    Default Best way to find compatible dive buddy?

    Hi everyone. Making my first trip to Bonaire August 15-19 and am very excited. Traveling with my non-diver wife. Anyone have suggestions on best way to find a compatible dive buddy? I am advanced, dive weekly in cold (50 degrees F), low viz., and current and am man avid (intermediate amateur) photographer/videographer. Thanks in advance!!

    Where are you staying? If at one of the oceanside resorts, there may well be a number of folks available. Ask the dive manager when you arrive. We will be at Habitat the following week.

    S0 excited for you! You'll love Bonaire. We have our 6th trip planned for September! Never thought I'd want to keep going back to same dive location year after year. Get Susan Porter book, Bonaire Shore Diving Made Easy. It's worth it and gives great info.

    Hi pnbooth: I've got exactly what you're looking for! My boyfriend is an experienced diver.... PLEASE take him off my hands for a few days ;-/

    Well that was my GF who doesnt want to promise me more than a few dives as my buddy. Seems she has some interest in lounging on the beach
    too. Anyway we also arrive on 8/19 so email me at tab098@gmail and maybe we can coordinate a few dives. I've been to Bonaire several times and know my way around reasonably well.

    Hi pnbooth:

    Not sure if you saw my (our) last reply but let me know if you're still looking for a dive buddy.

    My gf, Colleen and I will be returning to Bonaire, Sept 5- 13, and we have a similar difference in dive styles. She is often quite happy with a dive a day, while I prefer 4 or 5 tanks a day while on Bonaire.

    I would enjoy finding another diver or two to do some diving with, between Sept 5 and 12.

    This trip we will be staying at Buddy Dive

    Hey pnbooth, I made a mistake. We arrive 8/15 not 8/19. If you are still looking for a dive partner let me know. I'll have a local phone number but to coordinate this prior to arrival email me please at tab098@gmail.
