Shore Diving: Independent & Guided

Description

Voted best shore diving for 23 consecutive years; once you experience a taste of diving freedom, you won’t want to go anywhere else. Imagine being able to dive whenever you want to, on nobody’s schedule but your own. Instead of having to follow a dive leader, you can swim at your leisure and marvel in the sights of Bonaire–Diver’s Paradise!
Our crew are always happy to recommend their favorite dive sites and keep you informed about recent underwater sightings. We also have several Bonaire dive guide books available.

If you want a guided tour of Bonaire’s amazing fringing reefs and sea life, we also offer several options for guided shore diving.

Over 60 dive sites accessible from shore.
Pick up and drop off tanks at 6 convenient locations.
Choose 6 day unlimited air package, dive by the day, or by the tank.
Sign up for a guided shore dive led by a member of our staff.

Complete the mandatory Marine Park Orientation and check out any time during business hours.

House Reef
There’s no better way to start your visit to Bonaire than with a guided checkout dive on one of our four fantastic house reefs. This way, you can attend the Bonaire Marine Park orientation and have a Divemaster or Instructor assisting you in the water with your buoyancy check.
Leeward Sites
We offer guided dives on sites between Angel City to the south and Oil Slick Leap to the north. This is a great option for newer divers who’d like to make the most of their dives with a local guide to point out interesting marine life and to do the navigating for you.

Hilma Hooker
No visit to Bonaire is complete without a dive on the famous Wreck of the Hilma Hooker. This 240 foot former cargo ship makes for a spectacular wreck that attracts a large amount of marine life as an artificial reef. You’ll dive from shore to a maximum depth of 100 feet/30 meters.
USD $18.50-$400

Boat Diving
Although Bonaire is famous for its shore diving, we have many hidden wonders that can only be enjoyed by boat. We go to Klein Bonaire five days a week, but on Wednesdays and Saturdays we head to the north only visiting sites that cannot be accessed by shore.

Klein Bonaire is the flat, small, uninhabited island off the central west coast of Bonaire that is a paradise for divers. Diving on Klein Bonaire offers a great opportunity to see turtles, since this island is now a reserve and a sea turtle hatchery.

The Northern dive sites are covered in beautiful coral gardens jutting up against sheer cliff walls.

Daily two tank boat dive 9:00 am – 1:00 pm.
Afternoon 1 tank boat dive on request (2:30 – 5:00 pm).
Hour long dives with in-water guide.
4 comfortable dive boats with places for shade or sun.
Fresh cold drinking water with eco-friendly reusable cups.
Emergency oxygen, first-aid and spare equipment on board.
Note: As an eco-friendly dive shop our boats only leave with minimum of 4 divers.
USD $90-$200
