Prior to any boat diving activities, all divers, regardless of experience and level, will do a Welcome dive from shore. If you have a dive buddy you may dive with your buddy, if not you will join a guided Welcome dive.
Reasoning behind the welcome dive:
- Your safety
- Test your equipment and weights
- Get acquainted with the Curacao diving environment
- Enjoy your boat diving and be relaxed with all the above
Based on date of last dive and total number of dives we might request you take a short refresher course.
