Win friends and influence people this holiday season, with these fun gift ideas from The Dive Bus Crew.

Ho, ho, ho!

Create a new dive buddy or 2
Give the gift of diving...
Give the gift of diving to the folks you love, so they can start the New Year as certified divers - and help the ocean. because we're a 100% AWARE dive center, for every PADI dive course certification issued at The Dive Bus, we make a donation to Project AWARE and our divers receive a super cool, limited edition Project AWARE /PADI certification card.
 THIS, you have to try... 

Pimp your dive buddy

If your buddy's dive t-shirts are sooo last year, and if you're heading to Curacao before Christmas, pick up a bunch of cool Dive Bus stuff and pimp your dive buddy (and why not yourself, whilst you're at it!):

Curaçao Pride 2017: time to dive AND party!

If you dream of a Caribbean island.

Sipping a cocktail, under gently swaying palm trees, on the beach.

Watching the blue, blue ocean.

Enjoying amazing DJ's playing awesome tunes.

Dancing with fun, beautiful people...

...then it's time you checked out Curaçao Pride 2017.
Click for more info

The philosophy on the Dutch Caribbean island of Curaçao is very much "Live and Let Live" - just one of the many reasons why Curacao is so well-known in the LGBT community as a popular, gay-friendly destination.

This year marks the fifth edition of Curaçao Pride, a 4 day event filled with plenty of parties and activities, and generally having a blast. It's the perfect time for you to discover Curacao, if you haven't already - or come back and do it all over again!
If you've never dived before,
you've GOT to try this...

As if there aren't enough activities to keep you happily busy during Curacao Pride, you might want to find some time to discover and enjoy the 'other' Curacao: underwater.

One of the top shore-diving destinations in the world, you can dive the best dive sites right from Curacao's beaches - no bouncy dive boats required and no experience necessary.

The Dive Bus is Curacao's top rated dive operator on Trip Advisor, where everyone is welcome.

If you're a certified diver,
discover the best of
underwater Curacao, too...

Whether you're an experienced diver or you've never, ever tried it, all of us on The Dive Bus Crew can't wait to show you the amazing sights of Curacao that most people never get to discover... In small, friendly, relaxed and – most importantly – FUN groups.

You're going to love it. 

You can even have your Curacao dive adventures captured forever in your own personal, professional and very cool, underwater video, guaranteed to make your friends super-jealous (or bring them along too!) like this one : info:
  • Check out for more info about the Curacao Pride event that you won't want to miss.

  •  Check out, and, focusing exclusively on information for the LGBT community, helping Curacao remain one of the most welcoming destinations in the Caribbean.
