We were recommended to VIP Divers by a prior customer’s glowing recommendation. I contacted them, and they followed through quickly. The quoted price struck me as a little high, but not high enough to dissuade me. I’m glad it didn’t. We were on the cruise ship, and we were promised we’d be met at the port, and transported to the... More

We were on a cruise ship but wanted to do smaller, more personal dives. We booked with VIP and even though we had little time off the ship, they worked with our schedule. We weren't able to drive too far but hit two great dives: Hilma Hooker and the Salt Pier. The guide was great and everything seemed well organized.... More

Hi Jonathan, Thank you for this great 5 star review! We always try to find a way to work with the schedules of our guests on the cruise ships; we can surely say its tailor made and the good organization helps us to spend us much time underwater as possible! And luckily you don’t have to go far on Bonaire... More

Hello Kasia, What a wonderful review; thank you so much for taking the time for writing this! Your course groups were exceptionally small but anyway we will never schedule more than 4 divers or students in a group.

Great dive school. You get the type of personal attention that I haven't seen in other dive locations. When you enter the school, a kind of tranquility surrounds you that makes you feel totally relaxed to go diving with them. Very professional staff. Never in a hurry and always 'client first' attitude. Keep up the good work! Will definitely come... More
