We had 4 very good dive trips. Shop's operations are efficient and no problem there. However, after we tried a different shop, we realized that there is a shortcoming - Dive Bus makes 2-tank dive at the same spot just taking different swim directions. Other shops change locations between tanks so you could see more.

The staff at The Dive Bus are extremely professional, helpful, and accommodating. We chose to use them over the onsite dive operator at the Sunscape Resort, and are thankful we did. All their dives are organized with small groups. They go out of their way to provide you with anything you may request. I look forward to returning to Curacao... More

The staff with The Dive Bus was very nice, helpful, and accommodating. After having several delays in our plans, we finally made it the The Dive Bus. Even though we missed our morning reservation, they made time for us in the afternoon, which I didn't expect. We were able to get two dives in before they closed. We will be... More

being a PADI pro, one could argue that I do look at different things than just having a laugh while diving. But this team sure is good: very professional, very passionate, totally organized and providing proper / new equipment; something not always seen in the world. The house reef is great for any dive: deep, shallow, night, day and the... More

My sister and I researched and visited three of the top rated 5-Star Padi centers in Curacao and decided to go with The Dive Bus. I am a beginner diver, but my sister has over 150 dives under her belt in many parts of the world and knew exactly what kind of dive company she was looking for: The Dive... More

We spend 2 weeks in Curaçao in early November and dove with the Dive Bus. These dives were my first diving experiences. I did my open water and advanced open water certification there. From the time we arrived at The Dive Bus, we were received and treated like family by Suzy, Mark and Zoe. We had brought our gears and... More

As a newly certified diver and my first real dives, The Dive Bus staff was incredibly helpful, patient, kind and understand. I had three fantastic dives with them. The team was welcoming, funny and a pleasure to be around. I would tell anyone to dive with them!

I've been diving and teaching diving for over 20 years and with over 300 tropical dives under my belt, I can honestly say that the Dive Bus gets it. They make fun, what so many others make entirely too ridged and stiff. In a sport where safety is paramount, diving too often falls victim to the pressures of ego and... More
