The best 5 Spots of the Island

The entire Curaçao 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, not shortage in Things to see and do. 

1. Superior Producer

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 .
