Captain Don's Habitat

Captain Don’s Habitat is built on the water’s edge with a small sandy beach about 5 minutes’ drive north of the island’s capital of Kralendijk. The resort was founded in 1976 by the renowned underwater legend Captain Don Stewart who was at the forefront of environmentally sound developments on the island of Bonaire for many years. The pristine house reef accessible from the beach is awash with colourful parrotfish, angel fish, feisty sergeant majors, butterfly fish, scrawled file fish, grunt, gobies and groupers. An abundance of marine life surrounds the waters of this resort and even the most experienced diver will not be disappointed with this world class diving destination!

The resort offers an array of accommodation to suit all needs and pockets with 57 different types of rooms available including 12 deluxe junior suites, 16 two bedroom bungalows, 2 one bedroom bungalows, 3 ocean view villas and 24 deluxe ocean view rooms. All rooms are modern and comfortable in design and the resort can also cater for guests with limited mobility.

The oceanfront restaurant boasts excellent international and daily local specials, while the Pizza Temple offers authentic Italian thin crust pizzas with a wide variety of speciality toppings. Breakfast is served buffet style from 7am to 10am with eggs cooked fresh to order. Delicious salads, sandwiches, burgers and snacks are served daily at lunchtime in the oceanfront restaurant from 11.30am to 2pm. Dinner is a la carte apart from Monday nights which is “eat as much as you like BBQ” buffet from 7pm till 10pm. The Deco Stop Bar is the perfect place to talk over the day’s events or to organise the following day whilst enjoying the wonderful views and sunsets. Here you will be able to just kick back and relax!

14 days at the Captain Don’s Habitat with unlimited diving

We thoroughly enjoyed our 13 days diving at Captain Don’s Habitat. The staff at the hotel, Rum Runners restaurant and the dive centre made us feel very welcomed and did their best to make our stay enjoyable. The diving was excellent and certainly as good as any other warm water diving we have experienced. One highlight was the fluorescent night dive provided by Bonphoto. We have never experienced a night dive like it in 27 years of diving. It provided a completely different view of the coral and night creatures. We are already planning to go back next year.

I & E

14 Nights at the Captain Don’s Habitat

We enjoyed our holiday, the diving was great. Every year there seem to be more fish probably due to the marine reserve. We were in one of the refurbished rooms at CDs. Very comfortable and kept clean. Walk-in shower room with really good modern plumbing and plenty of hot water. The dive centre was as good as ever. Same staff as previous years. They recognised us and there was no need to go through the bureaucracy that we associate with other dive centres.
