US History Channel’s Stan Lee’s Super Human features Patrick Musimu at Buddy Dive
Tuesday, 26 October 2010 18:40

For those who did not had the opportunity to visit our resort during the Buddy Dive Freediving Event 2010 last May, or for those who would like to be remembered to this amazing event we’re now able to share the episode of US History’s Stan Lee’s Super Human that features Patrick Musimu and Buddy Dive!

With the help of Buddy Dive’s staff and with all the safety issues in mind, Patrick Musimu, who was the first freediver to descend more then 200 meters (610 ft), together with Karol Meyer, Brazilian freediving specialist and holder of several records one being the world record of 18 minutes and 32 seconds in the Static Apnea discipline, broke the world record in the “Tandem No Limit” discipline at Bonaire in front of Buddy Dive Resort last May.

US History Channel took their chance to come to Bonaire during the event to shoot video material and interview Patrick for their show Stan Lee’s Super Humans. It turned out to be a great video.

Our 30 Years Anniversary, What a Celebration!
Tuesday, 26 October 2010 16:34

First of all we would like to take the chance of thanking everybody who came to celebrate our 30 years anniversary with us! It was a wonderful evening for our guests, staff, management, owners, and everybody else who carries a warm heart to Buddy Dive. Without so many Buddy Dive “ambassadors” this party would not have been such a great success!

In 30 years Buddy Dive of course a lot happened and changed. Most people will remember the annexation of former Lions Dive Resort, the opening of the new Poolbar, and the arrival of the new boats and vehicles. These are just a few examples that can be mentioned. Yet the biggest change in “Buddy Dive History” was announced during the anniversary party; Two Buddy Dive Liveaboard yachts will start sailing the Galapagos Islands as from September 2011.

During General Manager Paul Coolen’s speech, accompanied by a slide show with pictures from the past and present, the focus of the speech changed from the past, to present, to the future… “And now please have a look at the screen”, were Paul’s last words of his speech. Everybody looked up and a multi colored logo, that is familiar to most divers, appeared on the big screen. However, it looked odd… Instead of the words “Buddy Dive Resort Bonaire” the words “Buddy Dive Liveaboard Galapagos” were placed in the logo. The crowd was somehow confused. The words, the logo, it was difficult to place. Luckily a few second later everybody was taken out of their confusion when the screen showed a rendering picture of the liveaboard yachts to be build. With the projection of the yachts in their eyes all guests looked at the screen with amazement. Everybody understood: Buddy Dive Goes Liveaboard! The anniversary party was the perfect moment to release this exiting piece of news!


The announcement of the new liveaboards was not the only thing that got attention during the evening. We received a lot of pictures that were sent by people who entered the Buddy Dive Photo Contest. Although it was hard to pick the winners we made it to select the lucky ones and called them up stage to honor them and handover the prizes.

After all it was a very successful evening! We already look forward to the next Anniversary party to come.
