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 way in which to Playa Piskado and back in seven hours! This tour was a superb solution to see the island of Curaçao from a complete totally different perspective, with all her hidden secrets that can solely 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 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 fitting facet, with the coast to my right, left me in just the fitting position to get continuously splashed each time we hit a wave just right. By the point we reached Mambo, I used to be positively soaked through, with my hat dripping water, and it was just pointless to wipe my sun shades dry. With how briskly we have been going, flying, jumping within the water I really couldn’t care less about being soaked. The boat trip was fun and just thrilling one its personal! Nevertheless, to be sincere it may be a little scary when 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 might stretch a bit and have one thing to drink. Drinks are included on this journey and are available all through 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 in which to Piskado, we saw all the famous spots of Curaçao from the beaches such as Porto Mari, Cas Abao, Knip, and hidden gems within the sand, to the beautiful nature and hotels.

By 11:30 we reached Playa Piskado the best place to stay in curacao we may enter the blue waters and snorkel with the Sea Turtles there. I spent the subsequent 45 minutes watching Sea Turtles come and go, diving underwater to see them closer. Quickly I swam back to the boat, having fun with 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 at the prime cliff with a breath-taking view of the beach and the turquoise waters below. Enjoy the superb view, great meals, 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 aspect of the island and we encountered the heavy current. Though it was considered an excellent day, present wise, 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 quite a bit. While most would discover this thrilling, as this can be a very thrilling boat trip, it was just intense for me! I used to be very glad once we reached the remainder stop close to Kokomo for a break. Quickly here after we were in Punda having fun with the historic architecture in the city center and for a picture stop. Our closing stop was at St. Barbara for a fast refreshing swim before we toured around Spanish Water. Inside Spanish Water are the luxurious villas of Curacao. We explored deep inside Spanish Water, elements I never saw earlier than till we docked back at 5 pm.
