Diving and Snorkeling
Divers and snorkelers never seem to be able to stop talking about the beauty of Curaçao's underwater world. So it’s no surprise that Curaçao was chosen as a top 3 location for 'Best Snorkeling', 'Best Shore Diving' and 'Best Macro Marine Life' by the readers of Scuba Diving Magazine in their 2012 Reader's Choice Awards. The Mushroom Forest made the Top 100 List as one of the best dive sites, while Ocean Encounters was selected as one of the best dive operators.
The island offers 40 different dive areas, which cover 65 individual sites. And any of the best diving spots are within swimming distance from shore. Tour companies and dive shops offer all-inclusive dive packages, so all you need is your certification. Many resorts also have accessible reef formations.
