One person in our group unfortunately became ill and needed to see a Doctor. Ilsa imendiately picked up the phone and had an appointment quickly scheduled with a... More

Stayed at Sand Dollar condos from 6-13 Dec and had a superior experience in diving through Dive Friends dive shop during the stay. Dived off of the shop's dive boats on five trips during the week; all great. Came into contact with a bunch of really friendly, helpful and professional people--every one--on the boats and at each of the shop's... More

She must get sick of the same old stories although you'd never know, she is always so upbeat and enthusiastic! She is goes out of her way to help you with anything, including trying to find a frog fish!. Robert at Hamlet was... More

Me and my wife had our Full Face Mask Specialty Course with Richard. He, as the whole Dive Friends Bonaire, is an amazing instructor! His patience and knowledge made us love the FFM! When we get back in Bonaire, we will surely dive with them again!

I took the advanced course with Lars, great time, excellent instruction and an intelligent, personable guide to all things diving in Bonaire. The gear was well priced and the multiple locations saved us time dropping off or picking up tanks. The staff at the yellow submarine site were especially appreciated and accommodating, ensuring we were given up to date info... More

We took a class through them, enjoyed night and UV dives guided by them, and rented/stored all our equipment through them. With multiple locations we could dive different areas of the island with the same great service! We will use them every time we come back to Bonaire!!

I usually don't dive when I'm on a cruise because the dive sites are usually boring and most of the places I've tried it I get crammed onto a cattle boat with 20 divers, most of whom have not been diving in years. But this is Bonaire and even the worst dive sites are pretty good. I was paired with... More

ILSA was great. She gave us all the information we needed upon arrival and was very accommodating throughout the entire week. Definitely a plus to the company and I plan on using Dive Friends upon my next vacation. Thanks again

Dive Friends is a first rate establishment and they will meet all your diving needs. We have had our own tanks filled daily during our stay in Bonaire and we are greeted with smiles, welcomes, advice on where the best dive sites are, help in identifying fish we've seen and enthusiasm that equals our own. The staff is up to... More
