Your accommodations

Nestled along the stunning shores of Curaçao, the LionsDive Beach Resort stands as an idyllic haven for both leisure seekers and passionate divers alike. This exquisite resort boasts a plethora of luxurious amenities, top-notch accommodations, and a commitment to sustainable tourism that sets it apart from the rest. At the heart of it all is the renowned 5-star dive shop, Ocean Encounters, offering a gateway to the mesmerizing underwater world of the Caribbean.

LionsDive Beach Resort offers an array of accommodations to suit every traveler’s preference. From cozy and elegant rooms to spacious suites with breathtaking sea views, the resort ensures a comfortable and memorable stay.

Sustainable diving

At the heart of LionsDive’s ethos lies an unwavering commitment to sustainable dive tourism. The resort offers easy access to a captivating house reef that serves as a nursery and out-planting site for Reef Renewal Curaçao, a conservation initiative dedicated to preserving and restoring the region’s delicate coral ecosystems. Divers and marine enthusiasts can participate in these efforts, contributing to the protection and revitalization of Curaçao’s underwater wonders. LionsDive contributes 1% of your booking fee to Reef Renewal Curaçao’s ecosystem-restoration work.

Protecting Caribbean islands

For several years Seacology has worked to protect threatened island habitats and species in the neighboring Dutch Caribbean territories of Saba and Bonaire. While we do not yet have an active project in Curacao, on this expedition you will join us as we explore potential project sites.

On the island of Bonaire, we’ve helped save one of the world’s rarest trees from extinction. A Seacology-funded barrier fence protects seedlings of the Bonaire Palm from invasive donkeys and goats, which were grazing on the young trees and preventing them from growing to maturity.

Our latest project in the region works to prevent overfishing of the Queen conch, a giant mollusk that is vitally important to the economy and culture of the island.

On remote Saba Island, northeast of Curaçao, we funded improvements to an educational center that helps connect local youth to the fascinating marine environment surrounding their island. Its importance was highlighted by a recent visit from by the Dutch Royal Family.
