What is Dive Curacao about?
Dive Curaçao is the #1 Independent Resource for scuba diving & snorkeling information on the beautiful Dutch Caribbean Island of Curaçao. We invite you to dive in – not only to learn more about scuba diving, snorkeling, and freediving in Curaçao but also to explore all the exciting things to do our on beautiful Dutch Caribbean island – to make Curaçao your own experience.
We like to think there is no place in the world offering such great shore dives, boat dives or opportunities to enjoy the beauty of sea’s nature while snorkeling. But honestly, as you could imagine, we are a little biased. So, we have compiled the Top 10 Reasons to Dive Curaçao from an international list of travel writers, bloggers and media outlets to help us out and provide you with a fantastic overview of our beautiful island, located in the heart of the Dutch Caribbean.
According to USA TODAY: “Scuba Diving on Curaçao is the number one thing to DO” – but of course there are plenty of things to do on Curaçao and no right way to experience any of them. All travelers can make the island their own experience while embracing it authentic, unforgettable spirit.
The Leading Independent Scuba Diving Platform for the Dutch Caribbean
Dive Curaçao, from the very beginning, was originally created to be a complete online resource for Curaçao dive tourism. Since the founding and official launch in 2016, the platform has grown tremendously. Today, Dive Curacao has extensive content that covers a wide range of topics.
The major pillars of the platform now include: Dive Travel Curaçao, Dive News Curaçao, Curaçao Diving and Snorkeling Guide, Curaçao Dive Travel Guides, Curaçao Events and Festivals, and Sustainable Tourism.
The fact is, Dive Curaçao is a dynamic platform that is continually evolving. We are dedicated to build an atmosphere that both educates and fosters the enjoyment of sharing the amazing underwater experiences that are available here in Curaçao.
But, we also have a deep desire to highlight the key differences that clearly distinguishes Curaçao from other Caribbean and worldwide destinations. As mentioned above, Scuba Diving may be the number one thing to do but it is also essential that we provide you a clear understanding regarding the islands beautiful history, culture, language, food and music too while promoting the fact that we as a community are active with marine conservation and sustainable tourism initiatives.

We are able to provide an exceptionally high level of service because we are a boutique agency that has partnered with the BEST Curaçao dive shops, tour operators and accommodations in Curaçao.
However, it is impossible to create a sustainable business model today in dive travel and tourism if we do not understand that healthy coral reefs are required. Therefore, in collaboration with our partners, Dive Travel Curaçao is investing in the future of sustainable tourism by donating 1% it is annual profits to Reef Renewal Curaçao so they can continually restore Curaçao’s shallow water reef system while educating the community (the youth in particular) about protecting, and preserving, Curacao’s natural ecosystem.
Bryan Horne – the Creator and Founder
It was this lucky Canadian’s love of scuba diving that brought him to Curaçao. It was the rest of the island that kept him here.
Bryan Horne wasn’t born in Curaçao; he’s a Canadian native, drawn to our island “out of a passion for scuba diving and the underwater world.”
Moving was always going to be a life-changing decision, but in diving, Bryan had found his calling.
As the founder and owner of Dive Curaçao, he spends his days showing off Curaçao’s hidden undersea treasures – and does his part to preserve them for future generations.
