Diver City Community April News
Our group trip to Bonaire had 18 divers doing over 600 dives in 14 days, and it was amazing. We enjoyed diving from the boats at Divi dive, exploring the island, and spending the evenings relaxing at the BBQ, at Happy Hour, or with yet another night dive. It was a life changing trip for the 4 divers who experienced their first ocean dives, those who were certified in Open Water, Advanced, Deep and Night diver certifications, and everyone who saw their first seahorse, frogfish or baby drum* (* insert any of the amazing critters we saw here). We made friendships for life, and reinforced some that had already started.
The only question that remains is….when can we do it again!?
