Kayak and Snorkeling Tour
Kayak and Snorkeling Tour
Join us on a glorious Kayak and Snorkeling Tour. Discover the beauty of Curacao as you paddle along the amazing coastline to see its natural wonders and historical locations.
After a safety briefing, climb aboard your kayak and follow your professional guide to remote areas where you will marvel at the tropical vegetation and wildlife. You will paddle across Caracas Bay (approximately 20 minutes open water). Here, you will see cultural highlights such as Fort Beekenburg as you paddle for approximately another 20 minutes in the protected waters along the coast. The Fort was originally built in 1703 to ward off the French and British fleets. It was named after Heer van Beek, who from 1701 to 1704 coordinated the city of Willemstad's defense.
You will land at a deserted stretch of beach, a combination of sand and coral stones, which will allow you access to some of the best snorkeling on the island, not only for the natural beauty underwater, but also for the lack of crowds above. Before heading back, cool off with a refreshing swim in the pristine tropical waters. Above the beach you can see a manor estate, the Quarantaine Hospital, which was built in 1700 and used for treatment of sick seaman. The paddle back is approximately 30 minutes across the Bay.

The tour guide found us and held the bus because he realized we were not onboard. As a family of four, I was nervous about the kayaking part of our trip. I have seen people tip over. The area was slippery and our youngest son stubbed his toe. He was given antiseptic & bandaids. Wear proper shoes that will keep this from happening to you. Next, we were all fitted with life jackets. A tour guide was in a separate kayak the entire time watching us and providing tips. When we decided to go back due to muscle fatigue, they respected our wishes and drove us to the snorkel area. We had a longer time to snorkel too since our oldest son wanted to kayak back. The tour guide went with him and we were driven back to the starting point. Now that’s service! Because of their dedication, what could have been a tour that “sucked,” turned into a really good tour. TIPS: Realize it takes upper body strength to kayak and the strongest person should be in the rear.

We had mixed feeling about this one. The Kayaking was a little more demanding than we had expected but the guides were very good and quite likeable people. The snorkeling was wonderful but we hadn't counted on the physical exertion that the Kayaking would demand on us!! I really liked the staff but next time, I'll just look for a snorkeling experience alone! Memorable adventure non the less and looking back, I'm glad that we did it!!

We had a real experience on the ocean. Camillo was a wonderful guide. Very knowledgeable and friendly. The whole experience was great. I would recommend it to adventure lovers.

After being at sea for three days I thought we could use a little exercise. This was a fun tour. After getting everyone in the kayaks and out of the bay we hit the open water. The wind was blowing and made for a wet ride in the big waves. The snorkling part of the tour was just ok. They are trying to bring back the coral reef..... so the amount of fish and the variety of fish was a bit disappointing. Overall an enjoyable time.

We really enjoyed the whole tour. The day was perfect for the tour. The guide was fun and well informed about,the area. The only problem we had was with the arrangements for our transportation. Very poor arrangements
