We just stayed at Buddy's from May 9-16, as a new diver I didn't know what to expect, we did 13 dives while in Bonaire, 5 boats dives and the remaining 8 from Buddy's dock, which included 2 night dives. The entry was easy - stairs, lots of marine life right around the dock. The coral reef drop off was only a short swim from the dock. The reef was covered with lots of marine and plant life. Large tarpon surrounded us on the night dives. We dropped to 90 feet one day, not sure where the reef stopped. The visibility was great. We loved Buddy's and being new divers we stayed on their reef. It was very well marked and was in our comfort zone. Can't wait to go back to Bonaire and visit some of the other shore diving sites.
