Prepare equipment
30-40 m (100-130 ft) dive
Briefing dive 1
The shake-down dive will be at Double Reef. Two healthy reefs separated by a 10 m (30 ft) sandy plateau. Ideal for adjusting equipment and getting familiar with the rich diversity of Curaçao's underwater world and with your fellow divers in the team. Good chance to meet a few turtles that made their habitat there.

13:30 - 14:30
Boat leaving
Dive 1 - 50 m (165 ft)
Briefing dive 2
Our boat will take you to Shipwreck Point. Two small tug-boats, deliberately sunk in the 80's at 5 m, but ooops.... hurricane Lenny in 1999 decided different and they ended up at 50 m just on the edge of a 85 m (280 ft) drop off.
Currents allowing, the second part of the dive will be along a vertical wall.

09:00 - 11:00
13:30 - 14:30
Boat leaving
Dive 2 - 65 m (215 ft)
Briefing dive 3
The boat will moore at Snake Bay. The fishermen of the nearby village used to clean their catch at the shore, attracting moray eels. Hence the name of the spot. Snake Bay features a steep drop-off with a vast varaiety of soft as well as hard corals.

09:00 - 12:00
14:00 - 15:00
Boat leaving
Dive 3 - 75 m (250 ft)
Briefing dive 4
First dive at Armageddon. Jumping off our boat, we will venture into the deep to find a huge barge, lying upside down between 50 m and 75 m. This artifical reef was "created" in the time that human beings were not aware of the fragility of coral reefs at all. Cranes, trucks, cars, concrete piles and tanks were dumped here in the late 70's. But nature has taken over once again. Great for wide-angle as well as macro fotography and a healthy and diverse reef in the shallows.
Thursday, August 22
08:00
09:00 - 12:00
14:00 - 15:00
Boat leaving
Dive 4 - 100 m (330 ft)
Briefing dive 5
After a 20 min. sail, our boat will anchor at Bullen Bay, a.k.a. The Fingers.
Starting at 10 m, a steep drop-off goes to incredible depths. The topography is ravine-like (hence "The Fingers") and corals can be found at any depth.
Friday, August 23
08:00
09:00 - 12:30
Boat leaving
Dive 5 - 120 m (400 ft)
On dive 4 we already got familiar with Armageddon. We will dive there again, but this time almost twice as deep to find a structure that seems to be out of this world. We named it "Portal to Parallel Universe". A massive cube, ribs only, 3 m (10 ft) in length is sitting on an eerie, desolated plateau at 120 m. Do you dare to get inside and be transported to another universe? On our way up, support divers will relieve us from our deep bail-out tanks and we can further explore the Armageddon site.

19:00 - ??:??
De-briefing and BBQ
At night we offer you a Brazilian BBQ. Plenty of time to share experiences, suggestions and plan the next event.
