Comments We dove with The Dive Bus based on reading the great reviews and recommendations from others. Those raving reviews were right on. The Dive Bus makes you feel like your diving with friends. They are so much fun to be around and are great dive guides. This was the most relaxing week of diving I have ever had. Mark, Suzy, and Holly were fantastic!

The diving was impressive. We found several sea horses on almost every dive. No large pelagics, but lots of small tropical fish and small critters. Take your time, go slow, and you'll find tons of interesting small creatures. The coral was very healthy and the viz was great.

We were not impressed with Breezes resort. We stayed at Breezes because we were able to trade our time share condo week for Breezes. I prefer to stay at smaller "dive" resorts rather than a large all-inclusive type resort. The room was clean and roomy, but we did not sleep well because of the constant noise from the activities at the resort. A loud PA systems and loud music until midnight every night. We ate a few times at Breezes and the food seemed decent.

We did a shore dive off Breezes, which is where the car pile dive site is. The car pile is interesting, but nothing to brag about. Various wreckage spread out at about 80-120'. Dive time is limited by the depth at the car pile.

Overall we had a great time in Curacao. We would probably not go back to Breezes, but would absolutely dive with The Dive Bus again! The shore diving was easy, relaxing, and great diving.
