With 7 locations around the island, you won't have to travel far to pick up or drop off tanks, get advice about good shore dive sites, sign up for dive training, shop for cool new gear or just relax with a cold drink and meet some new dive buddies.

We have spent another tree weeks of diving here and have rented tanks and weights from Dive Friends at Yellow Sub. It is a great advantage over many other dive centres that they have tank filling stations - with coffee and rinse tanks from the South (Port Bonaire) to North (Hamlet) of the island. But the true advantage is the staff. They are brilliant, very helpful, interested in diving and the divers and willing to share information about where to dive to see unusual creatures. This time we would like to mention in particular Fialka, Robert x 2, Eunan, Gordon, Richard, Tim, Ilsa, and Esther.

Hemos estado 3 semanas en Bonaire de las cuales 2 fueron de buceo. Contactamos con Dive Friends para que nos suministrara barra libre de botellas durante ese período, además alquilamos algo de material. Todo fue perfecto, y cada vez que necesitamos resolver cualquier problema siempre estaban dispuestos a ayudar y a aconsejar. Muchas gracias especialmente a Suuz y a Liz que fueron con las que más tratamos.

Gracias

We was during three weeks in Bonaire of which 2 were diving. We contacted with Dive Friends to supply us unlimited bottle of air during that period, and rented some stuff. Everything was perfect, and every time we need to solve any problems they were always willing to help and advise us. Thank you very much to Suuz and Liz. They were part of the staff that we saw most frequently.

Thank you

We were leary to use a shop that was new to us but Dive Friends was recommended, so we tried them out. Very pleased with the ease of using their multiple facilities, friendly and knowledgable staff and supportive assistance to our varied experience levels.

Shout out to Liz at the Sand Dollar location, for her humor and tips on places to dive and best spots for food - we left feeling we had a new friend. Also, thanks to Susie, who helped us with a gear problem. And, at Hamlet Oasis, to Patrick for his sage advice and inspiring pep talk.

We'll certainly be back!

We sail from Sint-Maarten to Bonaire for the hurricane season , we were looking to get tanks fills and went many dive shops and finaly we stop to there shop and it was a very nice welcome , clean well in order , the retail part is little but enough for divers with there own stuff.
We ask for tanks fill and it was'nt a problem they had many options and that's it we were on our way to dive.
They also help us out by giving us the positions of all the creatures that we wanted to see , sea horse , frog fish , etc etc ... and all that without a fuss.
They have internet on site and you can use it as you want, for us on there water front we use it with a nice cold Polar beer of course.
They have a dingy dock and you can also dive from shore.
We put Sailing Diver just in front of there porch that make it easy to get the tanks.
Over all they make every things easy and they do every things to accomodate you.
