Besides your waterproof camera, you’ll also want to bring proof that you’re scuba certified. For the best experience, we recommend researching and getting certified by an official online scuba course before your arrival.  Our waters and reefs are protected by the Bonaire Marine Park, which enforces regulations like required tags and a park orientation session before diving. Since 1979, the Park has cared for the marine environment surrounding Bonaire and Klein Bonaire and provides safe recreational opportunities.

After those regulations are taken care of, over 90 dive sites await you with a variety of beautiful coral, anemones, and reef fish. Dive Friends Bonaire offers several diving services including shore diving, boat diving, dive courses, and a retail shop for any equipment or gear you may need during your Bonaire scuba diving adventure. They offer a variety of courses, even kid-friendly dives for children aged five and older, as well as classes to enhance your diving skills. They can also assist you with your scuba certification or introduce you to scuba. Reservations can be made online or you may email your request or questions to  If you’ve gone diving before, stores with Nitrox and Tri-Mix fills, Rebreathers, and other rental gear and souvenirs can also be found.

If you haven’t, several of these stores can also help complete the open water portion of your diving certification process. Either way, you’ll find the area makes for a perfect diving experience.
