I've made many dives in the clear and warm waters of Curacao, many of them from a boat. If you like boats, there are numerous dive companies to choose from. But Curacao is one of those places where you really don't need a boat because the most beautiful reefs are just a few steps away from the beach. And if... More

What a crew - Light, Lively & Fun - Suzy and Mark go out of their way to make sure you have the very best dive possible. Corals, fish, octopus and a video to document your dive. Lesson for the new diver is very thorough, straight out of the PADI Certification book all the way. No matter what your level... More

My wife and I were in Curacao for the day on the Carnival Breeze and we were looking to do some diving. Before leaving on our trip I did some research trying to see who we wanted to dive with. After reading many blogs I decided to go with The Dive Bus. I emailed them explaining we wanted to rent... More

Husband and I stopped in to do a final shore dive towards the end of our stay in Curacao and found the Dive Bus. Mark was extremely friendly and made you feel very comfortable in his shop. Rented tanks, suite, etc. and he gave excellent recommendations on the shore across the street. Perfect dive. Lots of great coral and fish.... More

We managed to squeeze in a dive on Curacao at the last minute. They bent over backward to provide gear on very short notice. And it was great gear too. They were also very friendly, knowledgeable and helpful. Can't wait to come back and dive with them again. And the prices were outstanding.

Awesome experience! Went on the discover diving trip with Mark and experienced diving for the first time. He was so helpful, when the anxiety hit and helped me overcome my fear and go through with it! Awesome! I was so glad, I trusted him to get me down safely and bring me back in one piece and breathing ;-) I... More

We were a group of 6. 3 beginners (1st timers) 2 certified and a dive master. They accomodated all of us. Safety is 1st and foremost, but it didn't prevent us all having a great time. The atmosphere is perfect, the ocean a short walk across the street, a photogrpher accompanied us to record the dives and expert instruction. Simply... More

My husband and I have chosen Dive Bus each time we go to Curacao, and each time we are blown away by the knowledgeable, friendly, personal, funny, irreverent presences of Mark and Suzy and the just general all around chill vibe. They don't just take you on great dives and teach you new skills - they take care of you!... More

I did a DSD followed with a PADI Scuba Diver course with The Dive Bus and it was fantastic. Great people who are both professional and fun, plus a fabulous reef at their doorstep. Thanks, Mark, Carlos & Susie!
