My wife and I went snorkelling at Tugboat and were fortunate to meet Mark from the Dive Bus. Watching him with his divers convinced me that his company was what I was looking for in Curaçao. I did four dives with them - two at the house beach and 2 at Director's Bay. Marks wife Suzy spent time with me... More

While preparing for a 2 week dive vacation to Curacao with members of my close family, I wrote an email inquiry to the Dive Bus, which was answered the same day. We arrived on... More

I did some dives with the Dive Bus while staying on Curacao. The team is just great and very helpful. They arranged pick-up and drop off for us and also shared some good tips for the area. Diving was also fun: small groups of 2-3 people and our dive master made sure we got to see all the cool places... More

I've made many dives in the clear and warm waters of Curacao, many of them from a boat. If you like boats, there are numerous dive companies to choose from. But Curacao is one of those places where you really don't need a boat because the most beautiful reefs are just a few steps away from the beach. And if... More

What a crew - Light, Lively & Fun - Suzy and Mark go out of their way to make sure you have the very best dive possible. Corals, fish, octopus and a video to document your dive. Lesson for the new diver is very thorough, straight out of the PADI Certification book all the way. No matter what your level... More

My wife and I were in Curacao for the day on the Carnival Breeze and we were looking to do some diving. Before leaving on our trip I did some research trying to see who we wanted to dive with.
