Environmental Sustainability: A Commitment to Nature

Buddy Dive Resort in Bonaire is increasingly focusing on social and environmental sustainability. As a small island, Bonaire’s nature is both stunning underwater and topside, and Buddy Dive is dedicated to preserving it for future generations.

Reef Renewal Foundation Bonaire

Since 2012, Buddy Dive Resort has been a proud founding partner of Reef Renewal Foundation Bonaire. This non-profit organization actively restores Bonaire’s reefs through innovative techniques, education, and community engagement. Buddy Dive Resort hosts nurseries, transplantation sites, and contributes to the training of staff and volunteers.

The Bonaire Bond

In collaboration with the Tourism Corporation Bonaire, Buddy Dive encourages guests to sign the Bonaire Bond. This pledge signifies a commitment to sustainable use of ocean resources, respect for Bonaire’s culture, animals, and national parks. The Tourism Corporation Bonaire adopts a coral nursery tree from Reef Renewal Bonaire on behalf of those who sign the bond.

Caring for the Environment in Bonaire: Practical Steps

Buddy Dive Resort actively contributes to environmental preservation through various initiatives:

Water Purification System

Guests can enjoy tap water during their stay, thanks to the desalination process. This process extracts salt and minerals from ocean water using reverse osmosis.

Amazing boat diving and shore diving opportunities exist in Bonaire.

Reduce Water and Electricity Consumption

Guests are encouraged to minimize water and electricity wastage by turning off air-conditioning and lights when leaving the room. Towels can be reused, reducing the need for frequent laundering.


The resort and dive shop actively addresses the threat of invasive Lionfish by organizing Lionfish hunting trips and offering a Lionfish hunter specialty course. Guests can bring their catch to Blennies Restaurant for cleaning and cooking.


This resort is the second company on the island to use a compactor, efficiently processing and separating waste. Food leftovers are sent to local farmers, and the resort avoids using disposable plastic items.


Buddy Dive Resort adheres to the rules set by Stichting Nationale Parken (STINAPA), established to protect nature reserves in and around Bonaire. Guests are required to purchase a (digital) STINAPA Nature Tag before engaging in water activities.
