We wanted to experience diving for the first time but didn't want to have to off a boat so the Dive Bus shore dive was perfect for beginners. The group included my wife, brother and his wife. Our dive instructor Ivana was awesome. Diving for the first time there is a lot to learn and remember so you can get... More

The Dive Bus PADI Discover Scuba Dive experience was outstanding. We had a small group which instilled confidence that we had the individual attention we needed. Our instructor/guide had 40 years of extensive experience and he explained everything we needed to know for this dive in a way that was easy to understand and remember. The dive itself was amazing!... More

Great little dive operation - first day was just a walk across the street for the two dives. Dive sites were nice, lots to see, corals were in good shape. Second day was on the Tugboat and the Piers. Both nice dives as well, easy shore entries. Lots of 'debris' around the Piers; however sort of expected. Mark was an... More

At the end of December my daughter and I received our “Scuba Diver” certification at the Dive Bus. Not being as young in my body as I am in my mind, I was worried about being able to complete the course. Nanne, our Instructor was awesome. I would not have been able to do this without him. Thank you Nanne... More

We went to the dive bus to rent out some gear for a fun dive together. Owner helped us and was really laided back and social, helped us set up the gear and gave us some tips for the reef in front of the shop. That reef is fine for us starters but watch the current! Equipment is fine, the... More

This is one friendly dive shop. They were very accommodating when our dive schedule changed. The shop is just across the street from the beach where you enter the water and it is not a challenging walk whatsoever even when fully geared up. Their house reef is spectacular, so don't think that just because you are not driving somewhere that... More

We had an absolutely fantastic experience with everyone associated with the Dive Bus. Our guide Lee was wonderful, informed, fun, patient and perfect for helping make our experience on Curacao a dream. We had an easy walk to the beach for our shore dives which were beautiful and provided us with lots of interesting marine life and a wreck to... More

Our experience at The Dive Bus was unforgettable! We couldn't have picked a better place to learn how to dive. Our instructor was awesome! Ivana was a patient teacher and was able to perform miracles with a couple of middle age divers. Many thanks to the rest of the staff for I couldn't have done it without you. I highly... More
