Shore Diving: Independent & Guided


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.

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.
