Reservations and Booking Information:

Please take a minute to read.

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

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

The information on this page explains how we do our best to make that happen, for all of our divers:

All of us on The Dive Bus Crew sincerely hope that you’re well and healthy in these strange times. We’re all well and healthy, although some have returned home to be with family for the time being.

Following the latest COVID-19 advisories from the Curacao Government, The Dive Bus dive center is still open, but with reduced hours / days. Please check our facebook page for these and any additional updates.

Or, feel free to drop us an email. We’re still checking and responding to them, and endeavouring to post our usual social media “doses” of fun, sun, diving and random ridiculousness from sunny Curacao.

If you need to change the dates for your confirmed dive booking due to COVID-19 travel restrictions, we’ll do our best to reschedule your diving within 12 months of your booking date, and look forward to seeing you once the virus is under control.

If you’d like to cancel your confirmed booking, please check out our Cancellation Policy again first. If there is anything you need us to provide for your trip insurance claim, we’ll be more than happy to help.

If you’re diving with us soon, please be assured that we apply strict hygiene procedures for rental equipment cleanliness at The Dive Bus in accordance with CDC/DAN guidelines.

We’re also happy to install your own – or a brand new – mouthpiece for your rental regulator, on request. Hand sanitizer dispensers, disinfecting wipes and disposable gloves are available for your use throughout the dive center.

We very much look forward to seeing you at The Dive Bus – and very much appreciate your support, now more than ever.

Meet Doris!

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

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.)


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

    • 56 – 29 days prior to arrival: 25% of the reservation is non-refundable
    • 28 – 15 days prior to arrival: 50% of the reservation is non-refundable
    • 14 – 2 days prior to arrival: 75% of the reservation is non-refundable

    • No shows, late shows or cancellations less than 2 days before the activity: 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.
