MAKING A SPLASH NEW DIVE OPERATIONS MANAGER RICK AGUILAR Divi Dive Bonaire is thrilled to welcome a fresh face to the team! Say hello to our new Dive Operations Manager, Rick Aguilar. A diver for nearly 20 years, Aguilar also has plenty of experience working in the dive industry.

Hailing from 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. Aguilar says he can’t wait to start his new adventure at Divi Dive Bonaire. “I’m looking forward to 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 I feel my background and experience are well aligned with the needs of the operation.” In addition to managing the dive operation and leading the dive team, Aguilar will also oversee 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. “At Divi Flamingo Beach Resort & Casino and Divi Dive Bonaire, we’re dedicated to nourishing our pristine coral reefs and conserving our natural resources,” said Celine Van Meer, Divi Flamingo’s General Manager. “We’re excited to see how our new dive manager will continue to grow and improve our unique house reef and our one-of-akind dive operation.” Aguilar says he’s looking forward to leveraging his background and experience to bring value to Divi Resorts and Divi Dive Bonaire.
