Drift Diver Course
Drift diving allows a diver to travel over a large area without expending much energy. You simply get neutrally buoyant and enjoy the dive as the scenery moves past you. The SDI Drift Diver Course covers the “how-to’s” of drift diving from, how to enter and exit drifts, what to do if you get caught in a drift and wish to get out, how to get out of the drift to observe something special, and much more. The course will also introduce you to the various types of drift currents you may be diving in.

Bonaire is known as “Diver’s Paradise” for the huge variety of marine life as well as the nearly 100 dive sites situated around the island. The reef around Bonaire has been designated as a marine park since 1979 and you will find no better diving value in the Caribbean.
Our package price includes your choice of one- or two-bedroom apartments at Captain Don’s Habitat (or call for pricing on a Junior Deluxe Suite!). Each unit includes bedrooms with private baths, air conditioning and a large covered patio area. With a fully equipped kitchen, you can eat in (there are several nice grocery stores nearby) or dine out at any one of the great restaurants on the island.
We have 12 boat dives and unlimited shore diving; all with Nitrox included! Take a quick dive right off the resort or explore the island with your rental car and try some of the diverse marked dive sights including the Hilma Hooker wreck easily accessible from shore.
