Reviews from other divers

The best dive of my life!
Diving with Eric is an absolute must! He knows these dive sites like the back of his hand, resulting in relaxed and stress-free diving. We did two shore dives with him on the east coast and will definitely contact him again next time we are in Bonaire. Safety comes first and you can tell he has a passion for diving! I have completed over 100 dives in the Caribbean and can honestly say my dive today was the best dive of my life.
Definitely recommend Eric to our diving guests!
We've done many dives on Bonaire ourselves, but for some dive sites you need an experienced guide. Eric took us to the Lighthouse divesite. Excellent briefing to prepare us for a bit of challenging entry/exit and what we might expect during the dive. The dive was amazing, and Eric was always on the ball pointing us to stingrays, green moray eel, turtles and guiding us along the beautiful soft coral. Patient, supportive, informative and a knowledgeable guide is what you get when diving with Gone Diving. 
Casa Mantana Bonaire
Learning how to dive with Eric was amazing!
He’s a super relaxed guy with a lot of humor. But when it comes to become a safe diver, he’s very serious. He showed me several very nice spots to dive, and knows where to find special fishes.
Also he was willing to tell me a lot about Bonaire, was very patient with me when I was nervous to get under water, and gave me a lot of confidence about being a safe and good diver.

STINAPA Nature Fee

Stichting Nationale Parken Bonaire (STINAPA) was founded in 1962. STINAPA is the organization that manages Bonaire’s nature parks on behalf of the Bonairian government.
Something unique about Bonaire’s nature parks is that they are managed and maintained almost completely with funding and support from its visitors. Therefore, your contribution really makes a difference as it enables us to protect Bonaire’s valuable and vulnerable nature parks.

Nice to meet you!

My first dive in 1991 was on the Great Barrier reef in Australia. In 2005 I got certified for the PADI Open Water and that moment diving changed my life. In 2013 I became a PADI Open Water Instructor. I never forget my first certified student. What a great moment it was! Ten years ago I moved to Bonaire (Shore Dive Capital of the World) and start working as a full time Dive Instructor.

Today I’m a PADI Master Instructor and I have certified almost 600 PADI divers and logged more than 1900 dives on Bonaire. You find me in the water when I work and on my days off. On these days I go diving with friends and take them to special dive sites like Cai, Baby Beach, Lighthouse, Red Slave and Tailor made. Or we go to a regular one which is also beautiful to see. I am looking forward to guide you and show you the surprising and magical reefs of Bonaire.
