Comments My family of mixed diving ability was in Bonaire for a week of diving and had booked with another shop but were not having a good experience and stumbled across GOOODive.
The operation is one of the newer ones on Bonaire but the owners have been on the island for awhile. The staff was knowledgeable, enthusiastic and the customer service was excellent.
The shop has a unique do it yourself air fill station for both air and Nitrox. Their tanks and rental gear were all very well maintained and they had a well stocked dive shop with surprising reasonable prices for Bonaire.
They do have a boat but we did not go out on it so I can't evaluate that part of the operation.
We did three guided shore dives with them. The guides did a great job of pointing out interesting critters while maintaining a high degree of environmental sensitivity.
The air fills and guided dives were priced below many of the other shops on the island.
I found this to be a very friendly and professionally run operation that provided a great experience below market prices.
