Buddy Dive Resort Bonaire | Bonaire lies in the southern Caribbean, just 50 miles north of Venezuela and 85 miles east of Aruba. This location is south of the hurricane belt which means ideal weather nearly every day. All the waters around Bonaire form part of the Bonaire National Marine Park. The south western coast is protected by the natural bay and Klein Bonaire, it offers great diving conditions with very little waves or currents. The rugged north eastern coast line, on the other hand, bears the burden of the trade winds and waves.
