I've been to different dive operators all over the caribbean and none of them even come close to the experience VIP Diving offers. I really just can't say enough about the staff and the philosophy. I went on 7 dives with VIP and each one was flat out amazing. The night dive was particularly magical. Each dive was lead by... More

As a first diving experience my daughters (11 and 18) had nothing to compare this to, but maybe that's the point. We were greeted warmly and made to feel at home right from the start. Eric our instructor was very friendly, helpful and obviously professional, but best of all he was able to inspire confidence and gave us a great... More

If you had years of diving experience and wanted to lay out your dream dive shop/training center/guided dive operation, you would build VIP DIving. I have logged well over 300 dives and I have never seen as good and well run a facility as VIP DIving. Friendly staff, professional service and a commitment to safety & conservation. If you can,...

We rented tanks and weights at VIP Diving after the good experience I had in February. It was a pleasure to see the team again. For our, independent, group the service was excellent. To start of, every morning (and actually any time of day when we returned) perfect coffee was offered. The tanks were always ready and not one tank... More

VIP is definitely one of the top quality dive shops on the island. The staff are extremely friendly, always offering us a coffee, and very helpful and knowledgable about their gear. Definitely was a great experience.

From the moment you first contact VIP you can tell they are a step above other dive shops. It doesn't matter whether you are a seasoned diver or new to diving, they create an experience that you won't forget. They take the time to find out what your goals and objectives are and then work closely with you to put... More

VIP Diving was recommended to us by our regular dive shop on Bonaire as they were fully booked and had no capacity for a Lionfish Hunting Course. During the course and dives we made with VIP we became impressed with the professional organization and high level of service. They truly went the extra mile to make sure we had a... More

Arriving from a cruise ship, I found many of the local operators did not want to work with us. wow how fortunate for us! VIP was absolutely the best of our week of island diving. Illiona, ( sorry for the probably misspelling) was awesome from the second we met her at the pier. We dove two very different dives, seeing... More
