Went with two friends for a day of diving after arriving on a cruise ship. Very professional dive shop. My friends had worked with this shop before and highly recommended it. What a beautiful dive area.

My husband and I travel all over the globe and enjoy diving wherever we go. However, VIP stands out as a top notch shop.
Everything is super clean, welcoming and everyone is incredibly friendly.

We did our Search and Recovery speciality with them and while it wasn’t an easy course, the course was great. We went to four dive sites we hadn’t been to before. Our instructor Martijin was extremely knowledgeable about the island, scuba and was really patient with us. It was far worth the cost of the 2 day course.

Highly recommend if you are looking for a dive shop with great service in Bonaire.

My husband and I hadn't been diving in years. Although he is a fish out of water, I was anxious to dive again after such a long time. Our tour guide took the time to take us into the pool at the dive center, go through some basic maneuvers and made us feel comfortable before getting into the ocean. We dove with another couple and they purchased a two tank dive, whereas we only purchased a one tank dive. Unfortunately for us, we didn't get to see all the wildlife they saw on their second dive. The first dive sight was pretty basic, with plenty of fish and corals but we were a little underwhelmed with what we saw... which is the nature of the beast when you are dealing with wildlife. Our guide was very attentive to me and made sure I was always comfortable in the water and assisted with buoyancy as necessary.
We would definitely recommend this company to dive beautiful Bonaire.

Hi Shedrown.

Thank you for taking the time to let us know about your great experience. I'm very happy to hear that our service was top notch, sorry to hear though that the wildlife disappointed you on the day. As you heard from the other people in your group who did a second dive, that is really unlucky and I'm sure if you keep diving on Bonaire....nature will reward you :-)

We hope to see you back here with us on a future trip!

Sunny regards,

Bas Noij.

How complete can a Divecenter be. VIP is the cleanest and most efficient dive center from Bonaire. Located at the south part from Kralendijk they are easy to reach. The Drive Thru makes it easy to pick up new bottles. The Divecenter offers a wide collection from equipment. Nice and proffesional staff. See you next time.
