Countless great up-close encounters with marine life for
families await at the Curaçao Sea Aquarium – dolphins,
stingrays, sea turtles, and on my visit there with my
daughter, we even hand-fed sharks. And it’s very
educational, too. But the option to dive 1,000 feet below
to see colourful coral and sea creatures up close without
even getting wet is an once-in-a-lifetime adventure.
Children 10 years and older can join their family in the unique
mini-submarine called Curasub at Substation Curaçao.
Another unique underwater adventure you’ll find on Curaçao
is Aquafari. Bizarre-looking scooter-type vehicles are
outfitted with air-supplied helmets, so you can ride around
below the waves while simply breathing normally; it’s
surreal. The minimum age for Aquafari is 10 years.
