My last day in Curaçao involved a real whiz-bang adventure under the sea. Substation Curacao is a specially designed 3-person submarine which takes passengers down to a depth of 400+ feet. The opportunity to view a pair of shipwrecks along with the island’s incredible undersea life at a depth I could never reach with a scuba – let alone snorkel – was pretty amazing. I’m thinking of what I could possibly compare it with but words, for a change, escape me. Half kid in a candy shop, half James Bond in For Your Eyes Only, it isn’t a cheap experience – and emphatically not for the claustrophobic. But feeling like Jacques Cousteau for an afternoon? That’s priceless, indeed.
