Buddy Dive Resort Bonaire is pleased to announce the expansion of its fleet with a new boat. This weekend the boat was launched into open waters and navigated to the Buddy Dive dock.
My Buddy, as the new boat has been named, is a Newton 36’ (11 meters). The boat can easily accommodate 16 divers and crew on a 2-tank boat dive and offers a dedicated camera table, dry storage, fresh water shower and large rinse bucket.
Additionally, after a soft renovation the former Harbour Lady has been renamed to Reef Buddy and was launched back into the water together with My Buddy.

1. Dive Buddy – A custom made motor cat boat with room for 24 divers on a 3-tank boat dive
2. Bayena – A 30’ Newton with room for 12 divers
3. Red Tide – A 30’ Island Hopper offering room for 14 divers
4. Reef Buddy – A Newton 36’ offering room for 24 divers
