Our STORY

Family Business in Diver's Paradise

We are an international family of Spanish, American and Dutch divers, with more than 20 years of experience in the diving industry. We came to the Caribbean 7 years ago, after living / working on several islands, we managed to find the real Diver’s Paradise in Bonaire.

During our first visit to Bonaire, we did more than 70 spectacular shore dives in less than a month, it was love at first sight. Six months later we settled in paradise.

After three years working for the large diving operations on the island, we missed our former small dive shop, where we offered a relaxed, personal and closer service. We told our family in the US and immediately decided to get down to work together, since then we have been investing all our enthusiasm and experience in this wonderful project.

Dive Like a Local! Another way to dive

Since we landed on Bonaire, we have been diving almost every day. Diving is so accessible here that there is no excuse not to do it. Bonaire is a shore diving paradise, you just need to have a truck, diving equipment and some tanks. Bonaire Marine’s Park offers more than 85 dive sites, most of them accessible from shore, making it possible to dive independently 24/7.

We love diving so much that we also dive on our days off. After working all week in the crowded resorts, we began to explore the island looking for new diving spots, little frequented and off the official map. Shortly after we started tuning our truck, the first thing was a good tanks rack, a big cooler and a couple of camping chairs. Later we add a lockable tool box, a camping shower and a folding table.
Our excursions turned into amazing adventures, sometimes carrying ladders and ropes to reach the most inaccessible places.

Now is the time to share with others, our island lifestyle turned into your dream diving vacation.
Dive like a local!

In addition to being fantastic divers, we are professionals in enjoying life and especially our beloved Bonaire. During your stay, do not hesitate to ask us about how to get the most out of the island.
We invite you to delve into the wonderful activities the island offers, both terrestrial and marine, which makes Bonaire a unique destination.

From the depths of our pristine waters to the height of our tallest peak, Brandaris, you will feel Bonaire’s magic wash over you from the moment you arrive and throughout the days as you become attuned to Bonaire’s unhurried pace. We encourage you to explore, to enjoy, to become a part of Bonaire, absorbing our nature, our culture, and our cuisine… Like a local!

“What makes it most special though is the welcoming friendliness of the staff. They take their job very serious and take extra time showing or explaining things and upcoming questions. Or just to have a little chat after an exiting day of diving.

Thanks a lot for this amazing experience!”

“We’ve just completed our PADI Wreck Diving course with them. Exceptional instructors and all of the staff are friendly and accommodating. Safety is a very high priority and the whole experience from planning our dives to talking them through afterwards was great. Highly recommended!

“It has been our third dive trip to Bonaire, we were looking to do something different and explore new dive sites, especially those that are not marked on the official map. It was a success! I will never forget our Playa Frans dive, it was magical.”
