Diving here can not be compared to diving any other site on Curaçao. ‘Everything is bigger here’ is often heard as a first reaction of the happy few that dove here.
The structure of the reef is entirely different from the reef along the southern coastline. The top of the reef formed a plateau covered with sea grass and algae that runs to the drop-off. You will find the drop-off to be further out into the sea and at greater depth than on the southern side. It gradually drops of to a depth of around 30 meters / 100 feet where it drops into a plateau of bright white sand. The reef is covered with huge mountainous star coral formations.
Expect to see a great variety of marine life. In between the rocks you can find big lobster and huge green moray eels. The sea grass on the top of the reef attracts all the three sea turtle species that live in Curaçao’s waters. At the base of the gentle slope, above the white sandy flat you can find both southern stingray and spotted eagle ray. Occassionally nurse sharks and caribbean reef sharks are seen. Furthermore, you can find a number of species of reef fish that you hardly ever see on the southcoast of the island.
The current here can be strong which again means drift diving. The boat will follow the divers on the surface while they drift along the reef. Again we ‘go with the flow’.
