The Park gives informative tours, has a water show of dolphins and seals. Eateries inside. A little pricey

Beautiful reef, abundant marine life, seahorse, octopus, sponge, coral, parrot fish, trumpet fish, etcetera. It has an easy access from shore, so you can swim to the reef without much effort, depending of course of the weather . We went with Ocean Encounter diving, great diving company. Our diver guides were David C and Cherina, and they are greatttttttt!!!

Have made 4 trips to Curacao and have never been disappointed in the diving. There is a lot of fish life and the reefs are healthy.

This winter I spent three months diving in Tobago, Dominica, Curacao, and Bonaire. Without a doubt, the Curacao Marine Park is one of the best diving locations I have experienced in my 14 years of diving. Like Bonaire many of the sites are accessible for shore diving, but I only did boat dives. The reefs are healthy and I saw... More

Diving accompanied is rather expensive, especially if you don't have your own equipment. the nature is of course super, although a lot of the coral is dying...
