Dive Friends Bonaire opens new facility at Sand Dollar Resort

(DiverWire) On Friday, October 12th, Dive Friends @ Sand Dollar opened its doors that morning for the first time to provide quality services to guests of the popular Sand Dollar Condominiums. That afternoon, Dive Friends Bonaire hosted a party to celebrate the grand opening. Dive Friends crew mingled with Sand Dollar owners and staff and admired the attractive, custom-built structure. In keeping with Dive Friends Bonaire’s commitment to environmental conservation, the building was constructed from a combination of wood and recycled plastic “lumber.”

This new Dive Friends branch is located next door to Sand Dollar’s reception building and includes a small retail store, gear storage lockers, gear rental, rinse tanks and a tank pick-up and drop-off area for air and nitrox.

Sand Dollar guests with Dive Friends tanks can easily dive Bari Reef – the Sand Dollar house reef – via a sandy entry area at the south end of the property. Sand Dollar guests diving with Dive Friends have the benefit of being able to participate in their first day orientation briefing at any time, at any location, during normal business hours. With Yellow Submarine, Hamlet Oasis, Port Bonaire and Dive Inn, Dive Friends Bonaire provides Sand Dollar guests with four additional dive locations to make their shore diving as easy as possible.

Sand Dollar and Dive Friends Bonaire offer a seven (7) night Winter Season Ride to the Reef Package beginning as low as $793.00 per diver based upon four people sharing a two bedroom/two bathroom condominium, and it includes 6 days of unlimited tanks for shore diving, free Nitrox upgrades, truck rental, and government room tax. A variety of packagesare available that include boat dives and a choice of other accommodation types, such as studio, one and three bedrooms. Prices are valid from
December 22, 2012 to April 12, 2013.
