Divi Resorts “Focus” on their Guests

Bonaire Resort adds underwater photography shop for their timeshare guests.
As many of us are digging out from under late winter snowfalls, or donning that extra sweater to offset the chill, I can’t think of a better time to bring up the subject of the Divi Caribbean Resorts. With nine vacation ownership properties in Aruba, Bonaire, Cayman Brac, St. Maarten, Barbados, and St. Croix, there is bound to be a beach chair waiting for you.
Many of the Divi Resorts offer amenities that include full service spas, golf courses, casinos for gaming, and of course some of the most beautiful beaches in the world. Recognizing that most of us cannot afford the cost or commitment of owning a private beach home in this desirable part of the world, the Divi Resorts began offering vacation ownership options nearly 40 years ago.
And in case you somehow manage to get your fill of lounging by the pool, sipping tall cool drinks, or beach combing along miles and miles of white sand or pink shell beaches, the Divi Flamingo Beach Resort & Casino in Bonaire is adding a new guest service. Capture Photo, a full-service underwater photography shop, opens this month, on property at the Netherlands, Antilles resort.
The shop’s staff will include experienced underwater photographers and master divers, ready to assist resort guests, visitors, and local islanders with all realm of underwater photography needs including equipment, services, and instruction.
You don’t have to be an experienced diver to enjoy underwater exploration of the Caribbean. There are numerous locations for joining up with a beginner dive program, as well as some programs just for snorkeling. But if you do have previous dive experience, you might be interested in exploring some of the numerous shipwrecks scattered throughout the islands.
The island of Curacao lies roughly thirty miles west of Bonaire. In 1977, a ship known as Superior Producer set out from the Santa Anna Bay in Willemstad, Curacao, loaded or perhaps overloaded with Christmas merchandise bound for Venezuela. With too much cargo on board, a shift in the load caused the Superior Producer to immediately commence taking on water. She began to sink in only 100 feet of water.
Unable to save her, the rescue team simply towed the ship away from the navigational channel, and allowed her to settle to the bottom of the sea. The Superior Producer is a favorite among wreck divers because she sank on an even keel, making her easy to explore. If you are interested, I found some amateur underwater video of the shipwreck on YouTube.
The Divi Resort at Bonaire would be an excellent destination for anyone interested in exploring Superior Producer first hand. Divi Resorts are a member of the RCI exchange. You can search for Divi timeshare resales and timeshare rentals at Sell My Timeshare NOW.
