I rarely write reviews, but Scubacao is incredible and merits the time and appreciation of an exceptional review. Starting with the basics: they are extremely knowledgeable and talented divers. We went on four different types of dives (beach, night, and two-tank boat dive). Things were always seamless because each dive master was very experienced (eg during the beach dive, there was a sudden change of weather. Our dive masters Carolina and Cecilia kicked into gear, calmly and skillfully, so we never had to worry and it was just another fun story). They were always well prepared (eg on the night dive, we wanted to try a particular type of fluorescent night dive. Carolina (who owns Scubacao with her husband JP) was completely supportive, but also brought alternative equipment because she suspected we weren't going to love it. Sure enough, we switched underwater to a traditional night dive after the first 1/3 of the of the dive). Their knowledge and dedication to customer service began at the outset. I began working with Carolina when I was sourcing a dive shop before our trip. Through numerous emails and phone calls, Carolina was always patient and helped me understand the pros and cons of many different dive locations (as we were trying to whittle down the options), come up with a schedule that worked for the rest of our vacation, and then work on pricing. What I learned early was that everything they did was with joy and a smile, and nothing was an inconvenience. Even our significant dietary restrictions was never a bother. And they also always helped us with gear without any hesitation (and on numerous occasions!). Even filling out our dive logs after each dive was an enthusiastic event, no matter how long a day they had already had. Then, beyond diving, they were always happy to share recommendations of things to do/see/eat for a local's perspective. It made our trip even more special. We highly recommend Scubacao, and hopefully you will get to dive with Carolina, Celia and/or JP too!

Our first time diving in Curaçao and the Scubaco team made it awesome! It also happened to be my wife’s first open water dive after getting her certification and our guide, Mats made the whole day absolutely incredible. From the getting the gear set up, to the trip out to the boat, the dives themselves and our return, what a day. Mats went above and beyond to make it memorable, he even stopped on the way home to buy us coco friu (fresh, cold coconuts to drink)! We booked the dives via email several months out and the team did a great job communicating with us right up u til we arrived. They even picked us up at our hotel! This is truly personalized service and I can t say enough good things about this shop! If you want to dive in Curaçao, then these guys are your go to shop!

We booked a 2 tank dive with Scubacao during our cruise to the ABC islands and we really enjoyed our dives with them. We would both come back together or separately to dive with them (and Carolina) again. She picked us up from the port and took us to the shop where we rented the rest of our gear (we only brought some of it on the long trip). Carolina picked two really good spots to dive and assisted us with the equipment and gave a really good briefing for each location. We saw lion fish, a flying gurnard, turtles, seahorse, small eel, large tarpon, many trumpet fish, angel & parrot fish, and abundant and varied coral formations. It was really good diving and I would highly recommend diving with Carolina. She was excellent!!!

First dive in about 10 years . I went with my sister in law (also about 10 years since last dive ) and we did the refresher course , It was perfect !!! "Mamma" was great so patient and made us feel so comfortable . Dives were amazing . Would recommend Scubacao 100% We arrived on a cruise ship and Chris picked us up on time and gave us a little history of the island on our way to the shop. Very relaxing fun experience . Side note I screwed up the dates and Chris was able to accommodate us which was huge considering we had a limited window to dive. Thank you Thank you Thank you

My girlfriend and I originally planned to spend a few days in the East side of the Island before moving lodgings to dive Watamula and some of the West side dive sites. We signed up with Scubacao to start the trip and left it open in case we wanted to switch dive shops. Our dive master and guide JP, his wife, Carolina, and crew made us so comfortable that we ended up diving with them for the whole week.

We started our week by telling JP what sites we intended on hitting. He created a weekly itinerary to accommodate all of our requests. We told him where we wanted to go and he made it happen. Flexible scheduling and rides from our Air BNB, made Scubacao an outstanding choice. It was amazing to dive in a small group with a knowledgeable and professional guide. We did 6 shore dives and 4 boat dives.

We started at Double Reef and Tugboat on the first day. Although conditions weren't perfect at Double Reef, it was nice to get our feet wet and get reacquainted with diving. (It had been a year since our last time diving in D.R.) We saw a dozen or so green turtles sleeping among the healthy reef. Next, we went to Tugboat for an awesome dive with upside-down fish, a shade of blue that I've never seen before in my life, a shipwreck, triggerfish, and a school of about 9 squid.

