After over 20 years of no scuba diving, my husband recertified his license at the Dive Bus and has been busy most weekends, exploring the island's other terrain, under the sea. He likes the people he meets and the team at the Dive Bus have one objective.. Diving safely and having fun at the same time.

Awesome. I booked at the last minute via Skype with the dive bus. The staff of the dive bus accomated my tight schedule. I explained to them my son and I were beginner divers and they took the extra time to make us feel comfortable before entering water. The dive itself was great. Exotic fish, eels, coral, just a overall... More

A very safe and customer service focused dive shop. This was our third year diving with The Dive Bus. Historically we prefer to boat dive, in 2013 we decided to try shore diving at The Dive Bus. We have been very impressed and pleased with the quality of the sites, condition of the coral/sponges and the abundance of marine life.... More

The Dive Bus Shore Diving in Curacao with Darren Picknell as our dive master was an excellent experience. My 12 year old, Mattie, is new to diving and I have not been diving much the last decade. Darren was extremely patient, caring and careful with both of us. I was worried about diving because of the strong winds and current... More

Great dive company- keeps the dive groups small which makes it a lot of fun and more personal attention. Gives you the feel of a mom and pop business. Everything was well organized including personal bins stored at the shop with your gear for multiple days of diving, and staff even takes the time to put away your wet equipment... More
