BONAIRE diving Holidays

Bonaire Diving Holidays

Small island paradise…

Diving holidays in Bonaire are truly special. Bonaire is a small island in the South Caribbean and at just 21 miles long, it has a welcoming and chilled-out way of life. On Bonaire diving holidays, day or night, you will find many lively bars, numerous restaurants serving tasty menus and a good selection of shops.

Over 50 dive sites from Bonaire are accessible from the shore, most at depths of less than 10 metres. Average water temperatures are 26°C all year-round and visibility is typically 30 metres plus. The best way to see these magnificent dive sites is to hire a vehicle so you can drive and dive whenever you want to. Divers often encounter seahorses, the island’s emblem, turtles, jacks, friendly tarpon and, on rare occasions, a frogfish or two.

Bonaire’s uncrowded reefs are perfect for photographers and those who like to dive at their own pace. Bonaire really is the home of diving freedom.

Flights & Transfers

KLM offers flights from several regional UK airports including London, Manchester, Birmingham, East Midlands and Glasgow. UK flights touch down in Amsterdam for a plane change, followed by a direct flight to Bonaire twice a week and via Aruba or Curacao at other times.

“We never really thought about Bonaire before Holly suggested it. It really was great to dive straight from the shore and not have the time lost in transfers. A real surprise!”

“Charming, small and uncrowded. Would totally go back and that was just underwater…”
