The staff at Dive Friends is what separates it from other shops. Very helpful in directing us towards dives and telling us what creatures to look out for. Would not dive with anyone else

We used Dive Friends last year and we had no hesitation in using them again this year. We checked their website before we left and noticed they were doing the PADI Full face mask course and knew we both just had to try this. When we arrived at the dive shop (Dive Inn), Gordon was there and remembered us from... More

During the week of 3 October to 10 October, myself and some friends had the pleasure to again dive with this group and as usual had a wonderful time. Everytime I dive with them they make me feel welcome, remember my name, and go out of their way to help me and my friends. The make the dives enjoyable, relaxing... More

My husband and I celebrated our anniversary in Bonaire and had a great experience with Dive Friends Bonaire. The facilities were great at the different locations and all the staff we met were really nice and very helpful, whether it was with equipment rental & orientation (thanks Sean & Gift!) recommendations on dive sites, & even helping with our anniversary...

We stay on Bonaire in September 2014 for only 3 nights and that's why we wanted to enjoy the beautiful underwater world on a single day. Richard from 'DFB @ Dive Inn' offers us a realy special package, because we went by bike. Usually divers rent a pickup and go around, but it was our adventure to discover Bonaire by... More

I have nothing to say but that we are very happy about choosing Dive Friends! My wife and I got here and first thing we took the Shore Dive Padi Specialty Course…really good, we were able to dive in front of the Yellow Submarine and The Cliff. Their rental gear is really good and the staff is the most friendly... More

I'm afraid this is going to be a very dull review because there is not much I can add to all the previous 5-star reviews of Dive Friends. I can at least name check some of the people who made my diving experience so enjoyable over the last 2 weeks - so thanks to Joyce, Patrick, Chris and Ingrid +... More

This is simply the best dive school on the Island. With 5 dive shops, there is always one close to where you’re staying. A must do is visiting Klein Bonaire (coral and wild life is even better there) and the UV Night Dive (really cool experience!!) Service: The staff is really friendly and helpful with finding the right dive spot.... More
