Bonaire is the perfect island to visit if you love the water, snorkeling, SCUBA and marine life! I will definitely return to this wonderful island! This was my first experience as a Caribbean Island vacationer. Bonaire is encircled by a Marine Park filled with beautiful reefs and marine life of all kinds! Nearby Klein Island is a part of the Park and also has beautiful boat and shore reef diving sites. These are the only activities, so people who are searching for other vacation activities be aware. The dive shop was great for any diver's needs. The staff was very knowledgable.
As a first time ocean diver, who was newly certified, I was a bit apprehensive about my first boat dive experience. Dive Master Laurel, and Captain Orlando were extremely helpful throughout the 5 day dive experience! They led us to wonderful dive sites and explained the conditions and expectations for each site pre-dive. The dive lengths were perfect, about 35-55 minutes. Laurel was a wonderful guide/dive master and took care that we were getting the most from our experience! She helped me gear up and get into the water each dive. ( I am a senior diver so she did all the heavy lifting, bless her!) Captain Orlando kept watch up top for divers reboarding early and was right there to assist.
The Divi folks were outstanding in giving great service. The rooms were comfortable and cool, the grounds were clean and inviting, and the food was very good. The pool was refreshing after saltwater dives. The breakfast buffet was delicious and included the "Mistress of the Griddle" fixing eggs any way and pancakes light enough to please. The ocean views from the open air bars and restaurants were fantastic. We had several magnificent sunsets during dinner. Once we had acclimated to "island time" (nothing is done in a hurry) we had a marvelous time! Yes, I would return for another memorable dive/vacation experience!
