Mushroom Forest and the Blue Room

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.
