This tour visits the North West coast of Curacao. This is where the wind pushes the sea with such a force onto the coast that you will find water spectacles such as the natural jacuzzi where one can bathe in a shallow, naturally formed, bathtub. You can get showered by a natural fountain. You will go the Shete Boka Natural Park, where the powerful breaking of the waves not only creates the Boka Pistol (the natural water canon) and Boka Tabla (a cave you should not miss when visiting Curacao) but also the typical thunder that the locals call the Breath of Curacao, henceforth the name of this tour.
This is a half day tour from 9am to 1pm with pick-up time between 8am and 9am depending on your accommodation. For cruise passengers the pick up time will be adjusted according to your arrival time to the cruise port.
Mini desert of Curacao: After pickup from your accommodation and a safety briefing, your adventure starts off at the wide-open desert planes where your guide will tell you about the volcanic and coral geological origins of the island with three distinct terraces running for miles along the north coastline of Curacao.
Supladó: You then visit the natural jacuzzi where the sea-water and foam are spray through a chute into the air displaying colourful fountains and rainbows. You can stand in the shallow warm water surrounding the Supladó and watch the spectacular show from close by.
Boka Tabla: Then you head towards the Shete Boka National Park where you visit a cave when half of it is immersed in water with a narrow opening towards the sea, allowing powerful breaking waves to rush into the cave with a pounding and roaring resonance. This beautiful sight set in its natural theater is an unforgetable memory of Curacao.
Boka Pistol: An inlet where the waves smash against the coral rock wall and explode into a furious fountain that sounds like a gun shot, hence the name. You can photograph the spectacle from a lookout point or stand facing the water with the risk of getting very wet.
