Hi SD Friends, I did my first SingleDivers trip to Bonaire a few years ago and was so impressed with everything. Traveling alone and diving with people you don't know can be a dicey proposition. With SingleDivers I feel so much safer. Kamala only uses dive operators she knows to be good. And because she books groups year after year, she gets the best the resort has to offer. Most of the divers are very experienced and any new divers get lots of help and good advice from Kamala and the group. If you want a single room you can usually get one. If you want a roommate to save expenses your Roomie is carefully chosen. Your dive buddy is aldo carefully chosen to matc your air consumption and diving experience and style. My roomies and dive buddies have all been perfect for me. As a solo traveler and diver, I feel safest on my SingleDiver trips because of all of these things. And if something goes wrong, I am secure in the knowledge that Kamala will be a rabid advocate for me, making sure that I get taken care of if I am injured or ill. The trips are really great fun and I try to make as many of them as I can. Kamala amazes me every trip with her apparently boundless energy and enthusiasm. She make everything run smoothly and still makes every dive.

Hi SD Friends,
I came into this process as a new diver (with only 4 dives in a lake) , traveling alone and meeting up with 16 other people I had never met - in Bonaire. Turns out ..... Great Decision!!!!! It would be an understatement to say that this trip was one of the most memorable experiences of my life. Being a scuba diver is a gift and having SingleDivers as a resource is the icing on the cake!!!! Kamala was thoughtful, knowledgable, responsive and resourceful. She took care of every detail! The boat crew (Endro and Carlos) were exceptional. The staff at the Divi always met you with a smile! Food was great, weather was perfect, water was ideal. Shore dive or Boat dive... it is ALL good!!!! As for the strangers I met upon arrival .....The SD people on the trip with me ....They were strangers that I now call friends because they each left a little footprint on my heart that I will carry with me always. If you are a new diver, experienced diver or somewhere in the middle.... spread the word about SD.com because this group/these trips could leave a footprint on your heart too and give you memories to last a lifetime. xo

Hi to all SD members! I just recently went on the Bonaire trip this past week and have to say it was a wonderful experience. Like most of us on this trip it was my first experience with SD. Sooo, I certainly didn't know what to expect when I arrived.
I must say that Kamala truly makes these dive trips a time to remember. Everything that goes on behind the scenes so you as the diver does not have to deal with it is absolutely amazing. I cant thank the SD group enough for that.
In regards to the great group of people that was on the trip...It amazes me that when 17 strangers come together on a dive vacation and all are so ready to help one another. It just lends itself to the great dive community that has been assembled. We had a wide range of experience divers on this trip and you would never know it because everyone was looking and helping out where they could.
The boat crew was wonderful. Very good dive masters that took care of us all. The staff at the Divi Resort was also outstanding.
Last but certainly not least the new friends that I made on the trip I cant say enough about. I absolutely look forward to joining these people on another trip. Along with the long lasting friend ships that have been made.
GREAT JOB KAMALA!! You should be proud!!

Hi! I am a new diver and I can't say enough about how wonderfully Kamala organized the Bonaire trip for both safety and fun. The good news is there is plenty to see at less than 60 feet and often no need to even think about going deeper.
With 3 boat dives a day there were plenty of excellent opportunities to see many great fish on the reefs including an incredible moray eel ribboning his way along the coral beside us...truly amazing.
I was initially concerned about going on a diving trip by myself and decided to give the group a try. I was welcomed into the group - both as an older single female and as a new diver. I got the help I needed when I needed it.
Out of the water, I had a great time at lunch, dinner, and daily happy hours with the other divers. There were 3 new divers and 14 very experienced divers across 4 decades in age, yet the group somehow gelled to have a wonderful dive vacation.
I am planning my next trip with singledivers.com now!

Hi!!! I'm Ksue but you can call me Karen.
I have a love for the water, on top and underneath. I'm always in awe being surrounded by beauty, peace, and God's gift that nourishes my soul. I get excited about little things. I can't dive anymore as I had a brain aneurysm in May 2011 - what I refer to as a "Brain Fart". It doesn't stop me from going on these trips. Through Single Divers - I have been to Dominica (May 2016) and Little Cayman (September 2016). I'll be going to Roatan with Single Divers in July 2017!
The person that inspires me and I admire is Kamala!!! She's fun, caring, passionate about Single Divers and life in the water!!! We are blessed to have her and Single Divers.
