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 wonderful technique to see the island of Curaçao from an entire different perspective, with all her hidden secrets and techniques that can solely be discovered by Sea.
My day started at Fishermen’s Pier (Visserhaven) at 10 am, which is just left of Caracasbaai (on the right) and in one of many harbors on Spanish Water. After signing the waiver, tucking my bag away, once in my seat we quickly powered out of Spanish Water, and into open waters. Being seated on the correct side, with the coast to my right, left me in just the correct place to get consistently splashed every time we hit a wave just right. By the time 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 fast we were going, flying, jumping within the water I really couldn’t care much less about being soaked. The boat journey was fun and just thrilling one its own! Nevertheless, to be sincere it can be slightly scary when we jumped out of the water and landed back into the sea, so unexpectedly.
Our first stop at 10:forty five was near the beach Kokomo, this cease was just a break so that we could stretch a bit and have something to drink. Drinks are included on this journey and are available throughout the tour! Right here we could see the clear, turquoise blue water and it appeared so inviting! Sadly, this isn’t our stop and we wouldn’t be stopping till Playa Piskado. On the way in which to Piskado, we noticed all the famous 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 eleven:30 we reached Playa Piskado the place we could enter the blue waters and snorkel with the Sea Turtles there. I spent the subsequent 45 minutes watching Sea Turtles come and go, diving underwater to see them closer. Soon I swam back to the boat, enjoying the cool water, and seeing all this underwater life at Playa Piskado. Subsequent, we went to the gorgeous Playa Lagun, which is hidden between towering cliffs for lunch at Bahia. Bahia is positioned on the prime cliff with a breath-taking view of the beach and the turquoise waters below. Benefit from the amazing view, great 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. Even though it was considered a great day, present wise, it was still very intense even with the knowledgeable navigating of our Captain Tamara. There have been a lot of jumps, dips, drops, and those on the left side had been splashed quite a bit. Whereas most would discover this thrilling, as it is a very exciting boat journey, it was just intense for me! I used to be very happy when we reached the rest cease near Kokomo for a break. Soon here after we were in Punda having fun with the historic structure in the city heart and for a picture stop. Our final stop was at St. Barbara for a fast 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 by no means saw earlier than till we docked back at 5 pm.
