What great service! It started with the initial emails. Bas answered most of my questioning emails within a few minutes of hitting send. Bas also offered to help us find a place to stay in Bonaire when we had need for an extra night.
Once we arrived in Bonaire, the welcome at the shop was excellent and getting us set up with our instructor/guide Menno was smooth. The equipment (BCDs and regs) was almost new and was well looked after. We were able to pick up tanks any time (even on New Years day).
A couple of us took the Advanced Open Water course. We have done many dive trips, with guided and on our own diving. Menno was by far the best instructor we have had. He was enthusiastic, and explained things extremely well. It was clear that he is still excited about his job and enjoys spending time with his guests. On the way to dive sites he stopped to show us historical sites on the island. He also knew the best places to stop for lunch. The night UV dive was another highlight.
Once we finished the course, Bas recommended the best dive sites on the island and even recommended where to go for Saturday BBQ chicken!
This was a great experience - we highly recommend VIP Diving!
