In Curacao we used a company called Curacao Actief (see website). They came highly recommended by people I trusted. There are not enough good adjectives to describe our day! We took a "world of water tour" Our family and the guide: that's it! We saw sea turtles, an amazing sea cave (one of the coolest things ever) we went to a natural hot tub, saw and photographed amazing surf, snorkeled in a very private lagoon (no one else's fins in my face!) and had a lunch to die for (and that is with the bounty of cruise ship food already . . ahem under our belts!). The guide was unbeatable. They were prompt, the vehicle was new and clean, everything customized to us--we could say yes or no to any stops. We went to an area that was not developed. It is my favorite shore trip ever. Some ladies we ate lunch with used this same company for a snorkeling only tour and raved as well. I would use them again in a heart beat! We were picked up and dropped off right at the pier terminal, had many many photo ops of the harbor and town before heading out to the island's natural wonders. He also had a working order two way radio and we had plenty of time to summon a back up vehicle if the worst had happened and we needed to get back to the ship on time. It was amazing.
