Something for Every Diver at Buddy Dive Resort

With as many as 60 officially listed dive sites on Bonaire and another 20 dive sites on Klein Bonaire, the dive operation at Buddy Dive Resort is geared up for you to make the most out of your dive vacation. With a fleet of custom dive boats and a well stocked ‘Drive Thru’ offering air and nitrox tanks, every divers needs can be satisfied. To help us keep our reef environment healthy for many years to come, we do encourage all divers traveling to Bonaire to familiarize themselves with the Marine Park Regulations prior to their visit.
All levels of divers can enjoy the freedom of our unlimited shore diving package, making as many dives as they want each day, according to their own safe profiles. There are plenty of 80 and 63 cubic foot air and Nitrox tanks available at either the Drive Thru or on the dock where there are convenient benches for gear set-up and two sturdy ladders that provide easy access to the water. Rinse tanks are located at the Drive Thru as well as on the docks where there is an extensive gear storage room. This simply makes diving at Buddy’s easy and enjoyable.
One can join our experienced, friendly dive staff on our morning and afternoon boat dives. Every day of the year our custom dive boats go out to explore the many dive sites on the nearby island of Klein Bonaire, a short 10 minute boat ride away, or to other spectacular dive sites not accessible from shore.. Even Klein Bonaire is visited at night on a regular boat night dive.

Buddy’s is a DAN Member, as well as a PADI 5 Star Gold Palm Resort and Universal Referral Center. The Universal Referral designation enables Buddy Dive instructors to offer Open Water completion courses to students from SSI and NAUI as well as a host of other training organizations. In fact, Buddy’s offers every level of instruction imaginable, conducted in several languages. In addition to all the standard PADI specialties, we also offer you the chance to become an Enriched Air Certified diver, or even try out a Re-breather!

As a full service dive center, we also have a complete inventory of rental gear available. Buddy Dive guests who prefer to purchase instead of rent will enjoy shopping at our well stocked retail shop. The on-property shop carries a wide range of dive and snorkel gear and accessories, as well as t-shirts, sandals, caps, dive lights and souvenirs galore!

But of all of the assets we have, it is without a doubt our incredible dive team that makes the difference at Buddy Dive. They are known to go out of their way to make every dive a safe and enjoyable experience you won’t forget. It’s this friendly, personal service that has become a trademark of Buddy Dive Resort.

Private Dive Guide

Are you an avid shore diver and wish to step it up a notch, or simply need an experienced Dive Master that can actively assist in gear preparation, shore entry techniques and yes, point out some neat critters?

At Buddy Dive we offer private dive guide services. Whether it is day or night, we offer a private dive guide to join you. The private dive guide service can be tailored to your experience, comfort level and other wishes.

The private dive guide service offers you flexible schedules and can be booked for just you and your buddy or for the whole family and helps you getting the most out of your dive holiday.

Bonaire has unique conditions for shore diving; calm seas and overall easy access. We have selected a few dive sites which are ideal to dive with your private dive guide; either because the sea entry is a little more tricky or because the site offers some unique underwater features.

Your private dive guide is more than happy to show you our beautiful underwater world.
