I am typing this with tears of joy in my eyes so forgive me in advance for typos. After you left yesterday Maria, I sat on the floor in the bathroom and just cried. I would’ve never thought I would’ve done what I did with you. You was truly a blessing to me. Your spirit was so calming for me, especially giving my anxiety of the water. You were able to get me in the water and experience what breathing under water was like for the first time (Mermaid Demi). I have been bit by the scuba bug. I will forever be grateful to you for such an amazing experience. I have some goals to reach and I’m determined to reach them. Thanks for everything from the bottom of my heart. And now you will never be able to get rid of me as a student and hopefully one day a dive buddy. I will highly recommend you to anyone I know coming to Bonaire to use you for private lessons. Much love

My husband and I decided to get our open water certification- bucket list for sure! After reading about the gorgeous reefs of Bonaire and the rave reviews about Dive Diva, we booked with her. We could not be more pleased, more proud, nor more grateful about our choices! It began with her very thorough and helpful email communication as we organized hotels and course work. It ended with two confident certified divers! Maria is patient, kind, encouraging, knowledgeable, thorough in her instruction, and just plain fun to be around! She serves your water in colorful wine glasses! What’s not to love about that!! We loved being able to explore different areas of the reef with her throughout the course and can’t wait to go back to see more! Truly every detail from snacks, to lunches, to equipment, to logistics for dive locations was well-planned. I was super nervous to start the dive portion. Maria was very calming and reassuring, a true testimony to her passion for teaching diving! If you are contemplating getting a certification, looking for a guided dive, or just want to see what diving is all about, I whole heartedly recommend going with Dive Diva! She is truly a gem! Maria- thank you for opening up the underwater world to us! We can’t wait to explore it more!

Our first day on Bonaire we felt more comfortable having a guide on our first dive since it had been 1 year since previously diving.  We asked at our rental shop and they were all booked.  Maria, from Dive Diva, was recommended so we emailed her. She responded quickly and made herself available for us the next day. Maria is a joy to be around, knowledgeable, and very helpful.  She chose a location that would be comfortable for us to start at, found interesting sea life for us to see, and gave us the confidence we needed to dive the remainder of our trip solo. In addition to her scuba knowledge, she was very helpful in suggesting points of interests and best places to see flamingo's.  I was able to see quite a few at Goto lake, which was her suggestion.  Thanks Maria! The fun plastic wine glasses with ice cold water was a unexpected treat!  We recommend if you want a guide here on Bonaire, don't hesitate to reach out to Maria...the Dive Diva.

Maria was the perfect guide--caring, confident, fun, and knowledgeable. I had not been diving for 17 years and she took me through the refresher course with skill. We then went on a beautiful dive together and she pointed out marine life that I may not have otherwise noticed. I would choose her in a heartbeat again.

Thank you so much Anita, it was my pleasure re-introducing you to the ocean! You did really great and I do hope your next dive will be soon. I vividly remember the giant Queen Conch we saw, quite the beauty, wasn't it? Take care and dive again!
