Not only did the Tugboat dive site become of my favorite dive spots in Curaçao (if not my absolute favorite), but I also learned so much from the experience!

Tugboat was nothing short of magic, with its “squid hangout” area, tugboat wreck, coral reef, coral nursery and pier. We saw so many different animals it was hard to keep track, all mixed with the beautiful colors of the water and corals...

Bob, the diving instructor I went with, was really nice and attentive, making sure I knew what we were doing at all times. He corrected that which I was doing wrong or remembered incorrectly, and as a result I learned useful diving practices that I will take with me on all my future dives. Additionally, he pointed out loads of cool animals and things for me to see - which is, in my opinion, the best part about having a guide. He also had a camera, and recorded lots of videos!

If you were coming to the island, wanted to dive, and had only one site to choose, this is one I would definitely recommend for you to do.

The staff at Jan Thiel Diving were very pleasant, thorough and professional from the booking process and all the way through to the completion of my PADI Open Water Dive Course. Maurice and Bob were amazing and timely with their correspondence in regards to questions that I had prior to my trip down FROM Canada to Curaçao. My dive instructor, Cas, was extremely helpful and patient throughout the course and really demonstrated a great understanding not only of the dive process but of the sites and history of the island which made the experience all the more enjoyable. Jan Thiel Diving staff were very passionate and knowledgeable about the sport and about respecting the surrounding underwater environment and its habitants. I cannot wait until my next trip back!

Bob was an excellent diving guide with good knowledge of the various dive sites of Curacao. Fully relaxed, but never losing focus on his clients and the underwater environment.. Very likely I will dive again with him next time I'm on Curacao

We are four experienced divers on Curacao for a diving holiday. We rented our diving tanks through Jan Thiel Diving. After some brief consultation, we were able to have filled diving cylinders available 24 hours a day, which was well arranged. This allowed us to make more night dives than planned, which was great.
On our next visit we will definitely go to Jan THiel Diving again, perfect service and in addition to good training they also know exactly where an experienced diver wants. Top!

We have spent a wonderfull stay at Curaçao.
My wife, Corinne, passed the Open Water, what I have been waiting for so long.
Many thanks to Maurice, Bob and Kas for their hapiness and patience. The team took care of us (made a different dive each time, security, advices, ...).
It was really nice.

Today I was fortunate to dive with Maurice at Jan thiel diving. This was my 3rd dive with them and I love it. Directors bay has to be one of the most beautiful spots in the island. The wall was amazing, full of life and we got to hang out with a friendly turtle. Special mention to Maurice for his enthusiasm, professionalism and knowledge about the area.

I dove with Jan Thiel Diving early Jan 2020 in a group of 2, which i really liked. He gave us a couple of options, one of which was mostly unknown, but had quite a few turtles flying in and out. Travelling with my dive gear i had not brought my camera, but Maurice (the dive master) unexpectedly sent his footage the day after our dives. Really appreciated that and highly recommend them.

I dove with Dennis and Floris and had a wonderful time at 4 different sites around Curacao! +1000000

The entire team was super professional, but in true island fashion very laid back and allowed me to craft a dive experience unique to me!

Best of all the pics and videos from my dive were delivered SAME DAY - which was huge especially being at other dive shops that take several days to deliver.

Additionally all equipment was well maintained And the dive shop was in a resort area so getting coffee and a post-dive shower was convenient.

I’d highly recommend !
