How Bonaire Boat Diving Works

Bonaire dive operators offer daily morning boat departures (either 1-tank or 2-tank trips) as well as afternoon boat trips. Many go to Klein Bonaire, as these sites can only be accessed by boat.

With so many dive sites within a 15-20 minute boat ride, you’ll be able to enjoy multiple boat trips each day.

Bonaire Boat Diving Packages

For a typical week-long dive trip, most divers choose from 6 to 12 tanks of boat dives in a package. Most packages also include unlimited tanks and air fills for unlimited shore diving. Additional boat dives can be purchased at the resort.

How Bonaire Shore Diving Works

Bonaire shore diving is unique with tanks available for diving 24/7. Grab a tank right at the water’s edge of your dive resort or rent a vehicle and dive anywhere you like.

Dive sites are marked with yellow stones around the island, as well as on dive site maps. Guidebooks are available to help you plan and execute your dive.

Your dive shop can recommend sites suitable to your experience — or hire a divemaster for a guided dive.

Bonaire Shore Diving Packages

The best value is a multi-day unlimited shore diving package. You’ll get access to an unlimited number of tanks/air fills to dive as much as you like, day or night.

Divers on an unlimited shore dive package can purchase boat dives during their stay or sign up for a guided dive from shore.
