Overview

Bonaire East Coast Diving is a specialized dive operation on the famous east side of Bonaire and we’ll be happy to share it with you. We’ll take you out for a different – better! – dive experience. Expect to see the most exciting creatures Bonaire has to offer, which you can hardly find on the leeward side of the island. Spotted eagle rays, stingrays, sharks, green moray eels, and lots of turtles are no exception on the east coast!

East coast diving is by far the best diving on the island. Don't leave the island without doing it. West coast diving is nice for small fish but gets boring after a few dives. East coast we saw Ray's, moray, lobster, tarpen and tons of...More

Exceptionally healthy reef, big waves, big turtles, big rays, beautiful ocean life. Very professional, engaging, and safe crew. 3 weeks of diving on the island and this was definitely one of the highlights. One of those locations that really sticks in your dive memories.

The amazing crew gave top-notch dive briefings and were eagle-eye spotters in the water. The boat is ideal for the conditions. The two sites we went to are like no other Bonaire dive site. Impeccably lush reefs of huge soft and hard corals that is...More

Most people are going to Bonaire for the shore diving but the windward East Coast is completely different and an awesome experience. The topography underwater is totally different and you’ll see a lot more large stuff like eagle rays and lots of turtles. These guys...More

Had a large group so had rented a house - we always rent a truck so have freedom to explore and is much easier. Will need it to get over to east coast if ur staying in main part of town.
