Exploring the West Coast of Curacao

On Tuesday 25thof September, I went on an amazingly wild journey to West Punt and back. On an orange powerboat I was able to go from Spanish Water, all the best way to Playa Piskado and back in seven hours! This tour was a superb approach to see the island of Curaçao from an entire totally different perspective, with all her hidden secrets and techniques that may only be discovered by Sea.

My day began at Fishermen’s Pier (Visserhaven) at 10 am, which is just left of Caracasbaai (on the proper) and in one of the harbors on Spanish Water. After signing the waiver, tucking my bag away, once in my seat we quickly powered out of Spanish Water, and into open waters. Being seated on the proper aspect, with the coast to my proper, left me in just the right position to get continuously splashed every time we hit a wave just right. By the time we reached Mambo, I used to be positively soaked by, with my hat dripping water, and it was just pointless to wipe my sunglasses dry. With how briskly we were going, flying, jumping within the water I really couldn’t care less about being soaked. The boat experience was fun and just exciting one its own! Nonetheless, to be sincere it may be somewhat scary after we jumped out of the water and landed back into the ocean, so unexpectedly.

Our first stop at 10:forty five was near the beach Kokomo, this cease was just a break in order that we may stretch a bit and have one thing to drink. Drinks are included on this journey and are available throughout the tour! Right here we may see the clear, turquoise blue water and it seemed so inviting! Sadly, this isn’t our cease and we wouldn’t be stopping till Playa Piskado. On the best way to Piskado, we noticed all of the well-known spots of Curaçao from the beaches equivalent to Porto Mari, Cas Abao, Knip, and hidden gems within the sand, to the gorgeous nature and hotels.

By eleven:30 we reached Playa Piskado where we might enter the blue waters and snorkel with the Sea Turtles there. I spent the next 45 minutes watching Sea Turtles come and go, diving underwater to see them closer. Soon I swam back to the boat, enjoying the cool water, and seeing all this underwater life at Playa Piskado. Next, we went to the attractive Playa Lagun, which is hidden between towering cliffs for lunch at Bahia. Bahia is located on the high cliff with a breath-taking view of the beach and the turquoise waters below. Enjoy the superb view, great food, and even the kittens that roam the restaurant. After lunch, we went to the magical blue room and watch this hidden cave dance with shimmering blue lights.

After leaving the blue room, we cruised back towards the east facet of the island and we encountered the heavy current. Regardless that it was considered a good day, current clever, it was still very intense even with the expert navigating of our Captain Tamara. There were a lot of jumps, dips, drops, and people on the left facet were splashed fairly a bit. While most would find this thrilling, as this can be a very thrilling boat journey, it was just intense for me! I was very comfortable after we reached the remaining stop near Kokomo for a break. Soon here after we have been in Punda enjoying the historic structure within the city heart and for an image stop. Our remaining cease was at St. Barbara for a quick refreshing swim before we toured round Spanish Water. Within Spanish Water are the luxurious villas of Villa Royale Curacao. We explored deep inside Spanish Water, elements I never saw before till we docked back at 5 pm.
