We used Bonaire Dive & Adventure as our diving base on our trip there in Jan 2014. The whole set-up is extremely professional. On arrival there was a comprehensive orientation briefing. Tanks are always available; kit is stored securely; and help is on hand for advice or tools for adjusting kit etc. Everyone is helpful and knowledgeable and there is a good dive shop. Access to the superb house reef is from their private pier. Everything is so convenient, and so good, you could be tempted never to get in your truck and do the superb shore dives around the island! But we dragged ourselves away and did so as you'd miss a range of great dives if you did not. We found that, being with BDA and staying on-site in the adjacent, lovely Den Laman Condos, it was great for that early morning dive, or for an evening dive after being out shore diving during the day. And once you've dived the house reef and know it, you can do a night dive, as we did, and dive accompanied by huge, magnificent, silver tarpon!. In the surrounding area there is access to shops and places to eat, and it is only a short drive into Kralendjik. However, try the restaurant right on the pier here first: beautifully situated right on the ocean facing Klein Bonaire - or enjoy a drink here in the evening watching the fabulous sunset after a satisfying day's diving. We were here for 2 weeks in Jan 2014 and I feel that Kurt has overstated the access issues. There were no animosities apparent, and if I owned such a great facility, I'd want to protect it too! We have experienced other dive operations on Bonaire and would rate BDA our preferred operation by far.
