This trip is now open How does this resort differ from Buddy Dive Resort?

 

The resort and dive ops are very different.

 

  • Shore diving is off house reef so no shared trucks and no gas bill at the end of the week at about $4 per gal or more (some people do not see this as an advantage but without knowing the other people sharing your truck it is much harder to dive like this.)
  • 3 boat dives a day for Divi vs 1 per day in the standard Buddy Dive pkg offers
  • Fully remodeled resort for Divi (not sure when Buddy was updated last but the old Lion's Den was not in as good of condition as Buddy Dive proper was)
  • Rooms are all hotel style meaning 2 per room with private balconies or private patios or studio style with private patios with ensuite kitchens and are not like many of the rooms at Buddy which are two rooms and a common area. (So you only have one roommate to deal with and not 1 roommate and 2 suitemates)
  • Two restaurants on property with a TON more merely a short walk to town (Buddy has 2 or 3 maybe 4 restaurants within easy walking distance)
  • Casino on site at Divi ...none at Buddy
  • At Divi you visit all the cool shorediving sites by boat vs truck so don't have to worry if someone is good at navigation and can get you back to the truck or not

 

I am sure there are many other differences ...pro and con. We have had many Buddy Dive enthusiasts love Divi and Divi is more suited for our groups.

KLM but they are hard to fly on here in the US. The primary DIRECT flights are as you have listed. You can go via Curacao on AA and then take a fright via Insel Air or another Caribbean airline to Bonaire.

 

And Insel Air flies from the US to Bonaire directly.

Yahoo!!! Booked and ready to go!!! Flying from DFW to Curacao. Will spend 2 nights there, then fly to Bonaire. Was going to do a day trip to Angel Falls, but to do the falls right, need to spend 3 days there. Bonaire is really cool!

Hello Claudia, we saw your post was in the topic for the Bonaire February 2107 topic so we have moved your post here to our upcoming Bonaire March 2108 topic. This is the SAVE THE DATES topic where those interested in attending request to be notified when the trip opens for booking. We have added you to that list so when the trip opens you will be notified directly by Private Message (PM) so be sure to renew your Premier Member subscription when it is due in August! :diver:

I signed up and paid last night, but I didn't see how to get the $100 discount for booking and paying prior to June 5th.  I'm excited to finally be able to join you on a trip.  The pics of Dominica look fabulous, but I have a standing appointment every May in Cozumel, so couldn't go on that one.

We are really happy you can join us. The codes are under the purple headings...notably the one that says discounts and rebates. I am guessing you did not see this info nor get a chance to read it???  If not please go back as follows and read all the trip details...they will be useful in booking your air etc.

 

  • www.SingleDivers.com
  • Trips
  • Upcoming Trips
  • Bonaire
  • Scroll down under the picture to the pricing matrix table and then under that are all the detail headers i..e purple with titles like WHAT'S INCLUDED, OPTIONS & EXTRAS, DISCOUNTS & REBATES, TRAVEL, etc.
  • Click on the title name and read the details contained inside

 

Discounts must be taken at time of booking as it costs the club 3x the discount amount to have someone try and manually do it after the fact. The only option we may have is to cancel the entire order and let you rebook again. That is a mess in and of itself. I will have to check to see if there are any other options. I am so sorry you did not see the information needed for the discount before hand. I am now also worried you have not gotten valuable information that we need you to have read about your upcoming trip. kamala

Thank you! Maybe I can tap into your experience to help people sign up easier or ensure they see the trip detail tabs etc. We hate for members to miss out on early booking discounts. Email me at kamala@singledivers.com if you can help. :thankyou:
