For this full dive day to Curacao’s West Point, you can choose from:
- Dive 1: Playa Piskadó
- Dive 2: Playa Kalki, Playa Lagun or Cas Abao Beach
Upon arrival at Dive Center Scuba Do, your divemaster/guide for the day will welcome you and after a short introduction and filling out the waivers, gather all the required gear for the dives ahead. Our dive bus will take us to the first dive spot: Playa Piskadó, located in WestPoint.
Playa Piskadó (aka. Playa Grandi) is a working fishermen’s beach and home to an incredible amount of sea turtles. Sea Turtle Conservation Curacao has given a name to each sea turtle, which you can see on an information board at the beach entrance. When entering the water, you see sea turtles right away, guaranteed. Also, there is a chance of seeing a group of hundreds of horse mackerel, locally known as masbangu. The reef itself is a beautiful, vibrant reef, overflowing with life, colorful fish and incredible coral. A sponge encrusted statue of King Neptune watches over Playa Piskadó
Playa Kalki, also known as “Alice in Wonderland”, is accessible via a fairly steep staircase of approx. 25 steps. The beach consists of a large amount of coral rocks, so we recommend you wear diving boots. The reef is hilly and you will find big mushroom shaped formations of boulder star coral, stove pipe sponges, brown tube sponges as well as swarms of creole wrasses and blue tangs. If you are lucky you can see green sea turtles and eagle rays
Playa Lagun is a unique inlet, to be found between two high rock walls. The reef itself is a beautiful reef that has a mixture of all kind of coral and an abundance of fish and other sea creatures, starting from the shoulder of the reef to the bottom of the reef. When turning around and getting close to the shallow part of the reef you have the chance to see turtles again.
