When we came to The Dive Bus we immediately encountered friendly and opened welcome and right sense of humor. During all few days of diving we got enough attention and all our needs were met right :-) We didn't feel only like paying customers. There was also professional attitude and reasonable prices. We did several dives with them and all... More

My daughter and I walked from the Sunscape resort to The Dive Bus (5) minutes. We were greeted instantly by Mark and Suzi. We had NEVER dove before. We were scheduled for a Discover Diving lesson with Gareth. Because of his patience, kindness and humor, we dove 3 more times after that. It was one of the most amazing and... More

If you are coming to Curaçao and want to go diving, look no further than The Dive Bus. Mark, Suzi, Carlos, Gareth and Mieks are phenomenal. They are friendly, fun loving, courteous and professional. I have dived multiple places in the Caribbean and the Pacific and this is the best experience I have had 'bar' none. I was here on... More

Dive Bus was just walking distance from Sunscape Resort, so we opted to book a few shore dives with Dive Bus. Mark, Carlos, and Gareth were open, friendly, and welcoming. The price was reasonable too. We booked 2 shore dives, but would have liked to have booked a few more, but no openings were available at the time. That was... More

I just went scuba diving for the first time and had a fantastic experience. Gareth was the instructor and did an excellent job. He patiently (and humorously) made sure I learned all I needed and practiced it on land and in shallow water before going for my dive. It was so beautiful and other-wordly. Thank you Dive Bus!

We had a wonderful Open Water Certification experience with The Dive Bus this past week; very safe, very thorough, and really fun. My two daughters and I are brand new to SCUBA diving and did our theory and confined water (pool) work near home and then went to Curacao to complete the Open Water certification. I was an anxious new... More

I chose The Dive Bus for my wife and two teenage sons to receive their open water certification. I had each of them do eLearning on PADI's website and The Dive Bus was the perfect combination to manage their controlled water and open water training. We had an awesome experience working with our instructor. Very professional and they really took... More

It's about time...this is my first Dive Bus review, however we have been there several times starting back in 2006. Mark and Suzy are the best, and we always have a great time and great dives. We would choose no other dive shop around. Eco friendly, fun loving, just all around a great time every time. I don't know what... More

We became open water PADI certified July 2012. Since then, we completed only 13 dives. We live in the US, not near a beach, and dive once or twice a few (usually three) times a year while on vacation. I easily get motion sick so when we do dive, we most often do a 1-tank dive. I was interested in... More
