Hello! My missus and I are going to be taking our first-time trip to Bonaire September 2-9, so will be diving the 3rd through the 8th. We've got our AOW and Nitrox certification, but are still newish to diving with 30+ dives. We'd be interested in meeting up for a few dives dives, especially since we're utterly unfamiliar with the area. We've bought the Bonaire Shore Diving guidebook, and are staying at Den Laman.

Hi All

I will be in Bonaire from 28th August until 6th October (def in Bonaire first 3 weeks then might visit other islands). I am looking for dive buddies and will be staying at Den Laman. I have not dived Bonaire before and I was considering getting a local guide at the start of my stay. I have not hired a truck. I am a PADI rescue cert diver with 100 dives. It would be great to meet up with all/any of you for some dives.
Look forward to hearing from you.

Hi Elaine:

Will be on island Sept. 17 to Oct. 2. Staying at my Condo at Sand$. Will be on the dock at Bari Reef several times a day. We at least dive the Bari twice a day and go else where for two dives or so. See you then and meet up for a dive or so.

I'll be able to do orientation when I arrive on the 10th so if you're able we could meet on the 11th to dive.

Hi Sandy
I am after a little advice, as you know I have not been diving in Bonaire before. I am unsure as to whether I should try and book anything orientation, guided, courses (I want to do some photography courses and peraps complete my master scube diver while I am there) before I arrive. If I had limited time I would have more definite plans, as I have 6 weeks between Bonaire and ? Curacao, I am planning to arrive and relax a bit for a couple of days and then suss out what to do re diving and courses. Does that seem sensible to you? If you were using a dive outfit on Bonaire who would you dive with?

Many thanks
