Dive Friends Bonaire Celebrates Opening of Dive Friends at Sand Dollar

On Friday, October 12th, Dive Friends at Sand Dollar opened its doors for the first time to provide quality services to guests of the Sand Dollar Condominiums. That afternoon, Dive Friends Bonaire hosted a party to celebrate the grand opening. Dive Friends crew mingled with Sand Dollar owners and staff and admired the attractive, custom-built structure. In keeping with Dive Friends Bonaire’s commitment to environmental conservation, the building was constructed from a combination of wood and recycled plastic “lumber.” This new Dive Friends branch is located next door to Sand Dollar’s reception building and includes a small retail store, gear storage lockers, gear rental, rinse tanks, and a tank pick-up and drop-off area for air and nitrox.

Sand Dollar guests with Dive Friends tanks can easily dive Bari Reef--the Sand Dollar house reef--via a sandy entry area at the south end of the property. Sand Dollar guests diving with Dive Friends have the benefit of being able to participate in their first day orientation briefing at any time, at any location, during normal business hours. With Yellow Submarine, Hamlet Oasis, Port Bonaire and Dive Inn, Dive Friends Bonaire provides Sand Dollar guests with four additional dive locations to make their shore diving as easy as possible.

Sand Dollar and Dive Friends Bonaire offer a seven-night Winter Season Ride to the Reef Package beginning as low as $793.00 per diver based upon four people sharing a two-bedroom/two-bathroom condominium, and it includes 6 days of unlimited tanks for shore diving, free Nitrox upgrades, truck rental, and government room tax. A variety of packages are available that include boat dives and a choice of other accommodation types, such as studio, one- and three-bedrooms. Prices are valid from December 22, 2012 to April 12, 2013.

Sand Dollar Condominiums offer some of the most spacious and comfortable ocean front accommodations on the island. All units have air-conditioned bedrooms, full kitchens, dining and living areas, and roomy porches or balconies overlooking the Caribbean Sea. These reasonably priced condominiums have an abundance of amenities. Sand Dollar’s quality and flexibility make it an especially popular destination for couples, families, and groups seeking value and relaxation. For more information please call 800-288-4773, the Sand Dollar Florida Office at 954-453-5025, email Res@SandDollarBonaire.com or visit www.SandDollarBonaire.com.
