Eat, Sleep, (Buddy) Dive!
An unhurried, unspoiled natural paradise offering spectacular sunsets, gentle breezes and crystal clear, turquoise waters. Buddy’s is a resort where you can DIVE DIVE DIVE, take part in a multitude of activities or just sit back, relax and enjoy the atmosphere.
At Buddy Dive Bonaire, owned by family Van der Valk, we’re known for our casual atmosphere, personable staff, spacious accommodations and a dive operation that has something for every diver: comfortable boats, complete rental and retail center, exceptional staff, and a unique “Drive Thru” with a two-lane air/nitrox fill station. No matter which apartment you are staying in, you’re never further than a giant stride away from our popular and lively house reef which is perfect for diving and snorkeling, day and night.
Climb into the rental truck you receive automatically with your Drive & Dive package, and take advantage of the 60 dive sites, accessible from the shore line of Bonaire or tour the island with a guide on one of many excursions available to you through the Activity Center. Divers, snorkelers, adventurers and leisure travelers will feel equally at home at Buddy Dive.
You will want to save plenty of time to relax in a hammock, lounge by one of our two pools, simply catch some rays or saunter on down to Blennies Restaurant for a cocktail before sampling some of the local specialties.
The Van der Valk Bonaire family will give you a warm welcome to your second home away from home. Eat, sleep, (Buddy) dive!
