About Daaibooi Snorkeling and Scuba Diving

Daaibooi is a more rustic beach, with a longer kick-out. It is well worth exploring. Northwest of Willemstad, travel 7.3 km West on Weg Naar Westpunt from the Weg Naar Hato intersection. Turn left to head to St. Willibrordus and St. Marie. Travel 4.7 km to reach the intersection shown on the Saint Marie dive site. Follow the instructions from there.

It is a nice dive if you can handle the kick out to the reef. If you're interested in patch reef and sand flats as well as the reef proper, this is probably one of the better dives for that. There are a few fish species here that I haven't seen anywhere else in Curacao. Also a decent place for seeing Caribbean reef squid - on one outing here I ran into a school of thumb-sized babies, maybe 50 strong. Adorable! If you swim straight out it's pretty much sand flat and patch reef until the drop-off, but if you head off to the right somewhat you'll see some areas of very nice, shallow, flat reef as well. That seems to be a good spot for seeing the occasional turtle, and would be a really nice spot for a snorkel if it weren't so far from shore.
