The B Diving staff is wonderful! Wildo, the dive guide, is very safety-conscious but also eager to make each dive a memorable one. I booked two shore dives for my husband and daughter with B Diving during the day- they liked the dives so much I also wound up booking a night dive for them. The Playa Cas Abou is breathtakingly beautiful, the water is crystal clear, and the diversity of fish is just astonishing. Don't miss this opportunity if you are in Curacao!

B Diving is one of the best dive operations I’ve ever worked with and I’ve been diving for 25 years. Our family had 8 divers and scheduled a variety of dives and certifications (boat, shore, Nitrox, wreck). The experience was top notch across the board from communications, reservations, preparedness, safety, customer service etc. Our group includes divers with 3 months to 25 years of diving experience and were all delighted with B Diving. We worked with 4 different dive guides from B Diving during our multiple days of diving and they were all excellent. Some of our crew rented gear and it was nearly new. The location is on Cas Abou beach which is spectacular. The shop works with smaller groups rather than some of the island operators that run boats with 25-30 divers. The personal touch means a lot to use. When we return to Curacao, we will definitely dive with B Diving again. Thanks for a great experience.

We did the discover diving program and would recommend it to anyone wanting to try diving for the first time. It's a few hours in total including a dive. The instructor was friendly and professional. It was a very fun experience and we got to see lots of fish we've never seen while snorkeling including a sea horse. It's a great way to spend the day and Cas Abao Beach is beautiful.

Seriously wish I could give more than 5 stars!

We were in Curaçao for just over a week and wanted to get some diving in. We visited Cas Abou on our first day, wanting to rent some gear to dive their reef.

Brigitte, Wildo & Tessa were so welcoming and allowed us to borrow 2 sets of gear (plus spares and extras) for the whole week, and suggested that we just come back each day for new tanks. The gear was all in great condition, and they even allowed us to use brand new regulators that they had only just received.

Every day that we went to see them, they recognised us, asked us how our diving had been going, suggested dive sites to hit up, restaurants to eat in afterwards and offered additional gear that we may need for each dive. They became our friends on the trip and were always on hand to help and offer as many tips as they could.

At the end of the trip, they gave us a great deal considering how much we had borrowed, and the time we had had it all for.

We were genuinely sad to end our daily visits, but will definitely consider B Diving our go to dive hut on the island for future trips.

Thank you all so much for all your help and support, we cannot wait to come back!!

the instructors were all very calm and kind. They really took their time to explain what they were gonna do and how they were gonna do it.
They took us to playa piscado and playa kalki and cas abao and all three diving spots were amazing. A special Thanks again to Joost, Tessa, Waldo and Hoover for giving us the comfort feeling. They really made us enjoy the dive and absolutely didn't rush anything.

The first contact at the desk was already very comfortabel and friendly while we were checking out what the scuba diving introduction dive was actually meaning. @the guy who recently had a surgery for his eyes; sorry man, didn’t catch your name, but thanks for the nice talk and intro!

1 hour later we were sitting at a table to receive a clear introduction by our instructor Faisel. The owner, Brigitte, also joined us shortly to have a nice chat, sharing experiences and laughs. The introduction dive was great! First some basic exercises in the lower waters and once you (and Faisel ;-)) are comfortabel enough you will head to a nice rif for the beautiful underwater world where we have seen great coral and beautiful fishes under the guidance of Faisel. Faisel guided us to some nice spots at the rif and kept a close eye on us to check if everything was all good along the way which was very nice and gave a safe feeling being the first time under water for approx. 12 meters. At the same time we had the freedom to pause at a nice spot to check out the peaceful environment.

It was our first diving experience and unfortunately were not able to proceed with our PADI open water as we were traveling back to our home place 2 days later.

@whole crew; keep up the good work and friendliness! We will definetly come back when we are at Curacao. Most likely with our Padi Open Water ;-).

We tried Scuba Diving for the first time, my boyfriend reserved the experience online. It was very easy and fast done. The Cas Abao Beach is an absolutely amazing place at Curaçao. As we arrived, we felt right. Laurens, our PADI instructor, was very friendly and courteous. He explained us everything in detail. We were able to ask questions or ask him to repeat anything. During the dive experience, Laurens did such an good job. He was very calm and relaxed, so his clamness affected us - no stress, no fear.
He always paid attention to us during the dive and he had also taken some nice pictures. This experience was amazing - cannot be put in words. We definetly would come back! If you are looking for a place to dive at Curaçao and an unforgettable experience, go to B-diving at Cas Abao Beach and ask for Laurens.

We had a great first diving experience with B diving. We wanted to try diving after some wonderful snorkeling on the island so booked an introductory dive with B diving.
From the moment we arrived there they were awesome. The ambiance was relaxed and they offered us coffee to start the day.
The instructions were very clear and the gear looked well looked after.
After the initial instruction we started the introductory dive in the ocean. After successfully doing some initial exercises (clearing goggles, finding and clearing regulator) we started with the dive on the reef. And damn, what a beautiful reef it was. The dive was amazing and definitely got us hooked for more. You see so much more of the beautiful reef while underwater than when on the surface.
While guided and following the instructor we were free te look around and enjoy the water.

The instructions were clear and easy to understand and the instructors were skilled and very nice!
Would recommend B diving to anyone!

This was our third visit to the island. We never miss visiting Cas Abao and B Diving. We love it so much we went there twice this time! Brigette and Wildo have a top notch operation with excellent facilities. They run an organized, clean shop. You can tell they take good care of their gear so you know they will take good care of you. They freely share their knowledge and information with you and make you feel like a part of the team. They’re enthusiastic about the dive site and excitedly give you inside information about the critters that are currently living on the reef and their locations. They have a nice shady area to rinse and dry your gear. If you’re looking to learn how to dive or rent a tank for the day, don’t miss Cas Abao and B Diving!

Both my husband and I are PADI qualified although haven’t been diving for some 10 years or so. Whilst my son had carried out a discover diving course 5-6 years ago, my 10 year old daughter hadn’t been diving before so we decided to go on a discover diving experience with B dive at Cas Abao beach.

My daughter was very nervous but our instructor Bridget was excellent and built up my daughter’s confidence brilliantly so she was able to enjoy the dive.

The kit was clean and in great condition.

The water was beautifully clear so we were able to see a lot of fish.

It was a great experience and a shout out goes to Marvin who expertly took us through the pre dive theory/safety aspect and to Bridget for looking after us so well and helping our daughter!

I would happily recommend Bdive!
