Captain Don’s, Curacao NA March 2000

This trip was organized by Joe Rozak and Denny Mclauglin primarily as a nice warm water destination for a group of students from Germantown Academy to spend their spring Break.  Denny would provide the open water training (“Check out dives”) to the student who completed the pool work with him in the GA class held immediately before the trip.  In addition to the new divers there were some previously certified GA students and several adults who enjoyed trips with Denny.  I went to help denny (I was a long term AI for Denny) with the less experienced divers and needed a spring trip to fill my dive fix and hold me over until the local summer dive season started.  The trip was loaded with some of my long term diving friends including Rosanne, Denny’s Wife, Joe Rozak, and Arnold Ashcraft.


We had a great time and really enjoyed Captain Don’s Habitat (as for 2011 apparently no longer in business in Curacao).  Our package did not include all our meals and the drinks were not included.  Our package also included two boat dives a day and unlimited beach diving.  I really liked the beach diving here – there was a lot to see close to shore and relatively shallow.  I liked the house reef better than the boat dives.


The video shows Silver sides, morays, peacock flounder, puffer fish, turtle, barracuda, scorpion fish and a Juvenile spotted drum, in addition to the usual corals and tropical fish.
