“Snorkeling adventure”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

We prebooked an excursion from our Cruise Ship with Actief. We had a great tour of the island on the way to our first snorkeling spot which was a nice beach. The ride is not the most comfortable, but what can you expect...it's an island truck. Not bad...just not the most comfy. The supplies were just what we needed. The second stop, which had a sunken tug boat, was much more active and beautiful that the first. Both were nice beaches (but rocky entrances). The sunken tugboat was pretty cool, too! Our guide was extremely friendly!

“Fun Snorkeling Trip with Curacao Actief!”
Reviewed April 22, 2014

My wife and I pre-booked an excursion with Curacao Actief (reef and tugboat snorkel) for our cruise stop. We were promptly greeted by Larry, who would be our guide for the afternoon. Larry was a blast - friendly, funny and informative.... we really enjoyed our time with him! It turned out to be just my wife and myself on the tour, which was a nice surprise. It really blows my mind to see a ship of over 3,000 passengers arrive into port and go out on cattle call snorkeling trips when you can have a much more pleasant experience with a private operator!!! Anyway, we went to two snorkeling destinations that were maybe 15-20 minutes from the port. During the drive there, Larry gave us some information about Willemstad and the island. The first snorkel destination was decent, but we really enjoyed the sunken tugboat portion. Since there was just the two of us, we had all the time we needed to explore both areas. After snorkeling, Larry gave us a delicious local treat that was some type of bread pudding with coconut. He gave us time to climb to the top of a nearby fort and see the sunset (our ship was in port from 2 PM to 11 PM). We asked that he drop us off downtown, and he had no problem accommodating this request. If you are on a cruise or going to be taking a land vacation in Curacao, be sure to book with Curacao Actief!

“Perfect Wedding!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014

We recently got married in Curacao and worked with Curacao Actief for all of our transportation needs. From the second I contacted Curacao Actief, Jeffrey and Bettina were extremely helpful. They helped me arrange transportation for all of our guests coming to and from the United States. The drivers were always on time, polite, friendly and ensured that everyone was comfortable and happy! I would definitely recommend Curacao Actief for any transportation needs on the island. They were absolutely fabulous and helped make our wedding perfect!

“Great day!”
Reviewed April 20, 2014 via mobile

We met up with Elmer at the pier, and proceeded with a tour of the city. We then went to two snorkel sites, the first one off shore was just ok, the next one was a sunken tug boat, and it was pretty good...We had been to curacao once before, but we definitely got to see more on this tour. We thoroughly enjoyed our day, and Elmer was very accommodating. I recommend this excursion :)

“The poor souls on the cattle call”
Reviewed April 8, 2014

Our trip started out right off the pier and to watch those that had reserved file into a packed bus started this tour out the perfect way. There's seating for 8 in these trucks but with 8 you'll be packed like sardines when jostled around on the trails. We had 4 which was perfect. Every other vehicle when seen was packed. We tour the whole island and seen some magnificent shoreline. We stopped at had a nice lunch plus a quick dip for some snorkeling. This was a perfectly balanced tour with the right amount of everything and not too much of anything. Thanks again.
