My husband and I booked a two tank shore dive with the Dive Bus during our stay in May. We are both advanced open water but only dive about once a year. What a fantastic operation - it's obvious why they're 5 star. They have a clean, well-maintained, air conditioned building and bathroom. All the gear is immaculately maintained, labeled,... More

We did the PADI online eLearning course before arriving in Curacao were able to get PADI Open Water Certified in two days with The Dive Bus. We then opted to do another dive with The Dive Bus and it was awesome! Both the certification dives and dives afterwards were amazing and would definitely recommend diving with The Dive Bus.

If you take diving seriously but like to have fun at the same time, the dive bus is your best choice. There is always time for a laugh. Just be careful to take their simple house rules in mind because a violation will cost you a beer (after diving of course)

To really enjoy diving and give nature your best dive bus is the place to be. Every month a cleanup at a different location with nice people with the same idea about taking care for underwater life.

What an awesome experience we had doing the discover scuba dive with The Dive Bus! We came to Curacao for the day while on a cruise. After reading all the excursions through the cruise company nothing tickled our fancy so I got on Trip Advisor. The Dive Bus was ranked at the top of their list for water activities. Upon... More

Ending our "dive cruise" in Curacao we were hosted by the Dive Bus crew. The booking and communication beforehand was smooth and timely. The crew was professional and the equipment was in excellent condition. The price for a three dive day was very reasonable. The shore dives were each preceded by a well communicated dive plan, a review of bar... More
