I see ocean Encounters as a finely tuned machine, with staff performing at the highest level. That is a work ethic to be applauded! I appreciated the staff assistance with gear, entry, and re-boarding the boat after the dive, due to medical problems. This was offered with sincerity and not viewed as a nuisance by the crew. I appreciated the... More

This diveshop is located on the Sunscape Resort complex, and is right on the pier. The divemasters, Maurice and William, are both great and helpful. Frake, who captains the boat, is also very helpful. The diving is really nice with a lot of different kinds of soft coral to see. The reason I didn't give it 5 circles is because... More

I just can't say enough wonderful things about Ocean Encounters. This was our first dive trip as we are newly certified. All the dive masters kept a watchful eye on us along with the other divers. We did 11 dives in 5 days, wishing we could have done more. Our dive masters Juan, Maurice, Pol and William were the best,... More

This dive crew was fun to dive with and made sure our experience was smooth with an amazing corral reef tour. Marijka was the head dive master and was both fun to work with and amazing at finding the small stuff we all tend to miss. The rest of the crew was great too. The reef had wonderful diversity and...

I found Ocean Encounters to be professionally run and enjoyed all of my days on the boats with them. My intro dive was a bit unfortunate as the current was very intense and visibility was non-existent, however, they immediately credited me for that and all of my subsequent diving was without incident. The only reason I was somewhat reluctant to... More

This was also a return trip to Ocean Encounters and a few things have changed since 2011. As with our previous trip, we stayed about 20 minutes away at the Renaissance Curacao Resort & Casino, which I reviewed separately. We had to park ($3/day) close-by and walk to the shop. The dive staff was all very helpful and safe. They... More

I was anticipating an unforgettable experience when I planned to swim with the sting rays... but what I got what so far beyond that!!! I give this tour 100/100. Benjamin was informative, funny, patient and sweet. The pictures we got captured memories that I never want to forget. The sting rays were friendly and social (and not dangerous at all... More

I was in Curacao with my kids, ages 13 and 11. My 13 year old and I are PADI certified, but my 11 year old is not. Ocean Encounters offered the PADI discovery course which allowed my son to acquire a few skills and dive with a dive master off of the same boat that my 13 year old and... More

I dove here last November. The staff was very helpful as I had my family utilize all the services they offered , from my son doing discovery dives to my wife an daughter snorkeling and me diving, we pretty much covered all the bases with them. They were extremely busy when I was there but just like the pros they... More
