I was recently in Curacao for 12 days and completed my PADI certification with Ocean Encounters out of their Lions Dive Resort location. I did multiple dives with them after finishing my open water dives and loved every one. They are very organized and professional with excellent equipment available for rent. The staff is fantastic, extremely knowledgeable and patient with... More

My wife and I took a snorkeling trip to the sunken tug boat. There is plenty of fish and small corals to see. You will go along with the divers, of course they will go deaper. But the tug boat is only about 3 meters down, so perfect for snorkeling. My wife is no a swimmer and they allowed her... More

While staying at the Santa Barbara Resort in Curacao, I took a snorkeling excursion with Ocean Encounters, booked through the resort. I must say that I had an amazing time. The cost was $83 USD, and worth every penny to me. We left the resort at approximately 10 am, and we took a nice boat ride around in the cove,... More

I gotta say I love the staff at OE. They have been as helpful as they could be. From the moment we booked our trip and scheduled our dives via email it was easy! Once there the check in was smooth and then the day of our dives getting equipment was easy and everyone there wants to make sure you... More

Recently got back from a trip to Sunscapes Curacao, and dove with Ocean Encounters for 5 days and a shore night dive... I honestly can say that the staff here are all about giving you a phenomenal experience... Yes, the boat can be a little full at times, but they honestly work to make it as easy as possible... Each... More

This Dive shop is outstanding! Definitely better than a 5 Star rating in our book ... My wife and I just returned from a week long dive trip on the island of Curaçao with a group of 22 divers from our local dive shop in Ohio. Our experience level of divers ranged from the first time in the ocean, to... More

I had a wonderful time diving with this operation out of the sunscape resort. A total of 8 dives: 4 from shore and 4 from a boat. The reef I'd healthy will t h plenty to see. The dive guides have an eye to spot critters and a los to assist any beginner. Among the highlights for me were: cleaning... More

We booked the activity based on having done the Ocean Encounters Scuba Encounter for non-certified divers about 8 years ago and had a great experience (before the sea park was remodeled to make room for more dolphin activities, etc.). We were excited to find that the scuba encounter was open for business so we decided to try it again. It... More

This is a really well-organized dive operator. The shop is next to the hotel, and the staff were excellent. The dive masters were multi-lingual, from many countries (Brazil, Argentina, US, Netherlands, etc) and very laid back. They told stories and gave tips on where to go to view Carnaval parade, great dive spots on other islands, etcs. One dive master... More
