Once on Bonaire

The first day starts with a swim test followed by confined water sessions in the morning and the afternoon. This is approximately a six-hour day. On the following two days, the open water dives are completed from our dock or from one of our boats, one each morning and one each afternoon.

Our classes are small averaging two or three students per class. Everything is included except the Bonaire Marine Park tag, tags are required for all diving on Bonaire. Please schedule the course in advance.
