From the start to the end everything went smoothly! Was picked up at the cruise port took a short drive to the VIP building got gear, our dive master was great getting us into the water - just 3 of us so it was nice and personal.
As we were all good with our air, we had a nice long dive.
I plan to return to Bonaire in the next year and will definitely do a package dive with them!
Of course Bonaire is noted for great color coral and Diving!

Hi Telescopemaker, Thanks for sharing your cruise experience with us and for your many compliments! We are so glad that your day went so well that you're already planning your next vacation on Bonaire! The great thing about small groups and trying to match divers with similar skill and experience level means that you get the opportunity for those nice long dives. Thanks for choosing us as we know there are many options on Bonaire :-) Sunny wishes, Carolyn and the VIP Diving team

Easily the best diving school/service on the island. Frank, Rob, and Rodney in particular are great, but you can't go wrong with anyone here. You will get an unmatched level of attention and care with this shop.

If you're debating which dive operator to go with on Bonaire, look no further, you've found "the one"!

Words can't express the amazing week I had diving with VIP — custom-tailored private guided dives at the most beautiful sites, awesome divemasters and instructors with unending patience and heart, like-new equipment + tanks with bonus air (yay 230 bar!), valet service (such a treat when you're too lazy to set up your own gear), dives as long as your computer allows (average 60+ minutes; our longest were 75 and 78 minutes), fun surface intervals (experience Bonaire sites + delicious local restaurants), great Nitrox certification deal, an educational and SUPER FUN lion-fish hunting course, I could go on and on!

Special thanks to Bas for your thoughtful and prompt responses to my millions of questions, Jonathan for being a super patient instructor and for showing me what incredible mastery of peak performance buoyancy looks like, Steven for your encouragement which helped me become a more confident diver (and for bringing out the lion-fish hunter in me!) and Daniel for sharing great laughs + shark-sighting #1 with me.

As a solo diver, the VIP team welcomed me with open arms and made me feel like a super VIP. It was a wonderful week of making bubbles + sweet memories and I can't wait to do it again.

Tip: Don't miss the lion fish hunting course — it's super fun and you'd be helping save the Caribbean reef! I never thought I'd enjoy hunting anything, but once I got my first lion fish, I was hooked.

Hi NYCLHRHKG!!! Your screen name already makes it clear that you are a well travelled internationally oriented woman. To get such high praise from you is sooooo sweet! What makes it even sweeter is the fact that you mention exactly those things that we work hard at excelling in. Personalized service, fun, safety, quality, top notch gear and top notch education, super deals and of course shark sightings and bonus air ;-) But above all it makes me happy that you got hooked on hunting lionfish :-)) It was our great pleasure having you as our VIP guest. I'm very happy that we were able to make your time on Bonaire even better! Fire away with more questions if you make it back here...we are here to help!!! Keep making bubbles in the ocean and hopefully we can take you out on some cool hunting safaris on your next trip to Bonaire. Until then the warmest regards from all the VIP boys! Bas.

The first time we went to VIP some misunderstanding happened and we were not happy at all with them. After making the only bad reviews on this platform for them.(sorry)
The owner apologize for the misunderstanding ect...
So we give them a second chance ... my husband did a nitrox certificat and we rented the aire/nitrox. We were SUPER happy with the service and the way we have being treated , like real VIP.
A special plus for maintenance of the bottles they are always in a perfect condition!
And they have solar panels on the roof zo a little green to 😉

Wow! We always look for PADI 5 Star resorts, and VIP absolutely did NOT disappoint! I cannot say enough about this dive shop and our experience while on Bonaire.

We planned to just do 5 guided dives, and then we were going to shore dive on our own...for our first time. I was reluctant--to be sure!, but after our experience with VIP, I felt so ready and capable to be on our own. And...we spent even more time with the dive masters at VIP as they were so helpful and incredible.

First, although we did not plan on this, we decided to become Nitrox certified while on Bonaire. The staff at VIP was so encouraging and helpful. We did our class with Jonathan, and then our actual Nitrox dive with Jossue. The patience Jonathan showed us is so greatly appreciated. We did our "normal" class with him, but he was so willing to answer all of our questions, guide us through our learning, and ensure we truly understood the Nitrox info.

We also decided to do our Advanced Open Water diver certification while there. Again, the staff was so helpful. They expertly guided, and balanced, our book learning, tests, and onsite skills. Jossue spent two full days with us, and he selected the perfect sites for the classes we needed. (He also made sure we saw a frogfish and seahorses which was awesome!).

Their entire staff (I wish I could remember everyone's names!) was friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and helpful. To top it off, since we were there so often with our classes, the staff regularly offered expresso for my husband, but more importantly (LOL) their fresh mint tea for me. :) They have fresh mint on site, and I enjoyed a delicious cup of mint tea each morning. The Dutch candies were also an awesome addition after each dive!

Amazing dive shop, and I highly recommend them. Although a little pricier than some, you do get what you pay for. And, we were very happy with everything!

