We discovered Bon Photo when my husband brought his new Go Pro to Bonaire and found out he needed a special Red Filter and underwater housing. Bon Photo did not have these available on island, but we were able to rent an underwater still camera from them. The camera they rented to us was a Nikon Cool Pix. This was my husband's first experience using a still camera - all of his other dives were filmed using a movie camera. We met Leo, one of the owners, on a Sunday, even though the shop was technically closed. He was extremely helpful - showed my husband how to use the camera - and also said he could bring the camera back the next day to have the photos downloaded to a DVD and also for Leo to review the pics and offer tips for any that did not turn out well. Paul took the camera back and, to his delight, found most of the photos to be very good. Leo tweaked a few buttons on the housing as they were sticking underwater, and sent my husband off for a few more days of filming. When we returned the camera, we also met Leo's wife and co-owner, Tsuzanna. She takes breathtaking underwater photos and is equally as helpful and charming as Leo. They are assisted by Leanne, who is from the U.S. She downloaded the rest of the pics to a DVD and also gave us travel tips for the next day as we wanted to visit Spelonk Lighthouse. Highly recommend a visit while on Bonaire, even though it's a little off the beaten path. You will need to take a dirt road, so recommend a truck of four-wheel drive. If you need camera assistance while on Bonaire, or if you want to take a trip to a cave or go on a hike, Bon Photo can also help with that too.
