We did the dolphin dive ( combined with try scuba) and it was awesome! Our instructor George ( who is almost :D fluent in German ) was super fun on the one side but also made sure we had an experience we´ll never forget. The dolphins looked happy and very well cared for.

Went therefor a week with a group of 10 people from Scuba New York. Ocean Encounters staff went beyond the call of duty to accommodate us since we lost a full day of diving thanks to the airline. Service and attention were exceptional will definitely visit them again soon

I was part of a scuba group who stayed at the Sunscape Resort for a week and signed on for 5 days of 2 tank boat dives. The crew, shop staff and divemasters were great. Very accommodating for our add-on afternoon and evening dives. I bought a couple souvenirs in the dive shop; better selection in their main shop located... More

This was our second trip to Sunscape and diving with Ocean Encounters. This time we felt that things weren't quite as organized. The conditions were extremely rough (no fault of Ocean Encounters) so our diving wasn't as good as two years ago. The new dive shop at the Sunscape is really nice, and the storage room is safe to leave... More

I'm sorry to hear that your recent return visit with us was not as expected. Sea conditions we can't control indeed unfortunately but I'm happy to see you liked our new building at the Sunscape premises. As for the double charge I'm very sorry about that, the correction was right away. I hope you will consider us for a future... More

We just got back from spending an incredible week diving with Ocean Encounters. The diving was wonderful. The staff were professional as well as fun. They led us to beautiful dive sights. The boats were clean and comfortable. Staying at Sunscape made using Ocean Encounters absolutely perfect. Do not hesitate to use this Dive Company.

I really enjoyed Snorkling. Our guide pointed out squid, a moray eel, and an octopus, among other animals. All of the staff from start to finish were great to work with. The next time I'm in Curacao I'll be back for another adventure!

I got certified at Ocean Encounters! I can´t imagine a better way to discover the incredible underwater life of the Caribbean than with these divers. Everybody was super friendly and knowledgeable, and they explained everything I needed to know as a newcomer to diving. Our group's instructor was lots of fun, and so was every other diver that took us... More

Just got back from a week staying at the condos next to here. Great dive shop. All the dive masters were amazing. They all spoke English as well as Dutch. We did 3 days of boat dives with them including Mushroom Forest and the Blue room (really cool). On days you go on a boat dive, you get unlimited tanks... More