Hi 16Bonnie, What an amazing review! Shore diving is a great adventure to undertake with just your buddy and we are more than happy to prepare you for this. You also noticed there is a lot of added value in going out diving with our instructors. It is not only good fun but we love to share our knowledge about the island and marine life and show you the spots out of the regular. Great to hear you appreciated this so much! With the PADI course that you completed you can explore even more dive sites, in a safe manner, congratulations again! Our focus is on quality in every aspect, so even the coffee and tea are VIP quality :-). Thank you for taking the time writing this great review! Sunny regards from the VIP-team, Ilona

VIP is a "Top Shelf" organization for renting nitrox or air packages! Just returned from 6 days of shore diving some of the most beautiful corals in the world. VIP has drive through service for dropping off used tanks and quickly loading more tanks in order to get the the next site. We averaged 4-5 dives daily.

Then, once completed with the daily dives, we were able to clean our equipment and access a secure room to store our dive equipment over night. The personnel was fabulous and knowledgable. We loved Eurie, who guided us on a night UV dive, which is a must do for night divers!

We will DEFINITELY be using VIP on our next trip to Bonaire!!

Hi Marmen, Thank you for calling us top-shelf for air packages! We're proud that guests can rely on us for consistent, full fills to explore, as you say, the most beautiful corals in the world :-) Thanks for telling us about how great it is to dive with Eurie (Jurgen) he is awesome! We're also glad that you enjoyed the convenient tank drive-thru, 24-hour secure storage access next to our rinse tanks and our fabulous team! We look forward to seeing you again on your next trip to Bonaire! Sunny wishes, Carolyn and the VIP Diving team

The whole team at VIP is exceptional and has been every time we have visited since 2012. We are a group of relatively advanced divers who primarily use VIP for their air/nitrox fills, but every now and then we need rental gear or just a pointer in the right direction for fixing something on-island. VIP caters to all levels and all needs, from providing nice local experience tips about entries at unknown dive sites to patiently helping with a corroded inflator button on my brother’s wing and always offering a nice cup of coffee, VIP makes you feel welcomed and at home. While we didn’t do guided dives with them this time, I have in the past and find their guides & instructors to be safe, friendly, and wonderful underwater explorers, always with a unique thing to see. With very competitive pricing too, there’s no reason to look anywhere else.

I stopped by VIP Diving after have a challenging dive day. I had fallen at a difficult dive site, rolled around in the surf, coral rubble and sand. After recovering and while swimming out to our dive site my Alternate Air Source began to free flow. None of the tricks I knew would stop it. Luckily I was still on the surface however I was most concerned about my octo. We stopped here and we greeted by kind, friendly, eager to assist dive professionals. Aaron was especially kind. He had Chris,a PADI Master Scuba Diver Trainer and equipment person immediately check out my reg and while we waited he repeatedly offered me water or some freshly brewed coffee. He was welcoming and the staff wanted to insure I was not injured when I fell. I can not say enough about their professionalism and outstanding customer service. They are a PADI shop, teach many classes, and have a massive inventory of dive equipment and gear. I highly recommend them for training, guiding and purchasing equipment. Their Customer Service, knowledge and kindness is outstanding.

We came to Bonaire to vacation and dive but primarily to help get two of our adult children open water certified. I had found VIP after researching dive operations on the island and chose them based on reviews posted and after speaking in person to Bas on the phone. We were not disappointed. All of our expectations were met we even hired them for s guided dive Josh was our guide and he was pleasant and knowledgeable. All the staff at VIP have made us feel like friends as well as customers. Maggie, Maya and Ron are top notch. For certification, guided dives or air or nitrox fills this is an excellent choice.

I have been scuba diving in the Caribbean for 10 years now. With out a doubt, VIP Diving is the absolute best dive operator with whom I have booked. I was picked up at my cruise ship right on time as preplanned, minimal time spent on the paperwork, no pre-dive bouancy checks in a pool/shallow water, choice of scuba tank sizes, nitrox or air at the same low price, well stocked shop and extremely clean. The staff I met were very friendly , professional and displayed a genuine interest in the dives I have made. Our dive guide, Eric, was very courteous, safety minded and took the time to insure we all saw many of the small sea creatures he found. He made the dives fun and interesting. I will definitely be back to Bonaire for a longer period of time in the near future. And you can be sure I will be booking with Eric at VIP Diving!

Hi Robert, That is a big compliment: best dive operator! Thank you very much for this great review! On all fronts, from pick up to drop of, the welcome and preparations in the shop, the service with a big smile from all the staff and of course the diving itself; our goal is to make it a perfect day. As we dive in very small groups - maximum 4 divers per group - all the divers have a chance to enjoy even the smallest creatures we can find and we can make sure everybody is safe and comfortable in the water. You have noticed that there are so many more dive sites to explore here on Bonaire; staying a longer period of time here is an excellent idea. Please do let us know when you plan to come back and we happily assist you planning your holiday! Sunny regards, Ilona
