Well, the reviews are true! Was a bit worried about my first dive after 3 years, but Daniel took really good care, explained everything, and we had a great review dive. Just the 2 of us, very relaxed, over an hour at the Salt pier. Then more diving, of course, got hooked again ;) Little groups, nice new location, good... More

There are no other words than a simple thank you - 2 amazing weeks of VIP care. You gave our whole group, including three young 12 year old divers, a most memorable dive experience. Your ability to spot marine life, the beautiful diversity of dive sites, and most of all the incredible night dive! That was simply the best. Your... More

Went with the family to go diving in Bonaire, and it could not have been a better experience! The people at VIP diving were amazing and friendly, and provided the best diving experience I have had so far. I completed my advanced open water diving course there, and was very happy with the teaching methods and the sites chosen for... More

Did a discover Scuba Dive at VIP diving on Bonaire. The instructor (Eric de Vries) was a very friendly and calm person able to make myself and the other 2 participants (a couple) feel totally at ease. The onland and inpool instructions were very clear and structured and we went into the water fully confident. Under water it was beautiful,... More

Took my girlfriend there after she had done a previous discovery dive. We went two days and dived both with Kevin and Stephen. Both were very competent and gave us great service. I can only recommend this place and from the 4 dive shops we used, this one was the best.

We just got back from a week of diving in Bonaire. We are novice divers - this was our first time diving since our certification. We hired VIP for 4 guided shore dives - Frank was our guide.

Hello Columbustraveler, you can imagine us sitting here with a big smile reading we are The Best :-)! Thank you! The shore diving on Bonaire is easy accessible for almost any diver, but diving with one of our experienced instructors definitely gives a lot extra to the whole dive experience. Just as you say you don't have to take care... More

My first time at Bonaire, it was a real VIP experience! ;) Just the two of us, me and my boyfriend were the only VIP guests, so this whole trip was only about us, that made a big difference.

One of the best dive shops I've ever dived with. All the staff go out of their way to be friendly and helpful. We had just 2 of us for most of our dives, sometimes up to 4 of us. Tanks almost always slightly overfilled which was great to prolong the dive - and the guides are happy to stay... More
