Bonaire

Shore Diving Capital

 

Where we are diving

Welcome to your underwater paradise. With abundant marine life, over 80 official dive sites, and breathtaking views you’ll never want to leave. Bonaire is often referred to as the shore diving capital of the world. Its crystal-clear waters are perfect for any diver at any level. The calm waters allow novice divers to swim parallel to the shore with minimal currents. Advanced divers will enjoy the unlimited shore dives and freedom to explore the ocean floor. Swimming along with the large sponges and sea-fans, you’re bound to spot angelfish, butterflyfish, seahorses, crabs, and shrimp.

Each dive site in Bonaire is marked with a large yellow rock with the site name painted on it. This makes it easy for you to hop in the car and just drive to your next site. No plans or schedules. You’re on island time now and the sea is yours.

Michael Drago, Retail Sales Manager and Advanced Open Water Instructor

I began diving back in 2009 and became an Advanced Open Water Diver in 2012. Since beginning my diving career I had the dream of being able to retire in the Caribbean and run a dive shop/bed and breakfast. In September of 2019, that dream came a lot earlier than I anticipated by joining the SeaVentures family. I completed my Open Water Instructor rating in April of 2021. I have enjoyed teaching my passion to other divers and look forward to making others excited about diving as much as I am.

Top 5 reasons you should come to Bonaire!

 

1. Unlimited Nitrox… I love the smell of nitrox in the morning!

 

2. 24/7 diving in beautiful water with over 80 marked dive sites.

 

3. If you think you may be salty try Salt Pier.

 

4. f you want a morning workout head on over to 1000 steps.

 

5. You get to dive with the ONE and ONLY Drago!
