Bonaire 2008



Back by popular demand! Lee & Sheila are heading down to Bonaire on March 15, 2008. We'd love to have you join us at the shore diving capitol of the world.

This is our third visit to Buddy Dive Resort. We have found Buddy Dive to be the perfect combination of service and laid back island life. The resort offers many amenities including; 2 swimming pools, a full service dive shop, a newly renovated seaside bar, an on-site restaurant, special-event dinners during the week, and a rum-punch party on Friday evening with live music on the pool deck.

We will be staying in spacious 1-bedroom apartments. Each apartment comes complete with private balcony or patio, air conditioned bedroom with queen sized bed (2 twins available), living room with cable T. V. & phone, and a fully equipped kitchen with microwave, stove, refrigerator & dishwasher. All this plus daily housekeeping and beautiful views.

Along with each apartment, Buddy Dive provides a vehicle for your use during the week. Buddy Dive's drive-through air fill station and unlimited air fills make it possible to get 20 dives or more in during your vacation.

Bonaire is famous for its incredible macro-life. We've seen everything from huge schools of anchovies, turtles cruising by, Long-lure Frogfish, many scorpion fish, splendid toads, octopus and much more.

Buddy dive is situated on the leeward side of the island so waves & current are very rarely a concern. During shore dives at the Buddy Dive house reef you are likely to see huge eel under the wreck at Captain Don's or take in a night dive to see Charlie the 6 foot tarpon glide past you.

Our trip includes 6 boat dives and unlimited shore diving. All dive sites are well marked along the seaside road, and you simply pull over, gear up and walk in. The reef along this side of the island lies less than 25 yards from shore in most places and provides a gentle drop along the shallow coral from about 35 feet to a wide shelf at around 70 feet. The small island of Klein Bonaire lies off the main island and offers some wall diving, but for the most part the diving in Bonaire is low effort, shallow diving over some of the most beautiful soft coral and macro-life available in our part of the world. Photographers, this is the destination for you!
