Kayak and snorkel adventure in Curacao
Follow your professional kayak guide along the coast of Curacao
Paddle across Caracas Bay on open water
View Fort Beekenburg and other attractions from the water
Make your way to Curacao's pier to meet your professional kayak guide for a safety briefing and basic paddling instruction. Climb into your double kayak and follow your guide from the pier out into the turquoise ocean and up along the coast of the island. Paddle across open water in beautiful Caracas Bay, then spend time boating through the coastline's protected waters. Pass landmarks like Ft Beekenberg, so named for Heer van Beek, who coordinated Willemstad's defense against the invading British fleets in 1703. Pull your kayak up on a deserted sand and coral-stone beach. Slip on the provided snorkel gear, including a mask, flippers and snorkel and dive in. Enjoy some of the best snorkeling on the island; the fact that these sites are difficult to reach means they are uncrowded and the plant and animal life is particularly vibrant. When you're finished exploring the underwater landscape, hop in your kayak for the paddle back to the pier.

This was a lot of fun. The guide was excellent and very knowledgeable about the area. I had never snorkeled before, he helped me with the gear and provided tips to make this a great experience. The fish were beautiful and paddling in the open water was not as difficult as expected. I would definitely recommend.
The kayaking part was good, but the beach they took us to for snorkeling was terrible. It was very rocky and hurt our feet, and no flippers were provided so you had to use a life jacket. The goggles had not been cleaned prior so they gave you soap to wash them out, which then the leftover residue went into your eyes and burned.
This was a great tour, however it was a bit of (fun) work!! The kayak ride to the snorkeling location was through open waters, but they do have incredibly attentive staff to help you out if you find the going too much. The snorkeling is great - loads of fish and underwater life to see!
