BUDDY DIVE RESORT
Buddy Dive Resort pride themselves on fostering a casual atmosphere, with personable staff, spacious accommodations and a dive operation that has something for every diver. The resort boasts eleven modern buildings housing spacious one, two and three bedroom apartments, a full service dive centre, activity desk, two swimming pools, restaurant and pool bar. Each air conditioned apartment has a TV, telephone and fully equipped kitchen with microwave, stove and refrigerator – great for keeping your beer cold, and as all apartments have a balcony or a patio you’ll be sipping sundowners all evening! Safe deposit boxes are in every apartment.
Their comfortable boats, complete rental and retail centre, and a unique "Drive Thru" with a two-lane air/nitrox fill station mean that diving with Buddy Dive could not be any easier! No matter which apartment you are staying in, you're never further than a giant stride away from the popular and lively house reef which is perfect for diving and snorkelling at any time of the day or night. Divers staying at Buddy Dive receive a rental truck as part of their package, meaning you can take advantage of the dive sites accessible from the shore line of Bonaire. Truks are standard shift, double cabin pick-ups that hold four passengers plus gear easily. Larger vehicles are available for bigger groups.
The on-site restaurant is a lively but relaxed place where you can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner. Start the day with a delicious breakfast. Choose from a wide variety of local fruits, cereals, breads, cold cuts of meat or cheese, pancakes and syrup, French toast, bacon and a variety of eggs freshly cooked to order. It's your choice whether you want to wake up early or take it slow as the breakfast buffet is available to you from 0630 - 1000. Lunch is served from 1100 - 1700 at The Poolbar, with a selection of salads, sandwiches, burgers and delicious fruit shakes to choose from. It's the perfect time to observe the activity happening on the dive dock below you. After diving you will want to save plenty of time to relax in a hammock, lounge by one of the two pools, or simply catch some rays or saunter on down to The Poolbar for a cocktail before sampling some of the local specialties.
All levels of divers can enjoy the freedom of the unlimited shore diving package, making as many dives as you like! On the dock are several convenient benches for gear set-up and two sturdy ladders that provide easy access to the water. Rinse tanks are located at the Drive Thru as well as on the docks where there is an extensive gear storage room. Morning and afternoon boat dives are available. Guided day and night dives are also arranged to great sites such as the Salt Pier or Town Pier, which have become a Mecca for photographers. Nitrox is available as well as rental gear and a variety of courses.
