Day 2-7

Boat dive or shore dives, your choice for the day's adventure for the next week

Is shore diving the choice of the day? With as many as 60 officially listed dive sites on Bonaire, most of them easily accessible from shore, the island is known as the Shore Diving Capital of the World!

Bonaire’s sea abounds with beautiful marine life and a fascinating variety of multi-colored tropical fish, there is lots to see while diving on Bonaire. The sea is remarkably calm and conditions are superb for both scuba diving and snorkelling.

On average, the visibility exceeds 100 feet (30 meters) and the average water temperature is 80 degrees Fahrenheit (28°C). The fringing reef begins close to the shore, usually a short 30 feet (10 meters) swim or less, making Bonaire world-renowned for its ease of shore diving. Bonaire’s waters offer something special for every diver. Novice divers will appreciate the calm waters, reefs that run parallel to shore, and minimal currents while diving on Bonaire.

Or maybe boat dives are your preference. Boat Diving on Bonaire offers divers a great opportunity to dive sites close to shore and on Klein Bonaire. Boat diving with Buddy Dive let the diver explore the beautiful underwater world under the guidance of one of our experienced dive staff members. Buddy Dive Resort guests can enjoy morning, afternoon and evening boat trips on one of their six boats.

Owner, Greg Carter, grew up on the California coast where surfing was THE sport, Beachboys THE music, and scuba diving was an adventure for those few brave souls. Greg's hero was Mike Nelson, played by Lloyd Bridges, on the TV show "Sea Hunt." Some 40 plus years later, scuba diving has made great advances in equipment and safety, but the same passion for adventure still lives in our hearts.

Fast forward 20 years from the days of "Sea Hunt" and Greg found himself at Jack's Diving Locker, Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii, signing up for an open water scuba class. Diving became a real life adventure and a Rescue Diver card. After 10 years of diving the Hawaiian waters, Greg returned to San Francisco and founded the Oceanic Resource Foundation to pursue marine conservation and education.

With some 25 years of scuba diving under his weight belt, Greg continues the adventure with Liquid Diving Adventures, to share exotic destinations near and far and meet creatures large and small. From tiny lettuce slugs to whale sharks, gentle giants of the sea, we are amazed by every dive and the variety of life in the oceans.
