Curacao is full of unlimited shore diving adventures and a unique haven for divers looking to take the advantage of a more leisurely schedule.
According to ShoreDiving.com, Curaçao has thirty-eight dive sites accessible by beach that have an average diver rating of 3.8 out of 5. Given the average vacation is only seven days, and you need one full day in between diving and flying home, you have six world class shore dives you can hit every single day of your trip. On top of that each site is unique, so shore diving Curacao offers no shortage of exploration opportunities.
Curaçao is surrounded by more than 104 sq. km (40 sq. miles) of some of the best coral reefs in the Caribbean, but has remained off radar for most diving enthusiasts. These healthy fringing reef systems are attracting all kinds of marine life visitors, and hopefully more human visitors now too.
When it comes to discovering Curacao, please try not to limit your experience to either the East or West because there is so much incredible magic that is happening just below the waterline. In order to truly uncover this “best-kept secret of the Caribbean” you will need to take giant stride in, to plunge yourself into the warm turquoise waters. But, be prepared for your senses to be overwhelmed by a 360-degree kaleidoscope of intense colour and abundant life.
The only thing better than easy shore access, is having a knowledgeable & responsible dive operator available to take care of your every need. At a good number of the popular sites along the coast you will find a Curaçao Tourist Board approved dive shop serving that area. Use the Curacao Dive Guide and ask to see the “Curaçao Tourist Board Approved” quality check to ensure when visiting the Island, you dive with only the best!
So, pack your mask, fins, dive computer, certification card and your thirst for unlimited shore diving adventures because down here in Curaçao, the only bad shore dive is the dive you don’t go on!
Are you looking for some seriously fun shore diving adventures coupled with fantastic drive and dive packages with unlimited shore diving options? Then you need to dive into these scuba diving vacation packages from The Dive Bus Curaçao.
The Caribbean has no shortage of awe-inspiring views and vacation destinations, but the real majesty of this region is nestled to the west of the central Atlantic Ocean and found below the surface of her azure waves. These naturally clear turquoise waters provide ideal habitats to thousands of species of corals, fish, crabs, turtles, rays, sharks, and more which in turn attracts divers & snorkelers alike from all over the world.
Curacao is laid out in a way that makes the southern side of the island almost perfect for shore diving. Thanks to the geographic location, the winds in the area come from the Northeast, meaning that almost the entire southern shoreline is protected from heavy sea winds. The lack of strong winds means that divers can get their feet wet almost any time of year, and the diving from shore is calmer and safer.
On the south side of the island, the fringing reef in most cases is within 60-feet (20m) from the shoreline which leads to incredible drop offs that allow divers to venture a little bit deeper into the aquatic wonderland. Of the seventy popular dive sites the island has available, over half of them are reachable from the shore, and nearly all these shore dive sites are clearly marked along the road way. Curaçao knows they have great shore diving, and they have gone out of their way to accommodate adventurers looking to take advantage of the matchless wonder.
