“We love Wannadive!!!”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

We have made a dozen visits to Bonaire and have been working with Wannadive every since they opened about a dozen years ago. We are almost exclusively shore divers and we love the easy, laid-back environment at Wannadive. We have four children (two of whom were certified by Wannadive) and the folks at Wannadive have always been helpful, warm and fair. They respect our diving independence and never push for unnecessary activities or services. What a great operation. We will always be their loyal customers and friends.

“Wannadive? YES! Do we love these guys? YES!”
Reviewed November 20, 2012

We left Bonaire a few days ago, after a great week long vacation. We miss the sun, the warm weather (being back in Amsterdam now). We miss the amazing diving, the beautiful reefs and marine life. But more than anything, we miss the crew at Wannadive! We're so happy that we decided to do our Advance OW certification with them.
Linda, thank you...the best instructor ever! We laughed and had such a good time...but more importantly, we couldn't have asked for anyone better to help us with our diving skills...our improvement was clear to see! Patrik, we're so happy that we came to Bonaire while you are doing your Divemaster training, you added to the fun and learning immensely! Boy, Alex, Carlos, Tim, Sebastian, Tama, to name a few. You were all very professional and helpful, and fun! We miss Wannadive and Bonaire and you all, and we will most definitely being using your services on our next visit, 100%. Keep it small and easy, unlike some of the other cram-the-boats-full-of-divers places that were clear to see around the island. You guys are the best!! We expect nothing less when we return :)

A few words to the negative posters on here - a) "tank not full" well done for knowing how to check using your pressure gauge, you are a certified diver and grown up enough to place the tank in the empty corner and grab another; b) "unfriendly staff" = unfriendly divers (perhaps?), divers and those that find passion in this sport are generally of similar spirit and humour, maybe you were the odd one out; c) "disorganised" well, that can be a very generic statement to make, perhaps they appear to be disorganised while trying to organise a deluge of disorganised divers.

“Relax Service - No pushy sales”
Reviewed November 12, 2012

Wanna Dive were hassle free and relaxed and did not push sales of courses or trips unlike most set ups. Member of our group did there Advanced and he said they were fantastic, professional and willing to put additional time in to help.

They have a number of tank pick up and drop offs across the Island making it more convenient that other dive outfits.

“Dive Tastic :)”
Reviewed November 2, 2012

The staff were all so awesome, super friendly and very helpful. On the guided dives they went out of their way to make us comfortable with the dive. Only negative, would be when they are busy as they were when we first arrived there was a shortage of gear, still they sorted us out. Also it would be nice to see the boat going out twice per day giving more options for doing the 6 boat dives as is a common package to add to the free air. Overall though we would use Wanna Dive again, the staff really made it fun. Thanks Andy, Alex, Steve and Co.

“Just Amazing Dives.... :D”
Reviewed October 22, 2012

Well done I think that will be very difficult to say something about Wannadive since that they are just amazing guys and very helpful whenever you need and want. We stay guest at The Dive Hut and everything was arranged by then for 1 week unlimited air/nitrox. At wannadive we met Andy, that was our first contact to do the briefing, Julia afterall and Bart, that is not a Simpson, but so crazy funny and amazing. We loved met you guys! Ours moments were just fantastic. In wannadive you can just park your car near a small warehouse pick your air/nitrox and go to dive. Whenever you want you can do it and how many time you can desire dive. I did something around 4/5 dives a day, including night dives and when my 1st stage regulator broke Bart was ther to fix it fastly and perfectly... :D
