To help lead the way in conserving some of the Caribbean’s most spectacular reefs, Harbour Village offers new guided educational dives for certified divers that show how to nurture the new coral colonies right off the resort’s beach. When corals are ready to be re-planted later this summer, Coral Restoration Specialty certification courses also will be offered.

For every scuba certification instruction course completed at the club’s onsite Great Adventures Bonaire dive center, Harbour Village will donate $10 to Project AWARE, an international movement spearheaded by scuba divers striving to protect the ocean planet “one dive at a time.” All student divers who complete a course will receive a Project AWARE limited edition card to remind them that the place where they learned to dive or furthered their diving education made possible a gift to protect the ocean on their behalf.
• Kids Great Adventures Program. A variety of fun and unique on-land, supervised children’s programming is available, such as photography adventures and marine reef fish spying to learn how to identify the various species of fish that live on the house reef.
