Visit Bonaire: Welcome to Diver’s Paradise

In January 2017 Aquatic Adventures will visit Bonaire for the first time in several years. Having been to Bonaire and its close neighbor Curacao many times, I was asked by the staff to write a blog to share a few thoughts about this amazing little island.

Geography and Weather

Bonaire is one of three islands off the northern coast of Venezuela known as the ABC islands. Moving from west to east, the ABCs include Aruba, Curacao, and Bonaire. Because these islands are outside of the hurricane belt, they are ideal destinations to visit as the weather remains consistently warm and dry all year long.

Sam Heine is new to diving, but he’s quickly grown to love the sport. Beginning with his Open Water Diver certification last June, he’s earned eight PADI certifications and become a Divemaster candidate in the year he’s been diving.

Heine, a student at UW-Milwaukee, began diving when he needed a recreation class to help boost his GPA. He chose Skin & Scuba, the beginning scuba course Aquatic Adventures offers through UWM. “It was just awesome. I took the Advanced (Open Water Diver course) because I needed to get out again. The next thing you know, I’m an addict.”

A Day in the Life of a Diver : Becoming a Master Scuba Diver Trainer Part 3

We arrived at the store several hours before the Instructor Exam (IE) so that the Sea Experience staff could go through our paper work and do a gear check. After ensuring all of our IE paperwork was completed and all our gear was loaded up, we packed up and drove out to Nova University where our test and presentations would take place.

We entered in the classroom and the examiner informed us on how the IE would play out. Day One would be pool demonstrations and skills, followed by the exams in the afternoon. After the exams, we would give our knowledge review presentations. Day Two would be at Tiger Tail Lake. Any testing that needed to be retaken would be accomplished before the open water presentations on Day Two.
