Had a great afternoon dive with VIP Diving. The person in charge of responding to emails was always quick and addressed my questions. I did an afternoon dive from a cruise ship and my dive master, Frank, picked me up from the terminal. On our way to the dive site, Frank functioned a tour guide pointing out sites of interest and giving some history to the island. When we got to the dive site, he gave an informative pre-dive briefing and set a steady leisurely pace during the dive; really gave us time to enjoy the corals. I've been diving since 2004, from South Africa, to the South Pacific, California and the Caribbean. The reef we dove was one on the healthiest I've seen in a long time.

Thank you Frank and VIP for a great afternoon.

We only had a short time window to get off the NCL cruise and go out to the Salt Pier. Amazing dive guide provided to us with VIP diving. I would undoubtedly use this dive shop again when we return to Bonaire!!

Hello Robert S,

A short time window is better than no window at all! We are glad that you got to experience diving on Bonaire with us. The Salt Pier is fantastic and one of the top dive sites on Bonaire.

We hope your return is sooner than later! Sunny regards from Sanne & the VIP Team.

Bonaire diving is unbelievable. Walking from shore, at any number of spots around the island, is easy and quick. Hop out, gear up, and about 2 minutes later it's like you've dropped right into the middle of an aquarium. Every way you look, you see hundreds of fish.
The coral is abundant and stretches as far as you can see, which is incredibly far in the clear waters off of Bonaire.
VIP diving was superior to any other dive shop I've ever worked with. It was full service all the way, tailored to what we wanted, and the group was small. For my first dive of the day, it was just two divers and the dive master, the second it was just me and the dive master.
We came in on a cruise ship and were met at the pier, driven to the dive shop (about 3 minutes away), geared up, and away we went.
I highly recommend VIP diving, and I highly recommend Bonaire. I will be back, and I will call VIP again with no hesitation. Thanks!

Super Dive Center!!! Excellent service, friendly staff, super instructors and a very nice place. We wanted to see turtles and they spontaneously changed the itinerary to get us to the best spot to do so. Super cool! They know how to satisfy their guests.

This was our third year diving with VIP Diving and it was great again. We had three different dive masters and each one was helpful, informative and personable. Would highly recommend them.
