Comments If you are looking for a small, friendly, laid back, professional dive operation you will find no better place to dive than at the Dive Bus.
Mark and Suzi go out of their way to see you have a safe and enjoyable experience. Mark is very safety conscience with detailed dive plans (dive objectives, environment, fish to identify, depth
limitations) along with a buddy check (BWRAF) prior to each dive. I did eight dives with Mark with one being a night dive. Most of the dives were at the reef located at the dive shop. This reef is excellent (both coral & fish life)and can be dove over and over again without being boring. On the nite dive we saw ruby brittle stars mating, two octopus and a couple of small squid. We dove Directors Bay (a wall dive) and saw a few well hidden scorpion fish. My last dive with the dive bus was a true awesome experience. Mark and I were asked by a Barry Brown, a professional photographer in Curacao, to participate in a heli dive photo shoot. The photo shoot went as planned thanks to professional planning performed by Barry (coralreefphotos.com)and George(blueskieshelicopter.com). I had such an enjoyable time that my wife and I are already planning to return next summer with our sons.
