The snorkeling was excellent! The beaches are not huge but very beautiful and the water is crystal clear. The giant turtles were amazing. We had plenty of time in each area to enjoy the site. Would love to do this tour again!

Swimming with sea turtles & Grote Knip Beach - Best cruise excursion
Fun Experience !!
, Feb 2020
The meeting place "Starbucks" was a helluva lot further than a 3 minute walk !!
There were a lot of steps to climb to the beaches & bathroom facilities were poor!!
BUT the swimming with the turtles was GREAT & the equipment was good !!
Had good time !!
Swimming with the turtles was great. The tour along the way was also a nice unexpected part of the tour. We learned some of the history of the island and stopped to get pictures of the pink flamingos up close. The beach was beautiful. The guide transferred 60+ photos of the turtles to our phone the same day. This is by far the best tour ever.
THE ORIGINAL! PICTURES FOR FREE! A/C BUS

From far away you can spot the bounty sunlit island and its old iconic lighthouse. Upon arrival at Klein Curacao, the crystal-clear water is calm, perfect for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. Although the dry way to get to shore from the catamaran is by dinghy, we recommend you grab a snorkel and swim to shore! Upon going into the water, you will immediately spot many colorful fish and turtles all around you! Between May and August, you may even see baby sea turtles making their way from the sandy beach into the clear ocean water.
When you get ashore, explore the island while blissfully sunbathing along the way. The distance from the beach to the lighthouse, shipwrecks and ruins is not too far for a walk. At noon, the crew is ready to serve you up an extensive BBQ buffet. Enjoy drinks from the open bar.
At 3:00 pm we set sail, waving goodbye to this Caribbean pearl and on the wings of the wind head back to Curacao.

Congrats, you’ve just clicked on one of the top things to do in Curaçao!
We're committed to giving you the most beautiful underwater tour and the best guest experience!
We take pride in having the best guest service and satisfaction ratings on the island. That's why Aquafari is your best choice for underwater sea-cruising in Curacao.
Any living creature who hasn’t grown gills like fish, has this main worry before going underwater: "How do I breathe?" Being asked to put your face in the water and inhale can be scary. Luckily, at Aquafari you won’t have to. We will let you breathe naturally. Underwater! This eco-friendly underwater scooter features a bell-shaped glass container that is supplied with oxygen from a scuba-dive tank, which is attached to the front of the scooter. This tank supplies enough oxygen for the entire duration of the trip.
Aquafari is a fun way for non-scuba divers to experience the underwater world and experience the great sensation of breathing underwater.
We wanted to get the lay of the island at the start of our vacation so we booked our private tour the day after our arrival. Ray was our tour guide and met us promptly at our resort. We had a few sites in mind and he was very helpful in making some recommendations also. Ray was very informative about the culture and sights. He was accommodating and very open to making changes and did not rush us through the day. We really truly enjoyed our day!
Our guide Ray took us around the island in a very relaxed and informative way. No stress and a trip entirely on our conditions. He was very knowledgeable and helpsome. I can recommend the experience as a good way to see Curacao, without having to be stuffed into a bus.
Our guide took us all over Curacao! He was very knowledgeable, personable and up for taking us anywhere. We arrived from a cruise and with clear directions were able to find our guide. We learned so much throughout this tour all while having fun. Although we didn't come very prepared, this tour can be customized to whatever you would like to do while on the island. Definitely recommend, even if you are just there for the day- with the information given and being able to see a lot of destinations, it's a win-win! Thanks again!!

With 8 in our group, we were provided with ATVs in excellent condition that were easily handled by all from age 16-50. Our tour included on and off road from one side of the island to the other. Our guides were pleasant, helpful and accommodating. Best shore excursion we have done on our 10 cruises. HIGHLY recommended!

Fast Powerboat adventure to the beautiful island of Klein Curacao. With our RIB-boats you do not have to worry about sea sickness, which is the #1 thing that makes us stand out.

This Powerboat adventure is perfect for thrillseekers that want to see Klein Curacao but do not want to spend a long, exhausting day there.

This also means that we sometimes may have to cancel your trip due to the conditions on sea.
On Klein Curacao you can spot sea turtles, walk around on the island, explore the lighthouse and relax on the beautiful white sand. Enjoy a Caribbean lunch: a delicious burger, salads and fruits, served on the beach.
I was a little concerned at initial booking because I received conflicting emails about price and time. I did get direct emails assuring me that the time and price were correct. The driver was at the port at the correct time and we met with Jay, our driver at the floating bridge. He gave us a wonderful tour of the city, pointing out interested sights for us. He was very accommodating and answered all our questions. I would book with them again.
Our driver Jay gave us a great tour of Curacao! He gave us excellent information about the city and was very friendly.I recommend scheduling this tour for when you first get off the ship so that you can get ideas for what to do in town after the tour. I easily located our tuktuk, but I did have to go up to him and ask if he was our driver.
Our driver informed us at the end of the tour that we would not be returned to our departure point, contrary to the information in the tour listing which states "Returns to original departure point." Where we were dropped off was not far from the cruise terminal, but we were joining back up with friends which who had gone out of their way to meet us back by the cruise terminal, which caused an inconvenience.
I recommend to the tour company that your drivers have a sign (the way limo drivers do at the airport) to indicate the client they are meeting for a more comfortable introduction.
When your cruise ship docks in Curacao, ride a Tuk Tuk through Willemstad, a UNESCO World Heritage-listed city.

