We arrived and were immediately made to feel like family... one great big crazy family! Marc & Suzy were a blast and the crew was just as fun and crazy. Each trip was... More

We had the chance to dive with the great crew at the Dive Bus on April 2nd. They are a fantastic group of people and it was a BEAUTIFUL dive. They were very helpful and organized, and were able to take care of the 4 extra divers we "found" on the cruise that wanted to join us!!!

If you are looking into discovering the beauties of the underwater world or if you are a passionate diver, you should experience The Dive Bus. Your safety is their mission. The whole team makes you feel at home and as if you are among family. I could write a lot more but it all boils down to: They are THE... More

I made a last-minute trip (literally booked the tickets two days before departure) to Curacao to satisfy an ocean diving need. It had been over a year since I dove in the ocean last and I needed to get out of town and experience some warm water. Mark and the group at The Dive Bus were gracious enough to squeeze... More

Great dive today on the house reef. The reef is in great condition. Darren was great, great patience with my other half who has never dived before. Would definitely recommend to others.

We knew we wanted to scuba dive but we weren't sure where. We were at Mambo Beach and were very close to diving with Ocean Encounters, but they're were closing up and I (thankfully) decided to check out Dive Bus the next morning. I don't remember the prices exactly, but Ocean Encounters was more expensive and they do allow for... More

Dived with Dive Bus for three weeks, 23 dives - a mix of guided and independent. After checking out a dive centre just up the road and found the crew seemingly disinterested, we next visited Dive Bus - what a difference! The friendly, relaxed and attentive greeting meant that within minutes we knew we were in the right place. All... More

I was fortunate to be able to spend a few days in Curacao as a last minute trip. I had no real plans other than to enjoy my time on the island. I had previously done some discover dives so thought it would be fun to get certification. I checked in with a few other dive centers but no one... More

I brought a group which consisted of experienced divers to those needing open water certification and snorkelers. Not an easy group to satisfy. The Dive bus came highly recommended through my scuba club and exceeded all expectations. They were incredibly friendly and patient while we worked through the details beforehand. The tailored trips fit all our different needs and the... More
