How to dive Double Reef

As with most sites in Curacao, you’ll want to look closely and pay attention. This small island isn’t known for large pelagics, but rather the abundance of smaller, reef-dwelling critters and the healthy reefs they call home. Take the time to look in every nook and cranny, including the sand in between the two reefs here. In doing so, you’ll be rewarded with the crazy eyes of gobies and blennies, the bustling work of cleaner shrimp, tiny crabs, cute baby and juvenile boxfish, hiding eels, lurking lionfish and more.

Relax here and pause to watch closely while working on your buoyancy, and enjoy the show.

The first reef bottoms out at approx. 45 ft; the top of the outer reef starting at approx. 60 feet and dropping off to….. deep.  A beautiful dive site, stay shallow if the current is strong.

About the Mangrove Beach Resort Curacao – Curio by Hilton

Come and enjoy a 5 Star All-inclusive holiday at the brand new Mangrove Beach Resort in Curaçao! Exclusive to Curaçao, this is only 5-star resort in the Caribbean that is surrounded on three sides by a lush mangrove forest which is also a nature reserve.

Right outside the door is the lovely private beach with excellent diving opportunities on the house reef. For more information consult Groove Diving, the onsite PADI Dive Center.

From the 24-hour Ultra All Inclusive hotel you can easily walk to the center of Willemstad and the historic, natural harbor. You will also be amazed in the hotel. How about a Food Street with Dutch snacks, pizzas, waffles and ice cream, luxurious rooms, spacious suites and 3 swimming pools?

The aqua park with spectacular slides such as the free fall, rafting slide, blackhole and multi lane is of course completely cool. And to top it all off, the unique, adventurous, revolutionary King Cobra that will give you an adrenaline rush anyway. This is what we call; next level aquafun!

So ‘unplug’ yourself from your busy (work) life, because this is the place to surrender to the relaxed life rhythm of Curaçao.
