Atraction not to be missed!
We started the day with the kayaing to get to the sunken tugboat location. The padeling was a bit chalenging at first but easy to catch up, and our guide Tony was helpful the whole time. This part of the tour is slow paced and relaxing, as you admire the coastline and current slowly takes you. It was a beautiful view and quite relaxing experience. We arrived to the tugboat location where Tony passed out our snorkel gear and gave us a brief introduction and safety instructions. Our group has snorkel experience so we were on our way. I read that this was one of the main touristy places in Curacao but it was great to see that we had the reef all to ourselves - 7 friends-so we had room to snorkel and explore. It was one of the best experience. So much fish swimming around us. The boat is small but it was so amazing to see how it slowly setling in with the reef and coral. It attract so much fish . I finaly discovered why is one of the main atraction in Curacao and glad we got to explore.

The shipwreck snorkel is an activity you cannot pass on when visiting Curaçao. I have visited 3 times already. It's one of the best places to snorkel and theres plenty action, tons of fish and coral. On my 3rd visit I found this excursion (https://www.shoreexcursioneer.com/curacao/kayak-wreck-snorkel.html) that includes kayak. You have to kayak to the site which was really fun and different for me!
