My fiance and I rented our tanks and weight from Dive Friends and they were great. They have several pick up drop off/ pick up locations on the island. So if you enjoy multiple dives a day chances are there is a shop near by your dive site to change out tanks. However, they do close up at 5 so... More

Took a trip to Bonaire in early August for what I hear is the best diving around! Well I wasn't let down!! Dive Friends has by far the best dive shops on the island. Dive Inn particularly was the best of them all. The shop gave me a great price and made my diving experience hands down simple, fun, and... More

I came down alone and they set me up diving on a boat that was a lot of fun. They were patient with me although I sucked up too much bottom time but Jeffrey explained to me what I did wrong and on the next day (Saturday the 13th), I did a Hamlet Oasis shore dive with Gerald or Gerard... More

-Dive Inn Location- Good setup: front porch is nice sitting area with counter & high pub chairs, once you step inside you'll find small retail & check-in counter. The back of the center is gear setup tables/rinse tank/shower/restroom; further down is lockers and gear storage, and at the end is fill station (air/nitrox.) For boat dives, small pier is across...

Appreciate the Sand Dollar location and dive package. We are veteran divers. Fifth trip to Bonaire. We booked three dive boat trips...good for new divers. We will skip the boat dives next time. Yes, we recommend this dive shop.

So happy we got to stop by the new location near Buddy Dive on our latest visit to Bonaire. We've known Lourdes for 10 years and she is always so happy, friendly and helpful. This trip my dad lost a camera filter/lens while diving at the Hilma hooker. Two days later we found it at the Dive Friends shop. Thank... More

Great staff, fast friendly service in the shop and on the dive boats. Once checked in all you need to do is go diving, exchange tanks and go diving AGAIN! And the extra bonus of having many locations to use so you are not constantly driving back and forth.

Air was always clean (No CO), locations convenient and staff very friendly. I don't have one negative thing to say about any of the multiple captains or guides we had over the week we were there. With all of their locations they always had a place we could grab our tanks.
