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