This was my first scuba diving visit to Curaçao, and I couldn’t have been more impressed with The Dive Bus. What a well-run, professional business, not to mention fun! Mark and Suzi are such friendly people, but that’s not all. Mark gave dive briefings before each dive and told us what we could expect to see. He also has a... More

I've been diving with the Dive Bus for the last couple of years. They are fun, professional and the give you the chance to discover different places to dive in Curaçao. I'll be diving again with them next November! This is becoming a tradition for me!

My husband is a diver, I am not. He went on three excursions with The Dive Bus crew, I tagged along on one of them and did some snorkeling, this was to Kokomo Beach, beautiful! We were staying at the Sunscape resort which is directly across the street, so we just walked to their shop which was very convenient. The... More

Jan 24 2015 The inimitable Cruise Liner "Queen Elizibeth " pulls into Curacao at 0800Hrs. I have been anxiously awaiting this moment as I have been fantasizing about Scuba Diving, and this port is the one place I know will be good. I am the first crewmember off the ship and I get in a van with several other crew... More

Dive Bus is one of the longest-reaching stationed diving schools on Curacao. They are original and have excellent diving instuctors. Prices and discounts are not clearly be careful with making appointments only the manager provides the final estimates. Lunch is very mediocre, stale bread and cheese crisps no drink included which is a pity.

We just finished a quick trip to Curacao; we planned it kind of late when we found we had a few free days and an itch to go diving. Our time was limited and even though we booked a bit on the late side, the Dive Bus did their usual admirable job and catered to what we wanted (except they... More

We chose The Dive Bus based on Trip Advisor reviews and they were even better than expected. We don't care for 'cattle boats' and their operation is so much better that there isn't even a boat! Really well done, small groups on guided shore dives with fun, expert divemasters who point out everything from the macro to the micro. We... More

We had a great experience with The Dive Bus. We took the Discover Scuba course with Zoe. Not only is the underwater world fantastic, but Zoe is an amazing instructor. Calm, friendly, knowledgeable and patient. We absolutely loved our time with The Dive Bus and experiencing the beautiful Curacao waters. If ever in Curacao again, we will definitely head back...

This was our second visit to Curacao for vacation and diving. Awesome dive shop! Best customer service! There is a great reef just across the street. Definitely would recommend The Dive Bus !! Can't wait to go again.
