About Boca Sami

Boca Sami is also the home of Dive Wederfoort, the first dive school of Curaçao, founded in 1955 by Eric Wederfoort. Today, you can find Eric and his wife Yolanda at Wederfoort Apartments.  These are beautiful apartments on the cliffs above Snake Bay which is another popular Boca Sami diving, snorkeling and beach location.

Boca Sami is a very large shallow bay that requires you to swim for some distance before you reach the drop-off. There is a large buoy just outside the bay where large tankers or oil platforms can moor. That means that the sea is deep enough there for these ships. The buoy is attached to a large chain in the bay. This is a very good distinguishing mark on your way back to turn into the bay.

The drop-off is about 45 degrees. In front of the bay the coral density is not very high but after 15 minutes to the right the coral density increased to about 100 percent. Over there the coral and sponges look also healthier. The coast line is not a straight line and the reef meanders back and forth along the coast. It is a nice place to dive.
