Kortape is a rarely visited West end dive site. Located next to Marazul Dive Resort, approximately 30 feet above the gorgeous plateau, this beautiful boat diving site offers a healthy blend of hard and soft corals. If you are a sponge lover, then this will be a treat for your senses!!
Until now, you could find Kortape on any Curacao dive maps and the description, well – we will leave that to your imagination!
But be prepared for a 360 degree kaleidoscope of life and colour!!
