The best way to dive is with the Diva!!
She is the best to learn how to dive with or to go for extra dive courses or to do a discover dive!
The greatest thing is that she does not do it in huge groups like some places do and she manages her own time so you are not stuck with office hours from normal dive shops. She is very friendly and helpful. She explains everything very well and makes diving an unforgettable and fun experience. I did my open water course with her and with my family a discover scuba dive. I can't wait to do my advanced dive course with her!!!

Diving with Maria
Made 4 excellent dives with Maria. She knows all the diving sites and depending on the weather makes the right decision where to go to. Also supplies good diving equipment via VIP Diving. A real recommendation!

Diving with the dive Diva
It was great fun to have a guided dive with dive Diva Maria. She picked me up at my apartment and brought me home again. Great service! In between we had 2x2 tank dives on 4 different locations. She choose beautiful dive spots and was an excellent Guide. She took her underwater camera along and made some beautiful pictures from the underwater life on the reef and from me too. Because Bonaire was new to me she pointed out the other nice dive and snorkel spots too. Great memories! It was awesome!
