Every accommodation in Bonaire has a dive centre associated with it as diving is a very big part of any holiday to Bonaire. We have not listed every dive centre but instead provide an overall guide to the dive centres generally as they all provide a very similar service.

One of the main attraction for many dives visiting Bonaire is the freedom to dive with your buddy without the need for a guide or boat trip. The whole coast line has markers for the best shore entry dive sites; the reefs around Bonaire and in amazing general condition and very colourful with vibrant marine life. Many of the dive sites are very easy with gentle shelving reefs, especially good for underwater photography. For the more experienced there are steep walls, sloping drop-offs, exciting wrecks and last, but not least, the double reef system, which will take your breath away. For over 20 years, Bonaire has maintained dedication to protecting its natural beauty and environment. The Bonairean people declared the waters around Bonaire and Klein Bonaire, an underwater marine park.

Almost all hotel will have a drive through filling station so you can simple collection you gear, get some fresh tanks, and head off to your chosen dive site. For this reason the car hire vehicle of choice in an open backed 4x4. 

Of course the dive centres also provided guided dives both around the island as well as by boat to Klein Bonaire, a small island just 20 minutes by boat from Kralendijk on the west coast. For beginners, or those that wish to progress their diving, the dive centre offer a very high level of PADI instruction.
