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 method to see the island of Curaçao from a whole different perspective, with all her hidden secrets that may solely be discovered by Sea.

My day started at Fishermen’s Pier (Visserhaven) at 10 am, which is just left of Caracasbaai (on the suitable) and in one of the harbors on Spanish Water. After signing the waiver, tucking my bag away, once in my seat we soon powered out of Spanish Water, and into open waters. Being seated on the precise facet, with the coast to my right, left me in just the correct place to get constantly splashed each time we hit a wave just right. By the point we reached Mambo, I used to be positively soaked by way 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 within the water I really could not care much less about being soaked. The boat ride was fun and just exciting one its own! However, to be sincere it can be a bit of scary once we jumped out of the water and landed back into the sea, so unexpectedly.

Our first cease at 10:45 was close to the beach Kokomo, this cease was just a break so that we might stretch a bit and have something to drink. Drinks are included on this journey and are available all through the tour! Right here we could see the clear, turquoise blue water and it appeared so inviting! Sadly, this isn’t our cease and we wouldn’t be stopping till Playa Piskado. On the way in which to Piskado, we saw all of the well-known spots of Curaçao from the beaches reminiscent of 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 could enter the blue waters and snorkel with the Sea Turtles there. I spent the following forty five 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. Subsequent, we went to the attractive Playa Lagun, which is hidden between towering cliffs for lunch at Bahia. Bahia is positioned at the high cliff with a breath-taking view of the beach and the turquoise waters below. Benefit from the amazing view, nice 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 towards the east aspect of the island and we encountered the heavy current. Though it was considered an excellent day, present smart, it was nonetheless very intense even with the knowledgeable navigating of our Captain Tamara. There have been plenty of jumps, dips, drops, and people on the left aspect had been splashed fairly a bit. Whereas most would discover this thrilling, as it is a very thrilling boat journey, it was just intense for me! I was very comfortable when we reached the rest stop close to Kokomo for a break. Soon right here after we were in Punda having fun with the historic architecture within the city heart and for a picture stop. Our closing cease was at St. Barbara for a fast refreshing swim before we toured round Spanish Water. Within Spanish Water are the luxurious villas of Villa Royale Curacao. We explored deep within Spanish Water, components I never saw before till we docked back at 5 pm.
