Thank you Frank for giving us a great day diving. We especially liked the close encounter with the turtles. We will absolutely recommend VIP diving, having your own butler. THANKS!

My boyfriend and I went Ina two tank dive with VIP diving this past week. It was unbelievable! We had the pleasure of diving with Jonathan who did a great job. His outgoing, funny personality made us feel welcome. We will definitely be back. We saw the most beautiful fish and vibrant coral. I am still in awe.

I had the privilege of diving with VIP Diving during late August 2016 and I can say with certainty that they’re setting a new benchmark in service and quality. Getting to them wasn’t a casual decision. Here’s how I arrived to them: *Initial Contact* I contacted four diving operations once I secured lodging on the Island. VIP diving was the... More

We were a group of 4 and we booked their service. Ulimited NITROX consistent at 32 and tank fills in the range of 3200-3400. Delivered daily to your condo. They picked up the empties and we were never short of tanks. Our group dove 108 dives in 6 days. I have never seen such service in the Carribbean. Trusting and... More

We had 1 afternoon/evening to dive while our cruise ship was in port in Bonaire. I booked 2 day tank dives and 1 tank night dive. Our Dive Master, Jurgen, met us at the pier and escorted us to the dive shop. Bas, the owner, helped us with an issue with our GoPro, providing us his housing to use when... More

I was travelling solo so, although I am an experienced diver, I booked guided dives with VIP Diving and rented most of the equipment. The service was friendly and relaxed, we had good diving and good laugh with Jonathan and other team in the shop. The diving groups were small, i.e. 1-4 persons per the guide as promised. The equipment... More

After coming to Bonaire for many years and boat diving every trip, we decided that we needed something different. After all, Bonaire is known for its shore diving. So this trip we booked our dives with VIP. From the very beginning they were accommodating, professional and friendly. Their dive shop is immaculate and the staff is wonderfully friendly and upbeat.... More

I had one week of binge diving with them and everything was great. I did courses (AOW, nitrox, navigator specialty and night specialty) and three double morning fun dives for a total of 14 dives in six days (yeah, I was busy). All the instructors were great and were cool people. They obviously have extensive dive knowledge and experience, and... More

VIP Diving is a great Dive shop/center, higher quality than what we have seen elsewhere on Bonaire. Friendly and expert service. Josh gave us our Lionfish Hunting Padi course and we had a great time and ready to hunt. Not a lot of Lionfish on Bonaire and let's keep it that way!

Hi Bustl, Isn't it great the effect of the Lion Fish hunting here on Bonaire!? This is so important to keep our beautiful reefs as they are. And this is why we are extremely happy with every Lion Fish hunting course we can teach. Thank you for helping out :-) And of course thank your for this big compliment: higher... More
