Explore Curaçao

Visitors love to come to our “dushi” (meaning sweet) island time and time again as it offers the perfect balance of relaxation, exploration and excitement all while honouring a blend of culture and community.

About Curaçao

Curaçao is a small piece of heaven situated in the southern Caribbean, directly in the middle of the ABC Islands (Aruba, Bonaire, Curaçao). Together with Bonaire, it is considered the shorediving capital of the world with world-class reefs off of nearly every single one of our 100+ beaches. In addition to our stellar dive sites, Curaçao has an intriguing culture beaming with delicious foods, immense history, multiple languages, and colorful European-style architecture. The biodiversity of the island’s flora and fauna is unlike any other!

Meet The Crew

Victoria Cole

PADI Course Director #259464

My name is Vicki and I started diving at the age of 10 in Antigua, in 2008 I decided to become a PADI professional and fell in love with sharing my knowledge and passion for the underwater world with all of my students. I encourage creativity and imaginative points of view. During my Pro courses, my candidates quickly gain the confidence to analyze situations and take a flexible approach to problem-solving. There is no one PADI way to do things, objectives can be achieved in many different ways. I want my candidates to teach with the same open-minded, flexible approach that I have. The key to an enjoyable pro course is discussion and plenty of it. Creating a relaxed informal atmosphere making learning fun. You won’t come out of my courses having been taught how to do things my way, you will come out with the skills you need to teach well, YOUR way
Ivana Inglesina

PADI Course Director #356300

My name is Ivana and I am an extremely passionate and dedicated PADI Course Director. I began my career as a professional diver in 2015 with a background of an international primary school teacher and sales marketing manager for a multinational company. I immediately fell in love with the PADI principles of teaching and continuous education selling. I have been working toward my dream of becoming a Course Director ever since my perception of diving and the PADI system became prevalent in my life. My true passion is to share the love of our oceans and the importance to protect them and the planet, all while maintaining the highest level of safety and fun. I pride myself on always remaining up-to-date with the latest PADI standards and teaching my students with the principles which I like to call the Three C’s: Confidence, Control, Comfort. Sharing my knowledge and experiences with my colleagues and student divers is a pleasure-come-true, and I cannot wait for the opportunity to further my level of teaching toward creating new PADI Instructors and beyond.
