Great experience! Should be 6 stars!
Sep 2020 • Couples
What a great experience! I can wholeheartedly recommend Duikcentrum Van de Ven for any diving experience. My wife and I started of 1 dive with Gerard and my wife wasn’t totally at ease, but thanks to Gerard she eventually loved it. And..... We even completed the entire SSI Open Water Diver course with Gerard.

Thanks Gerard for being such a great instructor en Angelique for being such a wonderful hostess!

Felt like family!
Nov 2019
Me and my brother went to Curacao with the main purpose of getting our Diving certificate. Vd Ven gave us a fast and extensive answer via email on the best options. The first two days of our holiday we had our diving course. It was just the two of us with an instructor (and we were even lucky enough to have +1 guide on our very first dive to take pictures!). Great to get such personal service. Throughout the holiday, we kept on going back, to rent gear and for guided dives. Everytime the groups were small and personal. Really felt as if we were part of this lovely family! Thank you very much!

We finished our Referral Open Water Diver course here and it was an amazing experience. Gerard (our instructor) made sure we learn how to safely dive, while having a good time. He also took us to his favourite place to observe turtle, which was stunning. We totally recommend this school, because they have great equipment and service.

Excellent dive centre near Jan Thiel
I completed the SSI open water diver course with Angelique. The four dives were in the different locations so I got to see a great range of fish and coral (and we were lucky enough to spot a turtle).

Angelique explained all the exercises I needed to complete clearly and guided me will throughout the two days. She made sure I understood what was required and helped me get the most out of each dive. My wife, who already has her diving ticket, was able to join for one of the dives and could borrow snorkeling gear for free while I completed the other dives.

Van de Ven is a family run business which takes the time to ensure that the customer has a great experience. I wouldn't hesitate to book with them again if I come back to Curacao.
