I took the Open Water Diver course with The Dive Bus just after arriving to Curaçao in a time window of four days (Thursday, Saturday an Sunday). I wrote to them over Facebook, got a quick answer and I before I knew I was diving. It was quite good; after checking if my availability was good enough to schedule the... More

Everyone was very friendly, open, knowledgeable and experienced, both in the shop and on the dives. We did two guided dives on house reef/car pile and then rented gear for an additional four days. I would use Dive Bus again personally, and recommend them for your Curacao shore diving needs!

My son and I walked in off the street looking for a good deal on upgrading our PADI certifications. I must admit I was second guessing myself about not going with the resort dive shop but I was wrong. Our instructor Ivana was crazy knowledgeable and very thorough. We have dove all around the Caribbean but as my son is... More

We very much enjoyed our shore diving experience with The Dive Bus folks this past week. This is a well organized operation and things went very smoothly for us and for others that we met diving at the shop. We had registered over the internet ahead of time. All of the details from first day pick up at the hotel,... More

Like last year we had a great time - even better. Best rental equipment. But at the the end, the staff makes the essential difference : friendly, funny, cool and very professionell. Of course, they are more divers here at Christmas holiday time, but the always give you the feeling : you are the customer number one , They know,... More

My husband and I took 4 day trips to the Tugboat (my favorite), the Car Pile, Director's Bay split between Lee, Zoey and Nanne. They provided most of our gear, we own some, and drove us to each of the locations. Everyone was so knowledgeable and wonderful to dive with! My husband even tacked on a last minute night dive...

We LOVE the Dive Bus! Mark, Ivana, Nanne, Lee and crew were great dive guides for our teenage son as he earned his PADI Advanced Open Water certification over winter break. He felt comfortable with them right away, which made us feel comfortable as parents. They take diving safety seriously and really know how to teach advanced skills, but are... More
