We booked the Tugboat snorkel tour for our port stop in Curacao and cannot understand why the whole ship didn't book Curacao-Actief! No matter- we had a great time. Larry was waiting for us at the dock, gave us great commentary along the way to our snorkel stops, had refreshments and a tasty local snack cake for us. As new snorkelers, we appreciated his patience and my husband's reluctance to try snorkeling has now changed to his new favourite sport- we can't wait to go again! Next time we are in Curacao we intend to book a full day excursion with Curacao-Actief.

Thank you very much for sharing your experience with us. We are very pleased that you enjoyed the tour with us and Larry; however, are even more delighted that your husband now fell in love with snorkeling! It is indeed a great sport, we are glad you convinced him trying!

We are looking forward to welcoming you back to the island in the future.

Thanks again and Happy New Year
Bettina, Larry and the entire Curacao Actief Team

We planned an excursion before our departure to Curacao and booked through Curacao Actief for their Indian Trail tour. Making the arrangements beforehand was easy and Larry met us on time at our hotel. We chose this adventure because we would get to see parts of the island that are not your typical places to visit. It was an off road adventure and perfect for us, since we were not interested in doing one of the ATV tours.

Larry is a pleasant and excellent guide. He was even willing to stop and let us take pictures when we wanted to. We got to see some areas on the East end that can only be reached with an off road vehicle. He explained some of the history of the area.

I would highly recommend this half day trip for anyone that wants to see other parts of the island but does not want to drive their own ATV. We considered this a great compliment to the standard and more touristy East West tour.

Outside the cruiseterminal in Willemstad, we met our driver Larry for the 'World of Water'-tour. He showed us almost every place that was on the program and told us a lot of interesting facts on the island and the environment. After the first stop at the caves, we enjoyed a local specialtity called 'pasteitje'. It was a nice and tastful surprise.Then we went to Boca Tabla/Boca Pistol and had a nice sandwish lunch. The it was beachtime in a nice lagoon where we spotted a seaturtle. On the way back to the city we drove by a lake and spotted flamingos. The guide was really great and he is also a great entertainer. So if you plan to take a tour with Curacao Actief, ask for Larry!

My Wife and I took the Breath of Curacao tour on 11/6/2013. We had an awesome tour guide (Leo), who helped make it one of the best parts of our honeymoon. The tour helped us see a large part of the island, the guide was extremely friendly and knowledgeable, and helped us see and learn things that we wouldn't have otherwise. Thank you very much for such a wonderful experience!

Hi Howard,
Thanks for the beautiful trip on 13 november 2013 about Curaçao along the coast and the visit to the national parks. It has surprised us the knowledge you had about the ecology, nature, environmental protection and history of Curaçao. But not just what you showed us but also with the enthusiasm it told and still enjoyed many things on our trip. And many thanks for the fine threads we have had along the way about the economy of Curaçao and you happy, cheerful and enthusiastic character. Many greetings from Ien and Peter
