Diving at Tugboat

One of the best things to do in Curaçao is, of course, diving. The island is surrounded by a beautiful clear sea, where you can spot many beautiful animals underwater. One of the most fun places to go diving is at Tugboat and we can arrange it for you!

Because many divers enter the water at Tugboat Beach every day, you meet many new people. With us there is room for everyone to dive and give courses tailored to your needs.

Tug Divers

For divers, Tugboat Beach has a partnership with the popular diving school Epsilon Dive Center Curacao.

Now divers can book the best diving courses and diving activities. And also enjoy all the facilities of Tugboat Beach.

Discover the underwater treasures of Curaçao

For the beginner

If you’ve never dived before but are curious about it? Then the Introduction Dive also known as DSD (Discover Scuba Diving) is right for you! Under the professional guidance of Tug Divers instructors, you will take a look underwater and have an experience you will never forget.

At the beginning of the dive you will of course be explained your diving equipment and how to start using it. Then it’s time to get in the water. The instructor will explain how everything works after which you will quietly begin the dive.

One of the best things I’ve ever done. The photos don’t do it justice – there are way more fish, and the coral and colours are way more beautiful than any photo. The team are super knowledgeable and very chill, this is the best spot on the island to hang out and dive. Everyone dreams of flying, don’t they? Well, it’s like that. But with more colours.

Ken is an amazing scuba instructor!!! His happy and calm, laid back personality, instantly put me at ease. My once anxiety, quickly dissapated into feeling proficient and one with the water. He welcomed any and all questions I and had an answer for everything! He knows his stuff! All da stuff!!!He also takes incredible underwater pictures!!

Experienced and passionate instructor. Very patient with the children. Only goes down if everyone knows the theory and has mastered the skills. Doesn’t matter if it takes a little longer. Very nice dive with the highlight of seeing the tugboat up close. Highly recommended if you stay on this beautiful island!

Diving courses

You can take various diving courses courses. We do not maintain a fixed schedule in this. We believe it is important to plan together with you. From open water to dive master course, from wreck diver to night diver. Whatever you want, it’s possible with us! Do you also feel like diving with us soon? Then book right away and we’ll see you soon!

Guided diving

Already got your scuba certification but haven’t dived for a while? Then we can imagine it would be nice to have an instructor with you.

He or she can then give you a

refresher course

and show you the unique spots underwater! In this way you become familiar with diving again.

Of course, you can also dive under supervision if you are looking for a dive buddy.

Concerned with the environment

Besides the fact that we at Tug Divers love diving, we also really love nature. Since 2013, we have been one of the proud co-organizers of the Curaçao Clean Up Foundation.

With this foundation, we help make Curaçao cleaner on land and sea.

The beach is “nothing” and the view of the oil platform is a bit Mad Max-likeBut the snorkeling spot is even better.Large schools of fish around and in the boat.

Great beach with a small bar and beds.Very friendly atmosphere.Snorkeling is top notch – schools of fish will surround you.

The shore is primarily rocky with limited sandy space, and the lounge chairs appear quite dated; unsure if they’ve been recently upgraded. There’s an onsite restaurant, and the snorkeling experience is enjoyable, featuring vibrant fish and the fascinating sight of a tug boat. Caution is advised due to occasional jellyfish presence; I’ve experienced a painful sting before due to my strong allergic reaction. Entry is free, but there’s a fee for lounge chair rental.

I think it’s great if you only go diving, but if you don’t then you will be looking at this huge oil rig eyesore the whole time during your beach time.

The BEST place to snorkel and see the marine life. With a boat wreck as a treasure at the end.It is possible to do it without the fins, as there is no strong current or surge.

Very cool snorkeling around the tugboat! The fish and wildlife are the same that you see everywhere else. The beach is small, with some lounge chairs you can rent, and you can get a drink, snacks, or paint drift wood. We just went snorkeling and left, there are better beaches to lounge at, but definitely recommend getting in the water! I recommend stopping at Fort Beekenburg for a quick walk around on the way

Nice little beach on the end of a road. Little shack selling snacks and drinks. Plenty of chairs to lounge on. A lot of snorklers and divers here to look at the underwater features. Fun addition if you are artistic. They have driftwood you can paint yourself.
