Jan Thiel Bay

Located at Jan Thiel beach, with easy access to get in and out of the water, this is a typical Curacao diving and snorkeling site starting at a sandy plateau going down on a sloping reef. The best treat at the end of the dive will be the curious school of squid looking directly into your eyes.

Outside of the Jan Thiel Bay, you will find a beautiful reef with steep slopes. The reef has a lot of corals and fishes. Very often you will see turtles. 

The reef is hilly and slopes down gently. You find a big variety of hard and soft corals, donkey dung sea cucumbers and long spined black sea urchins. Inside the bay, lies the Strea - a wreck of a sailing boat which is a very nice ending to your dive or snorkeling experience.
