The East Point
The east point area of curacao covers about 13 % of the island. It’s privately owned and inaccessible over land.
As it is situated east our prevailing eastern trade winds bring clear nutrient rich water to help create a unique coral reef that offers a home to a great variety of marine species. The boat ride to the tip of East point is about 40 minutes in our fast rib. For the surface interval we use the sheltered lagoon named Awa di Oostpunt, a place worth visiting on its own.
The best time of year to dive these unique sites is between May and December. The best time for manta rays is around the coral spawning months of September and October. For the 2 tank east point boat dive trip we require minimum certification of open water or equivalent and recent dive experience. For this trip we start out of the fishing harbor at Caracasbaai at 09.00.
Large schools of fish, a variety of sharks, rays, turtles and the healthiest coral reef you can find in the Caribbean.
