North-east Curaçao Dive Sites

ALL North-side dive sites are unmarked boat diving locations and extend from the north-east point to the north western tip known as Westpunt.

ALL north-side dives are rarely ever dived by recreational divers due to the large swells, the iron shoreline and heavy currents. This combination of extreme conditions make the unmarked dive sites an enormous challenge. In fact, these sites represent a serious safety concern for unexperienced divers without the appropriate training or skill sets required. For more information about these north-side dive sites, please contact Dive Charter Curaçao.
