Do an introduction dive with us and if it’s satisfactory this is your first step to certification.
CURious2DIVE is affiliated to 4 different organizations, SDI, WOSD, IAHD and PADI.
With WOSD, clients in the Netherlands have the possibility to to start theory at home and keep the dive center posted through internet. When arriving at Curacao, it’s examination and the confined and open water exercises.
We also provide all PADI and SDI courses from Open water to Dive-master. Instructor course ask about the possibilities.
Through the IAHD, we are specialized to dive with people with a handicap, but besides diving we also train and educate people with or without a handicap to a certified diver or dive partner.
For the kids we have a special club, from the age of 5 we start with SASY and from 8 with Bubble-maker.

I was fortunate to get to dive with Hans at Curious2dive. Hans is expert at spotting sea life and he is quite the photographer too! We dove Tugboat and Directors Bay and I saw turtles, eels, sea horses, cleaner shrimp, barracuda and more! Amazing! Hans knows everything about the island. The best is Hans sent me the photos! Most dive shops charge an exorbitant amount for pics.

After a disappointing visit at another dive center, me and my wife visited Curious2dive.
I wish we visited them a few years earlier! The two dives we had with Hans were very nice. Hans knows a lot about the dive sites and knows where to find the nice marine life. During our dive he even took pictures which were also really nice.
Will definately visit them again !

A GREAT diving experience!
Visit Date: January 2013
We completed 6 dives with Hans. He is a local who knows the island and knows the diving! He takes small groups and makes it a very personal experience.
Everything is done safely and efficiently. Hans let us plan the itenarary and was very accommodating. Our max bottom time was 90 min (the most we have ever had with a guide). He also rinsed the gear, fixed my mask, looked for my lost snorkel, and just made it a personal experience.
Nice guy, passionate about diving, and runs a great operation. Knows where to look for marine life and gets to the dive sites before anyone else!

We booked online through email / gTalk months earlier. Curious2Dive was waiting for us right outside the port and promptly drove us to their dive center. We did scheduled both a day a night dive. My girlfriend and I consider ourselves to be new divers and felt safe the entire time. Before the dives, Hans pulled out a hand painted map of where we were going, what to expect, and what hand signals they will use to indicate where we were. When we were gearing up on site on both dives, the guide would help us with our gear and tell us how to enter the water. The day dive started near their commercial boating area. Highlights included a ship wreck, large tarpon, and a sea turtle. We dove ~16 meters / 52 ft. We brought our own underwater camera which has a 15m depth limit. Our guide made sure to tell whoever was holding the camera to level off so they didn't exceed 15m.
We walked to a nearby lunch place (blue building) about 5 minutes away which had great authentic Caribbean food. Though I don't recall the name, I'm sure Hans can point you in the right direction.
After we returned we were prepping for our night dive. We went to a different dive spot that was about 15 minutes away. Hans accidentally forgot one of his flippers, and had to drive back for it, which was no big deal at all, we still had a full scuba experience. The night dive is more eerie but fun. We encountered lots of lobster, crabs, and other fish which I can't even begin to name.
Best part about it all? Hans took photos and sent them to us on Google+, all included in the price.
Would we go back? Yes.

Wow, what a great time. Hans was amazing. He runs a great shop and is an expert master. I can't recommend the shop more highly. A great experience.
I arranged the dive on my own. I visited the island on a cruise. Hans picked me up at the dock and drove me back after the dives. Great service
