3 activities to explore the seabed of Curaçao
By Jessica Gallant
The island of Curaçao does justice to the blue liqueur of the same name. When you find yourself in the heart of this colorful Caribbean paradise, you can observe an endless blue sky and a crystal-clear sea to dream of. It is the ideal destination to experience various nautical activities and to connect in a unique way with the flora and fauna. Here are 3 nautical experiences that you absolutely must experience during a stay on the island of Curaçao.
Discover a boat wreck while snorkeling
I invite you to explore the Tugboat wreck located near Caracasbaai. It takes about 10 minutes to swim before you reach this time-frozen relic at the bottom of the water. The spectacle is quite incredible when the silhouette of the boat begins to appear before our eyes. It is then possible to swim all around to observe the corals that have formed everywhere for years. And what about the fish that have chosen this place as their home! Imagine letting yourself be carried away by the waves among the many colorful fish, all of which have different shapes and unique patterns. It really is an amazing experience!
Go on a transparent kayak
I loved experiencing a transparent kayak ride on the turquoise water bordering Curaçao. This is a great alternative to enjoy the beauty of the seabed without having to go snorkeling. Indeed, it is easy and pleasant to observe corals from your boat and it is not uncommon to see fish passing below us. And what about the view obtained on Fort Beekenburg and the surrounding area! It is a great activity to experience in complete comfort.
Swimming with turtles
Who has never dreamed of swimming with turtles? Curacao is home to different species of turtles including the green turtle. If you want to swim alongside these wonders, you should definitely go to Playa Piskado. This is an authentic fishing beach where turtles can be observed swimming from a dock or where it's possible to join them in their natural environment. That said, it is important to remember that you have to respect a certain distance with them and that you must not touch their shell so as not to affect their health. It is an enchanting setting where it is possible to live this unique experience in complete freedom.
On your future trip to Curacao, you will be amazed at the wild and vibrant beauty of this Caribbean gem. I wish you a wonderful stay filled with breathtaking sky and sea experiences.
