News - Mushroom Forest TripsMarch 11, 2008
About 2 months ago we started Mushroom Forest dive trips and it is a great success!
We are now doing the Mushroom Forest every Wednesday. We leave by boat from the beach at the Marriott Hotel, a perfect location to relax after the dives.
The first part of this 1-tank morning boat dive goes to Mushroom Forest, one of the most famous dive sites of Curacao. This beautiful site consists of a long shallow plateau with mushroom-shaped coral formations ‘growing’ out of it.
The site is completed by the most exciting underwater animals swimming through and hiding in the mushrooms.
If time (air) is left, we also visit the Blue Room during the first dive. This cave, where the clear blue Curacao water plays with the always present sunshine resulting in a shimmering blue room, is spectacular.
There is also a possibility to do a second dive, a drift dive between Porto Mari and Cas Abao beach, called Rivendale (Harry Potter fans will know!). This untouched site, which you can only reach by boat, shows you all off Curacao’s underwater world you expected. Stingrays, turtles, maybe even dolphins and a lot, lot more can be seen during this dive.
