Press Release

September 24 – October 1, 2022, Buddy Dive Resort turned into a tec diving paradise once again! The 11th edition of Bonaire TeK was one to remember.


Buddy Dive Resort, Bonaire’s leading dive hotel is known for its personable staff, spacious
accommodations and a dive operation that has something for every diver. Today, the full-service resort houses spacious studios, one, two- and three-bedroom apartments, a full-service dive center, activity desk, two swimming pools, two restaurants, pool bar, vehicle rentals, and the famous drive-thru air and Nitrox fill station. Built with active people in mind, Buddy Dive Resort knows exactly what is needed to make guests comfortable both during their busy day of diving and exploring and during relaxing on the resort. Over the last few years, Buddy Dive Resort was recognized as one of the World’s Best Dive Resorts & Operations in Scuba Diving magazine’s Reader's Choice Awards: Top 100 Gold List.

During the most significant technical diving event in the Caribbean, our guests enjoyed demos and tryouts with the newest equipment, presentations from renowned names in the industry, and lots of exciting and fun tec dives. Buddy Dive welcomed guest speakers and presenters from DAN, Shearwater, DiveRite, FATHOM dive systems and Sonardyne.

Bonaire TeK thrives to bring together tec divers from all over the world, creating a community and initiating new partnerships. This year, Sonardyne, Shearwater and the Dutch Navy joined forces to test in-water dive tracking capabilities.

Bonaire TeK is a great platform for suppliers and retailers to show the best they have got to offer. Informing about their products firsthand and letting guests try their newest gear and equipment.

Our longtime partner and supplier of (part of) our rental and staff gear, DiveRite, was there showcasing their latest gear and offering demos with their DiveRite O2ptima CCR.

Our divers got to go out by boat as well as from shore to experience some amazing deep dives both on the North West corner of Klein Bonaire and on the deep wreck of “The Windjammer”.

In the evening guests gathered for interesting presentations such as:

  • The tools of exploration by Charles Roberson;
  • The basics of cave diving by Jared Hires
  • Innovations in electronic communication protocols in diving by Gabriel Pineda from Shearwater and James van Rossum/John D. Houlder both from Sonardyne
