The airline lost our luggage so we ended up at VIP diving to rent gear until our stuff showed up. The gear is nice and well maintained and the staff was really helpful, friendly and full of good information. I highly recommend this shop.

Discovered Scuba Diving with Matthew. He was an excellent instructor. Very knowledgeable, patient, and friendly. Everything we needed was provided and the water is so clear in Bonaire. Would love to go again.
