You will visit one of the top ten snorkel and dive sites and an incredible historic site of Curacao.
Meet your English-speaking guide at the cruise terminal and take a 25-minute ride on board a 4WD open-air vehicle along the scenic coast of the Curacao Island.
On arrival to your snorkel site, you will be fitted comfortably with your snorkel equipment. Your experienced snorkel guide will cover some safety points as well as give tips on how to get the most out of your excursion.
Once you are set, you will follow your guide into the water and prepare to explore the wonderful underwater world. Beginning with an impressive shallow drop- off reef, you will see colorful coral formations and tropical fish, relax in the calm waters or float with the wave movement. Keep watch for sea turtles gliding through the water!
Continue on to the site of the "Tugboat" wreck – a 30ft long boat that sits 17ft upright on the bottom of the ocean. With over 30 years sunken on the bottom, you will see the coral-encrusted wreck along with numerous marine life living on it such as Christmas Tree Worms. Snorkel over it or hold your breath and swim down to get a closer look. Be sure to bring your waterproof camera as many fish visit the wreck hoping to get a handout snack from snorkelers. No previous experience is required to snorkel due to the shallow and calm waters. Bottled water and lemonade are included.
Once dry again, you will get back in your transportation and head to the historic site of Fort Beekenburg, built in 1703. Located at Caracasbaai Beach, the fort was used to protect the island from pirates and enemy nations, you can climb all the way to the top of the tower. The stones, which the tower are made out of, were originally shipped from the Netherlands to Curacao. Enjoy the amazing views over the island!
The transportation and guide will return to your Curacao cruise terminal.

Howard met us at our cruise terminal and took us to a small beach with fantastic snorkeling right off the beach in calm shallow water. Beautiful coral and tropical fish. He then took us to a sunken tugboat which was interesting but then took us a little further out to a stunning ledge with huge fans and tons of fish. Howard is a free diver who swam with us and went out of his way to point out things we would never have seen on our own. We ended with a short trip to an old fort. Howard is very knowledgeable on a variety of subjects and very entertaining. My wife and I have snorkeled on many of the islands in the Caribbean and this ranks near the top. If you go, demand Howard as you guide. You will not be disappointed and the price is very reasonable.
