Vacation in Curacao was great. Stay at Sunscape was nice with dive center on property. Staff was friendly and the food was good. Not to mention the diving... which was some of the best I've ever experienced. Became friends with some fellow divers. Will return, hopefully soon..........

This was a snorkeling animal encounter and feed. We took our 2 kids with us and had a BLAST! You start with a very thorough brief by Divemaster David C. He is VERY good with kids! He explained how to safely deal with all of the critters that we would be meeting. We started out in the center of the... More

During our week long stay at Sunscape the Ocean Encounters crew took awesome care of us and turned a good vacation into an excellent vacation. The crew at Sunscape, especially Pol, were amazing and ensured that we made the best decisions on diving and snorkeling excursions to maximize our time on the island. The scuba class we took with David... More

The staff at Ocean Encounters is the best- professional, courteous, helpful, and fun! From the divemasters (I'm talking about you, Carmichael and Ruth!) to the boat captains and the crew behind the counters at the shops, I had an experience that far exceeded expectations with each of them. With no hesitation I would recommend Ocean Encounters to anyone heading to... More

I went to Curaçao on a dive trip with my sister in October 2014, and since the resort that we selected was located right night to Ocean Encounters' main base on the island, they were our natural choice. My objective was to get my AOW and enriched air certification , my sister did her OW. On top of that we... More

The best dive centre I have dived with bar none. The operation is very well run with staff being attentive, friendly, courteous and efficient. The centre itself is clean and well maintained, you only have to look in the rental and maintenance area to see this, overseen by Papi who always had a smile and greeting. Lysa in the shop/counter...

We took 10 shore dives using unlimited tanks from Ocean Encounters. Our check-out dive was off the pier at the Hilton hotel and we dropped off the wall coming up to the beach at the Marriott, where the dive shop's other location is. Other than hotel junk and a landfill of champagne bottles on the ocean floor it was a... More
