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.

We are so glad that your day went so well that you're already planning your next vacation on Bonaire!

Hi Marmen, We love reviews like yours and appreciate you sharing all that you loved about Bonaire and VIP Diving with us! Many guests find our location and easy drive-thru very convenient and it sounds like you got great use out of it diving 4-5 times per day! Way to go!! We're glad you enjoyed our secure storage area close to our large rinse tanks and the 24-hour access. We want our guests to feel flexible to dive on their time and have options for diving outside of our shop hours. Thanks for mentioning our fabulous, knowledgeable staff, including Jurgen, for taking you on an awesome guided dive. We look forward to your return! Be sure to book in advance to avoid disappointment as our dive shop continues to grow in popularity thanks to reviews like these :-) Thanks again! Sunny wishes, The VIP dive butlers

I returned from a trip to Bonaire on Saturday evening with a group of 10. This was our first rip that we elected not to stay at a resort that included tank and truck rental. I, as the group leader, elected to use VIP diving for our tank rental needs and I could not be happier

Hi Barrett J, Thank you so much for sharing with us your pleasant experience and for having the courage to try something new and different! You took a chance by choosing VIP Diving instead of going the 'resort route' and we're so glad to hear that it went so well that you'll be coming back to join us again next year! Our reservations team is on it, so we're glad that together we were able to sort out all technicalities and answer all questions and concerns to properly cater to your group. We appreciate your compliments regarding our prices, and flexibility regarding air/nitrox, as well as choice for your size of tank. Thank you!! We look forward to seeing you again next time! :-) Sunny wishes from VIP Diving, Carolyn and the dive butlers
