Welcome to The Dive Bus, Curacao:

Seriously fun diving at Curacao's #1 rated PADI 5 Star, Green Star and 100% Project AWARE dive center!

Why folks like you like diving with us folks at The Dive Bus

The Dive Bus started back in 2005 as Curacao's first dive center to focus on quality, comfortable, friendly and fun shore diving, on board the Dive Busses. No crowds or ‘cattle boats’, run for divers by divers, delivering seriously fun diving, in small, friendly groups.

Now a PADI 5 Star dive center - and Curacao's first PADI Green Star and 100% Project AWARE dive center - we're still rollin' the same way. And HEAPS of divers return to dive, learn and hang out, year after year, which is awesome :)


We can't wait to show you :)

The Dive Busses...

These are the Dive Busses - a lot more comfortable and spacious than a typical dive boat - and no sea sickness guaranteed.

There's plenty of room on-board for you and everything we need for fun, relaxed 2t guided Dive Bus trips around Curacao - including your picnic lunch.

Unless you enjoy gearing up on a bouncy, crowded dive boat, shore-diving on-board the Dive Bus is the most relaxed way to dive Curacao.

You're going to love it.

What's so great about diving in Curacao

Curacao's a whole lot more than a bright blue, orange-flavoured cocktail mixer with an unpronounceable name.

Close to Bonaire, Curacao is also a world-class shore-diving destination, famed for mild currents, tropical water temperatures, excellent visibility, short swim-outs and enormous diversity of marine life.

Explore two of the best of Curacao's shore dive sites just across the road from The Dive Bus: the world famous Car Pile and the beautiful Pierbaai Reef, which you’ll want to dive again and again… (And you can!)

You're going to love it.
