Great Diving experience
Sep. 2021 • Couples
My Girlfriend and i spent 2 weeks in Curacao and did several dives with Curious2Dive.
First we completed our OpenWater which was all well explained and organised. We even could use the spare time we had to discover some dive spots already.
We also did a night dive - something you have to try - and got a good instruction and felt very safe.
Last we booked a trip to klein Curacao and went there to hunt some lionfish! Everything from the booking, the instructions and the dives itself was really great!
We really recommend Curious2Dive and to be precise Hans that was our diving instructor and Guide to everyone travelling to curacao. As a special bonus he takes some pictures from you and the fishes you see so you already have some cool fotos you can take home!

My favourite and most relaxed dive!
It was my favourite and most relaxed dive i ever did! Before my experience @curious2dive i did 3 explore dives at other places. Hans is really relaxed and make you feel comfortable with diving. He makes sure that your dive is unforgettable and shows the most beautful coral and fish.

Just a perfect dive!!!
Sep. 2021
Dear all,

If you want to dive with the best? Then you have to dive with Hans Pleij. Not only he is a very experienced diver and well known to all the dive sites on Curacao (which are many!) but Hans is also specialised in diving with people with 'special needs'.

In my case, as an experienced diver, I suffered a diving accident in 2006 on The Galapos and after that, I was afraid of diving again. For years I did not want to dive anymore. But Hans Pleij was recommend to me by fiends living on Curacao.

Hans made me feel comfortable again. And after some exercises in the water I had a great dive with Hans and my girlfriend Saskia on Curacao. Then I realised how I missed diving all those years!

Thanks Hans for making this possible again. Hope to see you soon again.

Amazing dive!
Sep. 2021
Great dive! We went to the Tug Boat dive site. This little wreck was just a small part of the experience: the reef, the corals, the pier: everything was incredible! Hans guided us to all the good spots and he knows a lot about the area. Not only is Hans a great guide, he is also doing a lot for the coral conservation. All in all a great dive!

Curious to Dive Even More!
What a great way to spend a morning. Hans was such an amazing instructor and my girlfriend and I loved interacting with him and the rest of the Curious 2 Dive crew. We spent adequate time learning how to dive safely both in and out of the water. After that, we went out deeper and saw some amazing wildlife (octopus & more), as well as a beautiful metal shipwreck.

They also provided transportation to and from our hotel and gave us some great recommendations for local food while on the road (Pops & Seaside Terrace). We tried out both and were blown away as well! Overall, it was a total blast!

Brilliant introduction to scuba diving with a wonderful guide
Jun. 2021
We took the Discover Scuba course in June 2021. One of the pleasant surprises was that as I took my 13yr son with me, Hans limited the group to the two of us to fully ensure the safety of a minor. So it was that we had his undivided attention, and he was the perfect instructor, guide, host, and photographer. He explained all the safety issues around scuba diving in a fun and friendly way that made it completely comprehensible for my son, but without ever losing sight of the fact that it is still a potentially risky activity. Then we headed out to Tugboat Bay, where we had a brilliant time in the water, saw loads of fish, and even a sea horse. Hans takes great photos which really make the experience live on for you, and are certainly photos you will want to show all your jealous friends! I can't recommend this dive shop highly enough, Hans is a total dude and also seriously concerned about the welfare of the water and its inhabitants - he took time to explain to us how he works with others on the island to reseed and rebuild the reefs.

Thanks for the review Gareth. When kids are in the program we've to watch them, they have the future. And besides that we want them to have the experience of their life. So explaining and then exercises to finish with a scuba dive. And that on the most popular dive and snorkelspot of Curacao. We hope to see you back.

Thanks for he review Geronimo. Diving is fun, so why bring a boring story about the theory. A little bit of humor makes it easier to keep the focus to prepare you for your first dive. And now it's time for some more dives. We hope to see you back.

Tugboat dive
Aug. 2021
My boyfriend and I went diving with Hans and Tom. Since we both had little/no experience with diving, it was very pleasant that Hans gave us detailed instructions beforehand. There was one instructor per two unexperienced divers. The instructors made sure we felt comfortable and safe all the time. I would recommend Curious2Dive since the instructors are professional and good company. We had a great day with them.
