in the Pietermaai District of Curaçao
At Dive City, scuba divers and snorkeling enthusiasts are welcome at the Scuba Lodge Dive Center Pietermaai where they can rent gear, book guided trips, and schedule diving courses.
For diving it cannot get any better, the water is warm and clear and the reef stretches all the way around the island. At only 20 meters (65 ft) distance from the hotel we have a wonderful house reef with small walls, big sponges and lots of fish. Dolphins are known to pass by on a regular basis, but to see them requires excellent timing!
