Jump into spring with a great trip to sunny Curacao for amazing diving and coral restoration work!

Trip Leader: Kelly Dananay

 

Curacao is recognized as one of the best shore diving destinations in the world. Located right next door to Bonaire, the healthy reef system surrounding Curacao provides a relaxed yet exciting dive environment. Our custom built itinerary includes guided shore dives, unlimited shore diving, coral restoration work, and a night dive. This is a perfect arrangement for anyone pursuing continuing education courses, of course!

The reef ecosystem in Curacao is full of fascinating marine creatures such as schooling blue tangs, Caribbean lobster, huge green moray eels, friendly groupers, soaring eagle rays, and engaging damselfish. There is so much to see you will be on visual overload!

 

Our adventure also includes active coral restoration work with Reef Renewal Curacao where divers will learn about RRC’s coral work and then take that knowledge to tour and work in the coral restoration zones. This is is bound to be a rewarding and educational week of diving. It all wraps up with a BBQ social from our friends at The Dive Bus to celebrate the ocean!
