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!

I had a wonderful time. It was my first dive in over two years & Mark took excellent care of me. He is very patient & super knowledgeable, yet modest. I liked how he showed us what fish to look for during the dive & demonstrated the hand signs he'd use to point them out. He's also has a great... More

Awesome week of diving with Team Dive Bus. Great diving. Tons of sealife. They offer excellent service and go out of their way to make sure you get the most from your dive. Plus, just plain fun people.

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!
