Divers and snorkellers can enjoy the ocean - a few metres from their room. Bonaire is famous for its wonderful diving and snorkelling and is officially recognised by the NOAA as having the most pristine coral reef and the most species of fish in the Caribbean. Bonaire is consistently voted the "Best Overall Dive Destination" by divers. The Reef Environmental Education Foundation has 8 of Bonaire's dive sites in their top 10 Caribbean sites in terms of species richness. Click the diving and/or snorkelling links above for more information on the fantastic diving and snorkelling on Bonaire.
On Bonaire most diving is shore diving and snorkellers can enjoy the 51 shore entry sites too. Shore diving means you can dive/snorkel when you like. Our DDD offers are the best possible price for a diving holiday. "Unlimited air" means what is says. As much air as you want, and 24 hour access to fresh tanks, so you don't have to stop when the sun goes down. 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 Plaza Resort 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 for divers and snorkellers, of course, 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. At most sites there will be just you and few (new) friends. 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 be part of an ATOL protected holiday itinerary. It will guarantee that service will be available to you on island and avoid possible disappointment.
We work closely with the resort and the dive centre at Plaza Resort, a 5-star PADI Gold Palm IDC dive centre, which has everything divers and snorkellers need. A full range of equipment for sale or hire, instruction courses for all levels, including complete beginners and youngsters. Guided day and night dives are available. Divers are asked for a contribution of $25, and snorkellers $10, to the Bonaire Marine Park for the protection of the reef and the ocean. Payable at your dive centre. Wear your tag with pride. This contribution entitles you to free entrance to the Slagbaai National Park.
NB tanks are A clamp and, if you have DIN fittings, you will need to bring a converter with you - or hire one on island.
