Welcome to Captain Don’s Habitat
Founded in 1976, by renowned underwater environmentalist Captain Don Stewart, Captain Don’s Habitat has been in the forefront of environmentally sound developments on the island of Bonaire. His vision is also reflected in the design of the resort. From the low impact construction methods to the use of solar water heaters and energy saving devices, as well as a state of the art waste-water treatment system, every detail has been designed to have the least possible impact on the local environment. The rooms and facilities are nestled in lush landscaping carefully designed to eliminate harmful runoff into the fragile marine Eco-system thriving right in front of Captain Don’s Habitat. Walking through the resort, one can truly appreciate a broad spectrum of the flora and fauna of Bonaire.
Dive with us
Captain Don’s Habitat Dive Operation is a PADI Resort and an SDI 5 Star Professional Development Center. It is centrally located within the resort complex for easy access from all rooms. We offer three 1-tank boat departures daily, at 8.30 am, 11 am and 2 pm, to over 50 moored sights on our custom-built dive boats. Each mooring buoy is limited to 1 boat so you’ll have the reef all to yourself. Diving Rates are priced per person per day unless otherwise noted.
Total Diving Freedom has always been the concept at Captain Don’s Habitat. Over 50 world-class dives are within a 15-minute boat ride. Diving Freedom means 24 hours a day, 365 days a year with no rush or anxiety. Take a giant stride off our divers-only pier “baby dock” and you’re already looking at clusters of starlet coral, surrounded by colorful wrasse and gobies, and the drop-off starts in 30 feet, only a few kicks away. Shore diving is a must at Captain Don’s Habitat and around the island of Bonaire rated as the top shore diving destination in the world! Following accepted safe diving practices, you can grab a tank and go….whenever you want!
Dine with us
Oceanfront dining at its best!! The experienced chefs and waiters in this idyllic setting ensure that all meals are a true pleasure.
