As a TripAdvisor year over year achievement winners; Mark & Suzy are the best people anywhere, hands down (or hands up and party like you just don't care; your choice); but the only choice in diving should be with The Dive Bus in Curacao. Their shore diving experience on the island with small groups continues to be the cornerstone to... More

Once again it was a blast diving with "The Dive Bus" in Bonaire. Great divers, great friends, great fun. As always, well organized and relaxing!! I would encourage anyone who is thinking about diving in Curacao to hook up with The Dive Bus. You won't find a better group to dive with, and you will absolutely enjoy your experience.

Chose to dive with the Dive Bus based on TripAdvisor reviews, and glad we did. A short taxi ride from the cruise port, and we were at the shop. We chose to do two guided dives of the Piersbaai Reef and Car Pile. Our guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and we saw some amazing sites in the reef ranging from... More

Me and my wife Dove with the Dive Bus in Mid April. We did our open water referral dives to complete our Open water certification. Our training was both fun and complete as they had us do all the skills and do them correctly. We did a bus trip after we were certified to the tugboat location with 6 certified... More

The Dive Bus provided friendly, efficient service and an excellent dive. The Dive Bus would be suitable for a beginner or an experienced diver. The price was reasonable, the facilities and equipment were of good quality and the location is convenient. I would recommend the Dive Bus to anyone.

This is definitely the best diving company on Curacao! As we were located in the hotel next to The Dive Bus (Atlanta Beach Hotel) it was logical that we dropped by for some information about the dives. Me and my boyfriend both have our Padi Open Water but we only dive during holidays. The Dive Bus "office" immediately looks like... More
