Discover the Wonders of Caracas Bay

A Historical and Natural Treasure

Caracas Bay Peninsula, located on the southeastern side of Willemstad, is a fascinating destination with a rich history. Originally used as a bunker bay by Royal Dutch Shell, it was transformed into a national park in 1985, boasting pristine beaches and incredible snorkeling sites. This tour offers an exclusive opportunity to explore this area, guided by professionals who ensure a safe and enriching experience.

Snorkeling at Tugboat Beach

Explore the Famous Tugboat Wreck

Our first stop is the renowned Tugboat Beach, home to the Curaçao tugboat wreck. This idyllic site has been submerged since the 1970s and is now a vibrant underwater habitat. The wreck is covered in corals and sponges, attracting a variety of marine life, including glassy sweepers and yellowtail snappers. Snorkelers can also spot Sergeant majors, often drawn by other snorkelers feeding the fish.

Dive Under “The Cathedral”

When the area is free of ships, we’ll swim under the pier, affectionately known as “The Cathedral.” This site is a visual feast with orange cup corals and other colorful marine organisms. It’s a must-see for anyone passionate about underwater photography and marine biodiversity.

Director’s Bay: A Scenic and Historic Stop

Marvel at Fortress Beekenburg

Our next destination is Director’s Bay, an enchanting spot with a fascinating backstory. Here, you’ll be awestruck by the view from Fortress Beekenburg, a historic fort dating back to 1703. The bay also offers a glimpse into Curaçao’s past with the Quarantine building and panoramic views over the Spanish Water.
