So if you are looking to dive into Paradise, Dive Curaçao has found it right here on Curacao, located in the heart of the Dutch Caribbean!
The island nation of Curaçao is home to some of the best scuba diving sites and thriving fringing reef systems that can be found anywhere in Caribbean.
Though this little Dutch Caribbean island is best known for its colourful colonial waterfront in Willemstad, too few know about the rainbow of vibrant coral and marine life under its waters. That is why Dive Curacao developed this useful Curacao Dive Guide and Interactive map that allows you to explore Curacao and easily plan your next Caribbean diving adventure!
Boat Diving Adventures
Of the island’s 70 dive sites you’ll be hard-pressed to find a bad one. From an abundance of sea turtles to some of the most vibrant coral you’ll find anywhere in the world, to wrecks both deep and shallow, there’s something for everyone to experience and explore here on Curacao.
One Day will not be Enough!
Regardless of where you choose to stay, the decision should not be to dive either East or West, the decision should be to discover all of Curaçao (warning: many attempts may be necessary but easier now using the Curacao Diving Guide) to truly uncover the magic that lies below the waterline.
Because there is a depth to our Dutch Caribbean island that you really do need to feel for yourself.
Unlimited Shore Diving Adventures
In a sport where you often must charter a boat to see the best of the underwater world, Curacao is a unique shore diving haven for divers looking to take the advantage of a more leisurely schedule and explore Curacao.
Easy Shore Access
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.
Snorkeling Trips and Tours
About one-third of the southern coast of Curaçao is Curaçao Underwater Marine Park, a protected marine park, with a couple of wrecks, wall diving, and more. Curaçao is the perfect place for every level of snorkelers at all ages to explore the easily accessible, and abundant, marine life found in these crystal-clear waters.
Essential Snorkeling Experiences
For snorkelers, one of the most popular spots to explore is the famous Curacao sunken tugboat of Caracasbaai located in only 5 meters (15-feet) of water or the breathtaking Blue Room near Santa Cruz. Another essential experience for divers and snorkelers alike is a boat trip to Klein Curaçao where you can explore healthy hard and soft corals, not to mention lots of other marine life.
