Exploring the West Coast of Curacao

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

My day started at Fishermen’s Pier (Visserhaven) at 10 am, which is just left of Caracasbaai (on the appropriate) and in one of many harbors on Spanish Water. After signing the waiver, tucking my bag away, as soon as in my seat we quickly powered out of Spanish Water, and into open waters. Being seated on the best aspect, with the coast to my right, left me in just the precise position to get continually splashed every time we hit a wave just right. By the point we reached Mambo, I was positively soaked through, with my hat dripping water, and it was just pointless to wipe my sunglasses dry. With how briskly we were going, flying, leaping in the water I really couldn’t care much less about being soaked. The boat experience was fun and just thrilling one its personal! However, to be trustworthy it may be somewhat scary after we jumped out of the water and landed back into the ocean, so unexpectedly.

Our first stop at 10:45 was near the beach Kokomo, this stop was just a break so that we may stretch a bit and have something to drink. Drinks are included on this trip and are available throughout the tour! Right here we might see the clear, turquoise blue water and it regarded so inviting! Sadly, this is not our cease and we wouldn’t be stopping until Playa Piskado. On the way to Piskado, we noticed all the famous spots of Curaçao from the beaches akin to Porto Mari, Cas Abao, Knip, and hidden gems within the sand, to the stunning nature and hotels.

By eleven:30 we reached Playa Piskado where we may 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. Subsequent, we went to the beautiful Playa Lagun, which is hidden between towering cliffs for lunch at Bahia. Bahia is located on the top cliff with a breath-taking view of the beach and the turquoise waters below. Benefit from the superb view, nice 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 in the direction of the east side of the island and we encountered the heavy current. Despite the fact that it was considered a good day, present smart, it was still very intense even with the expert navigating of our Captain Tamara. There were numerous jumps, dips, drops, and those on the left side have been splashed quite a bit. Whereas most would find this thrilling, as this can be a very thrilling boat trip, it was just intense for me! I used to be very blissful when we reached the remainder cease close to Kokomo for a break. Quickly here after we have been in Punda enjoying the historic structure within the city middle and for an image stop. Our last cease was at St. Barbara for a fast refreshing swim before we toured round Spanish Water. Inside Spanish Water are the luxurious villas of curacao resorts. We explored deep inside Spanish Water, components I by no means noticed earlier than until we docked back at 5 pm.
