Buddy Dive is a charming, very family friendly resort.
It’s simplicity at its finest.
by Margo Peyton
If I don’t feel like getting on a boat with other divers first thing in the morning, I can hang back and enjoy a late breakfast and coffee by the sea. Then, at my leisure, I can jump off the dock with another parent or even my own kids and have a dive that’s just as good as those on the boat. I can go at my own pace every day. No hustle, no deadlines and no worries. Buddy Dive is a perfect place for adults that have always wanted to start diving, or try diving to awaken the dream. We will arrange a discover scuba dive or provide full certification for adults who want to learn. Just give me a call and let’s get you diving.
I love Bonaire because it’s easy diving for all family divers. Wrecks, reefs, and a mini wall are just a jump off the dock and tanks are available 24/7 with a full-service dive store. The entire staff is family focused, ready and willing to please. The foods consist of a variety of fresh baked bread and full dinner buffets that include salads, meat, fresh fish, and fruits daily. As well as, fresh baked goodies for the sweet tooth. Frozen cappuccinos, delightful drinks, no one leaves hungry or thirsty. I have yet to experience ocean front dining as pleasurable, as dining in front of a sunset view at Buddy Dive.
I love the home-away-from-home feeling I have with the one, two and three bedroom villas. My husband and I have our own privacy and the kids enjoy their own space too.
Kids Sea Camp, at Buddy Dive has something for all ages, Adults go diving in the morning, kids have a host of activities to choose from, including tubing, diving, snorkeling, photography, painting, kayaking, slack line and a treasure hunt. The non-divers can relax and read a book, paint with a KSC guest artist, kayak, bird watch, shop or take an island tour to see the history and culture of Bonaire.
The weather in Bonaire is 99% sunny and beautiful above and below the surface. Jump off the dock or off a boat and it’s mostly calm, clear and beautiful. With Kids Sea Camp, we have pizza and movie night under the big thatched roof pool bar, live music on Friday nights and a host of slide presentations by SeaLife.
Afternoons are at your leisure and allow you time to enjoy some amazing shore diving with your kids. Evenings are full of new friends, laughter and family time. The Kids Sea Camp group enjoys private boats, instructors, and guides. The kids enjoy the same, with a little more fun and activities added to that stated above.
I chose Buddy Dive because it’s family owned, family operated and family focused! Buddy Dive Resort is a PADI Career Development Center. The staff is kid friendly and both trained and experienced in teaching and diving with kids.
Michelle and Paul Coolen make up the GM team, and also have two beautiful little girls, Nordja and Pleun, who will hopefully join us soon in our Sasy program.
