What is the Lionfish Scuba Dive Experience?

The Lionfish Scuba Dive Experience is more than just a dive—it’s a mission. This guided dive takes participants on an adventure to hunt the invasive lionfish, a species that poses a significant threat to the reefs of Curaçao. You will be trained to safely catch these predators, helping to protect the local marine ecosystem.

Why Hunt Lionfish?

Lionfish are an invasive species in the Caribbean, including Curaçao. They have a voracious appetite and no natural predators, leading to a dramatic decrease in native fish populations. According to the Reef Environmental Education Foundation, a single lionfish can eat 460,000 fish per acre per year. By participating in the Lionfish Scuba Dive Experience, you contribute to controlling this invasive species, thereby supporting the health of the coral reefs.
