Bonaire - New Years!

All Experience Levels
Buddy Dive Resort
December 28, '19 - January 4, '20

What could be better than celebrating the beginning of a new year in sunny Bonaire? Enjoy easy, stress-free diving in one of the Caribbean’s first marine protected areas.

Trip Leader: Mike Pivacek


Bonaire is famous for healthy, stunning reefs and some of the easiest diving in the Caribbean. The fringing reef system is in close proximity to the shore, making access to over 80 dive sites about as easy as it can be. The diving options are endless with something for every experience level!

Bonaire is also the perfect training ground for anyone interested in pursuing continuing education opportunities. If you are eager to improve your navigation skills, explore the wonders of night diving, learn more about coral ecology, or get more familiar with the fish species you are seeing on every dive, this is the perfect trip for you.

Bonaire is also a fantastic destination for snorkelers as many of the sites the divers visit are excellent snorkeling sites. Buddy Dive Resort is one of the best dive resorts in the Caribbean with custom dive boats and awesome shore diving right off the property. Once everyone is ready to start exploring, the rental trucks that come with each room are ready and waiting to cruise around the island to check out the variety of sites. There is nothing like having the freedom to determine your own schedule and Bonaire certainly delivers every time!
