We made a morning trip. This means going to their pier at 07h45. It is very well and proffessionally organised. They arrange the air. Assembling the sets on the pier. Briefing on the boat (a large RIB) and one for every dive. The boat brings the divers through the surf. Easy entry into the water. Easy exit (part of the... More

Countless turtles Diving from a rib and getting back in the rib through easy stairs is great after seeing Turtle City, which you can only see in 3 divespots in the world, this is the best. You will see turtles everywhere and your memorycard runs overtime. Eagle- and sting rays Funchi dive site with passing eagle- and sting rays is... More

Fred, Bob and Jasmine were fantastic. It was a windy, rough day, so their focus on safety was extremely important. Jasmine was very thorough in her pre-dive debrief. They are also very friendly and helpful people. The dive itself? AWESOME. Funjis reef. 20+ turtles, eagle ray and the highlight, a manta ray. The only downside, was that the wind continued... More

Great diving on the east side of Bonaire where you see many turtles and rays just outside of Lac bay. This diving is a little challenging because it is from a large pontoon boat (but with ladder entry) in open ocean but dives are not deep -40-50 ft. The staff is great- educational, safe and very professional. Always felt I... More

Spent 2 weeks in Bonaire. 1/st week, went on the "wild side" dive with this outfit. Had a great experience. Saw eagle rays in groups, ocean triggerfish, & turtles. Lots and lots of turtles. Staff very very very very safety conscious. Boat was setup great. Enjoyed it so much I went again the second week. You gotta do this!!!

Fred and his team, including divermaster Kim, provide a 5-star service, from beginning to end, with the best dive briefing we've ever experienced!! (I've done >300 dives!) Their dive sites are also spectacular. Yes, they're more difficult to get to than a "regular" boat dive, and the seas can be quite rough, but they've got the best equipment and processes... More

This is a must dive experience for anyone coming to Bonaire. Be able to do comfortably an hour dive. Turtle City was spectacular and I don't want to say much other than you will see lots or copious amounts of turtles. This dive outfit was very professional and a pleasure to dive with. My husband and I were the only... More

I did 2 dives with Kim and Fred this week and it was a great experience. They are well organized, pay great attention to safety, and make the dives fun. We probably saw over 30 turtles on the second dive. Diving from their boat is easy and well set up. If you like to see the bigger marine life while... More
