Boniare Best Diving Island 2013

Hello LGBTT Divers and Friends:

The 23rd Anniversary of Diving For Life (2014) will be held at
Captain Don's Habitat in Bonaire - September 13-20, 2014

Captain Don’s Habitat is an oceanfront resort set among tropical gardens and native landscaping. Their motto -- ‘Diving Freedom’, 24 hours a day, 365 days a year -- makes it an ideal location for DFL 2014.

Founded in 1976 by the legendary Captain Don Stewart, renowned underwater environmentalist, Habitat has been in the forefront of environmentally sound developments on the island.

In addition to Captain Don’s being a world renowned resort, Bonaire has been awarded “The Best Diving Island” for the year 2013 by Caribbean World Magazine. Bonaire continues to win awards internationally for the best Diving Destination and therefore known as Divers Paradise. If you have not been diving in Bonaire, you have not experienced the best diving the Caribbean has to offer.

Who We Are

Birth of a Movement

Diving For Life is a tax exempt, not for profit organization that sponsors The International Gay and Lesbian SCUBA Jamboree. All proceeds from the Jamboree are donated to charitable organizations that support the health concerns of the GLBTT community.

One who "lives to dive" can also "dive to live." So proved Patrick Kelly when he gave birth to the First Annual Diving For Life Scuba Jamboree in 1992. A veteran diver in love with the sport and infected with the AIDS virus, Patrick's dream was to unite all gay and lesbian divers while raising money to fight the virus which was slowly depriving him of life.
