Water Sports & Land Based Activities
Curacao is not only a top dive destination. It also offers dive vacationers a wide range of land-based and water-based activities.
The GO WEST Diving Team will be happy to help you plan your days on Curacao. Spend one day going to the inhabited island of Klein Curacao; get to know the underwater world in a submarine or take a hiking tour in the beautiful Christoffel Park.
Go West Diving offers car and truck rentals as part of our Stay, Drive & Dive packages, making independent exploration a breeze.
Listed below is just a sampling of some of our favorite activities.
Standup Paddle Board Rentals
Standup Paddleboarding is a lot easier to learn than you may think! Not to mention being a whole lot of fun. Even if you’re a newbie, most people can go from kneeling to standing the first time out.
Rental prices, including the vest are US $17.00 for one hour, $30.00 for two and $42.00 for three hours. Enjoy!
Pelican Boat trips
A different tour is offered every day: Harbour Trip, Caribbean Sunset, Local Fishing Adventure, or Happy Wine Cruise. Private charters are also available!
The Sunset in the West Cruise is especially popular for our guests, since the boat departs directly from nearby Playa Kalki. Picture yourself at the most wonderful part of the island sharing the Sunset with your loved ones while you are cruising the crystal blue waters along our beautiful shore line. You will pass by our white sandy beaches : Playa Piskado , the small fishing village of Westpunt , Groot & Klein Knip, Jeremi, Lagun, Daaibooi, Santa Cruz which are surrounded by tropical hills.
