    The 2020 Curacao International Dive Festival, scheduled from September 27th to October 3rd, will be again an unprecedented collaboration for sustainable tourism, ocean conservation and a union of the Curacao tourism stakeholders.  Because of the dedicated industry sponsors and the revenue generated through the festival registrations, the proceeds of this annual dive festival will go directly to support valuable local sustainable tourism and ocean conservation initiatives.

    Curacao is clearly distinguishing their destination from other Caribbean and worldwide destinations, to focus on history, culture, language, food and music, but especially to promote the fact that we as a community are active with initiatives for marine conservation and sustainable tourism.

    Tune in and listen to SCUBA RADIO as we will be shining a spotlight on Curaçao during the November 9th and 16th editions of Greg Holt’s podcasts plus during the opening ceremonies of DEMA 2019, Greg will be announcing the winners of these fabulous Dive Vacation Packages on Thursday, Friday and Saturday morning between 9:45-10:00am.

  • Project AWARE Adopt A Dive Site Initiative
    The Curaçao Dive Task Force takes its sustainable tourism responsibilities very seriously with a commitment to Project AWARE’s ‘Adopt A Dive Site’ Initiative....

  • With some of the most biodiverse reefs in the whole of the Caribbean Sea and a cultural heritage to match, the CHATA Dive Task Force takes its responsibilities very seriously with a fun and passionate approach for the DEMA Show, especially towards Curacao’s conservation efforts.  Chief amongst the programs is the island’s commitment to Project AWARE’s ‘Adopt A Dive Site’ Initiative.  This commitment to sustainable tourism and ocean conservation was even further underlined during the 2019 Curaçao International Dive Festival, reaffirming the industry’s sustainability commitment to the island of Curacao so that future generations may benefit.

    “This public and private sector synergy is producing results – bringing and implementing improvements such as effectively placed mooring buoys, increased focus and support for coral restoration, and underwater clean-ups.

    Additionally, this strategy stresses several key components for Curacao to clearly distinguish our destination from other Caribbean and worldwide destinations, to focus on history, culture, language, food and music, but especially to promote the fact that we as a community are active with initiatives for marine conservation and sustainable tourism.  Together, we are making a difference for Curaçao in an environmentally sustainable manner and placing Curaçao in the spotlight like it has never been done before”, says Bryan Horne, Dive Curaçao

  • Coral Restoration Foundation Curaçao
    Since the launch in 2015, the Coral Restoration Foundation Curaçao (CRF Curaçao) has successfully now out-planted over 6,000 corals at 7 popular dive sites along Curaçao’s southeastern coastline....

  • The Coral Restoration Foundation Curaçao has “branched out” and expanded the nurseries at the Ocean Encounters house reef located at LionsDive Beach Resort Curaçao, added a nursery at the Avila Beach Hotel and enlisted Atlantis Diving Curaçao and Scubaçao as a new CRF Curaçao affiliate members. By doing so, the Foundation’s Board is confident that they can provide triple the number of coral fragments available to be out planted back onto Curaçao’s fringing reefs.

    CRF Curaçao is dedicated to their mission statement which is “to bring back the shallow-water populations of staghorn and elkhorn corals in Curaçao, which would not only help mitigate the possible effects of climate change but also rejuvenate reef fisheries and biodiversity, as well as help the scuba diving tourism sector.”

    “The significance of this Curaçao Coral Reef Restoration Program is that together as a community here on Curaçao, we are restoring our shallow water reef system while educating our youth about the importance of protecting and preserving our natural ecosystem,” according to Pol Bosch, CRF Curacao, who adds: “I believe programs like this help solidify a natural sustainability for future generations.”
