Our Story

At Bespoke Journeys, our passion for travel and diving runs deep. If we are not traveling, we are thinking about our next adventure. We are so lucky to have been able to work in the travel industry for over 30 years, helping other travel lovers explore land and sea. It’s a bonus to combine our love for travel and diving into Bespoke Journeys. We live on Bonaire and get to organize travel services for visitors to come here and experience the world class diving we can do every day. Bonaire offers some of the best diving conditions you can find. Come and see for yourself. You won’t be disappointed.

We also take groups of keen divers to other great diving destinations. Diving in new locations is a fantastic way to expand your diving horizons, meet new people and chill out at far-flung destinations. You can check out upcoming Dive Tours, see if they interest you and join us!
