Having just returned from a wonderful but far too short visit to Bonaire I realize I need suggestions on a topic I've not seen discussed here. After nine trips we've decided that toting all our dive gear elsewhere is a waste of money and energy. Karen and I are not the rabid divers we once were and our time to dive is limited. In short we want to take our equipment to Bonaire, have it serviced in Bonaire, and leave it in Bonaire 'till the next visit. Your thoughts ?

My wife and I have has a 5 X 5 unit at Bonaire Self Storage for two years and can't recommend the place enough. Having the extra storage has let us buy all kinds of stuff for fun and also leave lots behind including all dive gear. When you start adding up airline luggage fees and dragging things back and forth it was a no-brainer for us. It is secure and the rates we felt very fair.

I appreciate your responses. We're cultivating several ideas thanks to you.

We have had no noticeable effects from heat or dust. First time we used the unit we put some stuff in plastic containers bought at Lucky's and also loosely wrap gear with heavy gage plastic. It seems that the amount of heat, moisture and dust is very minimal that actually gets in. Another thing I will add is that the security was changed to a wireless pass system so you just wave your card at the entrance to get in, only need keys for the lock you put on your door.

You can also rent a pallet from Rocargo. All the dive bags are stacked on it then they shrink-wrap and store it for you.
