Diving in Curacao is an excellent choice

This Caribbean island has a great number of amazing coral reefs. You also will see underwater steep cliff walls and sunken ships. The island’s dive sites are protected from strong currents, and the sea water is warm all year round, making this a great place for those who want to “blow their first bubbles” or learn new diving skills. Most of Curaçao’s dive sites are accessible from the coast and most resorts have beautiful coral reefs to explore. Boat diving / Liveaboard is, however, the preferred way chosen for diving excursions in large numbers of operators on the island. Curacao has recently been awarded several dive authorizations.
