OUR FAVOURITE DIVE SPOTS
We love to share our favourites with you! It was a hard choice between all the great spots, but here goes;
The Mushroom Forest
It’s not really a forest, and they aren’t really mushrooms; this famous dive spot boasts coral formations that have hardened into shapes that resemble mushrooms. The Blue Room, a cavern filled with the mushrooms, is also popular for snorkelers.
The Superior Producer
The Superior Producer sank off the coast of Curacao more than 40 years ago, and now the cargo ship is covered with coral and orange cup sponges. Be careful, though — giant barracudas swim slowly around the wreck, keeping their eyes on divers. At 100 feet, this dive is only for the most experienced divers, and it’s only available when no cruise ships are in port.
For great photo opportunities, check out Directors’ Bay, where you’ll spot seahorses, eels, tons of coral, and even a resident octopus. A decaying shark fence now covered with coral makes a colorful home for the sea life. Snorkelers can take in a great view from the surface, making this a perfect trip for a group of clients at different comfort and certification levels.
