Frequently Asked Questions about Scuba Diving in Curaçao

As travelers, we all have questions about the destination we would like to visit. Understanding this, here at Dive Curaçao have built (and we are continuing to build) a database of frequently asked questions (the Five Ws, and one H, or the Six Ws) to provide you answers as a basis for information-gathering. These include Who, What, When Where, Why, and How – constituting a formula to allow you to get a more complete story about Curaçao.

If you have a specific question, please complete the contact form. We would like to hear from you because if you have an additional question, or if you cannot find enough (practical) information about a topic please contact us.  We live and dive year round in Curaçao, so we are confident – even if we do not have an immediate answer – we probably know someone who can provide us the information you are looking for.

Largest of the ABC (including Aruba and Bonaire) Islands, Curaçao is home to some of the most bio-diverse reefs in the Caribbean.  The sheltered southern coast is rich in coral, and suitable for divers of all levels, with little in the way of adverse conditions at any of the popular dive sites.  Divers and snorkelers never seem to be able to stop talking about the beauty of scuba diving Curacao.  Let us assure you this is with good reason.

We like to think there is no place in the world offering such great shore dives, boat dives or opportunities to enjoy the beauty of sea’s nature while snorkeling.​  But honestly, as you could imagine, we are a little biased.  So, we have compiled the Top 10 Reasons to Dive Curacao from an international list of travel writers, bloggers and media outlets to help us out and provide you with a fantastic overview of our beautiful island, located in the heart of the Dutch Caribbean.

The Curacao Dive Guide has over 70 world class dive sites plotted on an interactive map that also includes the BEST dive operators and the BEST dive accommodations the island has to offer.

The community of Curacao are true leaders in the fight to protect what they love.

According to CHATA CEO, Miles Mercera, “Our island’s subaquatic life is one of the many things that sets our island apart from the others in the Caribbean. So, it is of immense importance that we all work together as a sustainable community to conserve our ocean. The commitment of the Curacao Dive Industry to the Dive Against Debris and Adopt a Dive Site Initiative is the first step for sustaining and spreading awareness of our island’s ocean life. With the assistance and teamwork of the entire community I am certain that we can make this initiative bigger, create a sustainable change and provide the upcoming generation a healthier ecological marine life.”
