Join Nick Fazah for a tech oriented trip to Bonaire! While this isn’t a trip for getting tech certified there  will be plenty of opportunities to practice your existing technical diving skills under the supervision of an experienced tech diver/instructor. The group will be staying together in an ocean front house with direct water access and create dive plans together to maximize their experience.

About the Diving

Bonaire is the shore diving capital of the Caribbean with dozens of dive sites easily accessible. You can dive to your heart's content! Multiple trucks available will allow everyone to dive on the schedule they like best.

Bonaire's  underwater topography consists primarily of easy to navigate fringing reefs interspersed with occasional dramatic walls. The Southern end of the Island features a unique double-reef structure that features shallow and deep reefs and ‘lakes’ of sand where grouper, eagle rays, and young turtles are often encountered.

Highlights include awe-inspiring cathedral-like conditions at Salt Pier in the South, and gorgeous deep walls and mountainous star coral off Ledonia’s Leap and Karpata in the North. If you’re interested in macro life, the sites closer to town are excellent for critter hunting. At Bari Reef and Something Special, divers regularly encounter photogenic critters like frogfish, anemone shrimp, juvenile trunkfish, and spotted drums. The Island is also home to an abundant population of all of the major species of Caribbean Moray Eels from the massive Green, to the elegant Chain, and tiny Chestnut.

The group will be staying at an ocean front villa in Kralendijk.

This ocean front villa with 5 bedrooms and accommodation for 10 is great for families or small dive groups. Use this centrally located villa to explore all the island activities or stay close to home for the best of Bonaire snorkel and diving..

There are five bedrooms each with king/2 twins and a private bathroom. All windows are screened and secure to enjoy the ocean breezes, day and night, mosquito free. This oceanfront rental provides space where guests can gather or each can enjoy some privacy. The newly renovated (2017), open floor plan, kitchen and living area allows for great eat-in opportunities or gathering for evening chats. We are aiming to support the Bonaire eco-friendly philosophy with fully screened windows, water saving utilities and planned solar hot water. All rooms have A/C but it’s rarely needed with full screens and ocean breezes.

You’ll love the 360-degree panoramic view from the roof terrace or taking in the views from the seaside patio on the property. Private beach access is just steps away where you can enjoy all water activities. Divers may wish to visit the famous Cliff site which is about 100 feet from your beach. Don’t forget about the villa’s own rinse tank, secure dive room and outside shower.

You’ll also have access to a shared pool at the Hamlet Oasis Complex or a very short walk to visit the two nearby dive shops or a great oceanfront restaurants.
