Curacao is a great place to go diving and this group keeps you diving! They are on the Sunscape Resort property which makes it incredibly convenient. They had a couple rooms to hang your gear so it could drive out between dives. They do a 2 tank dive in the morning and a shallow one tank in the afternoon. There... More

While in Curacao, I did my first ever dive with Ocean Encounters. I was a bit nervous being the first time, and a bit scared of the depths, but they made it really comfortable. It was just 3 of us for the Discover Scuba session, and I was the only first-timer, so the instructor (Yvonne) took extra care to make... More

I used Ocean Encounters for two different experiences. I did my enriched air nitrox certification with them, and my son and I did the Animal Encounters at the Sea Aquarium. First, my EAN certification was such a breeze. I ordered online a couple days before we left for our trip. Received my PADI e-Learning code the next day. Took about... More

The dive center and the dive masters was ok. The diving it self was also good but not more than that. But I´m a satisfied customer and would not hesitate to go diving with the same crew again.

My friend and I went to Curacao for some sight-seeing, and we stumbled upon Ocean Encounters when we looked for a place to go snorkeling. The entire experience was well-polished and very much fun. From the sign-up phase, to the handling of the equipment, to the boat ride, to the snorkeling experience -- we felt safe, valued, and entertained. I... More

My two sons and I did three days of scuba diving with Ocean Encounters at Sunscape. The Staff was very accommodating in preparing our gear for each dive, and in providing free dry storage in preparation for next days diving. The diving experience was outstanding. The reef is in a very healthy state with its abundance of fish species and... More

Good dive asters and fairly healthy reef. We dove with them for almost two weeks on alternate days. Each day had a set schedule of dive sites so, for example, if we dove consecutive Monday's, we'd be diving the same sites. By alternating dive days we avoided this.
