Experience the best of Curacao’s coast on a 4-hour tugboat, reef and history tour, and slip into the water at two of the island’s snorkeling sites. See schools of bright reef fish drift through a sunken tugboat that’s grown-over with coral formations, Christmas tree worms and seagrass, and watch for the moray eels and sea turtles that thrive on the island’s sheltered coast. Visit a second snorkeling site to swim above another thriving reef, then explore a centuries-old fort built to protect the coast from pirate raids.
  • 4-hour snorkeling tour including visit to historic fort in Curacao
  • Snorkel at another excellent spot teeming with coral and brightly colored fish
  • Stop by blufftop Fort Beekenburg and admire great views
  • A snack, drinks, snorkeling gear and round-trip transport from most Curacao hotels included

Very disappointing
, May 2022
Car came to late All the equipment was still not there First snorkling site was very uninteresting The car went away, with a lot of stress, with all our belongings. So we had no shoes to walk to the other snorkling site. There was very les explanations about the under water world There were no drinks which were promised. We had to pay these ourselves. We had to wait for the bus in the sin. No staff, no towels, no suncreen. The tour only took less then 3 hours. We had paid for 4 I am very disappointed. We paid a lot of money. It was not worth it. Sorry.

Larry was our tour guide and right from the start he made us feel comfortable and had us laughing! What a wonderful tour from the tugboat to the fort to the reef it was absolutely perfect!

Small group size gave us the feel of a private tour and Bernice our guide was a pure pleasure! Her fun facts about the island and her humor made the drive so much fun. While the sunken tugboat was nice the first stop was simply an amazing hidden treasure. We could have stayed for hours more! Recommend this tour 100%!

I had a great time. Even though I was the only person booked Curacao Actief didn't cancel. My guide was Serlon and he was excellent. Helpful and knowledgeable. The snorkeling was a lot fun and the island tour was very interesting. my second time with Curacao Actief - both times were excellent (first time was with Bernice). I highly recommend this tour and Curacao Actief - great customer service and great people working for them.

We had a wonderful time snorkeling with Bernice. We were the only two snorkelers on this tour, which made things extra special. She picked us up at our rental place, and took us to two nice snorkeling spots. Tugboat was pretty awesome. AShe also took us by car to several sightseeing spots. She was very funny, informative, and knowledgeable about her island, its history, and marine life, We enjoyed her company (pun intended) very much.
Best Snorkel Tour ever with our Tour Guide. He made it extra special.

Wonderful and personable guide Howard took us on a trip not to be forgotten. Two separate snorkelling locations: both areas filled with fish plenty to see. We even stopped at Fort Beekenburg for a tour before heading back to our resort. Howard had all the time in the world for us and made it a most fun filled day. Highly recommended

Bernice was the best, she took amazing photos with our camera. She saw things under the water and quickly pointed them out. This was the best tour of our entire cruise.
