Curacao International Dive Festival – an Annual Event supporting Sustainable Tourism
The Curacao Dive Festival, an international event, is focused on building an atmosphere that will both educate and foster the enjoyment of sharing underwater experiences and also highlight what Curaçao has to offer as a world class vacation destination.
In 2019, The enthusiastic driving force behind this successful renewed attention for Curaçao as a diving destination was Bryan Horne who humbly admits that he was “proud to lead the return of Curacao Dive Festival that has signaled an unprecedented collaboration for sustainable tourism, ocean conservation and a union of the Curacao tourism stakeholders that includes a long list of dedicated industry sponsors!”
The festival’s event calendar features unique events like a coral restoration workshop, lionfish hunting and underwater painting classes. Bryan Horne, founder of the Dive Curacao, says the goal of the week is to give a taste of everything Curaçao has to offer.
“We’re tying the community together and giving divers — or anyone, really — a fantastic vision of what the underwater world is and what Curacao is doing to protect it,” he says.
