Due to the constant trade-wind, the East Coast of Bonaire is known as the wild side of the island. Besides that, because the coral is still untouched, the East Coast is also famous for its beautiful dive sites.
East coast shore diving
Because we, at VIP Diving, typically only dive from shore, we are very dependent on the weather when planning an east coast dive. When both the wind and the sea are calm, we might be lucky, though we can never guarantee a shore dive trip to the east coast in advance. The low wind period is from August to October and the chances we can go out for an east coast trip are much higher in those months.
East coast boat diving
For boat diving on the East Coast, we partner with Bonaire East Coast Diving. They typically offer two dives in the morning and one dive in the afternoon. A Divemaster from Bonaire East Coast Diving, who is very familiar with the reefs, will join you on these dives. However, if you prefer to dive with your own VIP Dive Butler, we can also accompany you on these dives as well. Availability of the boat of Bonaire East Coast Diving depends on the number of divers, the weather and the sea conditions.
