.13 years ago we "Johan & Monique" came to Curaçao and immediately fell in love with the island and of course the underwater life.
This led to the establishment of Duikcentrum van de Ven on 20 July 2010.
For several years now we can call ourselves a real Brabants Family company because of our daughter "Angelique" and our son-in-law "Gerard" work as diving instructors at our diving center.
We offer all types of SSI diving courses & specialties and guided dives in various places on Curaçao
With us, YOU are central and you are not part of mass production.
The individual attention to each customer is important and our role is 'We simply want to be your buddy who is not in a rush or has to watch his clock because the next group is coming.
We do not work with a fixed schedule but are happy to look at your schedule (provided it also fits into our schedule).
