Looking for a fun, relaxed, safe and professional scuba diving experience in one of the TOP Caribbean shore-diving destinations? Small dive groups led by friendly, experienced PADI dive professionals? You're in the right place! Established in 2005, The Dive Bus is a PADI 5 Star Dive Resort, the first in Curacao to specialise in shore diving - guided or independent - at the best of Curacao's shore dive sites. So why not take a PADI dive course with us too and get even more out of your diving? From PADI Discover Scuba Dives (Intro Dives) through to professional level PADI Divemaster, our groups are small and friendly to guarantee personal attention and quality service. There's also have a fully stocked dive retail shop on-site and a fridge full of cold beers and sodas to help keep you hydrated! Hope to see you (again!) sooooon :)

My reason to visit the dive bus shop was for information and a few small items of dive stuff. The service was pleasant and very informative. They have a lot of dive items and know the dive sites well.

Yeah. You don't have to have a certification. It was my first time and they were very knowledgeable and professional.

There are good dive spots all over the island and no single resort is close to all of them. We stayed at the Sunscape and the Dive Bus was right across the street. There was a dive site at the Sunscape where we did 3 dives.
