“Quality Shop with Solid Service”
Reviewed March 5, 2014

We have been diving through dive friends twice now and find them to be reputable and reliable, friendly and helpful. That nitrox is no additional charge is a real win. We don't go to Bonaire to spend time on boats, but we did a couple days on the boat this trip ad did enjoy it. It's the only way to visit the sites on Klein Bonaire, and that is worth it. Otherwise, it's all about the shore diving! That they have locations north and south made changing out tanks easier, we managed 23 dives in 6 days. Hard to do that anywhere else.

“Debris Free Bonaire--Dive Friends Bonaire”
Reviewed February 26, 2014

We dove with Dive Friends Bonaire in February 2014. The staff is friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. We were helped by Sues, Ilsa, Feilika, Sebastion and Robert and they were all wonderful help. Dive Friends has at least 5 locations so it is very convenient to pick up a tank or return one. The rinse tanks are kept clean and they even add a fresh smelling disinfectant. All the above are good reasons to dive with Dive Friends. My favorite reason to dive with them is for their environmental care of Bonaire. Dive Friends sponsors monthly Debris Free Bonaire clean up dives to keep the reef clean and to protect the environment. They also recycle in all their locations and sponsor trash pick up. All are good reasons to dive with Dive Friends.

“Always the best”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

We have used Dive friends for our last four trips to Bonaire and we wouldn't even consider using another dive shop. We have always found them to be highly professional and very accommodating. If you want small family style service and don't want big box service go to Dive friends. Thanks to Devin,Robert,Bas, Lars,Eunan,Suus,Ilsa,Chris,Martin,Tim,Jessie,Rich,Gordon,Alex,Fialua and Micheal

“Friendly Service!”
Reviewed February 25, 2014

We spent a week in Bonaire and took advantage of Dive Friends multiple locations for the first time and now we really understand how nice it is to be able to drop off or trade tanks anywhere we wanted. We based out of Hamlet Oasis for the second year in a row and with the service received through all locations (except Sand Dollar, which we did not use), we will certainly be back. Our dive shop guy at Hamlet remembered that one of our crew had a birthday and before we put the truck in park, he was singing happy birthday! That is service! We make an annual trip to Bonaire and this year will make it twice. We will certainly be using Dive Friends!
