I completed my wreck diving certification today with Dive Friends, and could not be happier with it. The PADI wreck diving book could be improved by being a bit more specific with the skills that matter (such as line tying) and it was rather ambiguous as to what should be expected (which makes sense, because wrecks can vary significantly). Because of this, I get the sense that the enjoyment and the usefulness of this course is highly dependent on the instructor. In this case, it was Pieter de Groot, whom I would recommend to anyone. Pieter made sure that I understood the history of the wreck, and did a nice survey of it before even entering the water. Each dive was a successive step toward making wreck diving a safe endeavor, and left me with a newly acquired skill. At the end of this, I feel like I understand that basics of doing a safe and planned wreck dive. Though I recognize that I have significant practice and learning ahead, I went from having no practical knowledge, to feeling like a beginner. I would highly recommend.

One of the friendliest place I have ever been to. They always helped us a lot, even during hard corona-times they were always a good help. Thanks a lot to Dive Friends Hamlet and especially Monique for hospitality 🙂 Really looking forward to be back! 🙂

Rented the equipement via the shop at Delfins Beach Resort. First dive was guided as it was a combination of the check up and guided shore dive to get some explanation of shore diving. Great service and good quality of the rentals. Did 1 boat dive, which was very nice to do. While divig in a small group are 'being watched' but also free to do your own diving as long as you can communicate and see eachother under water.

3 family members did a open water course. Great teaching Janine. We joined a boat tour organised by five friends to klein Bonaire. Great boot, well arranged, friendly but always an eye on safety. The team at Delfins (Dive in) was always ready to assist and advice. Thanks Jack and Daniel! See you soon again. Regards Hans and Davien
