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 a PADI or SSI Discover Scuba Diving (DSD) course that includes theory, skills and a Guided Dive on the house reef to practice for the Dolphin Lagoon Dive. Then, the next day, you will do the Dolphin Lagoon Dive with bottlenose dolphins in their lagoon. If you are certified, you will skip the DSD course. 

A once in a lifetime experience!

This “Lagoon Dolphin Dive” is available for :
  • certified divers (one afternoon 1.45PM)
  • non-certified divers (split over 2 days – DSD course on the afternoon before the dive at 1.45PM; followed by the Dolphin Lagoon Dive the next day at 1.45PM).
  • DSD course is not included in the price of the Dolphin Lagoon Dive Experience.
  • DSD course is mandatory for non-certified divers and offered at a discounted price of 100 USD if in combination with the Dolphin Lagoon Dive (additional custom link will be sent if course is needed). 

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.
