With four custom dive boats, a PADI dive facility and quick access to some of the Caribbean’s most pristine and dramatic reefs, Ocean Encounters makes the perfect dive week vacation a reality.
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.
With on-site facilities at both LionsDive and Sunscape Resort, Ocean Encounters is committed to delivering the highest-quality dive experience.
The facility is the biggest on island, catering to the highest number of repeat guests. Divers return to Curaçao and Ocean Encounters for a handful of reasons, starting with the lineup of famous 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 a resource topside for answering questions.
Moreover, the staff continually delivers above and beyond what is expected to ensure that every guest has the ultimate dive vacation.
