About Ocean Encounters Diving Curacao

What is it about Ocean Encounters and how have they created an atmosphere where divers from around the world want to keep returning to dive in Curacao? Simply, with their on-site facilities at both LionsDive Beach Resort and Sunscape Curacao Resort, Ocean Encounters is committed to delivering you the highest-quality dive vacation experience.

The PADI and SSI facilities are the largest on the island and they cater to the highest number of repeat guests. Divers return to Curaçao and Ocean Encounters for a handful of reasons, starting with the lineup of world-class diving sites, such as Mushroom Forest, Blue Room, Klein Curaçao and Eastpoint, where visitors can’t help but be wowed by the health of the reefs and the density of the fish schools flowing overtop.

Another big reason that divers get hooked on Ocean Encounters is the staff. Every member has been with the company a minimum of five years, and is an expert guide underwater as well as an excellent resource for the essential topside activitiesfor answering questions.

Moreover, the staff continually delivers above and beyond what is expected to ensure that every guest has the ultimate dive vacation.

Ocean Encounters is Ready to go Diving!

With four custom dive boats, Ocean Encounters is ready to make your perfect dive vacation a reality especially because they have quick access to some of the Caribbean’s most pristine and dramatic reefs! 

All this, and it’s set on the island of Curaçao—still a well-kept secret. This Dutch island sits right next door to Bonaire, and delivers the same underwater experience—mountains of brain, stony and elkhorn corals home to seahorses, frogfish and turtles galore—along with a vibrant downtown.

The main city of Willemstad is like Amsterdam with palm trees, dishing up nightlife, upscale dining, shopping and a mix of Spanish and Portuguese architecture honored as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The list of activities available on Curaçao is long, and includes mountain biking, golf, casinos and spas, as well as enjoying white-sand beaches. It’s an ideal destination for divers traveling with non-divers, or for divers wanting to add in more to their next getaway.
