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 to Playa Piskado and back in seven hours! This tour was a fabulous technique to see the island of Curaçao from a complete completely different perspective, with all her hidden secrets and techniques 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 precise) and in one of the harbors on Spanish Water. After signing the waiver, tucking my bag away, as soon as in my seat we soon powered out of Spanish Water, and into open waters. Being seated on the correct aspect, with the coast to my proper, left me in just the right place to get always splashed every time we hit a wave just right. By the time we reached Mambo, I was positively soaked by means of, with my hat dripping water, and it was just pointless to wipe my sun shades dry. With how fast we were going, flying, leaping in the water I really could not care much less about being soaked. The boat ride was enjoyable and just exciting one its personal! Nonetheless, to be trustworthy it may be a bit of scary once we jumped out of the water and landed back into the sea, so unexpectedly.

Our first stop at 10:45 was near the beach Kokomo, this stop was just a break in order that we could stretch a bit and have one thing to drink. Drinks are included in this journey and are available throughout the tour! Here we might see the clear, turquoise blue water and it looked so inviting! Sadly, this is not our stop and we wouldn’t be stopping until Playa Piskado. On the way in which to Piskado, we saw all of the famous spots of Curaçao from the beaches comparable to Porto Mari, Cas Abao, Knip, and hidden gems within the sand, to the beautiful nature and hotels.

By 11:30 we reached Playa Piskado where we might enter the blue waters and snorkel with the Sea Turtles there. I spent the next forty five minutes watching Sea Turtles come and go, diving underwater to see them closer. Quickly I swam back to the boat, enjoying the cool water, and seeing all this underwater life at Playa Piskado. Next, we went to the beautiful Playa Lagun, which is hidden between towering cliffs for lunch at Bahia. Bahia is located at the top cliff with a breath-taking view of the beach and the turquoise waters below. Benefit from the wonderful 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 aspect of the island and we encountered the heavy current. Despite the fact that it was considered a great day, current smart, it was nonetheless very intense even with the expert navigating of our Captain Tamara. There were lots of jumps, dips, drops, and people on the left side had been splashed fairly a bit. While most would find this thrilling, as it is a very thrilling boat trip, it was just intense for me! I was very happy once we reached the rest cease near Kokomo for a break. Soon here after we have been in Punda having fun with the historic architecture in the metropolis center and for a picture stop. Our last stop was at St. Barbara for a quick refreshing swim before we toured around Spanish Water. Inside Spanish Water are the luxurious villas of curacao resorts. We explored deep within Spanish Water, elements I never saw earlier than till we docked back at 5 pm.
