Scuba Diving in Curacao, Caribbean
Dive Site: Superior Producer
Location: Curacao, Netherlands Antilles
Length: 70 metres (230)
Depth: 22 - 35 metres (72 - 115 feet)
Visibility: 15 - 50 metres (50 - 165 feet), depending on the current
The Superior Producer went down about 30 years ago with a very precious cargo of jeans and booze. The wreck is beautifully located just off of the Holiday Beach Dive Center, who will drop you off at it. There is an open cargo area and beautifull swim through the steering house. A must do dive on Curacao.

Curacao is great, I spent a week there with a bunch of mates, we had seadoo scooters for all the dives and it was brilliant.
This was my first wreck dive and how fantastic it was. In a choppy sea visibility is so good you can see her from the surface. Lots of fish around the bottom of the ship including spotted drums, we were stalked by a number of barracuda whilst ascending, whilst the largest of the group (about 5 foot) swam up and down the length of the wreck.
The best part was that there was only four of us (including 2 instructors) diving this big wreck...as with all the dives in Curacao great to dive as no crowds (a shock after the Red Sea!)

A very nice dive for advanced divers. Nice to do as a boat dive, but often also possible from shore.
Nice place to dive. We did it twice and enjoyed both of the dives. For me, it is better than other "famous" diving sites in the island.
Good dive and accessible from the shore with a brief paddle out. You can penetrate the wreck and go into the wheelhouse and up through the roof as well as swim inside. It is not a difficult dive even though listed as advanced.
