I just spent a week on Bonaire and did three days of morning 2 tank boat dives and a night dive with Ebby. We tried to do more but people know a good thing and he was already booked. You need to schedule early. He is friendly and knows the reef like no one else. Always searching during our dives,twice he spotted an octopus, found seahorses, and spotted eagle rays.
On the days we were not on the boat Ebby’s services didn’t end. We arrived at our rental house and he had already left about 20 tanks of air and Nitrox along with weights for us to use shore diving. When we ran low we gave him a call and the empties were replaced with full tanks while we slept. We never could figure out when he was doing it.
On top of the exceptional guide skills and amazing service his boat is comfortable for six people, fast and quiet. Ebby is a local guide. He knows the island and its people and I feel confident in recommending him as your dive guide. If you don’t dive or have someone in your group who wants to learn he is an excellent instructor as well.
I have been diving with Ebby in the past and will definitely be diving with him again.

Our group of 6 recently chose “Dive with Ebby” for our trip to Bonaire and I can’t possibly sing his praises enough! Whether we were boat diving or shore diving, Ebby made sure we were well taken care of. He delivered fresh tanks directly to our rental home so we wouldn’t have to worry about chores on our vacation. He was open to any dive site we requested and offered suggestions when asked. Ebby is an experienced local guide and knows the waters very well. As a result, he is always on the lookout for interesting critters to point out and is happy to help find whatever interests you! Our night dive was amazing as well and he even thought to bring us hot chocolate to warm up after a long day of diving. If you are considering diving in Bonaire, I highly recommend Ebby! Book him early as word is getting around that he provides such attentive care with ease and a smile!

Ebby was amazing! We were a group of 6 divers on the island for one week. He dropped off tanks at our VRBO and refreshed our stash the whole week so we could shore dive at our convenience without having to stop at a shop to switch out. We went out on boat dives with him, letting us choose our sites and helping us make the most of our time there. We did both day and night dives; getting to see a plethora of wild life. From multiple octopus, rays, turtles,seahorses, eels to rock fish; Ebby delivered. All with the sweet Bonarian charm you could only get from a local. As someone who has used other dive shops on the island previously, Ebby will have my business hands down on my return trips.

About 3 weeks before our trip to Bonaire I reached out to Dive with Ebby to try and schedule 2 days of boat dives. He was quick to respond and able to accommodate us on the 2nd week of our stay in late April. The first day we dove on two north sites (not accessible by shore) and the 2nd day did two tanks on Klein Bonaire. Ebby was an excellent guide, his boat is comfortable and fast. We provided our own tanks, but I believe he can provide you tanks if necessary. We were very comfortable diving with Ebby, and I believe he quickly judges your experience level and adjusts his approach to guiding appropriately. He only takes 6 people max on his boat, and our two days it was just the two of us. Ebby said most times its not more than 4 divers. Juice and water were provided between dives. We felt this was a good value for the money and plan to Dive with Ebby again on our next trip to Bonaire!

I just finished another amazing dive adventure with the “legendary” Ebby. The diving was pure FUN. Ebby’s respect for the ocean, the sea creatures that call it home, and his customers make his dive operation unique. He is never in a hurry, makes certain his divers are comfortable and informed, strives to find the unusual critter, and is delighted when one is pointed out to him.
We were fortunate with the weather and were able to dive the east coast and sites located far north into the park. On one dive we stopped counting green morays after number ten not to overlook the lobsters, loggerheads, green mantis shrimp, and frog fish.
If you want a customized dive experience that focuses on you and your expectations.... Dive With Ebby is the right choice for you!

Ebby has a great, private boat. He is a master at showing us all the amazing ocean creatures and landscapes. We have been diving with Ebby for years. Before we come, we make sure he makes places for us in his schedule. We are experienced older (73 and 74) divers but we have watched him work brilliantly with all experience levels. He does night dives and will do private dives if you have a special interest.

Made 4 boat dives with Ebby in Feb 2023 - Joanne's Sunchi, Carl's Hill and Sampler on Klein Bonaire and Carl's Hill on big island - all great experiences with tons of marine life. Ebby runs a fantastic operation from the quality of his boat, size of his dive groups (small) to his knowledge of where to go when. About the nicest guy you'll meet on Bonaire - thank you Ebby for two great days of diving!

In July, 2021, I had the pleasure of diving with Ebby during my trip to Bonaire with my husband. Both my husband and I are experienced scuba divers and I am also a professional underwater photographer. Both of us were really impressed with Ebby's knowledge and professional experience. In the past seventeen years of diving in various places around the world, I have had the opportunity to go out on boats and dive with many different people and Ebby stands out as one of the very top persons ever!

During our visit, there were specific sites and subjects I desired to photograph. Ebby not only knew where to take us, but also exactly where to find the animals and corals I wanted to see. Because I had not been to Bonaire before and only had one week for my stay, I didn't have time to "try" everything out and needed to focus on specific goals. Without Ebby, I wouldn't have been able to see all the things I did -- and more. He literally knew how and where to find everything!

Ebby is also a really outgoing and charismatic person. It was so enjoyable to be out on his boat, which is a lovely boat as well, and share his company.

When I return to Bonaire, I will definitely go out with Ebby again!

Some of my favorite moments on earth were diving with Ebby Jules. He knew where to find everything I wanted to see, including seahorses, frogfish (one was getting ready to release her egg raft and accompanied by her mate), octopuses, turtles and rays. He taught me about their natural history and how to look for them. I dove with Ebby three of my six diving days and wish it was more. The dives were relaxed and unhurried (each dive was 60 to 80 minutes) and spending time with him out of the water was a joy. Fun Fact: Ebby has a great underwater laugh.

One more rave review for Ebby. We dove with him three times in December 2021. All three trips were great. He introduced us to Bruce's Rappel, Country Garden, Carel's Vision and Candyland. All are stunning sites and rarely visited by other dive boats. We also did two dives on the always lovely Klein Bonaire. Ebby was very warm, professional and flexible for us. We like to dive shallow and putter about looking under rocks, and he found us wonderful areas to do that. He is about to get a bigger boat too, but told us he plans to stick to a maximum of 6 divers per trip. We are looking forward to adventuring with him again next year. Highly recommended!
