We dove with Ocean Encounters in early August from their location at the Sunscape Resort. We found the Dive Shop staff to be very helpful and attentive. The dive boat was located at a the Lions Beach Resort just a 3 minute boat ride away so divers at Sunscape were picked up at 8:15 and then brought back to Lions... More

I had a stellar time with Ocean Encounters! Great boat crew with a heart for service and fun! I have 100 plus dives under my belt, and my fellow divers were all very experienced as well. The crew didn't treat us like a novices. They let us dive how we liked while bringing us to the local dive flavor of... More

My first ocean experience as a diver and it could not have been more pleasant. The crews were most helpful and the variety of dives made the experience all the more meaningful. Crew members were helpful and patience with the newbie getting everything together. We hope to return to Curacao again soon, and will be sure to book with Ocean... More

Our days in Curacao included planned dives with Ocean Encounters: their famed Animal Encounter dive as well as a boat trip to the "Tugboat" wreck. Prior to our animal encounter dive, OE asked that we [myself, husband Mike, and 10-year-old daughter Cori] do a beach dive in shallow lagoon behind shop, just to orient ourselves, check gear, etc. OE provided...

I dove with Ocean Encounters a number of days during the week of July 20 - 25. I was with a group of friends and we had the privilege of diving with Ingrid as our dive master on all the dives. Ocean Encounters is a very safety conscious and professional operation that I would highly recommend. Normal dives are scheduled... More

Dove with Close Encounters for 6 days on a recent trip to Curacao (stayed at Sunscape). 2 tank dives every morning. Typically needed to be on the boat between 8:30 and 8:45 a.m. (one late day - started at 10:30 a.m.). The crew was friendly and knowledgeable. Two divemasters were assigned to each boat (instead of the usual one). They... More

Great week. Your staff made the tasks of diving disappear (tank changes) and allowed the fun of diving to come through.

My group spent 6 wonderful days with Ocean Encounters Dive Masters and the Dive Teams at Sunscape Resort, and Lions Dive Resort. They exceeded our expectations in every way. Dive boats were on time each day. The boats and equipment were well maintained and of high quality. Adrian, our Captain, and our Dive Masters, Maurice (Mouse), and Ingrid were thorough... More

We spent 9 days diving with Ocean Adventures and we stayed at Sunscape which is a hub of theirs with the main shop and harbored boat dock about a half a mile away. The shop is open 8-5 and has a very small inventory of things and primarily serves as a dock to be picked up on, a place to... More
