E-mailed a few times prior to our arrival (on Friday Aug. 8th) to schedule our children on the discovery dive (for Monday Aug 11th)- when we arrived I went to double check the reservation for our children and it was not booked. They ended up getting the kids scheduled for Wed. Aug. 13th and we were leaving the 15th- they... More

I rented gear and my boyfriend used his own. They had us come a day prior to our scheduled dive to test our gear before we left port.. they let... More

i choose Curacao for our vacation for two reasons. First, it is out of the huricane belt which is important for a summer vacation and second it had a reputation for good diving. We coose the reort we stayed at, the Sunscape, because Ocean Encounters ran the dive operation and they had an excellent reputation. I was not disapointed. The... More

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
