Comments The DIVE BUS on Curacao is a whole new kind of operation. Curacao, like its sister island, Bonaire, has lots of excellent shore diving. But unlike Bonaire it's not all laid out on one road & easy to find. These folks will pick you up at your hotel & take you & your gear to some great beach diving sites around this cool little island. Someone stays topside so you don't get your car pilfered (as happens all too often on Bonaire) and a DM gets in the water with you. They can show you some beautiful beaches that you will have all to yourself and they can be much more flexible with schedules than a regular dive boat. They are hooked up with some local boat operators so you can go "a la carte" & beach or boat dive at your own choosing. Curacao has a lot more to see & do than Bonaire (and lots of other Carribbean islands) and some great history as well. I highly reccomend the DIVE BUS & Curacao for a great vacation.
