I went scuba diving in the marine park. There were many varieties of soft and hard coral and sponges. Some places had abundant fish, and other places had mostly coral and sponges. I was glad the reefs were in good shape; they make it clear not to touch anything, and it looks like people comply. We did see a lobster... More

Have made 4 trips to Curacao and have never been disappointed in the diving. There is a lot of fish life and the reefs are healthy.

This winter I spent three months diving in Tobago, Dominica, Curacao, and Bonaire. Without a doubt, the Curacao Marine Park is one of the best diving locations I have experienced in my 14 years of diving. Like Bonaire many of the sites are accessible for shore diving, but I only did boat dives. The reefs are healthy and I saw... More

This is a must see if you like sea creatures. The compound itself isn't that big and it's definitely not Sea World if that is what you were expecting. However they have a lot of educational shows that teach you about the behaviors of the sea lions, sharks, dolphins, sting rays, turtles and flamingos. There are aquariums with different species...

Not a lot to see and do unless you spend more money. Still worth a visit to see the shows and touch a sting ray.

Of course, the dolphin tank is too small and it is a kind of torture for them . Otherwise its a nice attraction and a fun afternoon for a family.

We enjoyed this attraction for an hour. It is located right on the coast which was a little depressing considering the dolphins are captive; however, kids will love it and it was very interactive.
