Dive in and Discover the famous Car Pile in Curaçao

“It is possibly the most unusual traffic jam you are ever likely to see. Cars and trucks dating back to the 1940’s are piled on the wall, and are hugely popular with larger pelagic fish and home to a large variety of sponges. Mountains of cars have been dumped in one spot to make an artificial and very original reef. It’s like diving in the middle of a large car crash without any casualties—the fish manage to swim themselves to freedom. If you’re a vintage car collector, don’t miss this dive. You might find that part you spent years looking for, such as a radiator cap for your old Mercedes.” says Cathy Salisbury
