Buddy Dive Resort
Buddy Dive Resort, a PADI Five-Star Gold Palm Resort, gives divers what they want in this "Diver's Paradise"--all the comforts of home, plus the keys to some of the greatest diving in the Caribbean.
Start with comfortable accommodations in a size and style to fit your party's needs. Add in all the amenities you'd expect from a dedicated dive resort, plus a house reef that puts legendary Bonaire diving literally just a few steps away. And then top it off with two features that make Buddy Dive ideally suited for the Bonaire dive traveler--an easy-to-drive pickup truck included with your Buddy Dive Drive-and-Dive package, and a two-lane, drive-thru fill station offering both air and nitrox. Boat dive with Buddy Dive in the morning and then, after a great on-property lunch, jump in the truck and go back to visit your favorites among virtually any of the 60 shore-accessible dive sites surrounding the island of Bonaire.
The atmosphere at Buddy Dive is Caribbean-casual. The staff and guests are personable divers whom you'll probably be friends with for life. And with the on-site Bella Villa and Lions Den restaurants, three swimming pools, an activity center and stellar on-site snorkeling, even nondivers will find Buddy Dive ideally suited for the Caribbean vacation of a lifetime.
Bonaire's waters offer something for every diver, from the newly certified to the seasoned traveler. Sloping reef and near-to-shore sites help beginners build confidence on their first ocean outings, while pristine corals and world-famous photo possibilities--including frogfish and reef squid--offer plenty to fascinate the diver who's already filled up a few logbooks.
