I went on 5 diving trips with Ocean Encounters and what a pleasure it was. A professional and customer friendly environment, with it's high standards towards safety and a keen eye for the best dive sites, they are able to give you an unforgettable experience in the waters surrounding Curaçao. Make sure you let Jeremiah advise you on where to go and where to dive and you're guaranteed a good time.

Best dive shop in Curaçao. Super friendly and knowledgeable staff, world class diving sites and exceptionally careful with hygiene during these strange times. Paul is an incredible dive master and everyone else is super nice. We cannot recommend them enough!

My family first went diving with Ocean Encounters in July 2019 with our newly certified 13 year old. Being newly certified, our son was a bit nervous but our dive instructor took him under his wing and he was able to get a specialty certification towards advanced diver on his first true open water experience! We loved the island so much that we booked our return trip while still in Curacao for March 2020. My son's dive instructor remembered him and was so welcoming that we were back. The diving was incredible and we were able to go to different sites than previously visiting. Also on this last trip, my 9 year old took a bubble maker class with Cindy and he felt so at ease and enjoyed his experience tremendously. Now, recently turning 10, he will be the youngest in our family to get certified. The owner, Jeremiah, is also amazing to work with. His operation is run by awesome staff members. The boats are very clean and well equipped and the rental equipment is in great shape. There are plenty of restaurants right near the shop so you can enjoy a cold drink after diving. No doubt we will return to see them again!
