Certified Scuba Diving in Curacao

Select Date and Travelers

Select tour language
Certified divers, lets go it is dive time! Diving Curaçao is an amazing experience. This is a small group tour with focus on quality, unless you are part of a large group who want to dive together.

The waters of Curaçao offer spectacular visibility along with many species of fish that are found only in Curaçao. On a typical dive you may French angelfish, eels, morays, lion fish or parrot fish, a variety of live coral and, of course, a spectacular variety of colorful tropical fish.
  • Choice of two scuba dives in Curacao: morning or afternoon departure
  • Dive equipment included (BCD, regulator, wetsuit, fins, mask, and tank)
  • Explore Caracasbaai or Marie Pampoen for coral, tropical fish, octopus, and more
  • Supervision from a divemaster
What to Expect
Make your way to the departure point at your chosen time (morning or afternoon). At the dive center, get fitted for all the equipment you’ll need, including an oxygen tank. The morning shore dive features a dramatic wall on one side and on the other, a reef, home to a variety of coral and marine creatures. Explore the underwater world with your small group and supervising dive guide; it’s a great spot for underwater photos. The day's afternoon dive is Marie Pampoen, located off a sandy beach for easy walk-in entry. Appropriate for both novice and experienced divers, the site features sponges, coral, and is a favorite habitat for octopuses. The "Car Pile," a collection of old construction beams, is home to lionfish, barracuda, and tarpon. These guided dives are appropriate for certified divers of any level; a guide will ensure your comfort and safety the entire time.

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!!!!!!
