Swim amongst sea turtles, barracudas and manta rays: diving on Curaçao is a dream. Admire schools of angel fish, parrot fish and trumpet fish, or take a closer look at swaying marine sponges. But to explore this underwater world, one must first learn how to dive. There are around 30 diving schools in Curaçao so take your pick!
It takes a little effort to explore the wonderful underwater world: scuba diving can be a bit complicated at first. Most diving schools offer a 3 or 4-day course for beginners to obtain a basic PADI certification. On Curaçao you will not learn to dive in a cold pool or murky pond but in the lukewarm, azure waters of the Caribbean Sea. And although the official language is Dutch, English is widely spoken everywhere including at the diving schools.