By the end of the trip, we had explored Double Reef, Tugboat, Smokies, Katie's Paradise, Porto Marie x 2, Playa Piskadoo, Playa Kalki, Watamula, & The Mushroom Forest (Ft. The Blue Room).

JP gave us guided tours below and above the surface. While driving to the shore entrance to dive sites, he informed us of the history of the island and the Venezuelan oil refinery, the Shell Corporation's road to Tugboat, and other general local tips as to where to eat or buy groceries.

With another lockdown looming in NYC & US, we were very tempted to stay for a few extra months. We are very appreciative of our guides - and new friends- and we can't wait to go back and visit Scubacao again.

We were on a cruise that stopped in Curaçao so we booked a two tank shore dive with Scubaçao. Mats picked us up at the Starbucks near the cruise terminal on time and was very pleasant and accommodating of all our needs. He was also our Dive Master- He lined up two very different dives and didn’t rush through either of them, giving us plenty of time to take in all of the beautiful coral and fish. Whenever we come back to Curaçao, we will always book our dives through Scubaçao.

I have been diving for over 25 years. This was our first visit to Curacao. My brother and his wife who are divers as well tagged along for the trip. I had originally posted a question about dive shops in Curacao in the Curacao visitors forum. I had a pleasant response by Carolina (Caro) within minutes. After doing some research, I realized their dive shop wasnt at a specific location/dive site as are most of the dive shops on the island so I saw flexibility with their shop as far as being able to travel as they were centrally located. We stopped by our first day and JP one of the owners greeted us with a huge smile. Caro came in shortly after and it was as if i had known then for 20 years. We picked up the gear we needed (they have absolutely everything) and headed out for our first two shore dives that were recommended by JP and Caro. We were not disappointed. We had some absolutely amazing dives with Scubacao the 10 days we were there. My hobby is underwater photography and the different types of sea life we encountered with Caro is what you see on National Geographic documentaries. It was absolutely surreal. My youngest son who is 13 and autistic has been wanting to "snuba" as he calls it for a couple of years. On two different occasions, Caro took the time to take my son alone and allow him to breath off of her octopus (extra regulator) and took him around a couple of different dive sites. As a father, to see the compassion and caring that Caro showed was everything. She was patient, kind and took the time to let my son experience what it was like to dive. I have never in 25 years of diving and several thousand dives had an experience as I have had with Scubacao. They are a first class operation with owners who genuinely care about their clients. Our experience with their entire team (Caro, JP and Mats) was memorable enough we are booking our second trip back in December because it was THAT memorable. I can be very critical of businesses as I am a business owners but I can tell you without question, this is the dive shop/business you want to use in Curacao. They treat you like family, not a number walking through the door and were VERY communicative in every aspect. Caro and JP, on behalf of my entire family I want to thank you for everything and the memories you helped create. Words cannot express the gratitude that we feel towards Scubacao.
If you are a diver... and you are going to Scubacao, you owe it to yourself (and family if they are diving with you) to work with the Scubacao team. You will not be disappointed.

Just magical, when I came up from our second dive I turned to my wife and said that is the reason we dive! We booked a two tank dive last minute and they were so professional in their approach and delivered on two spectacle dives. First dive we saw a Seahorse, second dive 5 turtles, 8 large tarpons and the dive instructor MADS was one of the best we have ever had. Showed a real interest in us as a family group, passion for diving and for Curacao, We could not ask for anything more. THANK YOU and we will certainly dive with you again. (My wife and I are Master Scuba Divers, and our two teenagers are advanced open water).

We were diving five days. One if these days we had a boat trip to Watamula and Mushroom forrest.
First days we were out with Jp.
The hole teams is very friendly and entertaining. They picked us up from the Hotel and we could dive during our vacation when ever we have asked via WhatsApp. Based on the booked dives we had an package which reduced the price.
Each time we were at a different dive spots which was awesome.
Corals and the hole under water world is totally amazing. Thanks to the team to show us this incredible wildlife.
