Dive Diva Bonaire - we speak these languages

what clients say

"Go with the Flow" I recently learned is ancient sea turtle wisdom. It is also Maria Varela Put's philosophy. Maria designed a great day for my Husband's 65th birthday. I found her company online. We emailed back and forth for a couple of months planning our cruise port visit to Bonaire.
Our personal customized day included 2 shore dives to the reef that surrounds the island and is a sanctuary to protect the coral and sea life. In between dives we had a private tour of Bonaire. Maria truly loves the island and is involved in the ecological. environmental protection programs that make it such a special, unique place.
"No worries" were the reassuring words she used when we experienced a few problems. The first was a broken fin strap and on a Sunday all the shops are closed. The loan of her friends fins was the solution. The second was embarrassing and required much more effort on Maria's part. We had rented a Go Pro on the ship and left in it the Dive Diva truck. Panicked, we contacted the Crown Princess personnel who agreed that if Maria could bring it to the cruise line agent on 11/20 it would be taken care of. She agreed to go out of her way to save us the cost of a Go Pro. We are so appreciative.
As part of our plan, Maria made reservations at a restaurant where we ended our visit with a sunset supper.
Although Diva is in the company name, Maria is down to earth, knowledgeable, friendly, caring and a very safety conscious educator.
If you are looking for a private dive guide who will customize you experience on Bonaire, we recommend Dive Diva. You will have "no worries" with this Diva.

Maria guided my twelve year old son through the PADI introduction to scuba course, and the three of us took two nice 40-minute dives to depths of about 30-35 feet. Maria was very patient with him and stayed close enough to help control his buoyancy. Between dives, we picked up my wife and younger son, and Maria made sure that the dive site for the second dive would also be a good spot for them to snorkel.

After the dives, Maria took us for a nice tour of the island. She was knowledgeable about all of the nature and history of the island.

I will not hesitate to book with Maria again upon a return to Bonaire.

Great job

Maria is the best dive guide we’ve ever had. Not just that. She’s not just a dive guide, she is also snorkelling guide, tourist guide, Bonaire guide. She is a friend you want to have when coming in to a new place. Her personal attitude, her patient and her enthusiasm is amazing. Not just a dive center, where you are one of many. When you are beginner diver or something between, want to know more than just good dive spots, want to see more of Bonaire than just underwater life, she is the one you need! Although she doesn’t have her own store, everything is well prepared and organized. It fits your style and needs. Because of her, our stay on Bonaire was unforgettable. Thank you Maria again for everything. For us, common dive center can hardly compete to you. Keep your way, it’s the right way!
