All of Curacao is a spectacular destination for dive sites as it is the home to warm waters, biodiverse reefs, and vibrant island life.
The Island is located in the southern Caribbean and is part of the group of Antilles known as the ABCs. The other two islands in this collection include Aruba on the West and Bonaire on the east.
It has some of the most biodiverse reefs, stunning cultural heritage, tragic history, and fantastic tourist activities. All in all, no shortage of things to see and do.
One of the best wrecks in the Caribbean.
Superior Producer is an amazing wreck that sits upright and is fully covered with sponges and corals. You often see it surrounded by tarpons and barracudas. It is a deep dive (30mt /100 ft), so you are only able to dive there if you are an advanced diver. The depth means you won´t have too much time to take pictures, but you will definitely enjoy it. It is about a 10 minute swim from shore. But be aware! If there is a cruise ship in port, you are not going to be able to go there, because this wreck lies just below the cruise ship pier .
A place for everyone!
This famous Curaçao Tugboat wreck is just 5 meters (15ft) below water, this site is absolutely perfect for divers as well as snorkelers. It is a place for everyone! The wreck is already overgrown with tube sponges and corals and of course is home to a variety of colorful reef fish too.
You can find the Pier next to it, so it is not just a wreck full of sponges and critters but also a really amazing place!
3. Double Reef
Turtles Sleeping Paradise
You can access next to the Water Plant in Otrabanda.
As it´s name says, Double Reef, is an amazing spot where you can start your dive at one reef and cross through a sandy area to get to the other reef.
The second reef holds most of the fun! Corals everywhere! and in this part is where you can find tons of turtles enjoying a nice and relaxing nap.
Turtles, turtles and more turtles!
Here you can find the Neptune’s Statue, checking all the ocean around him.
Playa Piskado, also known as Playa Grandi, is a fishermen´s beach, and also the home for turtles. The local fishermen clean and sell their fish here, so the turtles come around to get a little snack.
Here you can snorkel with turtles and also enjoy a really nice dive. Please never ever ever touch the turtles, you will see all the signs made by the Sea Turtle Conservation Curacao, who are the ones that take the best care of these amazing creatures.
Our very own Coral Reef Restoration project! Here you will be able to see how we work to make the ocean more lively and bring back the coral beds.
We start with hanging up little pieces of coral to elevate them away from predators and invasive algae which also allows the corals to grow in all directions making the growth process go faster. After they have reached a decent size we outplant them back to the ground where, in time, they become part of the reef again. All thanks to all of you that donate for the corals and Coral Restoration Curaçao.
As most places in Curacao, Marie Pampoen is a shore dive with an easy entry and is full of sponges, corals and marine life.
