Dive Bonaire and Restore the Reefs 

July 11-18, 2020! 

Join us on a fantastic journey to the unspoiled island of Bonaire. We’ll be staying at the Buddy Dive Resort. During the week we’ll head out in our rental car to dive some of the 60 shore dives. The number of dives we can do is only limited by the number hours in a day...but then there is night diving! This trip will truly be an adventure.

A $500.00 deposit hold your spot. Call today to sign up!

Bonaire's pristine reefs and diverse marine life are unique to the Caribbean. Because the waters around Bonaire are designated as an official marine park, diving Bonaire is like diving the Caribbean the way it used to be - untouched and unspoiled. The island's location in the south Caribbean gives it an arid climate with little rainfall; consequently, the waters are exceptionally clear of silt, calm, and enjoyable year round. It is an ideal destination for underwater photographers. Water temperatures average a warm 78-84°F with visibility often averaging over 100 feet, and frequently, up to 150 feet.
