Guided diving

These dives do not include diving equipment as standard. Of course, you can rent this here with us.

If you come to do multiple dives with us, we can of course give you a discount. Ask about the possibilities.

We also have our underwater camera with us during guided dives and you will receive the pictures taken for free as a nice souvenir of your dive.

At Tug Divers you rent your professional diving gear on Curacao carefree.

When renting, make sure you hold a valid diving license.


An introductory dive is the way to get acquainted with the underwater world. Ever wanted to know what it’s like to breathe underwater and float weightlessly in the water? Under professional guidance, you will take a look underwater and have an experience you will never forget without having to take an extensive course.

The introductory dive takes about 4 hours. This is part theory about diving and, of course, part practice.

After the theory session, we go to the dive site Tugboat. This is open water, but the first part is defined as enclosed water.

  • The minimum age is 10 years.
  • Incl. diving equipment & air

This is PADI’s basic open water course and takes 5 half days of diving and theory.

The “PADI Open Water Diver certification” is the most well-known diving certification worldwide. After completing this diving course, you will have an international diving license and may dive worldwide with a buddy to a depth of up to 18 meters.

For theory, we go through a book with 5 chapters and each chapter ends with a questionnaire of 10 multiple-choice questions. The last one is also the exam consisting of 50 multiple-choice questions.

  • The minimum age is 10 years.
  • Incl. teaching material
  • Incl. full diving equipment & air
  • Incl. certificate

During this course you will do 5 different Adventure Dives where you will learn different aspects of diving.

After this, you are certified to a maximum depth of 30 meters.

Haven’t dived in a while? If so, we recommend starting with a Refresh course.

We will explain the important points to you again after which we will launch together.

Diving at night is a completely different experience. You will find some fish now sleeping or relaxing. But also other animals that are active precisely at night.

Included in this particular dive is a compressed air tank and weights.

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!
