This was our 14th time at BDA. Other reviews have called it a laid back operation. That is exactly why we like it. One of the few dive operations that has a big gear room instead of small lockers where in 3 days of diving the smell becomes unbearable. The gear room has 24 hour access and enough open air... More

I am an experienced dive Pro who has taken my family of novice divers to Bonaire a number of times, this was our fourth outing with BD&A. The operation offers an excellent location and infrastructure (24/7 tank access, securing gear, solid dock access to Bari reef one of the best sites on the island) but it is either too laid... More

This was our second time diving with BDA and it is consistently great. Laid back but attentive service. Dive guides were thoughtful and catered to diverse needs of those who were diving. Great Lionfish course. Killed a few and then had them prepared / ate them at the local restaurant.

This was our third trip to Bonaire and our second time using BDA. We made a mistake our second time and used a different dive shop - will not make that mistake again. It is easy to register and hassle-free. The dive staff is extremely accommodating within reason. The dock offers ridiculously easy access to the most diverse reef in... More

Our third visit and the place is as good as ever. Andre and Kathrine run a fine operation. Diving from the dock is huge. Boat trips were well run. Tip these guys well, they deserve it.

My husband and I traveled with our family to Bonaire. We are avid divers and have dove all over the world, but somehow managed to avoid Bonaire. This is by far our favorite place to dive and Bonaire Dive and Adventure was wonderful! Excellent access to tanks throughout the day and night. Great customer service and pricing. They were all...

We have always been happy with BDA. Very convenient in all aspects. Having the beautiful dock and wooden steps down into the water, and the huge equipment storage room is perfect.

I got personal service here like we like to give at Charleston Scuba! As an instructor for Charleston Scuba, I lead dive trips all over the world. We research resorts before going there. This is the our first time using BD&A on recommendation by our travel agent, Caribbean Dive Vacations. And, I was not disappointed. Their dive masters assisted my... More

Pros: Exclusive pier and giant stride entrance to Bari Reef. Cons: Staff overall is not very engaging or relational. The day 1 dive orientation took over 1.5 hours. That is extremely excessive and unnecessary. Lots of good info about the island and such, but just way too long and tedious. Took up too much of our day. Dive shop closes... More

We returned to Bonaire in March 2016 several years after our first trip in 2011. We decided to stay at Den Laman condos, and reluctantly decided to try Bonaire Dive and Adventure again. The first time we were turned off by the owner's negative attitude and rigid rules and we didn't really want to give him our money again. However,... More
