TOP DIVE SITE
Buddy’s Reef – Our house reef, Buddy’s Reef, is located in front of the resort. All facilities you might need such as benches, lockers, rinse tanks, etc, are present. Underwater you’ll not only find a variety of sponges, corals, fish, and critters, but also the nurseries of Reef Renewal Foundation Bonaire. This fun site is great during the day as well as at night!
