Carib Inn is dedicated to divers.

Bruce Bowker’s Carib Inn is a resort dedicated to the needs and requirements of travelers who want a diving vacation. By focusing on diving, specialized personnel maintains quality throughout the resort. Although diving is featured at the Carib Inn, many guests come just to relax and enjoy Bonaire.

Excellent service combined with fair prices.

The Carib Inn also has the highest return guest percentage on Bonaire and one of the best in the Caribbean. This is achieved, not only through an honest value for dollar pricing of its rooms and diving but also excellent service through personal attention to all of its guests.

Staffed with the friendly and experienced crew, Carib Inn’s boats visit the best Bonaire dive sites.

The Carib Inn has only eleven units with no plans for expansion. Its current size is easily managed and easily maintained. This creates a unique niche in the resort business on Bonaire for the vacationer who wants a small dedicated resort. The Carib Inn’s guest list is made up of people who desire exactly what the Carib Inn offers.

You’ll find the same staff, year after year!

Generally, the dive resort business has a high turnover of workers. Most of the Carib Inn staff have been with the operation for over 20 years. From the maids who keep the rooms tidy to the instructors on the boats, guests come back to the same staff year after year. This is another reason why they feel at home.

Fantastic place to learn to dive! The instructors are amazing and patient. I'm so glad I learned to dive through the Carib Inn. They offer daily boat dives at 8:30 and 1:30. Whenever I come to Bonaire to dive I will definitely dive with the Carib more

Bruce Bowker is one of the pioneers of scuba diving on Bonaire. He has been involved with the STINAPA marine reserve and may other public projects on Bonaire. Bruce's dive shop is smaller in square footage than some of the other dive shops, but they carry excellent equipment at good prices. Bruce also repairs regulators and whenever my regulators need work, I take them to Bruce. The Carib Inn has several boats. Some friends chartered one of the smaller boats with a divemaster for a two tank dive up near Playa Franz. They were kind enough to invite me along and I had two great more

This is a diver's dive spot. The dive shop and the staff are incredibly knowledgeable, helpful, and fun. The Inn is accommodating and relaxing and the ocean is feet away. Be prepared to hit the grocery store up for fresh fruit and veggies and delicious cheeses and bread (and beer!) so you can spend as much time as possible in the more

This is a nice little seafront hotel that won't break the bank. Rooms are clean and comfortable. The staff is very friendly. There is a small dive shop/souvenir shop that is well stocked and has excellent prices. Rental equipment is the most well maintained of any dive shop that I have rented from. My wife and I have stayed and dived with Carib Inn since 2013, and will be customers for more

I can't recommend this place enough for scuba repair. We had a first stage that had been rebuilt last week that started honking on day three of our trip. Bruce had it field stripped, diagnosed, and reassembled in 10 minutes. Another shop wanted to rebuild all three stages of the reg set at $50 each. This is the one-stop shop for regulator repair in more
