Explore Curacao's spectacular coral reefs on the Seaworld Explorer, a state-of-the-art semi-submarine. Enjoy this unique, narrated excursion as a diverhand-feeds a multitude of fish right in front of your own viewing window. Seaworld Explorer is developed in Australia for use on the Great Barrier Reef. The vessel does not submerge; you descend into the hull of this cruising underwater observatory and sit in air-conditioned comfort five feet below the surface of the water, exploring sea life through large, clear glass windows.
Your tour begins at the dock in Willemstad from where you are driven three miles by coach to the Dive Site to board the Seaworld Explorer. From there you embark on a narrated tour of the coral reefs along the south side of the island. Just offshore, from your underwater viewpoint, you can clearly observe a wall dropping sharply to depths of several hundred feet. You will see dozens of tropical fish such as yellowtail snapper, sergeant majors, parrotfish, and queen angelfish, as well as delicate colonies of coral that were thousands of years in the making. Then watch in awe as a diver is surrounded by hungry fish hand-fed right in front of your window. A knowledgeable marine expert will provide you with information on the amazing underwater world around and will be happy to answer questions.
