Bonaire is consistently rated as the top shore diving destination in the world and as a pioneer in preserving nature. There are over eighty dive sites, many of which are easily accessible by shore. The moment you arrive in Bonaire, you’ll sense the tranquility of the island and the absence of crowds. You’ll also be amazed at the clear water, with nearly 100 feet of visibility, and the spectacular diving and snorkeling just a few feet from the shoreline.

Buddy Dive Resort will be your home for the week. The spacious condos, complete with a kitchen, allow you to cook your meals if you desire. Each condo comes with a truck and the on-site compressors are conveniently located near the parking lot for easy access and loading of tanks. When you dive in Bonaire, you’re on your own schedule. You determine when and where you’ll shore dive throughout the week. When you’re not diving, the  downtown area has quaint shops and art galleries to explore. You’ll also find a variety of wonderful restaurants on the island.

Bonaire is truly a diver’s paradise!

What Conditions to Expect

Water temperatures average a warm 78-84°F (25.6-28.9°C), with visibility averaging over 100 feet (30m), and frequently reaching up to 150 feet (50m). Water temperatures do vary widely by season and location. Unless planning deep, technical dives, it’s doubtful that any thermoclines will be felt within normal recreational diving depths. Water temperatures are normally at their lowest in late December and January. By March and April, the water begins to warm up, usually peaking at its warmest from late August through November.

Visitors enjoy a temperate climate. Average yearly temperature is 82°F (27.8°C); water 80°F (26.7°C); rainfall 22 inches; humidity 76%, sunny all year round. Just north of the equator, Bonaire always enjoys the advantage of daylight for 12 hours.
