Bonaire 2022 & 2023!

It's back to our favorite Caribbean dive spot, Bonaire.  Of all the places we go, this is consistently the best all-around and easiest diving we can find.  Just find a yellow rock and get wet.

For 2022 we are going back to Bonaire for Christmas and/or New Years.  Yes, you can do one or two weeks this trip.  This is our most popular dive island because of the fantastic fish life and unlimited diving available all over the island.  Add free nitrox and you can dive your heart out. It's back to Buddy Dive with the great location, drive-through dive shop, fantastic breakfast (Mary LOVES the croissants at breakfast), and lots of other amenities. As a treat, this year we included 6 – one tank boat dives. Having unlimited shore diving included allows you to do as many or as few dives as you wish. Just dive when you want, as often as you want.  Nitrox is free with our package. The dive shop is right on the property so tanks are always ready.  Just pull up, grab a few tanks, and hit the road.  Each condo comes with a rental pickup for you to travel the island and go diving.  We have studios. 1 Bedroom, and 2 Bedroom suites reserved.  We can also get 3 Bedrooms if that fits your needs better.   

Airfare to Bonaire is not included so you can choose your airline or even use points.  Delta flies out of Roanoke through Atlanta, American goes through Miami, and United goes through Newark. Other airlines have flights out of nearby cities. 

Bonaire is a part of the Netherlands.  You'll see a lot of improvements if you haven't been there in a few years.  Some new development, but mostly improvements to the infrastructure.  Customs is quick and painless, modern grocery stores, road improvements, and new construction gets finished.  But still with the Bonaire charm and comfort.  They still drive on the same side of the road as we do. Great restaurants abound at reasonable prices.  Blennies is the resort's casual restaurant with daily happy hour.  Downtown has a good selection of restaurants within a 10-minute drive.  At Sea is a favorite of ours, as are La Terrazza, It Rains Fishes, Sebastians, and more. The breakfast buffet is extensive and a delight.  Though served buffet style it is truly a FULL breakfast.  Omelets and eggs cooked to order.  Pancakes or waffles many days. Sausages, bacon, prosciutto, and other meats. Fruits, juices, cereals.  More than I can list. To keep things interesting, we will be offering optional side trips throughout the week.  We'll might go to the Cadushy Distillery to see cactus liquor made (and sampled). Maybe a trip to the Donkey Sanctuary. Plus, we may think up some more. As always, on our Bonaire trip, you do what you want.  Join us for a morning or afternoon of guided diving, or do both.  Strike out on your own, visit downtown, tour the island, or chill at the resort.  This is YOUR vacation. No dive buddy?  No problem.  We always have singles diving looking for a buddy.   The problem is not finding a dive buddy, it's choosing which to go with.  And if you are a non-diver we always have others that prefer to be above rather than under the water.
