Dive with us

Captain Don’s Habitat Dive Operation is a PADI Gold Palm Resort and an SDI Diving Facility. It is centrally located within the resort complex for easy access from all rooms. We have three 1-tank boat departures daily, at 8.30 AM, 11 AM and 2 PM, to over 50 moored sights on our custom-built dive boats. Each mooring buoy is limited to 1 boat so you’ll have the reef all to yourself. Diving Rates are priced per person per day unless otherwise noted.

Total Diving Freedom has always been the concept at Captain Don’s Habitat. Over 50 world-class dives are within a 15-minute boat ride. Diving Freedom means 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with no rush or anxiety. Take a giant stride off our divers-only pier “baby dock” and you’re already looking at clusters of starlet coral, surrounded by colorful wrasse and gobies, and the drop-off starts in 30 feet, only a few kicks away. Shore diving is a must at Captain Don’s Habitat and around the island of Bonaire rated as the top shore diving destination in the world! Following accepted safe diving practices, you can grab a tank and go….whenever you want!

Captain Don’s Habitat Dive Operation offers training from the following training agencies…PADI, TDI, and SDI and accepts all Universal Referrals for final completion of training and is equipped to handle all of your certification needs including Rebreathers and Tri-Mix. Choose from over 20 specialty courses! Technical Diving Services is conveniently based out of our dive operation with its own technical diving dedicated classroom.

All needed equipment is available for rental. PLEASE NOTE WE CARRY INT VALVE ONLY. DIN ADAPTERS NEED TO BE BE PART OF YOUR OWN GEAR OR CAN BE PURCHASED IN THE STORE. the Vista Blue Store also has those last-minute items you may have forgotten, and spare parts like mask straps hoses, defog, and much more.

Habitat is neither pretentious nor regimented. Our multilingual, multicultural, professional staff are there to teach, assist, or advise in a relaxed and friendly manner. Whether you’ve been diving for years or are just starting out, Captain Don's Habitat diving will keep you happy.

Owing to logistical and liability challenges, Habitat is unable to accommodate disabled or wheelchair divers. Regrettably, we are unable to fulfill any reservations for divers with these specific requirements.

Bonaire National Marine Park

All the beautiful waters around Bonaire are designated as a Marine Park. The fact that anchoring, spearfishing, touching the corals, and removing anything from the reef is prohibited helps us keep our reefs healthy for you to enjoy.

The Stinapa Bonaire Tag is valid for all divers, snorkelers, and water sport enthusiasts. It costs $40.- per calendar year.

The Bonaire National Marine Park requires Bonaire Dive Operators to provide a brief orientation to anyone who has not been to Bonaire within the same calendar year before you are allowed to dive. Ashore warm-up dive on our house reef is also required by the Bonaire National Marine Park prior to any other diving. Habitat conducts this orientation at 9:00 a.m. daily. No diving is permitted without first attending this orientation. Our packages are structured as such that there is no diving included on the day of arrival. There is no diving allowed on the day of your departure.
