We booked this last minute but I was so glad we did. We took about a half hour drive from the ship to pick up another small boat on the island. From there it took us on a short ride where we went to a sunken tug boat. It was so clear and fish everywhere. The instructors were really nice as well. My husband is not a big fan of the water so he stayed on the boat while I snorkeled. After getting back on the boat we had rum punch and a slice of watermelon. They also served a hot pocket looking thing that was either filled with cheese or beef they were deep fried so really good!

The scenery in Curacao is like no other we loved all the pastel buildings and things to see. The moving bridge kind of freaked me out it swings from side to side for ships to pass through. However if you get stuck on one side then there is a ferry that is free that will take you back.

Once again rented a car and drove up to hit all of the beaches that we could along the SW coast. Grote knip and Playa Jeremi were among our favorites. Spent a few dollars to go to private beach at south end and had some great snorkeling and very nice beach. Curacao had the most beautiful blue water out of any place we have visited yet. Pictures don't do it justice!!

Waaaay too long a bus ride to get to the place where the excursion boat was docked. Only in the water an hour but rode the bus 2 plus hours,

The air conditioned bus that took us over was roomy enough for our group that we got to spread out comfortably. Once at the snorkel site, there was a beautiful beach you could sit at to apply sunblock, then there was a rocky entrance into the water for about 10 feet so it was a very cautious walk until you could swim without worry of tripping. We got to snorkel out about 200 feet along the rocky coast to the sunken tugboat where we got to see a guide cause a feeding frenzy with the nearby fish. There was a lot of fun to be had when hundreds of fish would just swim past you like you were just another type of fish they had seen before, no worry of being eaten for dinner.
