      Martijn was amazing
      Martijn took excellent care of our family. We had a few hiccups from missing gear and broken fin straps to my mouthpiece busting off as we began the dive. Martijn and Heather kept their cool and kindness and took excellent care of us. They knew exactly where to go and how to find sea creatures big and small. It was an excellent experience and we will definitely use VIP Diving for future Bonaire Dive trips.

      Great diving!
      I went diving with VIP Diving when y cruise ship, the Carnival Horizon, stopped there. Pre-trip they were very clear in their communications, so pickup went without a hitch. Ron was a great guide! He let us know exactly what to expect. Just as we submerged we saw a spotted eagle ray. Spectacular! We saw all kinds of life and our guide was great at pointing out the smaller things that we would have overlooked. I'd give them more than 5 stars if I could.

      VIP Service
      I booked the two tank dives for the day on a cruise ship stop. Ron was waiting for me with a sign held up immediately outside the port. The two shore dives are what Bonaire is known for and were excellent dives. The shop is a first class operation that I would certainly recommend and would book again with. A sandwich, cold sodas, and water were provided and the sandwich quite good. After the dives we returned to the shop where multiple rinse tanks were available so I could clean my equipment and repack. (This beat the hell out of cleaning in the cruise ship shower!). There are no negatives to offer other than caution is warranted on entry/exit over the rocky shoreline. Ron was there though to steady you though🙃. The only regret I have is having to leave so soon and leaving my nifty new water bottle they gave me there.

      Tec40 certification was amazing!
      I spent several days with VIP obtaining my Tec40 scuba certification and I cannot say enough good things about the instructor (Martijn), the shop, and every employee we met. The level of professional and commitment to providing a fun, safe, and educational experience was truly top notch. I look forward to bringing my niece and nephew for an intro to scuba experience later this year.

      Exceptional VIP staff
      Just completed a PADI professional class at VIP and have to say it was a great experience. The vibe inside is amazing. Very different to other shops on the island. No egos, friendly staff. Every day the staff were friendly and courteous, always there to help. At the end of the class, the staff put on a recognition party for all the successful professional classes achieved. Maarten has a great way with students, very calming, and amazing to learn from. I am humbled by the experience. Look forward to another class in the future, maybe tek .....

      VIP DIVING BONAIRE
      VIP DIVING provides a friendly, professional and comprehensive scuba facility. They were gracious in rescheduling and providing rental gear, when our personal gear was delayed by the airline. They also provided ample air tank exchange at the resort we stayed at. Making it so easy to get in as many dives a day possible. My wife and I highly recommend VIP DIVING !!

      Beautiful Bonaire
      Not only did we have the best diving of our lives while in Bonaire but the team at VIP made sure each dive was different than the last. The equipment we rented was top notch and the whole process with them flawless. We did several days of guided dives and all the dive masters were great, but we have to give a special shout out to Martin whose sense of humour and enthusiasm made the experience one we will never forget. We we were all ready to get in for our last dive and when he realized it would be our last he said let’s hop back in the truck YOU MUST SEE KARPATA! And he was right it was absolutely stunning. Thanks so much to Martin and the rest of the VIP team for giving us a five star experience. I am sure it will not be our last time in Bonaire.

      Great service as always!
      After a few years of not being able to dive I booked a private session with Jan to get comfortable again under water. Which I followed up with a guided dive hosted by Jonathan. The service has been great as always with attention to detail and constantly monitoring the safety and wellbeing of their guests under water. 10/10

      Best Diving Experience
      VIP diving gave us our best dive experience we have had yet. Everyone is so nice and accommodating and knowledgeable. They took us to awesome dive sites, asked where wanted to go and what we wanted to see. We can’t wait to go back and dive with them again!

      Top Notch Dive Center
      VIP Divers is a premier dive organization with amazing service and staff, convenient location, drive through tank exchange, repair services, and about anything else rive related you would need. We could not be happier with them during our week here. We did 2 guided dives with Maarten and he was super good at explaining the island, dive sites, helping us get in and out of each location, and was just generally a great person to talk to. The rest of the week we used their tanks/weights and it was extremely easy and set up well for tank rentals. One of our First Stage's had an issue and they were able to do an overhaul and get it working by the next day. We will for sure dive with them again on our next Bonaire Trip. Highly recommend them and they are one of the top shops we have dove with anywhere.

      Perfect
      Did a two dive trip coming off a cruise ship. It was perfect. The small group thing is real and a huge selling point to me. They were there on time and really took care of everyone. They even helped put on my dive fins (not used to shore diving). Food was good; they handled my vegetarian request without having to be reminded. You even get a mini tour of the island with the dives. Nicole knew which sites would be good on that day and where to look for everything. She was also very patient with me as a beginner diver who needed some help. There is no reason to consider any other company. I can’t imagine how they could do better.

      The shop was very convenient and accommodating. Very easy to get tanks, both pick up and drop off! The storage locker for dive gear made it easy to get all our gear dried before our flight home as well.

