My wife and myself had used Bonaire Dive and Adventure since 2000. 19 dive trips. I was always satisfied. Unfortunately Andre has retired effective January 1 2017. This operation is now in the hands of Dive Friends Bonaire. I am not aware of any problems with Dive Friends and they are also offering the free upgrade to Nitrox.
The boat crew was fine, but the shore crew was surly and not very accommodating (except for the local lady in the dive shop--she was great). The tank service, dock and gear storage room were convenient. But, you had to repeatedly request that they change the water in the rinse tanks, which were filthy. It was especially bad as a... 更多
We did all our renting at this place. Everyone was great and the service was excellent. We also took our nitrox course there since it was cheaper than doing it at our local shop and the class was great. We did all of our own diving and they accommodate divers on their own schedule as well as offer boat dives... 更多
Top of the list dive shop!!! Andre and Katherine do excellent job running an efficient and easy going dive shop. The service is with a smile, always ready to help and very good for self reliant divers. Tanks are always available (during and after hours), good equipment to rent and very helpful staff in and out of boats. Speaking of... 更多
I'm an experienced diver but travelled with some who are just starting out on their diving journey . All the staff were helpful and knowledgeable and the centre was very relaxed. The briefing we received answer all questioned asked. We spent most of our time shore diving and enjoying the freedom Bonaire gives you. We did do three boat dives... 更多
We had a great time doing shore dives here. The staff were efficient and professional. The dive masters were knowledgeable and friendly.
This was our 14th time at BDA. Other reviews have called it a laid back operation. That is exactly why we like it. One of the few dive operations that has a big gear room instead of small lockers where in 3 days of diving the smell becomes unbearable. The gear room has 24 hour access and enough open air... 更多
I am an experienced dive Pro who has taken my family of novice divers to Bonaire a number of times, this was our fourth outing with BD&A. The operation offers an excellent location and infrastructure (24/7 tank access, securing gear, solid dock access to Bari reef one of the best sites on the island) but it is either too laid... 更多
This was our second time diving with BDA and it is consistently great. Laid back but attentive service. Dive guides were thoughtful and catered to diverse needs of those who were diving. Great Lionfish course. Killed a few and then had them prepared / ate them at the local restaurant.
This was our third trip to Bonaire and our second time using BDA. We made a mistake our second time and used a different dive shop - will not make that mistake again. It is easy to register and hassle-free. The dive staff is extremely accommodating within reason. The dock offers ridiculously easy access to the most diverse reef in... 更多
