Second trip to Curacao in 6 months. Porto Marie is a great place to spend the entire day. Great beach, dive facilities, rest., bar and great water. Beach is near Coral Estates which is outstanding in itself. They have a house reef that will soon be re-open with a new dive shop, rest., spa, etc. Easy dive and double reef offers different interests and levels. Stay a little to right of the swim platform and drop down between markers right before water color changes. We stayed on the white sandy bottom for about 75' until we came to the second reef. We were at a depth of 125' and ran parallel with the second reef. Then to 85' of depth and turned back at 60' of depth. Two large spotted moray eels, larger snappers, blue tangs... Everything was great as we headed back to the first reef and thought I hooked my new dive camera to my BC. I expect it should be in Aruba by now... Wonderful place for divers and non-divers. Safe, fun, relaxing and beautiful!
