Divers return to Curaçao and Ocean Encounters for a handful of reasons, starting with the lineup of famous sites, such as Mushroom Forest, Blue Room, Klein Curaçao and Eastpoint, where visitors can’t help but be wowed by the health of the reefs and the density of the fish schools flowing overtop.

Ocean Encounters Diving Curacao is Ready!

Curaçao is consistently a world class dive and vacation destination… But this can be said about so many other world class destinations too, such as our better-known sister Bonaire.  As true as this statement is, it is also true that as a community, “Curacao is clearly distinguishing ourselves from these other world class destinations by focusing on not only the blue factors but also highlighting the topside richness of our island where you can experience the essence of Curacao through the culture, language, music, and history.” says, Jeremiah Peek, General Manager of Ocean Encounters.

Jeremiah went on to say, “The fact is that Curaçao is one of the most unique islands in the Dutch Caribbean, if not the world, that offers everyone who visits something different because it bridges all the gaps, intrigues all the senses and allows you all the freedom to experience it, on your own terms.  I guess that is why we say that all you need is to dive in and feel it for yourself”.

The Curaçao sun is waiting for you.

There are still destinations where you can enjoy a relaxing sun holiday in the coming months. Fortunately, Curaçao receives you with open arms and at an appropriate distance. The sun on your back, your gaze over the bright blue sea, a cold drink at your fingertips; the worries of the past months are slowly slipping away. Curaçao has restarted tourism in a controlled manner and the number of infections is under control. Because all tourists have to do a COVID-19 PCR test and measures have been taken, COVID-19 is not so intrusive. Of course we want to keep Curaçao safe for you as a visitor, but of course also for our population.

So don’t wait any longer, the Curaçao sun is waiting for you. Experience it for yourself!
