A few years ago my wife (Monique) and I (Johan) came to Curacao and equal in love with the island and of course the underwater life.
This has meant that we have launched on July 22 2010 Dive Center van de Ven.
We offer all types of PADI / SSI / IDD & HSA dive courses as well as several specialty programs.
All guided dives, introductory dives, and courses can be given in several languages including Dutch, English, and German.
With us YOU are central and you are not part of a mass production.
The individual attention for each client is important and the role of us is 'I simply want to be your buddy who is not in a hurry or has to watch his clock because the next group is coming'. We do not work with a fixed dive schedule, but we look forward to your planning.
We work with small groups diving during the introduction and the courses (max 4 people per instructor!).
Of Course, one-on-one is also possible during your dive.
Dive Center van de Ven is a Curaçao Tourist Board (CTB) approved diving school and also Chata Member and member of the Dive Task Force.
In 2015, 2016 and 2017 we received the certificate of excellence from TripAdvisor.
Because of we, as a diving center, make our dives exclusively with Mares diving equipment, we are the only Mares Dive Center on the island.
Dive Center van de Ven is certified and authorized to perform maintenance on all Mares Regulators.
Besides everything in diving we also offer additional services.
