Shore Diver

1 Day

2 Dives

Walk right in

A shore dive is any dive where you enter the water from the land rather than a boat. Booking a vacation to one of the best shore diving destinations like Bonaire is a perfect way to explore local dive sites and marine life at a relaxing pace that suits your schedule and really get to know our little island.

Experience the freedom of shore diving

Bonaire is famous for his excellent shore diving. But many divers only have been diving from boats. Starting your dive from shore is something completely different. That’s why VIP Diving developed the PADI Distinctive Specialty ‘Shore Diver’.

The island of Bonaire flaunts over 80 dive sites, most of which can be explored straight from the beach. Many are signposted from land and you’ll also be surrounded by over 470 fish species, like angelfish, tarpon, octopuses, moray eels, crustaceans, and turtles. No wonder this is the ‘shore diving capital of the world’! You’ll find most of Bonaire’s must-dive sites along the leeward coast, from the famous Hilma Hooker shipwreck to the staggering drop-offs and elkhorn corals of Karpata
