For 23 consecutive years, Bonaire has taken first place for top shore diving destination in the Caribbean and Atlantic region in SCUBA Diving magazine's Readers' Choice Awards. Enjoy your first SCUBA diving experience in Bonaire's award winning National Marine Park. The easy warm waters, protected reefs, along with an incredible variety of fish, are some of the reasons to treat yourself to this unique diving experience. After meeting on the pier for a briefing, you'll be transported to the PADI Dive School for a course outline, video, demonstration and hands-on practice in the water.
In a small group of maximum 4 participants, you'll learn how to use SCUBA equipment, practice some skills in shallow water, and do an actual dive, just minutes from the dive school on their house reef. At shallow depths, you'll find huge star coral and intricate leaf, scroll and black coral. See neon colored wrasse, bright stoplight parrot fish, trumpet fish and angel fish. You may also spot eel, shrimp, octopus, snails, lobster and more before returning to the school for a de-briefing and cruise back to the pier. The Discover SCUBA takes you one step further than snorkeling and is offered under the rules and principles of the Professional Association of Dive Instructors (PADI).
