We knew we wanted to scuba dive but we weren't sure where. We were at Mambo Beach and were very close to diving with Ocean Encounters, but they're were closing up and I (thankfully) decided to check out Dive Bus the next morning. I don't remember the prices exactly, but Ocean Encounters was more expensive and they do allow for... More

I was fortunate to be able to spend a few days in Curacao as a last minute trip. I had no real plans other than to enjoy my time on the island. I had previously done some discover dives so thought it would be fun to get certification. I checked in with a few other dive centers but no one... More

I brought a group which consisted of experienced divers to those needing open water certification and snorkelers. Not an easy group to satisfy. The Dive bus came highly recommended through my scuba club and exceeded all expectations. They were incredibly friendly and patient while we worked through the details beforehand. The tailored trips fit all our different needs and the... More

I recently went on 3 days of 2 tank dives while vacationing in Curacao and this was my first time diving with the Dive Bus. I chose them because I was looking for small groups and relaxed dives, and they absolutely delivered. I went diving with Nanne and Zoe; they were both excellent, and patiently answered my questions and taught... More

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

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.
