Confined water dives (confined open water or swimming pool):
Buddy Dive Resort has got two pools on the property, just a few steps away from the classrooms and the ocean.
Open water dive conditions:
The visibility exceeds 100 feet (30 meters) and our average water temperature is 80 degrees Fahrenheit (29c). The fringing reef begins close to the shore, usually, a short 30 feet (10 meters) swim or less, making Bonaire world-renowned for its ease of shore diving.
Classroom details:
The classrooms at Buddy Dive Resort are conveniently located at the Buddy Dive Resort dive shop, just a few steps away from the house reef and pools. The classrooms are comfortable (airconditioned) and cozy.
Things to see on fun dives:
With as many as 60 officially listed dive sites on Bonaire and another 20 dive sites on Klein Bonaire, the island truly is a Divers Paradise! For more info visit: https://buddydive.com/about-bonaire/diving/
