The Marriott Courtyard hotel on Bonaire is partnering with the island’s largest independent dive shop chain.
Dive Friends Bonaire‘s sixth location is now open in a building adjacent to the Courtyard, and includes retail space, gear storage, boat docks with canal access, and drive-through air fills.
Hotel guests have easy access to the shop via an outdoor walkway. The Marriott Courtyard plans to create dive and stay packages, simplifying the booking process and making diving the waters off the island more accessible to thousands of Marriott customers.
The hotel is centrally located, with easy access from the airport. Shopping, beaches, and even groceries are within walking distance, but the hotel can help you arrange transportation rentals, ranging from bicycles to golf carts to pickup trucks for exploring the island’s northern and southern ends, including almost 200 shore diving spots.
Dive Friends Bonaire has five additional locations stretching up and down the business districts of the islands, making swapping tanks easy, regardless of your choice of dive sites. In addition to tank and gear rentals, the shops offer dive education, from Discover Scuba through to dive professional development courses. Boat dives are offered daily and specialty options, like guided night dives are easily arranged.
