Lagoon Dolphin Dive Experience

The Lagoon Dolphin Dive is an experience for both divers and non-divers. It is an essential activity with Ocean Encounters in Curacao where experience is not necessary!

Here’s your chance to check 2 things off your bucket list. Experience Scuba diving while surrounded by dolphins in a protected lagoon!

If you are non-certified, you will start off with the theory and skills session of a PADI Discover Scuba Diving course that will teach you the basics of Scuba Diving. Then, instead of joining the other students for a Guided Shore Dive on the reef, you will finish the next day with a Guided Dive with bottlenose dolphins in their lagoon. If you are certified, you will skip the theory and skills session. A once in a lifetime experience!

This “Lagoon Dolphin Dive” is available for :
  • certified divers (one afternoon 1.45PM) and/or
  • non-certified divers (split over 2 days – theory session and skills on the afternoon before the dive at 1.45PM; followed by the dolphin dive the next day at 1.45PM).

Scuba dive with dolphins without a dive certification!

Get up close and personal with the dolphins in their world. As you scuba dive in the lagoon, the dolphins will meet you face-to-face so you can gently touch and study the body and behavior of these remarkable mammals. You can’t get any closer than this! And no dive certification required!

This unique experience is offered in partnership with the Curacao Dolphin Academy and the Curaçao Sea AquariumNon-certified divers will be required to enroll in the PADI or SSI Discover Scuba Diving Experience prior to the program.
