Visit the North West coast of Curacao, where the strong wind off the water creates phenomena like a natural fountain and a jacuzzi. During this 4-hour tour with a local guide, explore Shete Boka Natural Park, where the 'Breath of Curacao' creates powerful waves breaking on the coast as well as the Boka Tabla cave and the Boka Pistol, a natural water cannon. Ride through the park on an open-top 4x4 vehicle, optimal for taking photos, and enjoy round-trip transportation from most local hotels and the cruise port.

Dear Cor, We are very happy that you enjoyed the tour and had a great time Thank you for the nice review and hope to see you soon again
Beautiful nature tour with an excellent guide!
, Feb 2022
This was a small tour (one other couple and our guide), which allowed us a lot of interaction with our knowledgeable guide, Ariel. He showed us numerous plants and animals, often stopping so that we could get a closer look. He also talked with us about various geological formations in the area. He took us to the Boka Tabla Cave, where we saw a couple of bats! He also took us to see and listen to the Book Pistol - where the water shoots up into the air as it funnels into the rocks. (See photo). The ride in the back of a covered open air vehicle allowed the wind to keep us cool and comfortable. Ariel is an outstanding guide who shared lots of information in an interesting and sometimes humorous way.

Curaçao leaves you with a smile
, Aug 2021
Our tour guy was Elmer which ironically we found out he studied in NY. (Where my significant and I are from) Upon meeting us at the hotel, he was so welcoming and nice. The tour of curaçao was so knowledgeable and fun. We enjoyed it and recommend you ask for Elmer.

It’s a great tour and our driver was great. Desert 🌵 caves and blow spout and the pistol were terrific. Bumpy ride but not bad
Good tour
, Mar 2020
The tour guide did a terrific job of showing interesting areas of the island. The ride was a little bumpy but I knew that. My only regret was the tour ended up being 4.5 hours. A little too long. Also, better information on the meeting place would have helped as well.

Curacao Highlights!

Excellent tour! Our ship was late in arriving but the tour was adjusted so we could still see all the highlights!

Long was the best!!

The tour was great!! We saw a lot of the island in one day. Long was very accommodating and helpful. He ensured we were safe at all times including during snorkeling with the turtles. He went beyond any tour guide I have had before or after. Thanks Long!!
Great way to see the outskirts of Curacao
, Jan 2020
A fantastic way to see the northwest part of Curacao and everything west of Willemstad. Alan is a very knowledgeable and well-traveled tour guide who provided great insight to the history and culture of Curacao and the surrounding Caribbean islands. I am super happy I booked this excursion to get outside of the port and into a natural part/national park here. We had a full group of 8 guests but felt very much like a personal tour. I understand the slightly negative reviews of this being an open jeep tour, but I enjoyed it very much. A slight rain shower during hour 1 was no big deal, and the continuous bumpiness while off-roading atleast half of the tour was as expected. Should be noted, this 4 hour tour ended up with a bonus 90 minutes making this a 5 1/2 hour excursion. Nobody seemed to mind as no one had another tour in the early afternoon. There were no breaks for atleast the first 2 hours while traveling outside of the town, into the rural part where the caves are before finally getting to the national park. My highlight was Boka Pistol, an ocean water spectacle. The last stops were a great location to see a bunch of flamingos, and a view over Salina Sint Marie next to Sint Willibrordus. Alan did a fantastic job giving everyone an opportunity to see the most during their visit on any given day. This would have been a fine time to ask to be dropped off at Blue Bay Beach to spend the afternoon there since it was on the way back and the ship didn't depart until 1130pm, then take a taxi back to port, but I reluctantly didn't do so. A great tour to see the island the 1st time here, highly recommended.

Dear Illiniruss, Thank you so much for your review. We are so glad that you enjoyed the tour and yes the bumpiness can not be avoided as some of the most beautiful spots on the island are only accesible by going off road. We hope you will return as Curacao has many more to offer With kind regards Curacao Actief
Boring and uncomfortable

Super uncomfortable seats and not many chances to get out of the truck. Not very interesting and was not offered water until the trip was almost over
Everything you would need to know!
, Dec 2019
At first we wondered why we weren't in an open air jeep. But Elmer explained why and now we know why you trust the locals! It was so much nicer in the jeep he had as it would have been so much hotter in an open air jeep. Elmer took us to all the great places, allowed us time to see everything and was super knowledgable! Breath of Curacao was the highlight for sure!

Dear Jserv, I am so glad that you enjoyed your tour with Elmer and thank you so much for your review. We hope you will visit Curacao again as there are still many hidden treasures to discover on! With kind regards Curacao Actief

Awesome tour

Allen made this tour extra special. We saw so many wonderful places on the island and in addition, his knowledge of the history and other aspects of the island made for a great experience.
Wonderful Tour Guide and Great Tour of Curacao!
, Jan 2019
We loved our Jeep Tour of Curacao! Alan was a great tour guide who was very knowledgeable of all of the different places he took us as well as the general history of the island. I'd absolutely recommend this tour for anyone who is looking to explore other areas of the island that might not be seen otherwise or without a car. Wonderful to do the half day experience but we also found out once arriving that we could have done a full day one as well (to keep in mind if that's of interest).

Alex was a wonderful guide. He went above and beyond to make sure that we saw the best of Curacao. This was our favorite stop of our 8 day cruise and it was because of Alex. He truly loves his Country and was very proud to show us everything. Can't wait to visit Curacao again.

Was a memorable experience. Guide was very knowledgeable, and we really enjoyed the trip. It was really the only way we could have seen these sights without a 4wd vehicle of our own.

Enjoyed our tour with Elmer as our guide. Loved the drive through the mini desert of Curacao. We were educated on the use of Curacao for bombing training in WWII which was very interesting.The description for this tour mentioned a couple of sites that we would visit which we didn't: Suplado, the natural jacuzzi, the Boka Tabla cave. A bit disappointed that we didn't see these.

This tour was great and so were the two guides, Gitland goes by George and Howard. Howard is a jokester and George the straight man and they played off of one another to give us a few laughs. We had two vehicles and they were equipped with a loud speaker so the guide/driver could point out various things to us. Warning--the tour takes some extremely rough dirt roads and the ride is kind of wild. However, you get to see things that are not available from the paved roads. We spotted a beautiful wild parrot among other creatures. We really enjoyed this tour.
