Beautiful wall dive just a short swim or boat ride right in front of the shop. David our dive master was awesome and the whole team. Lots of sea life and coral my wife and I will be back. We dived Bonaire earlier in the week which is beautiful also but this area was spectacular.

After about one hour boatride we came to a spot where in 10-20 m depth thousands of colourful fish raise their youngsters. This is a spot which I considered even better than Klein Curacao. Definitely something I would recommend any scuba-diver to see.

Fantastic. The reception was very... More

Signed up for 2 boat dives and the animal encounters session. Crew were exceptionally friendly and continuously ask if they could ask to help. Dive Master David C was awesome. Wonderful experience and plan to return in the future. Would recommend to anyone that dives.

Finished my advanced open water course at Ocean Encounters with David B. (my instructor). They were flexible in meeting my requests for scheduling the dives. The entire Ocean Encounters team is fantastic, but David B. stands out as being the best instructor I have ever had. We did the deep dive and navigation dive, the only two I still needed... More

The Ocean Encounters Diving staff did a great job of arranging a fabulous week of diving. We were lead to dive sites with plenty of lionfish and lots to see allong the way. Besides lionfish we say eels turtles lobsters and plenty more. the reefs were in good shape but the fish population had been impacted by the lionfish. The... More
