Buddy Dive Resort guests can enjoy morning, afternoon and evening boat trips to the nearby island of Klein Bonaire and other sites inaccessible to shore diving aboard one of our six boats. Our boats are all fully equipped for a trip of boat diving Bonaire.

Dive Buddy

Both guest and personnel were very exited to see the first glimpse of the custom designed yacht cat boat on the horizon next to Klein Bonaire in 2009.

The boat is completely innovative to the scuba diving industry. This motor cat boat has room for 24 divers on a 3-tank dive. It has everything on board that a diver needs like rinse buckets, a camera table, a sundeck, a shaded area, and an easy entry platform for both going in and out of the water. After your dive, you can enjoy the sun and stunning views from a comfortable seat on the fly-bridge.

For your safety, all of our boats are equipped with first aid kits and O2, two way radios and appropriate rescue equipment.

Private Charter
