Everything about Curaçao is a riot of color, from Willemstad’s historic buildings and iconic floating market to the island's vibrant art scene and lively carnival schedule. The colors continue as you wade from white sand beaches into blue waters to discover the dazzling coral reefs that ring the island in garlands of orange, purple and yellow sponges and sea fans. Cooled by trade winds and sitting outside the hurricane belt, Curaçao is an ideal destination any time of year. The Colonial-era buildings, narrow cobblestone streets, and stone fortresses of the old town have made the United Nations' World Heritage list, and the island deserves a place on your “must visit” list.

What's the diving like?

For a preview of Curaçao's reefs, stroll through the historic district of Willemstad, where colonial-era buildings display cheerful shades of orange, yellow and red. These colors are mirrored in the prolific groves of soft corals and sponges that cover the island's submerged slopes. Equally brilliant is the marine growth that coats Curaçao's premier wreck, the Superior Producer. Whether making a shore dive on memorable sites such as Alice in Wonderland, or going by boat to ride the currents at Watamula, divers have a range of depths and topographies to choose from, with shallow coastal shelves giving way to drop-offs that hold an abundance of fish life.

The vast majority of Curaçao's diving takes place on the southern and western coasts. Coral reefs begin close to shore and follow slopes to depths beyond 200 feet. Sites at the island's eastern end have the steepest slopes, with some becoming vertical, while the western ends offer more gradual slopes, consistently calm water and large coral heads. A number of prime sites can be reached from shore, while boat diving provides easier access to a broader range of sites. Waters dip into the high 70s in winter, with summer temperatures rising to the mid 80s.
