I need to agree that the values of this company have been met for sure. Real value for your money and a personal touch: We choose to do the AOW course and instead of doing these dives on the house riff, as many other Dive companies do, we visited different kind of locations with our instructor Jonathan (who has some...

Eric and Steve and the rest of there crew are top notch dive masters to work with. They have a excellent Dive shop and gear to work with. They provided us with 2 excellent dives and lunch between the dives. We had a group of 12, 5 of us dove and they catered to those that didn't dive and helped... More

I was on a cruise in the Caribbean in January and visited Bonaire. Having passed my Openwater in November I was keen to dive here but I had my 19yr old son with me who had never dived and wanted to try it. Organised in advance, VIP gave us a two tank day, giving my son the Discover Dive course... More

I signed up with VIP diving to take an Advanced Open Water course. From the first contact with them via email I felt that there was a difference in how they go about business. I had sent over a dozen emails to dive shops in Bonaire and while some didn't respond at all VIP responded with the most detailed information.... More

We scheduled a day of diving with VIP from a cruise tour in January, as we don't book "cattle boats" for diving, and I had researched on my own. However, anything I expected was countlessly and continuously surpassed by the staff, from the minute we were met at the pier. YES, Dutch coffee is the best! Have a cup when... More

Awesome! The people at VIP Diving are the best. My wife and I had the pleasure of spending a day in Bonaire while on a Carnival cruise. This is now our favorite cruise destination. Let me preface by saying I'm not a diver, I do however love to snorkel. My wife is a diver and she wrote a review based... More

You couldn't possibly find a better dive shop than VIP Diving in Bonaire. They are careful and considerate, and think of everything so you can just enjoy yourself and have a great dive in beautiful Bonaire. Remember to ask for Jonathan, he's the best guide you can find, and can dive on half the air everyone else is burning through.

I wandered in solo on 12/24 (a busiest day of year), disgruntled by a Princess (yuk) cruise dive shop connection and a gorgeous, Danish sweetheart took this 68 y/o lady on a 1 hour spectacular wall dive. They included free GO PRO photography (my camera had died) and downloaded it the videos to my hard drive! Then,perfect dive buddy drove... More

VIP diving is first class, get to see the island and two great shore dives! Johnithan is a great. I also joined three other divers from carnival sunshine on January 21 st and we had an awesome time! Also left my wetsuit by accident after rinsing and they have gone out of the way to get a hold of me... More
