  • Buddy Dive Resort is attending virtual DEMA 2020

    Bonaire, September 2020 – Being present at the DEMA shows for years and years to get in touch with old and new friends, the cancelation of DEMA 2020 was a big disappointment. All the more happy we were, when the possibility of exhibiting on Online DEMA occurred.

    Especially in these challenging times, we feel the need to stay  in touch  with our partners, guests and potential new guests. We are looking forward to have a chat with you to talk about future trips to Bonaire, what the situation is like on Bonaire right now but most of all about how to spoil your groups/guests with the best Bonaire has to offer, our great DEMA special and all the improvements we’ve made in the last months. For example the complete renovation and improvement of Blennies restaurant, our new Blennies theme nights and the extension of our pier.

    Make sure to schedule an appointment with one of your Buddies or just “drop by” to chat with us. We will be there and can’t wait to see you!
