The snorkeling was pretty good but not what one might expect for a underwater park. There are several other snorkeling dives that are better in Curacao. Still, there were a wide variety of fish to identify and observe.

This aquarium is located 'within walking distance' (eastwards) of the popular Sunscape Hotel. However, we were pleased that we had a rental car on that day and could drive there. The entrance charge is a high $22 for non-residents, although we - as over-60s - could get in for half-price. The various small aquaria on display are not top-rate by... More

We walked from the Sunscape about a mile to the Marine Park (aquarium). There were quite a few aquariums to view several types of fish and they had two touching areas for people to touch sea creatures. There was a dolphin show which was nice to watch, but was a little too hot and very humid when we were there,... More

East of Willemstad, a taxi ride away lies the resort area by the Ciracao u/w Marine park. Ideal for divers and snorkelers alike, the entries are from boats or from the sandy shore. Quite safe for children and the elderly, the seawater has a lovely quality and colour. Fishes abound, lots of different sealife can be seen readily. For the... More

Please, go to "Ocean Encounters" and make a dive with them! If it will be you first time, don't doubt it! They are very good option for you. I made divings all around the world and Aruba, Bonaire and Curazao have an unbelievable underwater marine park!! Don't miss it please!!

This one is the three best preserved reefs of the Caribbean. This hard to reach reef, only by boat, should be protected above all costs. It's like an heritage to humanity we need to preserve for tomorrow. Once it's gone, it won't come back. Now we can still enjoy it and take care of. I've been a lucky diver that... More
