Hailing from South Africa, Helliwell started diving nearly three decades ago and quickly fell in love with the sport and started diving all over the world, encountering all sorts of sea creatures, including sharks, seals, sea horses and a variety of fish species. Having visited Bonaire many times for diving holidays, Helliwell says the decision to take the helm at Divi Dive Bonaire was an easy one.

“I have been traveling to Bonaire as a holiday diver for years and know the island’s dive sites very well. Of course, as with most, Bonaire found its way into my heart. Bonaire is voted the best shore diving destination in the world year after year, and I couldn’t agree more,” said Helliwell. “The ease of diving, the freedom of shore diving, the health of the reefscape and the variety of fish are far superior to any other location I have visited. But it is more than that; Bonaire is clean, beautiful and full of adventurous spirit and friendly people. So when my wife and I decided to move to the Caribbean, Bonaire was the logical choice for us.”
