Curaçao Dive Sites 

  • Eel Valley
  • On the east side of Santa Barbara Resort, and just underneath its golf course, we find this amazing dive site.
  • Booby Trap
  • Perfect place to work on some sponge identification: all types of sponges cover the slope.
  • Double Reef
  • West of Santa Ana Bay, this double reef has its shallows covered with small brain corals and loads of sun anemones.
  • Shipwreck Point
  • This is like diving inside an aquarium! Next to our dive shop, sits one of the healthiest reefs around Curacao.
  • Beacon Point
  • Currents make this site an intermediate to advanced dive. You will see the largest pillar coral formation in the Caribbean at this dive.
  • Klein Curacao
  • A very special trip for divers only. They say that in Klein Curacao underwater everything is bigger and there is more of it.
  • Cornelius Bay
  • Elkhorn Coral can be spotted during this dive on the plateau. Seahorses are found around the many gorgonians along the wall.
  • Mushroom Forest
  • One of the most famous dive sites in Curacao. Over time hard coral formations have grown in such a way that they resemble mushrooms, hence the name.
  • Superior Producer
  • Sport Diver Magazine rates the Superior Producer as one of the Caribbean’s best wreck dives. This cargo freighter sunk in December of 1977 and is now sitting upright at a depth of 100ft/30m.
  • Newport
  • This beautiful and pristine Curacao dive site is only accessed by Ocean Encounters. A beautiful slope with great star coral, brain coral, and soft gorgonians.
  • Smokeys
  • How to describe this wonderful Curacao dive? It is pristine with large dense corals, great visibility and simply beautiful.
  • Blue Bay Gardens
  • A true underwater garden. Box crabs in the sand, octopus, and baby clusters of brain and star corals. On the slope gorgonians, large brain and star corals. Lots of cleaning stations.
  • Snake Bay
  • If you want to be in the middle of a fish traffic jam, this is the dive site for you. Huge Jacks chasing bait balls, Caribbean Chromies, Creole Wrasses, Southern Rays, and Turtles.
  • East Point
  • A pristine and unspoiled reef at the very East of Curacao. Only to be reached by boat trip, this site is part of our Special Boat Trip to Klein Curacao.
  • Barracuda Point
  • A favorite Curacao dive, covered in dense coral formations, gorgonians and boulder corals. Turtles are spotted often on this dive site, as well as jacks and barracudas.
  • Small Wall
  • The name says it all, it is a wall and it is small. Overhangs and little nooks house schools of soldierfish, grunts, and damsels protecting their gardens and eggs.
  • Director's Bay
  • Perfectly suited for divers and snorkelers. This dive site landmark is an old decaying shark fence now covered in corals and sponges.
  • Lost Anchor
  • A favorite Curacao Dive Site, bright and colorful. A beautiful lush wall covered with gorgonians and sea fans. Dense coral growth hides an anchor chain that keeps on going forever.
  • Jan Thiel
  • A typical Curacao diving spot starting at a sandy plateau going down on a sloping reef. The best treat at the end of the dive will be the curious school of squid looking directly into your eyes.
  • Sandy's Plateau
  • Gorgonians and hard corals, and everything in between. An excellent dive site to spot lobsters under the overhangs and crabs hiding in the large barrel sponges.
  • Rolling Stone
  • Next to Hole 17 and 5 at Blue Bay Golf Course. These are 2 fun dive sites to search and collect golf balls during your safety stop.
  • Saba
  • The small tugboat that sits in the shallows is called Saba, and it’s only at 5 meters/15 ft.
  • Divers Leap
  • At this dive site, you may have the possibility to do a great drift dive, flying while enjoying the reef scene in front of you.
  • Tugboat
  • This famous tugboat wrecked just a few yards offshore in a protected bay. Perfect site for divers as well as snorkelers.
