First of all, SB is a great forum and as a newish scuba diver I've found the posts and trip reviews to be invaluable and helped me pick Curacao for this trip

I am heading to Curacao for the first time with a scuba buddy and wanted to see what folks thought about the tentative plan.

We are staying at the Renaissance in Willemstad since I'm using points as a Marriott Titanium. We have a rental SUV and the spouses plus kids are coming along as well so there needs to be a balance between Scuba and hanging with the Fam's. Plan is to do morning dives to accommodate . Dive goal is to see lots of underwater species and the bigger the better...

Never shore dove so looking forward to building that skill set . Plan is to drive to Westpunt / beaches at least three times.


Arrive late evening at Renaissance

Thanks in advance

True Eastpoint dives aren’t included in any of those itineraries you have listed. The Eastern reef is only accessible by boat - truly pristine.
This is what I came to post. The Eastpoint reefs are the best on the island in my opinion. They get no shore diving traffic, so less pressure on the reefs, etc. The diving there, as KK put it, is "pristine". Dive Charters Curacao will take you in small groups on their RIB to all the good east side spots. VERY worth it!

DCC also does Westpoint trips in the RIB and have a trip that combos Watamula/Mushroom Forest and Blue Room, they are super awesome people. :wink:
