The trip is an excellent way to spend a day. Yes, it is expensive but you get a worthwhile return. The crew has a great attitude and the set up is perfect to enjoy a relaxing day on a remote and great beach with a don't worry about anything attitude. The crew alway has you covered. The beach house is... More

We booked an all-inclusive trip to Klein Curacao on the m/v Mermaid. Easy to book, easy to find on the pier of Caracasbaai and smooth boarding. I know we had to be on time because the captain leaves early at 7:00 AM sharp ! The ship is nice and clean and well equipped. On boarding we could get coffee. I... More

When visiting Curacao you definitely need to put this boat trip on your to-do list. Klein Curacao is one of the nicest islands I've ever seen, with an old light house, clear water and white sand. They offer you enough shadow places with sun loungers, snorkeling equipment and a delicious breakfast and barbecue as well as an exciting boat trip.... More

What a great day trip! Mermaid did a wonderful job and it was a perfect day! Started out early with coffee and tea on the way over to Klien. Heard that it may be rough sailing and heard about many passengers getting seasick. If you are prone to seasickness, take something for it. We were very lucky the day we... More

My fiancé and I recently stayed in Curaçao for a week. On our last day we booked a trip with Mermaid to Klein Curaçao. They picked us and another couple up from our hotel, the Marriott, for a small fee. It is necessary to mention the rough ride (roughly 1.5-2 hours long) over to Klein Curaçao. We read many reviews...

We did this tour on a Sunday. The transport to and from the boat was well arranged, friendly and very safe. The boat was impressive and very clean. The ride to ‘Klein Curacao’ however was a difficult one. Pay attention, you can get really sick on this one. We are used to boat trips but during this one both of... More

we waited too long to find a tour operator to take us to Klein Curacao, and totally lucked out that this operator still had room to take us on two days' notice. $8 extra fee for a round-trip shuttle from our resort. We had no idea how lucky we were! Mermaid has a permanent installation on Klein Curacao with lots... More
