The boat departs from the dock at these two locations. Just make sure you are available 15 minutes before departure.
Mushroom Forest is one of the most famous dive sites in Curaçao. Over time, hard coral formations have grown in such a way that they resemble mushrooms, hence the name.
Underneath each one of these coral formations an abundance of marine life awaits to be looked at, admired, and photographed.
At Mushroom Forest you will find that high cliffs rise out of the water. These land formations protect the area and makes it an ideal location for all experience levels including snorkelers who just want to have fun on the surface!
Along the cliff side is a large cave called The Blue Room, where you will often spot schools of fingerlings, and from time-to-time a nurse shark can be found sleeping under the ledge.
Visibility averages 26m (85 ft), wave action is calm and sometimes the current can be strong; the depth is from 12m (40 ft) to 18m (60 ft). Numerous species of fish and coral can be observed here; flower corals, giant brain corals, anemones, sea turtles, porcupine fish, smooth trunk fish, yellow tail snappers, parrot fish, groupers, spotted drums, spotted moray eels, green moray eels, lobsters, and conchs.
Don’t miss it! You will love it!
Of course you can! Our private boat trips are customized especially for you and can be combined with a one tank boat or two tank dive. These trips are fun for the whole family or group of friends, whether you are certified or not.
BUT… If you have you always wondered what it’s like to breathe underwater and you want to try scuba diving, consider the Discover Scuba Diving experience. At Ocean Encounters this PADI or SSI introduction to scuba diving course is available at LionsDive Beach Resort or at Sunscape Curaçao Resort, Spa and Casino.
While not a scuba certification course, Discover Scuba Diving is a quick and easy introduction to what it takes to explore the underwater world.
To sign up for a PADI or SSI Discover Scuba Diving experience, you must be at least 10 years old. No prior experience with scuba diving is necessary, but you need to be in reasonable physical health. Are you ready to dive in with Ocean Encounters to discover the magic of the underwater world?
At Ocean Encounters, our Dive Team consists of attentive PADI and SSI Professional Dive Masters. They make it their career to not only serve you but also to provide pre-dive and pre-snorkel safety briefings, dive and snorkel site orientations and, of course to expertly guide the dives and the snorkeling tours. Their combination of skills, abilities and local knowledge of the dive sites leaves nothing to chance.
The boat ride to Klein Curaçao takes approximately 1.5 hours depending on the overall weather conditions.
