We checked off an item off our "Bucket List" and dove with a pair of dolphins in the open water for about 40 minutes. A momma and her 2 year old baby came out from the Sea... More

We did a dolphin dive with Ocean Encounters and it was amazing. These were the dolphins from the Dolphin Academy - the dolphins came with their trainers. They were super friendly and I got to touch them a couple of times. Amazing creatures and highlight of the whole trip. The reef was average if you have dove the Great Barrier... More

I have done diving trips with Ocean Encounters twice now and if / when I go back to Curacao I will definitely use them again. They are extremely professional, have great facilities and just give an overall pleasant diving experience. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to do some awesome diving!

The DMs were all fantastic!! Dive shop only rented 2mm shorties while the water is 79, wish I'd known that ahead. I was very cold all week. Dives were ok, and the better sites, Cline and Mushroom, cost extra. That's a bummer.

While in vacation in Curacoa my wife and I decided to try diving. The staff at Ocean Encounters was extremely polite and knowledgeable. Our instructor Brian was patient and made sure our experience was safe and fun. We are planning our next trip back to enjoy diving with Ocean Encounters. I highly recommend stopping by and getting your feet wet.... More

Great dive team!!!! Well organized are their dive office and their team on the boat. Boat, equipment and dive team were first rate. Both dives provided nice diversity of undersea life to admire and they had a professional photographer with us offering photos of our dive experience if you decided to purchase. Would highly recommend Ocean Encounters for anyone visiting... More
