Exploring the West Coast of Curacao

On Tuesday 25thof September, I went on an amazingly wild trip 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 wonderful method to see the island of Curaçao from an entire totally different perspective, with all her hidden secrets that can only 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 correct aspect, with the coast to my proper, left me in just the right place to get continually splashed each time we hit a wave just right. By the point we reached Mambo, I used to be positively soaked by means of, with my hat dripping water, and it was just pointless to wipe my sunglasses dry. With how briskly we have been going, flying, leaping within the water I really couldn’t care much less about being soaked. The boat ride was enjoyable and just thrilling one its own! However, to be trustworthy it can be somewhat scary once we jumped out of the water and landed back into the ocean, so unexpectedly.

Our first cease at 10:forty five was near the beach Kokomo, this stop was just a break in order that we might stretch a bit and have something to drink. Drinks are included in this journey and are available all through the tour! Here we could see the clear, turquoise blue water and it regarded 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 noticed all the well-known spots of Curaçao from the beaches comparable to Porto Mari, Cas Abao, Knip, and hidden gems within the sand, to the stunning 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 45 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. Subsequent, we went to the beautiful Playa Lagun, which is hidden between towering cliffs for lunch at Bahia. Bahia is located on the prime cliff with a breath-taking view of the beach and the turquoise waters below. Benefit from the amazing 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 in direction of the east facet of the island and we encountered the heavy current. Although it was considered an excellent day, current smart, it was nonetheless very intense even with the professional navigating of our Captain Tamara. There were a number of jumps, dips, drops, and those on the left aspect have been splashed fairly a bit. While most would find this thrilling, as this is a very exciting boat journey, it was just intense for me! I used to be very completely satisfied when we reached the remaining stop close to Kokomo for a break. Quickly right here after we were in Punda having fun with the historic structure within the city middle and for an image stop. Our remaining stop was at St. Barbara for a quick refreshing swim before we toured around Spanish Water. Inside Spanish Water are the luxurious villas of Villa Royale Curacao. We explored deep inside Spanish Water, elements I never saw before till we docked back at 5 pm.
