Captain Don's Habitat – Bonaire

I’ve been to Bonaire several times…do I have to go to the dive orientation again?

I’ve been to Bonaire several times…do I have to go to the dive orientation again?

Yes, unless you can show proof that you have attended a dive orientation within the current calendar year. Dive Orientation is mandatory in accordance with Bonaire National Marine Park (BNMP) regulations and is held daily at 9:00 a.m. One of our dive instructors will explain in detail the rules and safety procedures to allow you to dive safely around the reefs of Bonaire. After the orientation a Warm Up Dive is also required by the BNMP on our famous House Reef “La Machaca” for equipment checks, buoyancy control and establishing your comfort level. This Warm Up Dive is required prior to conducting any further diving activities on Bonaire, including boat dives. This dive is chargeable if not included in your Dive Package. If in doubt, please contact our Dive Manager before you make any dives.
