Updated: Apr 21, 2020
Join The Suit Curaçao today, Sunday September 1st, 2019 as another exciting day unfolds!
The Suit Curaçao will continue this unique Curaçao adventure swimming from east of Fuikbaai with the goal of reaching Marichi. But, who The Suit will meet along the way is by far the most motivating and exciting factors that will drive the momentum from the 8:15am start time!!
Highlights of today's swim will include;
Caracasbaai - approximately 10:00am - The Suit Curaçao will be passing Director's Bay, an historic Curaçao landmark dating back to the early 1900's. The fact is that starting in the early 1900's until departing in 1985, the Directors of the Royal Dutch Shell Group and the Dutch Royal family used this bay exclusively and it was considered private. Now, the beach and surrounding area are open for public use. Today, Director's Bay is one of the most perfect examples of sustainable tourism since largely due to regularly monthly underwater cleaning events conducted by the Curacao Hospitality and Tourism Association's (CHATA) Dive Task Force and because it is also a Coral Restoration Foundation Curaçao (CRFC) outplanting site.
After passing Director's Bay, The Suit Curaçao will pass the famous Tugboat wreck located at the bottom of the infamous "Quarantine House"then complete the crossing of Caracasbaai heading toward the next destination - The Curaçao Sea Aquarium Park - passing Jan Thiel Beach along the way.
Curacao Sea Aquarium Park - approximately 11:00am - The Suit Curaçao will be met and greeted by Dolphin friends from Dolphin Academy not to mention the iconic Curasub from Substation Curaçao! If you are not in the water swimming along with The Suit Curacao, then check out the newly launched Ocean Lens Curaçao where you have a perfect dry view of the incredible underwater world plus a newly installed coral nursery from the Coral Restoration Foundation Curaçao!!
Marie Pampoen - approximately 12:30pm - short break and a visit with Arthur Curiel, a retired Sports Educator who relentlessly volunteers to assist many Curaçao seniors to stay active through swimming practices at the Marie Pampoen pier.
Last Stop at 2:00pm - Arriving at Marichi will signal the completion of the day for The Suit Curaçao! Stay Tuned... will be be posting a summary later in the day!
