Tour Details

Join us on a glorious Kayak and Snorkeling Tour. Discover the beauty of Curacao as you paddle along the amazing coastline to see its natural wonders and historical locations.

Kayaking is done in the Caracasbay, a large cove that used the be a port for Mega oil tankers. You can still see the remains of old piers where sometimes big ship are parked for crew change. As this area was closed for years to the public the underwater world is still amazing for snorkeling. After a safety briefing, climb aboard your kayak and follow your professional guide on the crystal clear sea with all its different shades of blue. We kayak along the shore where you will pass several beaches. The first 20 minutes can be strenuous due to the wind, once we are across the bay we are protected from the wind by the hills, if necessary there is a guide to assist with a jetski. You will paddle across Caracas Bay (approximately 20 minutes open water). Here, you will see cultural highlights such as Fort Beekenburg. The Fort was originally built in 1703 to ward off the French and British fleets. It was named after Heer van Beek, who from 1701 to 1704 coordinated the city of Willemstad's defense.

Next we peddle to directors bay. You will land at a stretch of beach with some dive shacks. The beach is a combination of sand and coral stones, which will allow you access to some of the best snorkeling on the island. Before heading back, cool off with a refreshing swim in the pristine tropical waters and have a drink. Above the beach you can see a manor estate, the Quarantaine Hospital, which was built in 1700 and used for treatment of sick seaman. The paddle back is approximately 30 minutes across the Bay. Sequence of the tour and beach departure can vary depending wind conditions.
