Traveler Tips


  • "Maybe they can charge a bit more money and offer simple snacks so people can last a lot longer." See review
  • "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." See review
  • "You will also have time to relax and swim at a stunning beach!" See review

Best last minute decision ever made

Booked this on a whim at 1am the night before and it ended up being hands down the best experience I had on the trip. The locations were amazing, it was well run, and Patrick is not only a fantastic and hilarious tour guide but also an awesome underwater photographer. These are the coolest pictures ever taken of me and an amazing memory to boot. The turtles swim right up to you and there are so many, it’s truly an incredible sight to see. 10/10 would recommend.

The tour ride was good. The Flamingo photo stop was a added treat. The Beach experience was very nice but I had issues with the Turtle Experience. Just make sure everyone gets a chance to have photos taken. I only found one partially Goodson of me. My daughters had some nice ones and at least that was good. Everyone no matter their Ethnicity or Status should get the same consideration.

That you missed that certain something about the tour, we deeply regret. But as has already been clearly communicated several times, the tortoises are in the foreground and Patrick makes mainly pictures of the tortoises. If then still guests are in the picture, that is an extra bonus. That we are now accused of racism, is really without words. We live on an island with 55 different nations and 92 different religions and are immigrants ourselves, with us every person comes first. It's a pity that you see it differently and make out pictures that we also give away free of charge to every guest.

Literally breathtaking!!

This was one of the most amazing experiences of all my travels. I could not believe that I was face to face with a huge sea turtle and it actually came up and nose bumped me. It was AWESOME!!!! I totally recommend this experience. Don’t be deterred if you cannot swim, you can still enjoy the turtles. I felt safe throughout the adventure. All the safety equipment is provided. You will not regret it. This is a one in a lifetime opportunity. Definitely do it!!

We visited Kenepa Beach for an hour then swam with the turtles for a full hour. In my opinion, an hour was enough time for the turtles—you should NOT do any tours that spend less time with them.

We had a great experience...

We had a great experience but there were some takeaways that come to mind when I think of our experience. The driver was very informative about the island with a lot of interesting facts. The guide Patrick was fun and enthusiastic about his job! One thing we weren’t too happy with was we got no pictures of either of us with turtles while we were out there and Patrick swam off without making sure the group was relatively together. The pictures were clear and well taken but he could have done a better job capturing all of us. The group didn’t stay together at all, it was a little disappointing

Thank you for your review, we take note of the criticism and will try to do better in the future. However, we would like to point out that the images are a gift and we provide them free of charge. Our focus is on the turtles and therefore pictures with the turtles. In the water it is difficult to recognize who belongs to our group. Sometimes it helps to give Patrick a sign, we can only appeal again and again to the togetherness.

Swimming with turtles was high on my list of things to do in curaçao and this tour was exactly what we needed. A stop at Grote Knip was also a must see! Fantastic guides and just the perfect amount of time at each stop! Highly recommend this excursion!

The turtles are so amazing! We all tried to give the turtles the respect they need and swim around them only, no touching! But our guides were also so friendly and helpful with everything! Pickup was on time and drop off went smoothly. Eddie had so much to tell about Curaçao 🇨🇼

This was a great excursion. The company communicated with me before hand so I knew what to expect and when they would pick me up. The bus thankfully had AC and cold drinks. They gave us curacao history as we drove. I enjoyed the beautiful beach but swimming with the turtles was amazing

A MUST IN CURACAO!

Patrick and Eddie made this experience ONE OF A KIND. The sights — sea turtles, flamingos, grote knip, etc. are undoubtedly an experience you can’t beat but having Patrick and Eddie drive us around in a WWII medic jeep educate us about the island, the culture and more, and just being overall the best hosts was something you can’t just get anywhere. You don’t want to skip this excursion!!!!!! So worth it.
