For our 7th trip to Bonaire I decided to eschew the package deals and book everything separately. Since we had been diving with BDA many times before, I felt good about anchoring the trip around BDA. This decision was well rewarded! We overslept on the morning of the briefing... no problem! Andre and Katherine cheerfully bundled us with another group... More

Awesome dives! Let's start by saying that Bonaire Dive and Adventure is located just feet from a great pier for diving just feet from the great Bari Reef. Owner Andre offers a great orientation, has a full service equipment room, along with his dive shop managed by the very helpful and sweet Katherine. The pier has a shower, separate tanks... More

May 23rd-June 7th, 2014 Dove with these guys on our last trip in Oct. 2011. Had mixed feelings then. (some staff were great, others were borderline grouchy - rental gear was immaculate). This time was so much better! We loved Andre’s dive orientation and Catherine was so friendly and helpful. They really made us feel welcome and had the best... More

My family and I have been diving here (Bonaire with BDA) for 12 years and when we came back this month we were looking forward to another great trip facilitated by BDA but throughout the week we were continuously disappointed. I was the only one in my family to rent gear and within a couple dives I had to return... More

Great place in which to dive. Nice dock on probably one of the best reefs in Bonaire. Well equipped, everything you need, including free nitrox. Available 24 hours a day. Excellent, professional staff. Andre was very helpful from the informative orientation, to history and stories of several sites, and restaurant reservations. He even explained how our regulator worked and ensured... More

Catherine was great in setting up our needs prior to arrival, Andre is a kind, genuine and interesting man, and Carl provided a great Open Water Referral course. Also, Percy guided us on an enjoyable night dive. The rest of the staff was very accommodating, as well. The convenience of being being next to Sand Dollar condos was incredible for... More

This was our 2nd trip renting from BDA. It is convenient to the condo we rent at Sand Dollar and we like the use of the dock for easy entry and exit. The staff is highly professional and everyone seems genuinely happy to help you have the best diving experience possible. They offer boat dives, night dives, classes and a... More

We used Bonaire Dive & Adventure as our diving base on our trip there in Jan 2014. The whole set-up is extremely professional. On arrival there was a comprehensive orientation briefing. Tanks are always available; kit is stored securely; and help is on hand for advice or tools for adjusting kit etc. Everyone is helpful and knowledgeable and there is... More

The operation at Bonaire Dive and Adventure is amazing. I have never experienced a setup that makes diving easier. There are tanks available 24 hours a day, boat dives are simple to sign up for, and the pier on Bari Reef makes entry and exit a breeze. They even have a separate area by the parking lot to make shore... More
