away. To make the most of this freedom, to get to all the shore entry sites and explore the island, most visitors hire a vehicle. Driving is easy and on Bonaire you are never more than 20 minutes from Harbour Village or 5 minutes from the ocean. We can arrange vehicle hire at a lower rate than you would pay on island. Custom built dive boats are available, of course, for divers and snorkellers, comfortable and well equipped for the very short ride to the dive sites. Boats take very small groups, usually 6 to 8 divers and snorkellers and at most sites there will be just you and few (new) friends. This means boats can get booked up very easily.
Booking your diving, vehicle hire or other services for your holiday with us, will save you money and it will then be part of an ATOL protected holiday itinerary. That service will be ready and waiting for you on island and avoid possible disappointment.
We work closely with the dive centre at Harbour Village which has a full range of equipment for sale or hire, instruction courses for all levels including complete beginners and day/night guided dives.
