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

We were on our honeymoon and I had just got my open water certification. My husband has been certified for 20 years and we were so excited to dive in Curaçao! We stayed at the Santa Barbara hotel and the entire staff at Ocean Encounters was so friendly and wonderful! Overall we dove a total of 5 times with this... 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

Pol from Spain gets 5 stars for taking an open water class that is probably fairly typical of how crazy things come together at a resort side scuba center. My husband took the Padi local referral class where we live. Unfortunately it was interrupted by my broken ankle, a serious snow storm then the flu but that's how Feb can... More

My wife & I (advanced divers with 100 & 90 dives respectively) went to Curacao and Aruba as part of a thirtieth anniversary trip. We dived in both locations with different dive operators. We were very impressed with Ocean Encounters as opposed to the other unnamed operator in Aruba. The other operator is also a well known large operation, but... More

What a great experience! Whilst improving my skills and working on OW and AOW I had the pleasure of some wonderful dives. The staff is very pleasant, has excellent instruction skills and makes every dive special. A definite stop on every trip to Curacao!
