Just returned from a dive trip to Curacao and the highlight was our experience with Ocean Encounters. Each team member was friendly, knowledgeable and prioritized safety. While we had wished to go out to some further dive sites and were not able to do so due to an insufficient number of divers interested to similarly do so, each morning we... More

I led a dive group trip to Sunscape Curaçao and dove with Ocean Encounters. I have nothing but positive things to say! From the land based staff (Angeles and company) to the boat captains (Pol & Brian) to the DM's, everyone was friendly, professional, and very helpful. The dive boats are modern and well maintained. Don't miss out on doing... More

My son needed to finish his Advance Open Water course which he had started on Bonaire (3 dives). It looked like he had to do all over again but after a short consultation with the staff we managed to for him to finish his course in 1 day (2 dives and exams).

I've spend 8 days diving with ocean encounters and I'm very grateful to all the staff. Very professional and kind. They make you feel comfortable and they have lived up all my best expectations. Special thanks to Pol and Jeremiah but also to everyone. Many thanks.

In short: it was great fun, learning and diving with ocean encounters. I was ver well looked after and they gracefully coped with my follies. I took the PADI Open water cert, the NITROX cert and started on my AOW, all in short order. Additionally I took a couple of dives. No great sweat for Ocean Encounters. They furnished me... More

Booked the scuba diving with dolphins through this company. Never had we been scuba diving so we had the training class before. The instructor was very nice and patient with us.

Thank you for your visit and review. A Discover Scuba Dive is a way to get a taste of diving and learn the basic skills before the Dolphin Scuba Encounter. I hope you will try again on your next visit to Curacao. Best regards, Zyta de Koeijer Manager More

I did the dolphin dive at ocean encounters. Started off good with a good explanation. I did noticed one thing from the start, what a lot of people, 10 to be exact.
