Open Water Dolphin Dive

The Open Water Dolphin Dive in Curacao is a once in a lifetime experience, brought to you exclusively by Ocean Encounters and the Curacao Dolphin Academy.

Diving with Dolphins in Curacao

It is an essential and unique experience!

This interactive experience with dolphins at Shipwreck Point, an amazing fringing reef system outside of the Curaçao Sea Aquarium, allows you to immerse yourself in a dolphins’ world to observe their natural playful behavior.

What makes this experience so incredibly unique is the dolphins will dictate their own level of engagement with you and they are free to decide how they want to as well!

Whether it’s chasing and catching fish on the reef, or interacting face-to-face with you, they will be calling the shots!

Space is limited for this exclusive experience – sign up today.
