We have just spent 16 wonderful days in Bonaire diving with the team from VIP. And the clue is in the name - we were treated just like VIPs. We were looked after throughout the trip by Ilona and Frank, and I can say for both of them that nothing was too much trouble. Ilona would even bring along a... More

When researching where to dive in Bonaire for our honeymoon, my fiancée and I spent hours on TripAdvisor and read about every dive shop in the area. VIP was ranked #1, and after delving into tons of community reviews, we booked with them. HOLY COW! Better than we ever could have imagined. We are beginner divers and did 4 guided... More

Thanks to VIP Diving for their excellent service and location. This is a must do specialty, not only for the fun, but also for fighting against the invasion of Lion Fish in this area, treatening the beautiful reefs and other fishes. Jonathan Oosterhof it was fun to dive with you and learn these skills 👌👌👌.

VIP diving is rated #1 in Bonaire for diving which is evident by their professionalism and friendly service. Friends recommended VIP based on their experience diving with VIP. My husband and I (60 +), familiar with Bonaire and experienced snorkelers contacted VIP about the possibility of arranging 1:1 guide for snorkeling since we needed some extra assistance. We had a...

Hi KbR142015, Here at VIP Diving, professionalism and friendly service are two values we think are of great importance. It seemed it pays of because your friends recommended us on their experience! Snorkling or diving trips, we always do those trips on maximum 4 people. Smaller groups means better value and more personal! And whenever some guests need extra assistance,... More
