Dear Friends, Divers, and the Ocean Encounters’ family,

Due to the recent concerns regarding the COVID-19 (Coronavirus), we have decided to temporarily close our doors and discontinue all services until further notice.

The Coronavirus has had an unimaginable and lasting effect on all of our lives, and the most important and responsible thing for everyone to do right now is to take care of themselves and their families. Please practice good hygiene, social distancing, wash your hands and sneeze or cough into a tissue. This is a great opportunity for everyone to sit around and do nothing in order to save the human race, so let’s not mess it up!

On the bright side, Mother Earth is taking a big breath of fresh air and our Marine Environment has been given a much-needed rest from human activities. Plus, we all get to re-acquaint ourselves with our homes, take a break from our busy schedules, and spend time with family, while catching up on all those books we’ve been meaning to read, but couldn’t find the time.For those of you who have reservations in the coming months, we strongly urge you to re-book and not cancel.

This is the best way you can support tourism, Curaçao, and most importantly our staff and their families.We look forward to being able to welcome you back to our “Dushi” island, and we hope to provide you with the “ultimate dive experience” sometime in the very near future.

Until then, stay safe, look after each other, and take a big breath of fresh air as well.It would be great to hear how everyone is doing, so please fill the comments area with updates and good stories to brighten everyone’s day.Feel free to contact us if you have any questions or to make a future reservation.
