This type of documented exploration & discoveries is producing dynamic results that are now being published in major scientific journals. Additionally, by monitoring the deeper reefs to find out what influence factors like climate change, acidification, pollution and invasive species have on ecosystems in greater depths, is another aspect that keeps researchers occupied with. Simultaneously they are also trying to find out in what way the deeper reefs might affect the recovery capacity of the shallow reefs.

This is like diving inside an Aquarium! Oddly enough, this incredible fringing reef is the house reef of the Curaçao Sea Aquarium and it is one of the healthiest reefs around Curacao. And it’s all because it’s located at a point, with loads of fresh salt water and currents are constantly merging. At the mooring, divers will find anchors, a shaft and propellers. This is a MUST DIVE! This site also is home to Open Water Dolphin Dives with Ocean Encounters Diving and the Curasub! The Curasub is a 5 person deep sea submersible from Substation Curaçao which is capable of a 1000ft exploration dive... now that is a bucketlist experience!
