Not only is the staff absolutely awesome, friendly and professional but Ocean Encounter Diving was definitely the highlight of our trip. After a short class on coral restoration by Dive Master Pol Bosch - he then guided us on a 10-15 minute dive to the 10 Stag Horn trees. We had the pleasure to help clean the trees and see... More

We went to Curacao last week. Some folks in our group took diving lessons, while we went snorkeling. The life forms we saw, and the explanations by the guides, were excellent. The guides were very knowledgeable, friendly, and dependable. Thank you.

Excellent operation, was on the Phoenix out of the Sunscape resort 6/21-26/15. Pol and his fellow dive professionals took excellent care of us. Probably one of the best operations I've had the pleasure to experience.

I have been on a number of dive trips over the years. The dive team at Ocean Encounters is as good as any I have seen. Safe, friendly, and fun! Excellent boats! First rate facilities, dock, and location within Sunscape Resort. Thorough knowledge of dive sites to fit the prevailing weather conditions. Underwater guides were first rate. Would not hesitate...

The staff at the dive shop were extremely helpful and the Divemasters and Captain of the boat were exceptional. They spotted Seahorses, Spotted Eagle Rays, numerous juvenile fish and made sure they pointed them out to us. Some of the dives had some current and they were quick to change the dive to a drift dive and Captain Charlie did... More

This was my first dive and first time diving in Curacao. Ocean Encounters is a professional, well organized, and well maintained dive operation. Due to flight cancellations and some hiccups with our travel plans we had to switch around our dive excursions last minute but Ocean Encounter's front desk staff was accommodating, patient and friendly. In particular I want to... More

Diving from June 20-26 with a pre-arranged group and really enjoyed diving with the staff. The Ocean Encounters staff are very safety conscious and ready to help anyone needing assistance before, during, and after the dives. The boat was well maintained, with holders for all tanks, step off from the stern with easy return via 2 ladders at the stern.... More

We had only 8 divers. The site were close and the dive master kept a good pace. They were casual yet attentive to safety and had O2 onboard. Both dives on air were right at 50 minutes. The first being at 60 ft. and next around 40 ft. The corals were a bit beat up and a saw some tires... More

Ocean Encounters did a great job. We would love to go back. The boats were roomy, clean and well organized. There was a head on board and that is always a very big plus. The staff on shore and on the boat did everything possible to make it a good experience. When one of our divers had a dive computer... More
