If you search for a professional but als easy going dive place, this is it. We were quite a complicated family, with one dive master, one diver without a license and one young novel diver. They just made it work for us all. We have two nice dives with the three of us and I could easily rent the equipment to do some dives with other experienced divers. There is one bill and you just pay the whole amount when you leave. They add their prices up in your favor and it’s clear that it’s more important to them that you have good time then that they want a maximum amount of your money. This is rally chill diving. Highly recommended.

We rented gear and a truck from this shop during a dive vacation in Bonaire. I want to mention something they could improve upon but frankly, can’t think of anything. Everything they said they would do was done. The gear worked very well. Our first truck had some issues including a tire that I flattened by hitting a curb at Eden’s Beach impossibly tight driveway :( We called their help number and Alan arrived to save our night. The tailgate also stopped working so they swapped out our original truck for a different one that worked flawlessly. I highly recommend renting from them. We were diving for more than 7 days so we also got unlimited nitrox tanks which, thanks to our knowledge of the secret locker codes, allowed us to change tanks anytime. Eric efficiently picked us up at the airport and checked us in. He also argued that we should buy my wife a computer since the rental cost would be at nearly half the cost of a new one. My weak resistance to this suggestion crumbled and now she has a sweet new Cressi Neon computer. Charlotte set this up for her and provided an infinite number of good shore diving tips. Plus she told us where to find a baitball at Vista Blue that was awesome. Alex and Emma (owners I believe) were around setting up whatever was needed. Bach took us on two great boat dives where we saw a school of squid and even a drumfish. Alex drove by us while Alan was changing the tire just to be sure we were OK. Nico checked us out and drove us to the airport. He also had good site advice. We will rent from this outstanding shop again and I highly recommend you do too.

My girlfriend and I visited this dive school for the second time now. This was yet another very pleasant experience how relaxed diving should be.

Equipment readily available for rentals, minor problems with equipment are immediately solved and compensated. Staff is very friendly and available for questions and advice on dive sites. Enough availibility of excursions like boat dives and night dives.

Tip: go for a Night Dive with Linda. Next level, superb experience.

Thanks to all staff and special thanks to Bart!

Made a reservation for a boat dive and showed up at 830 as per their request and sat there for 20 minutes while we were ignored. We asked about checking in and were told to go sit down while the staff was goofing off. Bad vibes, Terrible service and very unprofessional. With so many great dive shops on Bonaire it was very disappointing. Definitely would not recommend

Before travelling I contacted the diveshop via email to find out options for diving, renting gear etc. Kim was very helpful, answering all my queries and we prebooked the orientation dive (required and includes the marine tax) for the day after we arrived.
We completed our orientation with Nico and Colt at The Beach which is opposite the shop at Grand Windsock, which was next door to Isla where we were staying. Saw an amazing amount of aquatic life and chatted to them about our aims for the trip. Colt recommended Hilma Hooker for one of our dives as we had recently attained our Advanced Open Water and it didn't disappoint.
The shop is well equipped and welcoming with a friendly bunch, Emma was great help each day when we picked up our gear and tanks. We dropped everything off, sanitised each day and stored there.
We went for 6 days gear hire and a 10 tank card for both myself and my son Kiran which was excellent value for money.
Overall a brilliant, helpful team and great diveshop, we will definitely return to Bonaire and link up with them again!

I took the reef renewal course at Wannadive in Bonaire. Very special experience and excellent course given by Linda who is extremely motivated to give you a unique experience. It provides a lot of practical skin old to become involved in reef restoration. They have their own nursery and outplanting site and active for 10 years. Gives hope for our endangered oceans and reefs. Well done and I would dear to say a must for all divers.

I did a refresh dive at Eden Resort, Alex the divemaster was great! After the refresh dive I did 2 boat dives at Klein Bonaire and one coast dive at Cliff. The boat dive was with Luke and the coast dive with Alex again. I had a great time with Wannadive! everything was good organized and the material was great.
When I come back we meet again!! groetjes aan Alex 010!

Down to earth staff with awesome vibes!
We rented a truck, gear, and unlimited air for a week. 11/29-12/6/23. Truck was a Renault duster. (Like a Subaru with a truck bed) Worked well for 4 people. Each day the staff was very friendly and helpful! They met me at the airport with the truck and took us to the dive shop for gear and tanks! Everything was so simple and low stress. Dropped the truck at the airport when I left! Great way to go if your getting an airbnb!

Both locations were convenient to rinse our gear daily one to the south of Kralendych and one just north by Eden beach resort. Remember to rinse your gear to stop the spread of the coral disease. Follow green to red chart check the website daily.

They had everything you could need at their shops. Dry bags/cases, dive computers, extra o-rings, rinse shower!

Thanks wanna dive for the friendly atmosphere of your dive shop!

Thanks to instructor Dennis for making our day by guiding is during our first dive ever. He showed us around the reefs in an entertaining, funny but also educative way. It was an amazing experience. We think Dennis deserves a raise after today! :-)

I highly recommend these guys. It sounds cliché but they really do offer something for everyone. Everything from an "intro to scuba" course all the way down to unlimited nitrox, for the diver who does not want to dry off.
I just finished a week off boat diving with them. Had my best dive vacation yet!
They're laid back, friendly, and extremely professional.
Again, highly recommend them.
