2024 UPDATE Divi Flamingo Beach Resort & Casino & Divi Dive Bonaire
MEET THE DIVI DIVE TEAM
Stewards of the Sea Welcome to Divi Dive, where we consider ourselves more than just dive instructors; we’re stewards of the reefs and the oceans. Our dive philosophy is centered around education and conservation, and we aim to seamlessly incorporate these values into each and every dive. Deeply passionate about protecting the vibrant life and natural beauty of Bonaire’s colorful Calabas Reef, Divi Dive Operations Manager, Rick believes that “You can’t protect something you don’t love, and you can’t love something that you don’t understand.” The Divi Dive team’s dedication to educating divers about the reefs of Bonaire and their natural treasures enriches every dive, making it a profoundly rewarding experience for all who participate. With this philosophy, we ensure that divers leave Bonaire with a deep appreciation for the intricate, colorful underwater world they have the privilege to explore.

MAKING A SPLASH MEET DIVE OPERATIONS MANAGER RICK AGUILAR Divi Dive Bonaire is thrilled to introduce you to our Dive Operations Manager, Rick Aguilar. A dive instructor for nearly 20 years, Aguilar has plenty of experience working in the dive industry.
Hailing from the United States, Aguilar has lived on Bonaire three separate times and has been visiting the island since 1996. He originally got hooked on scuba diving over two decades ago after his first lesson, and just two years later, he became a dive professional. Now, he’s the passionate lead behind the stellar team at Divi Dive. “I love working with such an amazing and well-respected dive team,” said Aguilar. “Divi Dive Bonaire is a world-class dive operation with a great family atmosphere and a seasoned professional group of divers and instructors.” In addition to managing and leading the dive team, Aguilar also oversees the efforts to restore the resort’s famed Calabas house reef in partnership with Reef Renewal Foundation Bonaire (RRFB), a nonprofit organization working to protect and restore Bonaire’s coral reefs. “We’re excited to work in unison with the RRFB to continue to grow and improve our unique house reef and our one-of-a-kind dive operation.” Learn more about the Divi Dive Bonaire team by visiting www.dividive.com.
