The best diving in Curaçao, amazing experience
Jan 2020 • Couples
I went for two dives with this center this week after obtaining my open water certificate here earlier. Both were amazing experiences, where I’ve seen a wide variety of brilliant marine life. It honestly felt like you were swimming in the midst of a Planet Earth episode. These guys are really passionate about their craft, and this reflects in them knowing the best diving spots and guiding you in the safest way possible. They are also really friendly and accommodating. Go here if you value a personal approach with a high regard for safety. A+ will definitely return.

There is so much to see underwater that it indeed seems as if you have ended up in an episode of Planet Earth. Hopefully, we will see each other again soon so that we can make even more fun dives.

Great Scuba Rental Shop!
Jun 2019 • Couples
We rented Scuba Gear from this shop for over a week and loved it. You can't beat their prices on the island, and the Mares Dive Gear is fantastic. The are very friendly, speak English and Dutch, and were more than accommodating with our multiple rentals. Highly Recommended!!!!!!

Absolutely wonderful!
We booked a dive for my husband and I decided to snorkel. They were wonderful and set us both up with all the equipment we needed. We received great service, quality equipment, and had a fantastic experience all around. Would definitely recommend!
