IMPORTANT: COVID-19 INFO as of 2 April 2020

All of us on The Dive Bus Crew sincerely hope that you’re well and healthy in these strange times.

We are strictly adhering to the Curacao Government COVID-19 advisories and policies which are changing and expanding regularly, in order to contain the low number of infections on the island and minimize the risk of spread.

As a result, The Dive Bus dive center is closed until further notice but we’re still here and working (remotely). And we figured that planning and booking your next Curacao dive vacation would be a GREAT way for you to beat the Corona virus blues. Especially if it’s worry free, so you can BOOK NOW – PAY LATER!

Just complete and send us your booking form once you’re ready, and ask whatever questions you need to. We’ll make the arrangements as per usual and, once we all have the official “all-clear for travel”, we’ll be in touch with your final arrangements and payment info. So – what are you waiting for? 😉

If you need to postpone your existing 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 want to cancel your existing confirmed booking due to COVID-19 travel restrictions,  please check out our Cancellation Policy again first, further down this page.

We’re all really looking forward to seeing you at The Dive Bus soon – and very much appreciate your support, now more than ever. For a fix of #seriouslyfundiving in the meantime, be sure to follow us on facebook and Instagram.

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:

    • 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.
