Just finished 5 days of diving with The Dive Bus. I am sometimes skeptical when reviews I read on here are too amazing to sound “true”. In this case, they ARE true!! From the correspondence with Doris while booking, to Zoe’s professionalism as Dive Shop Manager and all the great instructors. We were well taken care of. My hubby and I are masters of doing “refreshers” and then not diving for a while. Mark taught our refresher on the first day, and we learned brand new tips we never heard in other refresher courses. Highly recommend the refresher if it’s been a while. Not “boring” and the dive on the house reef is incredible, We originally signed up for 4 total days diving, ended up adding another as we missed the crew on our “day off” diving. They even organized a night dive for us. My husband has had less diving experience than me, and he was absolutely comfortable going on the night dive with Nanne. Many of our dives were with Nanne, and we enjoyed them all. One day diving with Whitney and she was great too. We don’t typically repeat an island adventure, but are already looking at when to return to Curaçao, and that’s because of this awesome company!

Dove with The Dive Bus in 2016 and loved it. Recently came back to the island and of course chose to dive with them again. Great dives, excellent crew! Couldn't ask for anything better.

This shop was recommended and had great reviews so it was the logical choice. Emails from Doris before the trip answered many questions and kept lines of communication going. Divemaster and instructor Nanne was professional and efficient, yet had a very relaxed Caribbean vibe to his dive leadership. Nanne had a good eye on the dives for spotting hard to find wildlife. Back at the shop, a clean washroom, lockers, and plenty of rinse tubs were huge pluses. The two dives were part of the same wall that gently sloped to the Car Pile at 100’, which is not really necessary to visit unless you want to just go to 100’ to see a bunch of junk. Stay around 40’ for the best wildlife on the reef and more bottom time.

Hello everyone! :-) I went for 10 dives with the dive bus diving center. If you are looking for a professional team, then you are in the right place there. Safety comes first, the equipment is top and they have a bus to visit the numerous dive sites across the island. They are very friendly, helpful and I had a fun time. I can highly recommend this dive center to anyone who wants to discover the underwater world of curacao. Thanks to the whole team of The dive bus for the great time. It was a pleasure diving with you guys. :-)
