How it normally works


You will be met with a welcome drink for adults and smoothie for kids. Check-in, get comfortable, and we will meet at the pool bar for a Kids Sea Camp Orientation at 6 PM. You will meet camp staff and given program information. Kids programs will begin on Sunday morning and run through the following Thursday for 5 days of activities the 6th day, Friday, is “Family Day” and you will enjoy time together snorkeling or diving.
You can start diving once you have checked in and completed your orientation dive. Bonaire Marine Park regulations require you to participate in an orientation program before you enter the water for your first dive. At Buddy Dive, this orientation is held each day. If your flight arrives in time for you to participate in either dive orientation, you can begin diving the day you arrive, and this would count as the first diving day of your diving package. Divers arriving on afternoon flights will attend orientation the following morning.
The diving schedule will be departures at 8:30 AM and 10:30 AM, 2 boat dives each morning Sunday – Thursday, and Friday will be a Family Day dive. We have also Kids learn to dive and snorkel in Bonaire scheduled a night boat dive on Tuesday night while your kids will be enjoying pizza and a movie.
*Please note that kids programs end at 2:30 PM, so if you chose a shore dive or an additional afternoon dive at 2:15 you will be responsible to make sure your kids are attended to. It should not be a problem as we are always available but it will need to be arranged with prior notice.
