Traveler Tips

Maybe they can charge a bit more money and offer simple snacks so people can last a lot longer.
The water was fairly shallow for quite a distance out, so it made it easier to swim away from others and feel like you were in your own private pool.
You will also have time to relax and swim at a stunning beach!

You WILL regret it if you miss this!
Angela_T, Sep 2023
Sexy Eddie and Patrick were knowledgeable and amazing. Learning so much about the history of Curacao was cool. The beaches were beautiful and the swimming with turtles was surreal. The pictures don't even look real. It was hands down a wonderful day.
Book this excursion! You won’t regret it
Kendall_S, Sep 2023
This was the most amazing excursion! Patrick and Sexy Eddie have the day planned out so well and were also so informative and pleasant. Patrick took incredible photos of all of us in the water with his GoPro and then airdropped them all to us on the bus ride back. It was a nice touch. Grote Knip beach is the most beautiful beach I have ever seen in my life.
Need to announce water is deep and if not a good swimmer need a life jacket.

Best excursion ever! Made our trip. You will not be disappointed if you book this excursion. Most beautiful water I have ever seen.

Luke_H, Sep 2023
Very knowledgeable about the island history, great that we were picked up and the photos were amazing! So many turtles and great food at the last beach stop!
Great day swimming with the turtles

Our guides Patrick and "Sexy" Eddie were very knowledgeable about Curacao and it's history and went out of their way to show us sites of historical significance beyond the scheduled stops on the tour. At the turtle beach Patrick accompanied us in the water and made sure we all had interactions with the turtle. He took over 200 pictures and shared them digitally with everyone on the tour at no extra charge. After we swam with the turtles, they took us to the beautiful Grote Knip Beach where we stayed for an hour and swam in the crystal clear, blue water. We had a great day and would highly recommend this tour. You must ask for Patrick and Eddie! P.S. don't forget dollar bills to use the bathrooms at the beaches.
Beat value amazing day

What an amazing time. Thank you Sexy Eddie and Patrick for a day filled with fun, Sun, and education as we learned so much of the history in Curaçao. This was the highlight of our vacation!
Incredible excursion
Emma_K, Aug 2023
This excursion was so worth it! We swam and snorkeled with sea turtles and fish and got the photos sent to us for free! The second beach was the bluest water ever and we got to swim and saw wild pigs! We also stopped to see flamingos. The bus ride was full of Curacao history information. Patrick and Eddy—the guides were amazing and so friendly! The best. Definitely recommend.

Patrick and Sexy Eddie were informative, professional and fun. They told us a lot about the history of the island and the sea turtle experience was amazing. Cherry on too was the Grote Knip beach stop. Some of the clearest, blue water I’ve ever experienced. All in all, a great day and tons of fun. Great sense of humour from our tour guides. Thanks for everything. I would definitely recommend this excursion if you’re staying in Curaçao.

Worth the trip!
Joan_G, Jul 2023
Our tour guides, Patrick and Eddie were fantastic. They were so knowledgeable about the history of the islands and provided many interesting details. Patrick was the sea turtle whisperer. He knew exactly how to get the sea turtles all around us and he freely gave all his photographs to the guests. I would highly recommend this excursion to both individuals and families.
