Captain Don's Habitat

In the early days of recreational diving, inspired by the spectacular underwater beauty of Bonaire, Captain Don Stewart set out to build a true haven for divers. His philosophy was simple: build a dive shop with rooms and provide ample freedom so guest divers can dive their own profile in a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. In 1976 his dream became reality when he founded Captain Don's Habitat. Back then it was just a cluster of bungalows built around a dive shop overlooking the beautiful Caribbean Sea. More importantly, some of the most pristine coral formations and a bonanza of colorful marine life are just a few fin kicks away...

Through the years Captain Don's Habitat evolved into a world renowned resort catering to today's most demanding divers and vacationers. Set amidst lush green gardens with colorful decor and landscaping Captain Don’s now offer the comfort of three deluxe varieties of accommodations, a fresh water pool, great dining and entertainment options, friendly service, and of course, the best diving in the Caribbean 24 hours per day, 365 days per year.

At a very early stage, Captain Don realized the importance of conservation for Bonaire's beautiful underwater resources. His endeavors led to the creation of the permanent mooring system and eventually to the Bonaire Marine Park. For his efforts in marine environment conservation, Captain Don has received many awards and recognition all over the world.
