Great Adventures Bonaire is a PADI 5-Star Resort featuring un-crowded boats, personalized service and professional, friendly and multilingual staff.
We are situated in the beautiful resort of Harbour Village Beach Club on Bonaire.
Daily boat dives, dive instruction for all levels including advanced certification through to Assistant Instructor, specialties, equipment rental and SASY for kids are all offered. The dive shop is located along the beach, just steps from the rooms and suites. With its dive pier, lounge chairs, beach gazebo and shower, it offers another peaceful area to sunbathe and relax along the beach. Rinse tanks, a retail store, dive lockers, large air-conditioned classroom, and complimentary Kayak rentals for Club guests round out the dive amenities. Just off-shore from the Club's private beach is a dive wreck, the 60-foot “Our Confidence”, accessible on your very first dive. Another popular dive site, "Something Special", is also a short swim from shore.
Bonaire diving packages are available for both non-certified (resort scuba experience) and certified divers (one boat dive per day and unlimited shore diving). In addition, the Bonaire diving packages include a seven-night stay in our luxurious rooms or suites, a full American breakfast, and unlimited use of the fitness center, tennis courts, sun fish and kayaks.
Bonaire, named the Top Dive Destination 9 years in a row, is home to 86 well-defined dive sites. Over 30 years of environmental protection laws have earned Bonaire diving locations a reputation as some of the most beautifully preserved marine life in the world. In 2008, Bonaire was designated by the National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) as having "arguably the most pristine coral reef environment in the Caribbean." A separate official study also found that Bonaire is inhabited by more species of fish than any other Caribbean diving location. Abundant underwater life includes more than 300 species of tropical fish and over 120 different types of coral. Due to Bonaire's leeward location outside of the hurricane belt, and its consistently pleasant climate, crystal clear visibility prevails at any depth, allowing guests of Bonaire dive hotels a perfect view of the underwater life.
