New on Bonaire: Online Nature Fee Portal

STINAPA Bonaire recently launched a website to enable the online purchase of the ‘STINAPA e-tag’. The famous plastic tags will be phased out to help reduce the production of plastic waste and support the mission to ban single use plastic items.

The STINAPA e-tag initiative fits with Buddy Dive’s pledge to and therefore Buddy Dive asks all guests to purchase their tag prior to arrival.

Effective immediately; the STINAPA e-tags can be purchased through After purchase guests will receive a confirmation email with a digital dive tag.

Everyone always needs to be able to present the e-tag ; therefore, guests are advised to print the confirmation email and bring this with them for check-in at the dive shop and to keep on them during the shore dives around our beautiful island.

Guests checking in at one of the Buddy Dive locations will be asked to bring the following documents to speed up the check-in process:

  • Printed version of E-tag purchase
  • Printed version of the Dive Registration form
  • ID card – this can be a dive certification card or driver’s license.

Prices for the new e-tags will be the same as the regular plastic tags: $45 per diver and $25 for non-divers per calendar year.

Until further notice the plastic tags will remain available for purchase at all Buddy Dive locations (Buddy Dive Resort, Belmar Oceanfront Apartments, Caribbean Club Bonaire and Buddy Dive Watersports in downtown Kralendijk) and can be paid for by Visa/MasterCard credit card or Maestro debit card.
