Buddy Dive Resort Bonaire – FIRST GUE Dive Center in the Caribbean

BONAIRE, Dutch Caribbean (May 29, 2017) – Buddy Dive Resort Bonaire is proud to announce to be the first and only training facility in the Caribbean and South America to provide courses from Global Underwater Explorers (GUE). Recently the resort became an official GUE dive center.   

According to German Arango, also known as ‘Mr. G’, Buddy Dives’ Technical Diving Coordinator, this is a great new asset for the Caribbean region: “GUE provides the highest quality of diver education by  teaching to refine your diving on a level no other training organization does. By taking a GUE course you will increase your safety and control during your dives and consequently your dives will be more enjoyable and fun.”

GUE dive center
As a GUE dive center Buddy Dive Resort has a full time GUE Instructor that takes care of maintaining what is needed to support both GUE recreational and exploration grade dives by providing standard gasses, appropriate GUE dive equipment and year-round access to GUE dive training. Buddy Dive Resort is committed to regular GUE courses, including but not limited to Fundamentals, Tech 1, Tech 2, DPV and Primers.  At the same time Buddy Dive promotes the research, exploration, and educational goals of GUE  via ‘Mr. G’.

GUE training
GUE is committed to developing safe, skilled and knowledgeable divers (recreational and technical). The GUE system stands for the highest quality of diving education by teaching solid fundamental skills. Most difficulty in diving relates to poorly developed basic skills such as good buoyancy control and the use of inefficient equipment. This could cause unnecessary exhaustion, stress and degradation of the dive site, even for the more experienced diver. By emphasizing solid fundamental diving skills, GUE training provides greater enjoyment and safeguards the integrity of the fragile marine ecosystems.

TeK event
Every year in October Buddy Dive TeK hosts the Bonaire TeK event, a week fully dedicated to technical diving. ‘Mr. G’: “Divers can immerse themselves in the world of tec diving through demonstrations, presentations, training and workshops. Instructor trainers of GUE, NAUI and PADI will be present to answer all questions. We welcome divers from around the world to this event.” This year’s Buddy Dive TeK event will take place from October 7 till October 14, 2017.
