Comments I've been to Bonaire many times and always enjoy the wonderful and healthy reef. Yes the western Pacific is even better, but Bonaire is much closer, more convenient, and a superb value.

This trip I took 4 college students and we stayed in one of Buddy's 3-bedroom apartments. The apartment has been renovated and was much nicer than I was expecting. Our housekeeper deserves sainthood for cleaning up after my messy roommates each day.

Our package included a very nice buffet breakfast and egg station. The food was hot, fresh, and very good. We made lunch in the apartment each day and then went out to different restaurants each night for dinner.

We did all shore diving with one of Buddy's trucks and did not do any boat dives on this trip. Bonaire is THE place for shore diving! The dive staff at Buddy were great and the Nitrox was free. A good time was had by all.
