Reservations and Booking Information:

You work your (dive) boots off to earn your vacation. Especially your next vacation.

We work ours off so you get what you want, expect and deserve on your vacation. Especially your next vacation.

The information on this page explains how we do our best to make that happen for you, so it’s worth taking a few minutes to read it. Don’t hesitate to get in touch if there’s anything that’s not clear or if you have any questions.

IMPORTANT: Corona Virus COVID-19

The Curacao Government and Curacao’s hospital medical professionals are doing an amazing job of minimizing the impact of COVID-19 on our island.

As Curacao’s borders gradually open up, the Curacao Government is highly aware of the need to continue protecting visitors and residents alike.

So are we. So we’ve changed things up a little.

You’re not the only ones waiting for the “all-clear for international travel” from the Curacao Government. While we’re receiving increasingly more overseas booking requests from folks just like you, we’re missing you, too!

Planning and booking your next Curacao dive vacation is a GREAT way to beat the Corona virus blues. Especially when it’s worry free.

So we’ve amended our terms and conditions and you can BOOK NOW – PAY LATER:

    • No deposits required

    • Full payment not due until 15 days prior to your date of arrival in Curacao

    • Free re-scheduling within 1 year of your planned date of activity; or full refund if cancelled up to 24 hours before your planned activity

    • Updated Cancellation Policy, below

We’ll make the arrangements for your next dive vacation and be back in touch around one month before your planned arrival, to confirm all the arrangements and payments.

So you can start planning your next Curacao dive vacation, now 😉

We’re all looking forward to seeing  and diving you at The Dive Bus soon – and very much appreciate your support, now more than ever.

For a regular fix of #seriouslyfundiving in the meantime, be sure to follow us on facebook and Instagram.

IMPORTANT REMINDER:
WE ALWAYS RECOMMEND TRIP INSURANCE – NOW, MORE THAN EVER!

Meet Doris!

Your booking enquiries are handled by us, The Dive Bus Crew – aka Doris.

Crew circles, white circles, aqua background

We’re the folks who’ll be diving with you, teaching your PADI dive course, checking you in, taking care of you, fixing stuff for you, helping you out in the Dive Bus shop and generally making sure you have an awesome time with us, here in sunny Curacao.

Depending when you read this, we’re either doing all of the above with today’s divers or sleeping, so it may take us a couple of days to get back to you (maybe longer during the busy holiday periods).

Our Dive Schedule is built by YOU

We don’t build our diving schedule – you do.

Instead of having a fixed activity or dive-site schedule, it's built around activities booked by our divers - you.

So to get to do what you want to do, when you want to do it, book in advance..

And because we don't do crowds, there are a limited number of slots available on any dive activity, so once it’s full, it’s full. (But we do do dive groups. More info is coming soon, in the meantime, please follow the info on this page.)

The Small Print: CANCELLATION POLICY

If you cancel your reservation, the following Cancellation Policy applies:

    • Full refund or re-scheduling (within 1 year) if cancelled up to 24 hours before activity
    • Less than 24 hours before activity: 25% of the reservation is non-refundable
    • No shows: 100% of the reservation is non-refundable. Where this is due to:
      • Things beyond your control, such as flight or cruise ship docking delays, or sickness (nope, hangovers don't count), we'll do our best to re-schedule your activities where possible.
      • PADI dive course paperwork issues: during your booking process, we’ll advise what paperwork you need to prepare in advance and bring with you. If you have questions or aren’t sure, please ask before confirming your booking.
      • You not being able to show proof that you’re a certified diver and date of last dive, we do our best to schedule you on a Discover Scuba Dive class instead.

Do you need ...

  • ...trip insurance?

    Yes, yes and yes.

    You work hard to earn your vacation, and it isn't cheap. Neither is diving. But trip insurance is - and it may even be provided by your credit card company (worth checking out).

    Even if it's not, trip insurance usually costs pennies per vacation day and can save you a lot of money and disappointment.

    For example if you have to cancel your dives due to airline delays, injury, bad conditions, lost luggage, injury, hangover (happens a lot and we won't tell the insurance company if you don't), your trip insurance will cover it.

    Cancelling diving due to bad conditions is worst case scenario and of course, we do our best to reschedule in such events. But it's not always possible, so getting your money back under your trip insurance policy removes some of the 'ouch'.

    Long story short? Yes, take out trip insurance!
  • ...dive incident insurance?

    Yes, yes and yes!

    In the event of injury, decompression sickness, equipment loss or damage, DAN insurance is priceless and may also include trip insurance.
