Boat trip to Klein Curacao
When you decide to visit Klein Curacao for a day, the crossing can be an adventure in itself. Generally, a boat takes between 45 minutes and an hour and a half to reach the island. This depends entirely on the type of boat and the size of the boat. To make the boat trip to Klein Curacao something special it is possible to choose from different types of boats for the crossing which we will describe below.
The Bobcat and a luxury speedboat about 12.5 meters long. The boat can accommodate about 22 people. It is a comfortable boat with pleasant chairs and canopy so that everyone sits in the shade. With this boat, the crossing will take about 45 minutes and because this is the smallest boat, it is also the most economical boat trip to Klein Curacao.
We give you the opportunity to choose from four catamarans. These are two somewhat smaller catamarans, the Cool Runnings and the Rastamaran of the IRIE Times trip and two large catamarans, the Black & White and the Apache of the Blue Finn trip. Smaller catamarans take about an hour and 15 minutes to reach Klein Curacao and large catamarans 20 minutes longer. What makes trips on a catamaran unique and adventurous is that you can lie in the nets in the front of the boat and have a front row seat to spot wild dolphins and, depending on the wind, it is possible to sail back to Curacao.
Motorboat and the Yacht.
These two boats are fairly similar with only two major differences. The hunt (the Serendipity) is considerably faster. Where the Serendipity takes about an hour to reach Klein Curacao, the motorboat (the Mermaid) takes over an hour and a half. And the yacht is a lot more luxurious with a little more space. On the yacht, you sit in a comfortable leather chair on the upper or aft deck of the boat, both fully shaded. On the Mermaid, you also sit on the upper deck, also comfortable and also in the shade, but it’s all just a little more modest.
