Next time you’re thinking of a dive trip to the southern Caribbean, be sure to check out Ocean Encounters at the LionsDive Beach resort in beautiful Curacao.
They offer sleep and dive packages with five different hotels.
Ocean Encounters operates four different boats with 40-60 divers joining them every day for morning or afternoon two-tank dives only 5-15 minutes away from the resort itself.
One of the highlights are their signature Lionfish Scuba Dive Experience (LSD) dives, which consist of is a drift dive culling lionfish, which helps control this invasive species, thus helping protect the environment and feeding the bellies of the participants with a post-dive fresh lionfish sashimi.
At night before you head to one your favorite restaurants in the resort, or their grill on the beach, you can join Ocean Encounters for a Fluorescent Night Dive.
Depending on the time of the year the pricing at Lionsdive Beach Resort varies from US$693 (~627 Euros) to $2,306 (2087 Euros) for the non-diver, or $1,179 (~1067 Euros) to $2,306 (~2087 Euros) for the diver.
