Experience Bonaire and Buddy Dive Resort. Buddy’s is an unhurried, unspoiled and natural paradise that offers spectacular sunsets, gentle breezes and crystal clear turquoise waters. Buddy's is a resort where you can dive twenty four/seven, take part in a multitude of activities or just sit back, relax and enjoy the atmosphere.


Buddy Dive is known for its casual atmosphere, personable staff, spacious accommodations and a dive operation that has it all: comfortable boats, complete rental, retail center, exceptional staff, and a unique "Drive Thru" with air/nitrox fill station. No matter which apartment you relax in, you're never further than a giant stride away from their popular and lively house reef which is perfect for diving and snorkeling, day and night.


Climb into the rental truck you receive automatically with your Drive & Dive Package, and take advantage of the 60 dive sites, accessible from the shoreline of Bonaire or tour the island with a guide on one of many excursions available to you through the Activity Center.


Divers, snorkelers, adventurers and leisure travelers will feel equally at home at Buddy Dive. You will want to save plenty of time to relax in a hammock, lounge by one of our three pools, simply catch some rays or saunter on down to the pool bar for a cocktail before sampling some of the local specialties.


Enjoy true oceanfront dining in the Lions Den Restaurant or one of the beach theme nights.

The resort is complete with four modern buildings housing spacious one, two and three bedroom apartments, a full service dive center, activity desk, three swimming pools, restaurant, pool bar, vehicle rentals and Nitrox fill station.  Built with active people in mind, Buddy's knows exactly what is needed to make guests comfortable during their busy day of diving and exploring, and after.
