For more than a quarter of a century, Atlantis Diving in Willemstad has been one of the best known diving schools in Curaçao. Located right on the ocean with a beautiful resident reef, Atlantis offers the perfect setting for PADI courses at all levels. The school also offers all the equipment from masks and fins to a dive computer. For a brief introduction to scuba diving book the half-day introduction course, which costs about 70 US dollars and includes a test dive. There are also a number of other affordable packages: how about a course combined with a stay in an apartment (with ocean view) right next to the diving school.
