My wife & I (advanced divers with 100 & 90 dives respectively) went to Curacao and Aruba as part of a thirtieth anniversary trip. We dived in both locations with different dive operators. We were very impressed with Ocean Encounters as opposed to the other unnamed operator in Aruba. The other operator is also a well known large operation, but... More

What a great experience! Whilst improving my skills and working on OW and AOW I had the pleasure of some wonderful dives. The staff is very pleasant, has excellent instruction skills and makes every dive special. A definite stop on every trip to Curacao!

We pre-booked seven 2 x tank boat dives through our UK Tour operator Bonaire Fun Travel (who were brilliant travel company!!). Although we had reserved specific days they were very flexible when we wanted to change which days we were diving. We did a check dive (free of charge) on the house reef. Entry on and off the pier was... More

For my wife and my wife it was the first time. We never dived before. The team was very friendly and patient. Our beginners course was easy to understand and comprehensible. So we can recommend the Ocean Encounters Diving on Curacao. It was great.

The Ocean Encounters team were excellent. They were completely focused on safety and providing an outstanding dive experience. Whether you do the Lionfish Hunt (we caught 79), local dive sites, or the all day trip to Little Curacao you will enjoy yourself. The entire team was knowledgeable, skilled, and a lot of fun. Don't hesitate to book multiple trips with... More

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
