A Must if your ever in Curacao! Either a boat dive from the Holiday Beach getting a ride for a shore entry. Nice Barracuda! On a multi-level dive my dive buddy Ryan and I saw a barracuda that was easily 4-6 ft (conservative est.), in the cargo-hold. Beautiful! The dusk night dive was the most challenging. Surf is relentless on a windy day, until you clear the coral (wear boots) or it will be a short dive. With BC full, drift for about five min S.S.East of the dive buoy. It was attached to the bow before it was seen floating in front of the Holiday Beach following a real strong storm in Apr-May '03. Ask Anton at the Hol-Beach Dive Center, he knows. We thought we had a NEW shore dive from the Hotel. At the port side use the current, it can carry you up the wheel-house to the forward cargo hold and then down. Once in the hold your at 100-110 ft, watch your DT and allow about 8-10 min at depth average. Watch your head at the cargo hatch slats, the cause of her going down in '77. Then do a drift dive back to the Holiday Beach, allowing about 100-150 psi to get back. Head NNW until you're along the reef, then W and you might see the sea turtles during the day. We didn't have a compass on the night dive. Weird! If your unsure of the area, get a guide from the Dive Center.
