Bonaire Is Launching a New Dive Week
It’s a natural fit — one of the world’s greatest diving destinations and a weeklong celebration of scuba.
That’s the plan for the first-ever Bonaire Dive Week, which will be held this September in partnership with PADI.
Bonaire Dive Week will ru from Sept. 23-30 and include “ endless adventure for amateur and experienced scuba divers alike,” according to Tourism Corporation Bonaire.
The week will be headquartered at the Buddy Dive Resort, where participants can enjoy unlimited shore dives as part of a special package.
The week will include guided dives around Bonaire’s top dive sites, night dives, post-dive festivities and presentations from PADI staff and other speakers.
“We are excited to host the first edition of Bonaire Dive Week in collaboration with PADI for a full seven days of diving, activities and exploring our island,” said Miles Mercera, CEO of Tourism Corporation Bonaire. “Our precious nature and protected waters have become a playground for adventure lovers and this event will highlight our eco-efforts to sustain this beautiful environment and the diverse marine-life that lives here for generations to come. In collaboration with our partners, we are proud to open the doors and shores of Bonaire to bring divers together from all over the world for a truly special week.”
It’s part of a growing events strategy for the island, one that includes the new Yoga and Wellness Week and the popular Bonaire Rum Week.
