The organization in the dive shop is good. You get proper information, the check-in is working good and every diver is checked for its qualifications. The organization on the boat the next day was something different since the boat was full with more than 25 divers. The briefing before the dives was not really detailed and only by words, no...

My wife and I really enjoyed our dive with the sharks, rays and turtles. I can't say enough about it. My wife was just beaming she had so much fun, and I can't be happier. What really helped make it special was the attention that David (our Dive Master) and Juan (Photographer) gave us, and really...my wife. I wanted this... More

I had a great diving experience. The service was excellent. The employees where always friendly and helpful. The dive masters provided excellent guidiance and service. The daily tours where excellent and I'll never forget the dolphin dive. Also to recommend is the guided night dive. Thank you for making my holidays an unforgetable experience!

The tale of two experiences begins with a great location to go and fun with friends. However... Upon arrival we met the very nice and knowledgeable staff of Ocean Encounters. We talked dive packages for the week and scheduled four boat trips with them and planned afternoon shore dives. The morning of our first shore dive found seas rougher than... More

Thank you for the great review about your experience with our operation and dive team. We indeed have had a little choppy seas recently which we unfortunately don't control, but shore diving on Curaçao is great too indeed. So many nice spots to visit. We're happy to see you enjoyed diving with us and hope to see you back soon.... More

We spent a very nice five days diving with Ocean Encounters at the Sunscape Resort. The staff members we worked with (Maurice, Ruth, Charlie, Karen Maike and George) were all friendly and helpful.

Ocean encounters Curaçao is one of the best diving operator I dove. It's a clean, professional driven company, the Lion's Dive hotel shop is large with three boat slips, shop, classroom, lockers etc.. But the best part it's the staff, friendly, professional and fun. If you are planning to go to Curaçao, It's the best bang for the buck.
