I was lucky enough to earn my open water diver certification through Duikcentrum Van De Ven. Monique and Angelique showed me an adventure that I will never forget! They offered me personalized attention and took special care to ensure my safety and comfort. I highly recommend this Dive Center to anyone looking to be certified or just check out the wonderous underwater world of Curacao! I found wonderful new friends in Monique and Angelique, and I can't wait to visit them again in the future. Bedankt my friends!

Had the opportunity to complete a couple of SSI specialties during my trip with Monique and it was great! Monique is very knowledgable and thorough with her instruction, so will be super for people really looking to refine their skills and/or advance in their diving goals! We were able to log good dive times and the experience was very relaxed and tailored to the learner's goals.

The shore dives at Carcasbaai and Tugboat were beautiful, water was calm and warm. We also dove at Car Pile/Marie Pampoen, which is a really neat site. We got lucky to see , moray eels, several flamingo tongue snails, a southern sting ray, loads of pistol shrimp, arrow crabs, brittle sea stars, a flying gurnard, and a hawksbill sea turtle in addition to the tons of fish.

Highly recommend if you are looking for a safe and relaxing experience where you can log good dive times at some fantastic sites!

I recently was over from the UK for a wedding and decided to get my SSI open water certification with Angelique and couldn't be more happy with it! I did the private training over 2 days and she was a brilliant instructor. Patient, calm, friendly, helpful, everything you'd want from a teacher. They picked me up in the morning from the Jan Thiel neighbourhood on both days and we did 4 great dives, 2 dives each day going to a different spot or route each time, with the test on the second day at lunch. We did all the skills at my pace and there was no pressure at all, which for a skill like diving which could be quite scary for some people, is a big help!

The price was very reasonable especially for what a great time you have and for the price difference doing it private made the most sense to me.

If you're in Curacao and want a safe, friendly, knowledgeable, and great time at a good price, This is the place! no need to look elsewhere!

Thanks again guys!

My son and I had fabulous shore dives. Lots to see and the reefs and water were awesome. Our dive leader was professional, attentive and would most definitely dive with them again!
