I have been out with Coral Divers (so far this month) on 3 boat dives and 1 shore dive at the house reef. Have also done two other shore dives with a ‘found buddy’ along the house reef. The guides and boat captains are super. Friendly, very capable and safety focussed and fun. The staff at the shop are equally very helpful and friendly. They have lockers for your gear if you want to leave everything there to dry. Great place to dive from.
The house reef is easy to get to and navigate with lots of fish, coral and invertebrates to keep a photo junky happy. I’ve captured some great shots of shrimp here. Night diving on the house reef similarly presented lots of photo ops with typical night creatures out and about.
Water clarity was good (35 to 45 ft) on every dive at every site. It can get a bit choppy with waves so for some divers the large catamaran they have might be preferred; this goes out when they have more divers and was very well set up and comfortable. For smaller groups they use a smaller dive boat that has a side ladder.
Overall great drift dives in very mild currents,

Thank you for your nice and detailed review and great to hear that you enjoyed your shore-, boat-, and night diving with us. We are truly fortunate to have such a healthy house reef right in front of our dive center, which is also great for night diving indeed. I believe you have more dives planned with us next week, so more stunning creatures to be found and to be photographed.

A group of four of us dove with Coral Divers for the past 10 days, and Coral Divers deserves full marks for great, friendly service. We mostly did shore diving, and Coral Divers was a great home base, with rinse tanks and secure lockers.

Caremi and the rest of the team were super helpful with advice for a group that had never dived on Curacao before, and helped to quickly resolve the two equipment issues that we ran into during our stay in Curacao.

The house reef is quite nice, and we can recommend that for some easy, relaxing diving before you venture out to places like Jeremy, Playa Lagun or Tugboat. All in all, a great experience.

While on vacation and short notice, I reached out to Coral to try and schedule a dive. A wonderful woman named Shaneil was extremely helpful in informing me of the options and pricing. Once I settled on 2 tank boat dives, she took care of reservation and booking for me. She was extremely nice and helpful. She was also able to coordinate transportation for me as well.

The crew on the dive consisted of AJ the captain and Tyrone who was the Divemaster. The team was very nice and professional. We had exceptional weather that allowed us to make two dives. Tyrone was an amazing guide on the two dives and pointed multiple sea life including lionfish, a turtle, an eel, and trumpet fish.

I rented dive equipment and it was in excellent working condition. I would highly recommend reaching out to Coral Divers to schedule your Curacao dive.

While dive shops and resorts are generally friendly and accommodating, once in a while you interact with an organization that really GETS customer service, professionalism, approachability, ease of dealing with, and just really great people. The Coral Dive team welcomed our group of 15 in February 2021 just as Curaçao opened up again. Our dive trip included concierge’s scuba set up which means they drag our dive gear to and from the boat every day, and cleaned and dried our equipment in our own personal locker. Underwater, the dive instructors were attentive without being overbearing. They quickly assessed the dive skill of our group and assume the role as underwater guides without being controlling. They are professionalism and laid-back manner made for the perfect week of diving.

Coral Divers were great, the dive guides and the boat drivers. We had been to this location many years ago but under different management. We were surprised in that diving is not as big of an emphasis as it was in 2000. There are many folks getting certified, snorkeling and resort dives. The shop is well equipped and we were able to leave our gear secured in a locker at the shop.

My wife and I chose Coral Divers, looking for a safe and instructive experience for our Advanced Open Water Diver accreditation. After we passed the AOWD course, we did 4 more "fun" dives with them. We could not be more please with the results of that decision. Koen and Melissa were knowledgeable and professional in every way, assuring us safe and interesting dives, while imparting a treasure of new knowledge. Most of our dives were shore dives, but we did go on one boat dives, which, like everything else they did, was handled expertly. The boat was clean and safe, with ample room for divers and their gear. The crew was well-trained and experienced. We have no complaints and only praise for our week of diving with Coral Divers. They are to be commended.

Coral Divers is located at the Coral Estate Lux Resort. Overall, the waterfront facility is set-up for effortless, enchanting dives. The resort is beautiful and romantic, the reef is healthy and vibrant. The equipment is well maintained and the staff are knowledgeable and fun. It's possible to enter the water from the beach that's covered in beautiful white corals, or there are stairs with handrails that leads into the crystal clear water. There are yellow buoys that marks the snorkel area, and an underwater rope that guides you to and from the reef underwater.

The reef in front of the resort is beautiful. As the guides had explained, there's no need to go very deep, about 40' down already has an amazing assortments of corals, and the purple tubes ponge are so vibrant in the sunlight. At 50' down, there are more variety of fish. My favorite was finding a neon green moray eel that's more than 5' long!!!

There is a restaurant right next to the dive shop, perfectly located to sit and recap on each the dive with drinks in hand. The snorkel area is sandy bottom, and it is also packed with a variety of fish. There are umbrellas and lounge chairs by the snorkel area. It's fun and comfortable set-up to play around and discover the area. I felt pampered diving here. I'm definitely coming back!

I dove with my instructor/guide Liz. The reef is rich in corals of all types and the usual Caribbean fishes. A short swim out to the reef from our entry which consists of a few steps down to the water. There is no beach at the resort - beach in the sense of lots of fine sand. It’s just big rocks and broken corals. The reef to the left is called the Habitat and that’s where we went considering the current for that day. It’s like a wall dive. The reef drops off steeply to as far as one can see. We stayed between 15m to 20m.
Coral Estate is a gated community and the dive shop is within the Estate. Looks like a good place for a destination wedding or a romantic getaway. I do not see anything that would interest a solo diver.

We must have hit them on a bad day. Our experience was sub-par. There were 7 divers on the boat and only one divemaster. While we are good divers, not requiring a lot of help, it was still too small of a staff to make a pleasurable dive. The boat captain made zero effort to help people on/off the boat. The divemaster was tied up helping some novice divers figure out their gear. It seemed there was some bad blood between the captain and the divemaster, and they weren't tactful enough to keep their dirty laundry from the guests. The dive site selection was not representative of the better sites in the island. The boat is dangerous for entry exit in the water, especially considering they didn't offer any help. The surface of the boat is slick/slippery. Despite paying $300 for my wife and I to dive, they had no transportation options to/from our resort. It cost another $120 round trip to take a taxi to this place, as it's far away from anything else in Curacao. After the first day, we decided to not go back for any more dives with this outfit. We're not poor, and don't mind spending money for good service. But frankly, this is the first time in 20 years of diving that I didn't leave a tip for the crew. I wish we had just rented tanks and did shore dives by ourselves.

This operator is absolutely not reliable. I booked all the dives in advance of 2 months, and called them up to 3 times before arriving. Also exhange many msgs by whatts app and at the end nothing happened as planned. No car, no boat, and worse then all no explanation! They just keep saying that they cannot tell us the reason of all the cancellations. Even dives that I booked on the spot did not happened accordingly. They have good equipment and experienced staff but they are not friendly at all. Always too busy and just looking for new customers but without taking proper care of the existing ones. One of the worst experiences I ever had in more then 30 years diving all around the world!! Never more!
