25 years ago we went to a dive shop in Vienna Virginia, just outside Washington DC. We looked at their trip board and asked " Where is Bonaire?".....we booked ourselves independently and came to Sand Dollar. We came face to face with Andre and all his staff who trained our girls even though we had an instructor in the family.... More

Bonaire Dive and Adventure is a professional and friendly operation that makes diving easier than ever. Andre and Katherine are always around to make sure you have everything you need, and to help you in any way possible. The dive shop, repair shop, open air classroom, gear storage room, tanks, weights, rinse tanks and showers are all by the dock,... More

Why anybody would go anywhere else is beyond me. Andre and the rest of the staff are always there for whatever you may need. Their facility is top notch as always. From the gear storage room, to the dock steps away, there is simply no better option. We chose to do the "Unlimited Sore Dive" package. Simply perfect. Want to... More

For more than 10 years, I've brought divers to Bonaire to enjoy the reef. When we found BDA, I stopped looking for a dive operator on the island. Andrea and Catherine are wonderful hosts and their staff, helpful and friendly. From their high quality rental gear and quick boats, to the kayaks and Jerry the naturalist, they are the best... More

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

Dove here recently and saw both the good and the bad that you read about on these posts: The good - The dock access to Bari Reef is great, easy and a nice place to start/end a trip with. - I had a problem with my regulator and Andre was very helpful in getting it fixed. The bad - staff... 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
