    What to Expect
    Your Discover Scuba Dive starts with a 30 to 45 minute lesson at our dive shop. In this lesson you'll learn how to put your dive equipment together and other basic diving skills.

    Once you are all set then you are ready to go to the dive location.

    Before you will start with the dive, you will get to try and experience what it's like to breathe underwater. Once you feel confident enough, your instructor takes you to explore the underwater world, up to a maximum depth of 39 feet (12 meters).

    When you dive, you will follow behind your tour guide in a small group, enjoying customized attention and the flexibility to move at your own pace while you get used to being underwater and practice diving techniques.

    You will experience first-hand beautiful coral and Caribbean fish on this experience.

    If you choose for a 2-tank Discover Scuba Dive, you come back from the first dive and then you have a one-hour Lunch-break ( Lunch is not included ). In the afternoon we go to the Caracasbaai.

    The beach of Caracasbaai is made of coarse sand and pebbles and is popular for snorkeling and diving because of its part of the underwater park. Also popular with the island residents.

    During the dive at the Caracasbaai, you will also find different types of coral, such as the pipe corral. maximum depth of this Discover Scuba Dive is 39 feet (12 meters).

    Does it seem great to take a dive, but do you think it is just too exciting?

    Would it help if you can watch with your own instructor whether diving is reserved for you?

    At Duikcentrum van de Ven you have the possibility to make the Discover Scuba Diving completely private. All attention to you!

    We spent 3 weeks diving on Curaçao in September and rented only tanks and weights at the "Divecenter van de Ven", this was absolutely individual and hassle-free. Angelique has inspired us with her nice manner and always gave us valuable tips to the respective dive sites.

    We had an amazing time! Neither my husband or myself are scuba certified or had ever dived in open water before, but we both felt super comfortable after the detailed instructions. This was the highlight of our trip! Would definitely recommend!
