Comments The diving at Divi/Dive Bonaire is outstanding. Both my wife and I need help due to age and infirmatives while entering and exiting, The help was always cheerfully given. The unlimitted dive package is one 2-tank morning dive and a 1-tank afternoon dive. Thus in two weeks I got 36 boat dives. The boats are in good condition and we experienced no maintenance problems in the two weeks. Our first week was relatively quiet with two boats going out most days. The second week was quite busy with several large groups and five boats going out most days. Despite this, the boats all left on time and we had great diving, although we learned to avoid one boat with an obnoxious rebreather diver. Serge, the dive manager and the dive operation staff were outstanding.
We stayed in the timeshare suites. They are old, but are in the process of being refurbished. Most of the furniture was new this year and in the near furture the showers will be reworked and the kitchen appliance replaced. A great place to stay and get lots of diving for your money.
