Imagine yourself on an uninhabited island in the middle of the Caribbean sea, a pearl white beach stretching for miles, crystal clear ocean waters all around you, and in the middle of the island, a tall pink lighthouse…. Sounds like paradise right?

A trip on Catamaran BlueFinn to Klein Curaçao is thoroughly enjoyable, with the sun, wind and sea spray in your face. The build of a catamaran reduces the possibility of seasickness to almost non-existent, so this is a perfect choice for people susceptible to motion sickness. The crew is there to inform you about the background details of each site visited during the tour. They are also there to serve endless drinks and a delicious BBQ lunch.
Although Klein Curacao is only a small island in the large Caribbean Sea, it offers so much to do, for so many different interests, in such a small space. Dare devils, sun seekers, underwater admirers and for those that love total tranquility, Klein Curacao is definitely a pearl to visit!
The trip to Klein Curacao is about an hour and 45 minutes by boat from Curacao. Relax on one of the many sun-protected benches, the open-air hulls or on the webbing. You will certainly get wet on the web, but you do have a front row seat when it comes to spotting dolphins! Dolphins often swim alongside the boat, play in the waves and show off their jumping skills. Somedays the trip can be wild and wet because of the waves and currents, but the reward is priceless! From afar you can see the bounty sun-drenched bounty island and the old iconic pink lighthouse. Upon arrival at Klein Curacao, the crystal clear water is calm again, perfect for swimming, snorkeling and scuba diving. Although the dry way to get to shore from the catamaran is with a dinghy, we recommend you to take a snorkel and swim to shore! When you go into the water, you immediately see lots of colorful fish and sea turtles all around you! Between May and August, you can even see baby sea turtles making their way from the sandy beach to the clear ocean water.
When you go ashore, explore the island while you blissfully sunbathe en route. The distance from the beach to the iconic pink lighthouse, shipwrecks and ruins is not too far for a walk. Put on your sunscreen and try to go there early as it can gradually get very hot in the middle of the island as the day progresses. At noon, the crew is ready to serve you an extensive BBQ buffet with 3 kinds of meat from the grill (tasty spareribs, chicken and steak), 3 homemade salads (pasta pesto salad, kidney bean salad, couscous salad), bread and our famous homemade Dutch peanut sauce!
Around 3:00 pm* we sail out, waving goodbye to this Caribbean pearl and on the wings of the wind head back to Curacao. The way back goes smoothly as we sail with the northeast trade winds and currents. Perfect conditions to kick off our famous Captains Happy Hour!! Enjoy fresh fruit and your favorite drink! Watching the sunset, you cannot help but to reminisce about a beautiful day and great time on Klein Curacao.
