RS Kuhn's Dive Log
Vaersen Bay on 9/17/2003
All the facilities were closed. Small beach area and no entry fee. There are stairs leading to the water. Very good parking close by. Worth a dive or 2. Probably would not stay the day. Closer than a lot of sites further west. Can be a little rough at surface as its not as well protected as some other sites.
Cas Abao on 9/17/2003
Entry fee required. Free showers, parking, bathroom, Food. Shade and a great beach. Do at least 2 dives here. A short swim to the dark blue water. A very good dive from a nice beach. Bring along or buy lunch and stay the day. 5 Min. swim to the reef.
Playa Kalki (Alice in Wonderland) on 9/17/2003
Great shore dive site on the far west end of Curacao. Only 2 other sites are further West (Mushroom Forest & Watamulla). Not crowded. Lots of parking. All West Dive Shop has rinse tanks and tank rentals at this site. Rent tanks from All West and use their shower and rinse tanks. Short swim to reef. Do not miss this one. Small beach. Bring along a lunch and drinks.
Port Marie on 9/17/2003
Small Entry fee but great beach, chairs, showers, umbrellas, lots of parking. A double reef system. Bring along at least 2 tanks. Dive shop is at site. Bathrooms, food are available. Plan on staying the whole day and do several dives. A not to be missed dive on Curacao. This area can be very crowded on weekends or during busy season. Easy dive for all levels of divers. It's like a big fish bowl. You can dive inside the bowl or around the outside reef. Lots of great diving here.
Daaibooi on 9/17/2003
Free site, Showers, bathrooms and food were closed. Dive shop near entrance. Decent parking and shade. A VERY long swim to reef/drop-off. 10+ min. swim. Small cove entry area and beach. A small boat is sunk in the bay on the east side in about 15 ft. of water. Decent snorkeling site well protected. Other good sites have shorter swim to reef.
