Coral restoration and diving
Where we are diving
Your chance to help our reefs recover! Unfortunately, we’ve all seen the impact to coral reefs from climate change and environmental impact. On this trip, we’re combining diving the great sites of Curacao with a chance to work with Ocean Encounters and Coral Restoration Foundation. You’ll get three days of two-tank boat dives, plus a Coral Restoration Diver specialty class, and four dives focused on coral restoration — including hands-on coral farming and transplanting. Join Trip Leader JoAnn Haack on this unique volun-tourism trip! We highly recommend completing the Perfect Buoyancy class before this trip.
Where we are staying
LionsDive Beach Resort is located on the shore of the National Curacao Underwater Park. The resort includes a 50-meter pool, four restaurants and bars, Beach Body Wellness Club and complimentary wifi. LionsDive has their own private beach with plenty of palm trees, lounge chairs, beach huts and sunshades. The private beach connects with the popular beach boulevard. The boulevard has many shops, bars, restaurants and entertainment to enjoy while we’re not diving. Willemstad is a short five-minute shuttle drive away and is on the Unesco World Heritage list. The original colonial architecture is charming and great for sightseeing.
