The small bay at Marie Pampun is the entrance to two kind of dives. The first one is a rather shallow one along the reef. The other one is a deep dive to the car pile. In an effort to create an artificial reef a number of car wrecks are dumped here. There is also a lot of construction material, a small boat and a large pontoon. The deepest wrecks are beyond 40 meters so watch your no-decompression dive limits.
The pier at Baya is the perfect place to end you dive at this dive site. All the supporting structures of the pier are covered with sponges and coral and there is always an abundance of fish here.
On the North shore of Curaçao there is a dive site called the Tunnel of Doom. It is a partially collapsed cave. This event created an entrance into the cave on the land side. From land easily accessible if you know where this dive site is, but that doesn't mean that it is easy to dive here. You need very calm sea conditions. This happens mainly during the hurricane season.
On October 26, 2008, we, a number of Trunkdivers, decided to try to reach the plane wreck of the Fokker Fairchild F27 at Playa Kalki. The wreck is located between Playa Kalki and Playa Gepi. You can see the red buoy from the beach at Playa Kalki but the wreck is normally out of reach from shore. Most of the time the current is Eastward which means that you swim against the current on your way back. So we decided to use rental underwater scooters.
The SS Mediator is an archaeological wreck in the harbour of Willemstad, Curacao, Netherlands Antilles. For information about this wreck check the Mediator section on this website. On Sundays there are often guided dives on this wreck by Stimana with help of Trunkdivers. As underwater photographer and one of the regular guides on this wreck I recently created an underwater video of the highlights of such a guided tour. It gives you a good impression of what to expect, although the real thing is always far better. Check out the video and when you are in Curaçao contact me for a guided dive.
