Our First Curaçao Shore Dive Video

Divers Entering Tugboat Beach

Written by David Howell

After spending 25+ years successfully leading application development activities at an enterprise level, David moved toward pursuing his own passions full-time. He travels the world with his wife, Leslie, exploring nearby shore dives and remote atolls from liveaboards. Together, they document their adventures at TropicLens.com.

Our first day of diving in Curaçao included Caracasbaai and Tugboat Beach and the nearby pier. Before coming over from Aruba, we reached out to Rebel Diving Curaçao to schedule the dives and were not only very impressed with Rebel, but the sites Daan chose for us to visit. So far this month, we have visited eleven sites and while several have impressed us, it would be hard to match the environmental diversity of Tugboat beach with its snorkel friendly shallows full of sea life, the tugboat wreck itself, a sizeable drop off/wall, a small ledge and a very large pier structure.

Leslie and I have already enjoyed this site several times and will likely dive this as one of our last dives before we leave in April. If you come to Curaçao for any length of time to dive, make sure to put this on the short list. You may just end up having a new favorite site!
