Curacao has perfect weather for for sailing. This is due to the constant breeze. Also most of the time the sea is calm, ideal for sailing and boat trips. Whether you sail with a wooden sailing ship, a catamaran, a motor yacht or a luxury cruise ship, you will enjoy spectacular views and the clear ocean water.
Far away from the hustle and bustle of Curaçao's Punda and Otrobanda districts lies a remote, coral island with white sand beaches, crystal clear water, a spectacular reef and colorful sea life. The flat, wind-swept island of Klein Curaçao (Dutch for Little Curaçao) is a mecca for divers, snorkelers and sunbathers. The Mermaid, a sturdy sea-going vessel, awaits passengers at the Fishermen's Pier every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday and Sunday mornings at 6:45am.
Propinquity is a very seaworthy yacht of the famous Contessa 32 Class. She is availble for daycharters along the south coast of Curaçao and to Klein Curaçao. On these trips we visit nice, secluded bays and interesting snorkeling sites. Beside the skipper there is room for 5 guests. Minimal duration 4 hours (approx. USD 110,- = approx. € 105,90 per hour).
You are experienced enough to sail an open keelboat or dinghy by yourself? Then you can rent a nice Centaur, Sunfish, Splash or Optimist (for kids) so that you can explore Spanish Water.
They provide you a chart and give you an extensive briefing about the sailing area. Rates starts at USD 20 (approx. €19,25) per hour.
