About BAS Diving
With 20 years of experience of diving on the East Coast from shore. Bas Tol is the guide to use if you want to explore diving on the East Coast. With the East Coast being the more undived side from Bonaire the reefs and fishlife you find over there is not comparable with the West Coast. If you done it once you want to do it again!

Bas was a very knowledgeable guide to the wildside of the island. Never felt I was not going to be able to do the dive as Bas made it very comfortable.

Dove Cai with Bas and two other divers. I have been diving for over 20 years and easily one of my favorite spots now. And hands-down one of the best divemasters I've gone with. He said to come with a full tank and to prepare...More

Bas is super chill, very humble and an incredible diver. If you want adventurous diving, you are going to get it. Bas only does private small groups, and he will make adjustments for skill level, but this is not for inexperienced divers. Bas took us...More

Email him - we didn't need either but I'm sure he can arrange (depending on the size of your group)... if you need transport and kit though then I'd just ask if the East of Bonaire is for you... it is most certainly not easy... More