    No offense to Buddy Dive, but this is the best dive shop on Bonaire. The service is excellent, the facilities are calm, clean, and efficient. It is centrally located and the staff are amazing: professional, kind, knowledgeable, and helpful. We have used them for two trips and super consistent. We have also used them for dive guides, both for boat trips to Bonaire and night dives and the guides they have are awesome. Super friendly, very knowledgeable, and know how to find the right stuff underwater!

    We have used Buddy Dive on a previous trip and while Buddy Dive is fine, VIP is a world of difference and much, much better.

    Fourth time to dive Bonaire and fourth time to buy from VIP. No need to attempt finding something better than perfect, which is always our experience with VIP. Not only are all of the employees there knowledgable and friendly, they have replacement parts at very reasonable prices. My inflator valve started leaking beyond repair and Jonathon installed a new valve for less than I would be charged in the States. I highly recommend VIP!!

    Our trip was outstanding. VIP Diving did an absolutely exceptional job, to include scuba diving basic diver instruction, refresher course (Martyn in particular was an Excellent instructor), and diving gear rental. We cannot imagine a more professionally run operation. Thank you!!

    After three years we could finally came back and experienced the same wonderful, personal, helpful & fun service and fantastic, gorgeous shore diving as last time!
    We booked two guided dives to get back into it and had a great time with Chris. The following days we went off on our own, but always checking in at the shop letting them know where we were going or getting great tips from Jonathan. Masha Danki to all of you! We hope to come back sooner this time!

    Going to Bonaire on a vacation and was diving by myself , first time shore diving. My Hotel recommended this dive shop. To many good things to say ! First, communication was prompt and precise when scheduling what I was doing before I even went down to Bonaire. When I arrived, super friendly and professional dive staff. Nice facilities and very clean. Staff was super accommodating to my needs. Equipment - set me up wit good , up to date equipment. All of my stuff was very nice (shorty, bcd, regs, etc.& tanks + drive thru ) I had a guide for my dives (since first time) and every day went some place new. The guides were friendly, no pressure and went at every ones pace. I personally cannot say enough about this place. If I were to go back I would certainly connect with them again. There location also puts you closer to the south diving side of the island. not far from pier side dive sites. They also have a great learning center for advanced training.

    This was our second time diving with VIP. They are truly a top notch, full service operation. The staff at VIP care deeply about safety and following PADI standards. The shop as always is meticulously clean and organized and they adhere to strict COVID protocols to keep people safe. We also loved their on site gear storage room (open 24/7) for guests along with access to wash bins.

    We did a few guided dives to get started but then dove the rest of the week on our own. Kevin was super helpful when my inflator hose started leaking. Pascal also helped us out when my husband needed a new mouth piece for his regulator. Bas was also incredibly welcoming and answered all of our many, many questions with a smile.

    Given their eye to details, we are now considering doing our instructor training with them in the near future.

    Highly recommend diving with VIP!

    We went with Dive Friends for our tank refills. We primarily talked with Jonathan, who was kind and went above and beyond to explain his favorite sites, hidden wonders of the island, which sites had the "conditions of the day" (he tipped us off to a low-wind day in the south, and we ran right to it and experienced BEAUTIFUL conditions).

    He also directed us to the "local seahorse" at the Sebastian's dive.

    We just loved them as an outfit and Jonathan as a resource.

    My wife and I are very happy we worked with VIP Diving while on vacation in Bonaire. Our Nitrox package was paired with our resort and provided by VIP and it was super convenient. We had tanks and an analyser available at the resort as well as at the dive shop as a drive through service. So easy and provided more time for us to enjoy the beautiful island.
    We also utilized a few dive guides during our time there and everyone was just great. Patient, knowledgeable, and low key; traits we very much enjoy in someone tasked with showing us a good time. Thank you all so very much.

    We received a week of unlimited air fills with VIP dive as a part of our hotel package. It ended up being a great solution for us with our hotel only a few blocks away. VIP diving also had a great gear room where we could leave our stuff when we weren't diving. The staff was pleasant and helpful, freely sharing advice on their favorite dive sites. Two things that could have been better: 1. the gear clean out area got kind of gross. The water in the dunk tanks was really dirty and a bit smelly and definitely didn't make me happy about "cleaning" my gear in there. 2. I noticed some other operators had multiple locations around the island, which could have been helpful - we just took enough tanks to last us the whole day, so it wasnt a big deal having to come back to the one spot to swap them out.

    Hello Steph, Thank you for your great review and kind words. We really appreciate you taking the time for this. We also welcome the 'improvement points'. We do our utmost best to keep the rinse tanks clean and clear. It's possible that during your stay groups rinsed their gear after hours and made the tanks a bit muddy. I apologize for that.....it's one of those things that are beyond our control. I'll make sure we pay extra attention to the tanks at the end of the day. The multiple locations is a conscious business decision. I feel strongly that it's not possible to deliver the high level of service that we do spread over multiple locations. We chose to do it right in one location instead of 'almost right' in multiple locations. I'm glad you experienced that our centrally located shop in combination with the fact that you can take multiple tanks at a time and the 24/7 accessible tank exchange and gear storage room makes it easy. We look forward to welcoming you again in the future! Warm regards, Bas Noij
