The 2019 Curacao International Dive Festival: why you won't want to miss it ...

The Curacao International Dive Festival
29 September - 5 October 2019

If you’ve been waiting for the right time and/ or the right reason to make your first trip to Curacao OR return for a(nother) awesome dive vacation? 

The Curacao International Dive Festival may be just what you’ve been waiting for. 

Because it’s going to be GREAT!

According to Bryan Horne of Dive Curacao, the man behind the Curacao International Dive Festival, the objective of the week-long event is to put Curacao on every diver’s must-dive list – and keep it there.
“Curacao is truly an amazing dive vacation destination, but it’s been a well-kept secret for way too long. The Curacao International Dive Festival will showcase Curacao as an amazing dive vacation destination to the international dive community.”

An impressive and ever-increasing number of major international dive and ocean protection organizations, across the USA, Canada and Europe, have thrown their full support behind the Dive Festival, including Dive Bus buddies from PADI and Project AWARE.

Joining them is an impressive and ever-increasing number of Curacao businesses - ocean-related organizations, dive centers, hotels, restaurants, bars, shops and many others - offering special Programs, activities, Packages and offers specifically for the Curacao Dive Festival.

Including The Dive Bus šŸ˜Š:
