Just as we say a picture can't do it justice, well I just can't say enough good about our dive trip with Hans Pleij @ CURious2DIVE in Curacao. He deserves your business and will earn it in every way while you are there.
I found him on Cruise Critic and here on TripAdvisor while planning our port days for a recent Carnival cruise. I sent him an email inquiry for my 17 year old son who had never been diving or snorkeling and myself with some experience and he replied back that day. He even made arrangements to pick us up at the port and made arrangements for 2 non divers to go with us. My wife and my 7 year old daughter who went swimming where we went diving. It meant a lot to us to make this a family event as my son is graduating in a couple months and has already enlisted in the army.
We were late getting off the ship due to windy docking and he waited for us without a problem. Carnival ports in Curacao from 2-10 pm and most places won't do diving for beginners late in the day. But his work ethic is work while the work is there.
From the time we met I felt like I was dealing with a friend. He is so down to earth, laid back and friendly. As he says he has turned a hobby (diving) into a business. Very thorough and professional and safety minded. He tolerated and interacted so well with my wife and daughter and they weren't the ones diving.
The class part took just the right amount of time. He is so entertaining it doesn't feel like class. The "check offs" done before the dive were perfect. The dive was amazing and we felt so safe with Hans. He even brought my daughter stuff back from the dive. The dive went by so quick but we were under water for almost an hour.
My son has not stopped talking about the diving and how awesome it was. You know how hard it is to impress teenagers these days. I can't wait to take this cruise again and take my daughter on her 1st beginner dive with Hans. He even spent time with my wife and told her how to get over her claustrophobia and not being able to dive or snorkel.
If you ever thought about a beginner dive please do and certainly go with Hans. You won't regret it.
Oh and his facility is amazing.
