Comments I would highly recommend The Dive Bus for anyone who wants to experience Curacao's best shore diving. They will pick you up at your hotel and provide all the equipment you need. Keep in mind; it is all shore diving, so there are short walks to the water. The reefs are close to shore, so swims are very short.
The best part of diving with The Dive Bus is they make everyone feel like you are their friends. I can't remember having a more enjoyable dive experience with any other dive operator. Even my wife, who is a non-diver, was treated special. She really enjoyed talking to them. They go out of their way, in my opinion, to may the dives fun but safe. Even when I was shut out by another dive operator on the island, they were able to accommodate me, so I didn't miss a day of diving. I noticed a lot of repeat customers.
I will dive with them again, on my return to Curacao.
