Escape the masses on this small, Exclusive Wonderful World of Water Eco Jeep Tour, with a maximum of only eight people.
After climbing into the back of your open air Jeep vehicle (two benches of four facing each other) you will drive through the wide-open planes of Hato, a "mini desert" where you'll visit several isolated bays. You will see big breakers crash into the coral cliffs, and exotic birds like herons, frigatebirds, and Caracaras can be spotted.
Next, you will visit Shete Boca National Park, with its rugged and rocky formations. This is where you will enjoy a tasty picnic lunch. You may even get the chance to visit Boca Tabla, where the sea and wind has worked together to create a cave in which the waves come crashing in, often giving a splendid show.
Finally, you will journey to the southwest coast of Curacao to visit one of the many beautiful beaches for some snorkeling. Enjoy the colorful fish, sea turtles and beautiful coral formations, or lie still in the calm waters and gentle, warm waves. Snorkel, mask, fins and safety vest are included. Once you have finished snorkeling, you will be taken back to the cruise pier.

My husband and I and our 3 adult kids took this tour in early August while visiting the island on a cruise. Our guide was wonderful-very knowledgeable about the island, super accommodating and fun. He pointed out plants and wildlife, giving us a lot of information on them. We saw some highlights in the city, moved out to different areas of the island to see some of the natural wonders-Hato Caves, the "blow hole," several inlets,Shete Boca National Park where we saw Boca Tabla. After lunch, we went to a beautiful, uncrowded beach (Playa Piskado) for some of the best snorkeling we've ever done. The visibility was amazing, the water calm and almost effortless to swim in. After a stop to see Flamingos, we returned to the city and cruise port over the Queen Julianna bridge for a beautiful view.

A great tour to see the beautiful and sometimes rustic nature on the island... Our tour guide, Howard, was fabulous! He sure knows how to handle that jeep...even in deep water puddles created on ours path following days of heavy rain... Tour group was small( 7) and we stopped for a delicious picnic in an ocean front park. Would strongly recommend this tour to others..

We did the excursion with Elmer on Aug 25, 2016. He is extremely knowledgeable about the island and took us to a lot of interesting spots. We also visited 3 best beaches in Caracao, and was able to snorkeling in two of those. Excellent trip, Excellent guide, Excellent time. Would definitely do it again!!!

On 01/14/16 our day started with the candy-colored houses of the historical Willemstad, photo op from Queen Juliana Bridge, and the roaring sounds of airplane, next to the unpaved offroad. Our knowledgeable guide Elmer took us on a trip through the wide-open planes of Hato with its contemporary open air galery;the site with historical relation with WW II; the raw -beautiful spots of Shete Boka National Park (he carefully choose Boka Pistol to show the big breakers crash into the coral cliffs). In a warm, friendly manner he shared his pride of his homeland and paid close attention to our interests - during a brief stop at Landhuis Savonet he even sang a folk song (our regret is that we didn't have a chance to record this spontaneous performance). Elmer was polite and respectful. .

On 1/14 our guide Elmer welcomed us in a friendly manner - the day started with the colored houses of Willemstad, photo-ops from Queen Juliana Bridge. He shared his pride of Curacao, his knowledge, enthusiastically passed to us. Santa Anna Bay was replaced by unpaved road and airplane sounds. The trip took us through the planes of Hato and its ""art galery""; site related with the WW II; Shete Boka Park (Boka Pistol and its big breakers). He paid attention to our interests and tailored the tour according to them (a peak at Landhuis Ascencion; Landhuis Knip; Kunuku House; Landhuis Savonet - he even sang a folk song and our regret is that we didn't have a chance to record this spontaneous performance). We enjoyed the moments at a cove with sea turtles; the blue of Playa Lagun; snorkeled at a spot with incredible underwater life so close to the beach; watched pink flamingo. Elmer made everything personal and interesting (a recent news about the wild animal); he was polite and respectful.
