The beautiful Dutch Antilles island of Bonaire offers the diver a chance to dive some of the Caribbean’s finest reefs in total freedom, without the constraints of a dive escort. Buddy Dive Resort is a first class diving resort set upon its own beach with magnificent views over the turquoise waters of the southern Caribbean. The resort comprises four modern buildings with one, two and three bedroom spacious apartments, a full service dive centre, two swimming pools, restaurant, pool bar, vehicle rentals and a dive-thru airfill station. All apartments have fully equipped kitchen, living area, air-conditioned bedroom and large balcony or patio with ocean or tropical garden view. Air-conditioned hotel rooms are also available. A short stairway provides easy access to the tranquil ocean – excellent snorkelling and swimming.
Bonaire’s sea abounds with beautiful marine life and a fascinating variety of multi-coloured tropical fish. The sea is remarkably clear and conditions are superb for both diving and snorkelling. The Bonaire Marine Park boasts more than 80 dive sites and the islands’ implementation of marine conservation efforts more than 30 years ago have helped to keep its marine system in good health. Visibility runs from 25 to 40 metres with average water temperatures around 27c. The fringing reef begins close to the shore, usually a short 30 ft swim or less, making Bonaire world renowned for its shore diving. Experienced divers can enjoy the freedom of the resorts’ unlimited airfill package, making as many dives a day as they want according to their profile.
