I dove with VIP for almost two weeks and had an excellent experience. I had originally signed up to use another shop (a local tech diving operation) who closed for the day without notice leaving me with no air for the day, so I went to VIP and was diving within the hour. Went on 2 guided night dives and... More

VIP Diving really has your back and will take care of you and all your dive needs. They are very professional, friendly, helpful and accommodating. We dove with them while on a cruise and the picked us up at the port and dropped us off. The dive shop is very nice, clean and close to the cruise port. They took... More

VIP has it all. I am a quite experienced diver (700+) and I loved to dive with VIP during my three week-stay in Bonaire. Great, helpfull staff, impressive venue, excellent service, beautiful shop, excellent gear, and you will always feel welcome when after one visit the staff will probably not only know your name, but are really interested and will...

Had a great time with this dive shop. The rented equipment was in perfect conditions. The dive masters were the best, completely took care of us. I'll definitely go diving with them again when in Bonaire!

Diving with VIP was top notch. Friendly, accommodating, helpful - the whole package. Helpful staff, great Dive Masters (thanks Krista!!), modern and clean facilities. They provided sandwiches, fruit and drinks between dives. Afterwards, they hung out by the cruise ship and had a few beers with us. Sure hope to make it back to dive with them again some time!

Everything about VIP diving is first class...from the first email they sent answering all my questions reassuring me that my 2 year absence from diving would be no problem. Josh picked me up from the cruise ship and took me back later in the day. From beginning to end all was handled so well and made me feel at ease...2... More

I generally refer to myself as a nervous diver, not after this week!! VIP made it comfortable for me. We hired them for guided diving during our 8 day stay. Yes, Bonaire has easy access diving, but one has to know what they are doing because there is lot of navigation involved. VIP took us to the best spots and... More

Hi Renee S, Thank you so much for this great review and so highly appreciating the added value of the VIP dive guide! Indeed we do know the best dive spots and also the 'off the beaten track' dive sites. And as we never dive with more than 4 divers per guide all divers get the best opportunity to enjoy... More

While on a cruise with friends we wanted to go diving. Our friend did some searching and found VIP diving. All I can say is awesome. We had a large group and they accommodated us. The dive masters were so professional. Krista had a way of making you completely at ease. My boyfriend was on his first dive since he... More

Hi Audra R, For a second you fooled us as we do not dive in large groups.....but of course we sticked to our policy of not more than 4 divers per guide and that is why you did not meet one but you met a few of our professional dive masters. So when you plan your family trip to Bonaire... More

VIP showed us a great time on so many dives that were easy to get to. We had knowledgeable guides who picked sites that suited our skills. We also received additional training for PADI advanced certifications and had the best learning and skill dives ever. Saw great fish and wonderful coral life all the time in each and every dive.

Hi Abe B, Bonaire has a wide range of dive sites and based on diver's experience and interest we try to pick the best sites for each dive group. As our dive groups are very small - not more than 4 divers per guide - it always works out great: fun and safe long dives! And when training allows we... More
