Explore the Caribbean waters which surround Curacao on this active aquatic kayaking and snorkel shore excursion! Suitable for all ages enjoy a snorkel by a sunken tugboat as well as kayaking near Fort Beekenburg with its picturesque views. This Curacao kayaking cruise excursion is perfect for those looking to discover Curacao both above and below the water's surface.

Meet your kayak and snorkel cruise excursion guide by the cruise pier and take a 30-minute transfer on air-conditioned transport to the kayaking and snorkeling base office in Caracas Bay. On arrival, there are restrooms available; lockers can be rented at an additional cost of $2.00USD.

The guides will show you how to paddle the sit-on-top kayaks and give you safety instructions. They will assist your small group on their kayaks for a quick practice before heading out in the bay. They will lead the group from the base and along the shoreline. You will see an old manorial estate and Fort Beekenburg, a well-preserved fort that was originally built in 1703 to protect the inner bay. Paddling is at a relatively moderate pace.

For the snorkeling segment of your Curacao Guided Kayak and Tugboat Wreck Snorkel Excursion, the guides will pass out your snorkeling gear and show you how to use it (mask, fins, snorkel, and optional inflatable snorkel vest). Then they will lead you to explore over tugboat shipwreck, located on the protected southeast side of Caracas Bay. The tugboat, which sank 25 years ago, is home to a wide array of marine life. It is common to see colorful corals and schools of tropical fish when snorkeling here. The wreck if fairly shallow. Do not forget to bring your waterproof camera!

After the snorkeling, your excursion guide will lead you in the kayaks back to the base in Caracas Bay where your ground transport will be waiting to drive you back to your Curacao cruise pier.

All snorkel and kayak equipment is included. Guests must be in good physical condition to participate in this shore excursion. The kayaks are shared kayaks that hold 2 people each. There are beverages included - bottled water, juice, and soft drinks.

We were the only kayakers on this tour (others took jet ski or boat to the dive site.) It was a workout to paddle out but the current & wind helped on the way back. The wreck area was not crowded. Disappointed that no swim fins were available...made swim from the beach more work. Overall, a pleasant adventure.

We had a wonderful day in Curacao. The guides were wonderful and took excellent care of us. The snorkeling was fabulous and the kayaking was easy for beginners like us. All in all, I can't say enough wonderful things about this group.

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!

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.
