With 20 years of experience of diving on the East Coast from shore. Bas Tol is the guide to use if you want to explore diving on the East Coast. With the East Coast being the more undived side from Bonaire the reefs and fishlife you find over there is not comparable with the West Coast. If you done it once you want to do it again!

Great diving with Bas, who knows the area and guides you to through the waves and current, towards wonderful diving spots.

We were fortunate to dive the wild east side of Bonaire with Bas. He is incredibly informative with such an amazing chill vibe. It is amazing to spend time with someone so kind and respectful to the environment. He knows I am fascinated with octopuses...More

Bas was awesome, hooked us up with Epic Tours to do a snorkel outting. Knowledgeable, friendly, funny: good times were had by all.
