With Mermaid to Klein Curacao. A household name for many, they have been the Klein Curacao specialist for 35 years. The spacious beach house with observation tower, excellent catering and professional crew are also worth mentioning.
Klein Curacao with Mermaid

As soon as you step onto the boat you are offered coffee or tea and you know right away: this is going to be a wonderful day! Because of its size and shape, the boat is very stable, so little chance of seasickness.

In the afternoon, you can also order alcoholic drinks from the bar for a pleasant price.

What does Klein Curacao with Mermaid look like?
At 06:45 you can check in at the Fishermen’s Pier. A bit early, but look at the bright side: you have a long beautiful day ahead of you! Did you know that Mermaid offers the trip with the longest stay on Klein Curacao?
After checking in, you can find a spot on the boat and enjoy a cup of coffee or tea. There is a brief explanation and then a quick departure, off to Klein Curacao! The large motor vessel takes 1.5 hours to get to Klein Curacao. Once the boat has anchored you can swim to the beach, or get into the dinghy that will take you right into the surf.
While you are at the large beach house looking for a nice spot on a beach bed in the shade, the crew gets right to work preparing a delicious breakfast buffet. After breakfast, you can explore the island. Mermaid has created a fun Walking Tour to explore the island, a guidebook you can take with you for a fun route with all kinds of information about what you will encounter. See the dilapidated lighthouse or washed-up shipwrecks, or marvel at the lizards and crabs you will find all over the island.
By the end of the morning you will see the crew working hard again for the delicious and extensive bbq lunch. Slide in for the buffet including chicken, spare ribs and burgers, salads and fruit; feast! You will be sitting in the large beach house, in the shade at spacious picnic tables. The bar is also very nice: soft drinks, fruit juices, beer, wine, rum, vodka available (alcoholic € 3 per glass).
After lunch you can relax and enjoy Klein Curacao again. Take a dip in the crystal-clear sea (who knows, you might run into sea turtles) or lie back on your beach bed with a drink.
Unique at Mermaid: At the beach house, Mermaid also has a beautiful observation tower. This really is a must for stunning photos (Instagram-worthy!).
At 3:30 p.m., unfortunately, it is already time to leave. The return trip is a delightful cruise, riding the waves with the sun. Around 5 p.m. the boat will dock again at the Fishermen’s Pier and this beautiful day trip is unfortunately over. But you are certainly a beautiful memory richer!
