Best of the West Beaches and Turtle Snorkel

Love culture? Love nature? No need to have to choose between the two thanks to this fun, educational and snorkeling tour on the largely undeveloped western side of the island.

During your journey you will stop at Shete Boka National Park to see the beautiful underground cave of Boka Tabla. Watch in amazement as large ocean waves burst though the cave opening then enjoy a light hike to Boka Ascension and observe wild sea turtles feeding in Ascension Bay. Take this opportunity to now jump in the water and experience snorkeling with wild sea turtles in their natural habitat at the famous Fishermans Beach at Westpoint.

You will also visit Knip Beach, a hidden treasure that is a favorite with the locals and provides some of the island's most beautiful ocean views. While here, enjoy a delicious picnic-style lunch followed by a refreshing swim or impromptu sun-tanning session.

Your tour will also take you to a historic plantation house, one of many centuries-old plantation homes still standing around the island. Discover what life on the plantation was like as well as the social and economic climate of that time before your return trip back to port.

This 6-hour tour is the perfect introduction to Curacao so book your tour today and don't miss out on this island gem.

The tour was excellent! The guide and driver were friendly and knowledgeable about the island. Our 1st stop took us into a cave that was carved out by the sea. Then we snorkeled with lot's of turtles and went to another beautiful beach where we could jump off cliffs if we really wanted to. The group was small and intimate. The cruise line tour groups were hearded into busses while our group fit in a comfortable van. Great people Great time!

Great Excursion!

I loved this excursion! Our group was less than 20. The 2 parks we visited were stunning! I loved Joyce our guide. She was kind, patient and provided so much information on Curacao that I never knew about. Swimming where the turtles were was neat, but it wasbusy there and not much space with people there snorkeling. It was a small beach with lots of coral! Bring water shoes! They provided snorkel gear and lunch. It was a beautiful tour I would do it again

Swimming with Turtles!
May 01, 2019
This was am excellent excursion. The highlight was snorkeling with turtles. There were several turtles and at one time there were seven! The excursion had four interesting and different stops with lunch included at a beautiful beach for swimming. The guide was excellent and most interesting. Also the group was on 14 which added to the enjoyment. I highly recommend this excursion.
