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

I have never been on a submarine before. So, it was a new experience for me. there is plenty of pacific flora that you can see. Also you can schools of fishes passing by. But when they send their divers to feed the fishes, they are all over the boat. So, plenty to photo ops

In the free weekend on this island during my stay I did 15 dives. I was alone and had no buddy. I have dived with Ocean Encounters on Lion Dive and Scuba Do Jan Thiel. Both dive centers are professional and offers a great variety of diving programs. During my stay I also met two brothers who runs "TwinDivers" center... More

Loved the ship wrecks and the coral fields off of Piscadera Bay. Saw lots of colorful fish, as well as Octopus and Moray eels. The water has a steep drop off about 50 feet off shore, and there were many new corals growing near shore. Great snorkeling experience!
