There is a new opportunity for diving on Bonaire: www.purediver.com . For the curious and adventurous Purediver offers clinics in free diving. The web site has an amazing video of turtles and of course a free diver near Klein. Even if you don't care about free diving, this video is worth checking out the web site.

I'm doing this clinic today, in fact. Since I can't hold my breath very long, we will see how it goes.

Just a quick update on the freediving clinic. I did it while I was in Bonaire a few weeks ago and it was fun and informative. I would recommend it to anyone looking for something "new" to try while on the island.

Hi Liz: Thanks for your very informative posting on this. Sounds fascinating and that you had a great time. Does anyone ever refer to this as skindiving anymore? Seems like now it's referred to as "free diving". Not quite sure if there's any difference between the two but at any rate, enjoy the rest of your trip!

And, you can hear more while freediving. I was following a parrot fish that was munching on some coral (and making sand?). That was very cool.

I echo completely what Liz says above about the clinic. It was fun, professional and informative. I recommend it for anyone!

We participated in a clinic with Breno Lobo from Pure Diving on March 11. To us, a family of four (sons 8 and 10), who live on Bonaire, this was really a special experience. Breno makes you feel very comfortable in the water. The only goal is to enjoy the diving, not to dive the deepest or the longest. We were amazed by the feeling of the free diving and how easily we could do it. We felt happy and inspired afterwards and are going to do a next clinic with Breno some time soon. We recommend this clinic to everybody who's open to new experiences and is willing to try something different!