Nick the Man !!!
, Feb 2020
We were cruising on the NCL Epic and booked this excursion from home. We had no problems getting to the site. When we arrived there was a minor problem with a weight limit for our 2 person Jet Ski trip but it was quickly resolved. We had Nick as our tour guide. He was friendly and well informed about local information as he showed us the local area VIA our Jet skis. The tour concluded with us snorkeling a nearby wreck. My only recommendation is that the driver of the jet ski should be experienced riding in choppy water and getting on and off a jet ski in open choppy water. We would highly recommend Nick and Adrenaline Tours Curacao.
Marianna heads up an amazing team at Adrenaline Water Sports! Kevin was our tour guide on this last minute trip. He was funny, informative and a lot of fun. We spent an hour zipping around on high end jet skis, then spent another hour snorkeling. The rate was very fair and the experience was unforgettable. I wouldn’t even think of booking with another tour group, Adrenaline was awesome.
After your cruise ship docks in Curacao's port, explore the island's waters on a 2-person aquaboat or Jet Ski.

Booked a last minute trip and it was fantastic! Definitely enjoyed meeting the ostriches, even-though they were a little rough (I’m sure they’re trying to be friendly) because ostriches.
Our tour guide was knowledgeable and answered all of my questions.
The Ostrich Safari tour takes you over the farm, which is located in a beautiful area on the road to Groot St. Joris in Santa Catharina. The Ostrich Farm stands for fun for the whole family and makes you experience the feel of South Africa. Get up close and personal with the ostriches and learn all there is to know about them.
Our tour takes you across the farm in a safari truck and during the tour you will encounter all stages in the life of ostriches. Our guide will take you through all these stages, from egg, to baby ostrich to adult. Find out all facts and funny details about ostriches. The tour starts every hour.
At the farm you will also find a couple of emu (Australian ostriches) and during the tour you will encounter potbellied pigs and Nile crocodiles. Wander around the farm to see our squirrel monkeys and birds in all colors imaginable. If you want to experience something out of the ordinary during your holiday, look no further! The Curacao Ostrich Farm is great fun for both kids and adults
At the end of the tour you can feed the ostriches and you are even invited to stand on a real ostrich egg!
You will find that the egg can easily hold a person’s weight. And if this makes you feel a bit hungry, don’t hesitate to order an ostrich omelet or ostrich steak at the Zambezi restaurant.
Experience the best of Curacao’s coast on a 4-hour tugboat, reef and history tour, and slip into the water at two of the island’s snorkeling sites. See schools of bright reef fish drift through a sunken tugboat that’s grown-over with coral formations, Christmas tree worms and seagrass, and watch for the moray eels and sea turtles that thrive on the island’s sheltered coast. Visit a second snorkeling site to swim above another thriving reef, then explore a centuries-old fort built to protect the coast from pirate raids.

Zip around St. Joris Bay, climb along the coastal cliffs and Playa Kanoa Beach, and hop off to tour an aloe vera plantation, visit an ostrich farm, and explore a little-visited mountain cave.
At the 21st Nov we arrived whith our cruiseship in Curaçao.
We booked the TukTuk via Viator a few weeks before. Got exact directions where to meet our guide... So we got there by time and he was already waiting for us. Sorryly I don't remember his name.
He gave us two options for the tour. One was to drive thru downtown and the other was a smaller ride thru downtown, drive up on the hill to a beautiful look over Curaçao and to the Destillery.
We decided for the second tour.
He showed us lovely houses and spots and explained us everything very good. Also he answered eny questions and stopped for pictures! After a short drive we got to the Destillery where we had time to visit the museum and shop a little bit.
I just can recommend this tour to everybody that wants to see and learn something from Curaçao. We had a lot of fun and our guide was lovely!
My husband and I did an hour scenic tour of Curacao. Our guide Ryan was great. He was entertaining and knew the history of the island. He explained everything and was able to answer any questions that we had.
Phillip was a great tour guide. He took us safely around the city and showed us the many historical homes. He pointed out which had been restored by the Restoration Society and the city. Because I got some bad information, he had to wait for us to arrive at the correct pick up point. Just a note, WHILE THE PICK-UP SITE IS WITHIN WALKING DISTANCE OF THE PORT, IT IS ABOUT 3/4THS OF A MILE. I suggest booking through the cruise line if you have difficulty walking that far. They will pick you up at a closer point.
