Don’t worry, you don’t have to be an advanced diver to start this course. The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course is a great course to advance your diving skills.
The PADI Advanced Open Water Diver Course helps you build confidence and expand your scuba skills through 5 different Adventure Dives, all with a specific learning objective on Bonaire. You try out different specialties while gaining experience under the supervision of your professional instructor. For each dive, you will read a chapter in your manual and complete a brief knowledge review.
Both the Deep dive and Navigation dive are required. You can choose the other three dives based on your experience, personal interests, and possibilities of Bonaire. For example, you can choose a Wreck dive, Night dive, Fish ID dive, or Peak Performance Buoyancy, dive.
Plan for 2 days for the course plus some self-study time. We only teach in small groups with a maximum of 4 divers per group. This helps to ensure that you get the personal attention you need to successfully finish the course while enjoying your dives at the same time.

“I have dove with VIP Diving on several vacations to Bonaire over the past few years and all experiences have been flawless. I have participated on recreational dives, as well as earning my Advanced Open Water Certification. VIP is not just a name, they actively strive to make each and every customer feel like a VIP. Not only have I always felt like I was receiving the full attention of the staff; but every interaction that I witnessed with other customers, appeared to be everything I would expect and more.
Some of the highlights that I remember from my experience was: dives being limited to 4 customers per trip!”
