What to Expect when Sailing to Klein Curaçao:

“The best beach isn’t on Curacao at all, it’s on Klein Curacao, an uninhabited cay a few miles off the southeastern coast.” – Lonely Planet, Travelbook.

Surrounded by spectacular coral reefs, Klein Curacao is a sunlit pearl in the Caribbean Sea, just off the coast of Curacao. This uninhabited island is about an 1,5-hour boat ride away from Curacao and holds an intriguing history, mystery and beauty on just 1.7 square kilometers! Explorers, sunbathing enthusiasts, snorkelers and divers will all really enjoy a trip to diverse Klein Curacao!

Sail with BlueFinn Charters to Klein Curacao

Jump on board the BlueFinn, a beautiful 75 foot Catamaran and sail to the deserted Caribbean island of Klein Curaçao! Just imagine yourself on this uninhabited island in the middle of the Caribbean sea with a pearl white beach stretching along the western shoreline.

Step a board and join the sailing trip to Klein Curacao (Little Curacao). Departure is at 8:30 AM and the sailing trip will take approximately one hour and 45 minutes, depending on weather conditions.

Once at the island, you can dive in or snorkel in the crystal clear waters or explore the island that includes a lighthouse, shipwrecks plus the incredible natural beauty and wildlife.

BlueFinn will hoist their sails at 3:00 PM, to ride on the easterly trade winds, for a relaxing sail back to the mainland of Curaçao and to arrive at Jan Thiel Bay around 5:00pm.

Traveler Tip:  We would encourage you to explore the topside treasures of the Klein Curaçao.  A wonderful path will lead you toward the west side of the island where you will first encounter the lighthouse that dates to 1913 and then on to the shipwrecks of the famous oil tanker ‘Maria Bianca Guidesman’, the German freighter called “Magdalena”, and the most recent wreck of the French yacht called “Tchao”.
