    Buddy Dive Resort custom family dive vacation packages 

    Buddy Dive is simplicity at its finest. It’s charming and very family-friendly. Parents that know Bonaire well like to hang back and enjoy a later breakfast and coffee by the sea, and then at your leisure, jump off the dock with your dive buddy and kids. Bonaire is easy to navigate and even easier to dive. Rated the world’s best shore diving, this island is calm, warm, and clear 12 months a year. We can customize your package to include shore or boat dives as you desire, with or without a local guide. Just let us know what your needs are 1.803.419.2556.

    You can go at your own pace every day; no hustle, no deadlines, and no worries. Buddy Dive has 24-hour diving from shore with some of the best marine life right under the dock and the wall just 20 meters away. There are giant tarpon, schools of silversides, and plenty of angelfish, just waiting to be photographed the moment you jump in.

    The condos are simple and basic. They are perfect for families that come to be outdoors and enjoy the underwater world. Buddy Dive Resort offers studios for a 2 person buddy team, for example – a father and son, couple or mom, and daughter. For 3 people the 1 bedroom will work, you can have a daybed added to the living room if needed. Or you can go with the 2 bedrooms to give everyone their space. For larger families of 5 and 6, the 3 bedrooms 3 bathrooms are the way to go. Each bedroom can be configured for a king bed or 2 single beds. The villas are fully furnished with full kitchens and spacious living rooms overlooking the Caribbean sea.

    Family Dive Adventures will customize your package to your family’s needs. Mom and dad can choose to go boat diving while the kids are in SASY, Seal Team, or even taking a JOW class, but parents will have opportunities to dive with their kids as well. If you or the kids are getting certified, we will arrange for PADI eLearning to be done prior to arrival so you can get the most out of your diving experience once on the island. If desired, we can arrange a private instructor to dive with you and your family on the extra days available after certification. See Gallery

    Another advantage to Bonaire is the fact it’s easier on the wallet than most other destinations, and the service is very family-friendly. The food is a mix of fresh-baked bread and buffets so no one leaves hungry. With multiple options for oceanfront dining, a dinner watching the sunset is an amazing experience. With the one, two, or three-bedroom villas, parents can have their own privacy while the kids enjoy their own space too.
