Afternoon

The afternoon is a great time to lay back, relax and cool off in the crystal-clear waters of Bonaire. Visit Te Amo Beach, Donkey’s Beach or Bachelor’s Beach. These beaches are easily accessible and great for snorkeling. So don’t forget your snorkel gear!

Here, you’ll find dive operators who’ll teach the basics of SCUBA to children as young as 10*. Many offer full snorkel certifications, one-day introductory SCUBA classes, as well as junior and full open water certification classes.

*Age and skill requirements vary by certifying agencies and individual Dive Operator standards. Refer to Dive Operators for individual menu of courses.

Protecting Bonaire

For Generations to Come

Bonaire is a true ecological marvel, so we work every day to preserve our piece of paradise.

Keeping Bonaire’s reefs healthy is critical to keeping the Caribbean healthy as well. And while we’ve spent generations protecting the reefs, it was the vision of Captain Don Stewart, that really made it happen. As early as 1962, he was the first to recognize the importance of our reefs. In that year, Captain Don not only established the first dive operation on Bonaire, but was instrumental in organizing Bonaire’s Marine Park.

Today, we use all we’ve learned about our reefs to keep them healthy for generations to come. Thanks to Captain Don’s leadership and our unwavering dedication, today you’ll find over 85 dive sites beneath our turquoise seas, with 54 of them easily accessible from shore. Once under the surf, you’ll find thriving reefs teeming with more than 350 species of fish and 57 species of coral. And thanks to our tropical climate, you can dive 365 days a year, seven days a week, 24 hours a day.
