Peter (the owner) runs an extremely friendly, full service dive shop where the entire staff always happy to recommend a dive site, help you ID a fish/creature, give equipment advice or provide opinions on non-diving attractions available in Bonaire. On my first day in Bonaire, Peter rigged me up a makeshift tether for my camera (for free!) since I have... More

Small operation and boat so the service was great. If you are looking for a place to take a break from shore diving all week this is it. The boat only holds eight people so it's quiet well serviced and casual. Worked great for our group since we had the whole boat. Our dive/master captain was awesome, nice unhurried pace... More

Div'Ocean was a pleasure to deal with and provided high quality personalized service through out our trip. We had one minor problem with a depth gauge, and true to form quality service isn't having no problems. It's all about how you deal with problems that come up. Div'Ocean fixed the gauge quickly and provided a backup for the next dive... More

Everyone in our group was very happy that we chose to dive with Div'Ocean on our first trip to Bonaire. We were a group of six, mostly beginner divers. Daan, Mirjam, and Peter (our dive masters) were all fantastic. We were staying at a private residence and used the rinse tanks and storage at the shop. Four of the members... More

We rented a house for our stay and decided to use Div'Ocean as our 'home base' dive shop. It was a great decision! We got to know the staff over the week we were there, and took a few guided tours as well (UV night dives, a guided boat dive to Klein Bonaire, and a few other guided tours). When... More

We completed our PADI open water certification with Daan (the man!) who was an amazing instructor and took us to some great sites appropriate to our level for open water dives. He was super accommodating and helped us get comfortable with skills and gear. The rental equipment was great quality as well. Scheduling was extremely easy with Mirjam and Peter... More

My wife and I received our Nitrox certification and made some beautiful shore dives on our second trip to Bonaire. The wonderful customer support started with email inquiries prior to our trip during which Mirjam and Bianca were not only incredibly prompt with replies but also very courteous and informative. During the certification, Daan was very accommodating, professional, and Mirjam... More

We found DivOcean while searching for a Geocache and have been diving with them now for three years. Great staff that go out of their way providing very detailed dive site information. We have made 7 dive trips here in 6 years and we are amazed that we always find new and exciting things. Last night we did the Ostracod... More
