Don't disagree with anything the instructors say or the owners wife (Kim) or they will cancel your dive at the last minute. I found everyone here to be very arrogant (except Michael). I had a disagreement with the instructor as she was wrong about some of the island rules, she really didn't like this and proceeded to be even more arrogant to show me she was correct (proven wrong on the Stinapa website). We were then required to do a check out dive, both of us advanced divers. On the check out dive she brought us back with a half tank at the safety stop obviously a very short dive. She was very poor at identifying sea life during the dive and only pointing out the most obvious animals. After this I requested 4 nitrox tanks. I returned 2 tanks the next day, waited 5 minutes, no one around, and grabbed the other 2 tanks I requested and left. Upon returning Kim accused us of taking tanks with out asking and told us we couldn't have anymore that night. I said OK and turned to leave, she continued with trying to explain why she wouldn't let us have tanks for a night dive so i turned around and listened. She finished and I left. The next day Michael approached me before the night dive we scheduled with them and claimed I disrespected his staff(wife) by not agreeing with them even when they were wrong. I explained the situation and he said they didn't like my attitude and wanted the rental gear back and not to do the night dive (leaving in 5 minutes). I am sure they do a great job with uninformed people who don't know any better, but for any advanced or experienced divers I'd go elsewhere, or just nod your head and smile to whatever they say. The guy staying next to us had a similar experience and said Dive Buddies is better for experienced divers.

Absolutely loved this dive shop! It was close to our resort and everyone there is extremely friendly and helpful. We chose this dive shop because it was recommended on the Padi website for diving in Bonaire and I am so thankful we did! After an easy refresher course we got to do 4 dives the last one being a night dive to see the ostracod bioluminescence. We thoroughly enjoyed every dive and had a wonderful experience with each dive instructor!

The owners hosts of the wonderful property took us in with no notice after our reservation at a different property was mixed up. A wonderful little condo/hotel with a full service dive shop. We stayed in a spotlessly clean 2 bedroom kitchenette. Everything we needes to save our holiday was provided. The property has outdoor areas, a lovely clean pool, a pretty garden, bbq facilties. And off street parking. Indoors the clean apt. Has a large shower with rainhead shower head all the hot wayer and water pressure you could want a very comfortable bead a/c in the bedroom and a fully stocked kitchen. The location is convenient to the southern dive sites and is easy walking distance to bachlors beach Thankyou so much for saving our holiday

Excellent, encouraging and supporting instruction for my wife's Open Water course. Fine rental equipment and good advice for the rest of office. Of course, Bonaire is the top in free shore diving but the guided dives from Beyond the Corals do add an extra dimension. Take an ostracod night dive if you can!
