Curaçao turns Dive Mecca in May

Divers flock to discover the healthiest marine life in the Caribbean


            Curaçao, Netherland Antilles, March 19, 2008 - Divers from all over the world are heading to the 2008 Curacao Dive Festival (May 24 - 31) to experience what Scuba Diving Magazine voted "Healthiest Marine Environment in the Caribbean/Atlantic."  During the weeklong celebration of all things aquatic, voyagers to the Mecca of Dive will explore sunken tugboats and the alien seascape of Curaçao's Mushroom Forrest.  Divers will learn the tricks of underwater photography and get to swap stories with others who have discovered the thrill and beauty of life beneath the waves.

            Known for waters as clear and blue as the liquor that bears its name, the Caribbean island Curaçao is the "all-you-can-eat buffet" of the diving world.  More than 60 unique dive locations offer divers of all levels the ultimate underwater experience.

            "When you dive on Curaçao you have excellent shore access to the coral walls," said Jerry Beaty, associate publisher of Dive Training and Dive Center magazines.  "And it's just outside the Hurricane Belt, so it provides the opportunity for year-round tourism and diving."

            Along with daily dives and nightly celebrations, the 2008 Dive Festival offers a diverse set of workshops, featuring topics such as: art ("Environmental and Marine Art Painting" with renowned painter Ron G. Steven), safety ("Diver First Aid Tips that could save your Dive Vacation" with diver medic Joel Dovenbarger), and ecology ("Coral Spawning in Curaçao" with a local expert).

            Some of the great diving locations in the world can only found along the shores of Curaçao:

·         The Tugboat at Baya - a boat wreck easily reachable from the shore

·         The Crash Site - a small airplane that fell off the USS Eerie after it was bombed by a German torpedo

·         Rif Sint Marie - a lively spot for sea turtles, puffer fish and larger deep sea fish
