What to expect
Upon arrival at our dive center, you will meet your instructor, the instructor will guide you during this introduction dive. After the diving equipment is appropriate it's time to explain to you the basics of diving, so you will prepare your dive equipment and learn the dive marks for underwater. Now it is ready to drive to the dive site. Before you start diving you will first explain in the water how you can clear your mask and find your machine. Through these exercises, you become more familiar with your equipment and you feel more comfortable in the water. When these exercises are done, we start step by step in our dive. First, we look in the shallow part of the sea what it is like to breathe underwater if this goes well we are ready to start our dive. During the dive, the instructor ensures that you are completely at ease so that you can fully enjoy your time underwater. Because our introduction dives mainly consist of small groups, the instructor has plenty of time to make your dive as pleasant and fun as possible. After this introductory dive, you are richer in a unique experience.

Amazing time, definitely coming back
Mar 2020
My daughter (17) and I (53) both LOVED this. I have always wanted to scuba dive and just never did. I signed us up for this and we have a great memory for the rest of our lives. We had Monique as our instructor and she was perfect. She was patient and knowledgeable and really took her time showing us everything we needed to know. We learned about the gear needed, how to assemble it all and how it functions. Then we were in the water in no time. We spent some time at the beach in shallow water getting used to the breathing, and before you know it we were exploring a sunken ship. Neither of us had ever done Scuba before. I would recommend this to everyone (if you can swim). And definitely go to this place- there are many. They really make it fun, and only go out in small groups. It was just my daughter and I and the instructor. I could go on and on, but do yourself a favor and book with Duikcentrum- you will be so happy you did. And then cross this off the bucket list. Thanks again Monique, you have a life long customer when we get back to Curacao!

Excellent experience!
Mar 2018 • Family
I came from Bulgaria with my family and was diving for the first time but the professional and very detailed instructions from the diving school instructor made it very easy. In the same time the pre briefing was done in very relaxed and friendly manner which made your fears to disappear immediately. I had really nice experience and definitely can recommend this diving school to anyone. All tourists without health problems should put the diving in their to do list if possible while on vacation. Thank you Angelique!

Diving base with super service
We spent 3 weeks diving on Curaçao in September and rented only tanks and weights at the "Divecenter van de Ven", this was absolutely individual and hassle-free. Angelique has inspired us with her nice manner and always gave us valuable tips to the respective dive sites. Absolutely recommendable and any time again.
Stay healthy Mario & Mary

We had an amazing time! Neither my husband or myself are scuba certified or had ever dived in open water before, but we both felt super comfortable after the detailed instructions. This was the highlight of our trip! Would definitely recommend!
