About this trip

The Mermaid is perhaps the best known and oldest trip to Klein Curacao. For over 30 years, this trip has provided people from all over the world with a unique day on this uninhabited island. The Mermaid is a luxurious and large, seaworthy ship. In case you are afraid of getting seasick, you hardly have to worry about this on the Mermaid. Precisely because it is such a large ship, it has very little wave action.

The crossing is an experience in itself and generally takes just under two hours. We then sailed right along the coast of Curacao so you have a great view of Fuik, Duivelsklip and Oostpunt. Sometimes dolphins even swim with the ship! When we have passed the most southwestern tip of Curacao we change course toward Klein Curacao. In the distance, you can already see Klein Curacao’s iconic lighthouse and shipwreck. But what will mainly stand out are the endless beautiful white beaches.

Once at anchor, a small motorboat will drop you off knee-deep on the beach right in front of the beautiful private beach house. The beach house has a covered patio with picnic tables, restrooms, showers, sun beds and umbrellas. In short, all the facilities to make an adventure trip as comfortable as possible.

At noon, a delicious BBQ buffet awaits you with a variety of fish and meat (our chicken is always halal), salads and fruit. And throughout the day you may use the open bar consisting of ice water, fruit juices and soft drinks. Alcoholic beverages such as beer and wine are also available for a small fee.

Around four o’clock it is time to sail back to Curacao and enjoy after a special day full of unique new memories.

  • The Mermaid sails to Klein Curacao all days of the week except Saturday.
  • The starting point of the trip is on Caracas Bay. Detailed directions follow in the reservation confirmation.
  • Would you like to be picked up at your hotel? No problem! And at the end of the trip we will bring you back.
  • If you have specific dietary preferences or allergies, please make them known during booking. We will do our best to take this into account.

We require only a deposit with each trip so you can make reservations anytime, anywhere. You may pay the balance on the day during check-in.

Great day on little Curacao
Lisette H
During your stay in Curacao, a day with the Mermaid really shouldn’t be missed. During this day, everything is well organized. On the boat there is coffee and tea, on little Curacao there is breakfast ready and in the afternoon a well catered bbq! The small island is beautiful with its white sand, blue clear water and beautiful fish and turtles. The day unfortunately flew by! So enjoyed! As icing on the cake, two dolphins swam with the boat for a while on the way back. Was a beautiful sight!
How well they got it right from Mermaid!
Patricia G
Nice day trip. What a good job they have done of Mermaid! On small Curacao a private domain… very nice set up…. watchtower.. delicious bbq… beach beds… snorkel gear… what more could you want? Definitely recommended.
Well organized trip to Klein Curacao.

We went with Mermaid to Klein Curaçao, a great experience. The trip to Klein Curaçao takes just under 2 hours. On board there will be coffee, tea and water, as you will have breakfast on the island (departure from the port on Caracas Bay Road is around 7 a.m.). On the island, you will first receive instruction, after which you can have a sumptuous breakfast…. there is enough for everyone. On the island, Mermaid has its own spot, with restrooms and plenty of sunbeds for everyone. There are a few umbrellas, should you bring your own, you can lie a little further away from the rest. You can take a walk to the lighthouse and shipwrecks or take a tour around the island (will take you ff). The water is great for swimming, snorkeling is also possible but with us there were not many fish in the morning. Lunch was also excellently arranged, so nicely organized all. At the end of the day, leftover rolls from breakfast are distributed to guests to feed to the fish, in which case it’s handy to bring your snorkel. When we left the island we still saw turtles, so a great day. Recommended to do so and I can recommend Mermaid.
Well-run trip with friendly crew
Renzo
Well taken care of trip, perfect food and drinks and a nice experience on the island. Crew is super friendly, attentive and immensely helpful (personal guidance for seasickness, extra help getting on and off the boat if needed). You burn extra quickly because of the reflection of the sun’s rays on the extremely white sand and sea, so bring good protection! There are also quite a lot of small annoying flies, so be sure to bring spray for this as well! Unfortunately, there is no WiFi on the island (nor 4G coverage). Fine for most people, but for people who need to stay reachable, it is not ideal.
Very well organized day trip

Decided to book a day on Klein Curacao at the Mermaid. A very well organized day trip from start to finish. A beautiful luxury boat and good facilities on the island itself. Food and drink is widely available and the lunch buffet was excellent. And all this with good and enthusiastic staff. Klein Curacao is a beautiful island where it is very good to spend a day. Don’t forget to walk to the lighthouse and the shipwrecks.
Safe and secure to Klein Curacao

“It was great again with the guys from Mermaid. Still a must to go especially with them to Klein Curacao. 2 years ago also with the family and now with the grandchildren. Lovely day with good care and safe.”
Beautiful day had in beautiful surroundings
Sand D
First the welcome on the boat with coffee and tea and then you leave for Klein Curaçao (eat something beforehand and take seasickness tablets because the way out can be a bit bumpy). Attention! We saw dolphins and jumping fish, super fun to see and shifts the focus away from the humping for a while :). Once you arrive, you’ll take small boats from the Mermaid. The nice thing about this excursion is that the mermaid has a restaurant with plenty of tables and chairs in the shade. This is the only one on the island!!! So there our advice: book this excursion. There are also umbrellas (few though) with sunbeds (amplemmm enough). You start on arrival with breakfast (sandwiches, drinks) and there are toilets. You then have until the BBQ to walk around the island. You can go to the lighthouse and in here. And to a shipwreck. There is also a more recent boat but we found this less interesting. Then you walk back, go about. then the bell and horn go off. This is the signal for the BBQ. There is ample food (not for vegetarians; but mss separate requests can be passed on). Then snorkeling (very clear water, turtles, rays, fish), lying on a bed for a bit and back again. The return trip is less intense and shorter. You will be brought back by limo. We enjoyed. Definitely highly recommended. Thanks Capability Cor? And the crew!
Top day, top care!
Pascal L
Top day, top care and really the best organization to go to little Curacao with… they have their own beach house and sunbeds and many shaded areas if desired… definitely very worthwhile and a great ending to our beautiful vacation!
An unforgettable day!
Dewi
Thanks to Mermaid, we experienced an unforgettable day on Klein Curaçao. At 6:30 a.m. we were picked up by limousine at our resort. Aboard the boat, we had a nice view of the sunrise on Spanish Water. In about an hour and a half to two hours, we sailed to Klein Curaçao. On the way out, you sail against the waves, a rough ride where you can get seasick. We were given the golden tip to sit below deck in the middle of the boat, there you feel the least swell. The way back is much more relaxed. Upon arrival at Klein Curaçao, you get to choose how you leave the boat: swimming or with a small motorboat that takes you to the beach. A simple but tasty breakfast is available. In the afternoon there is an exceptionally delicious and extensive barbecue for lunch. Non-alcoholic beverages are included in the price, alcoholic beverages will be charged upon your return to Curaçao. After lunch, the fish are fed, so you can still do some wonderful snorkeling and spot big fish. On the beach is Mermaid’s own Beach House. Beach beds, once outdoor shower and clean toilets are available there. Plenty of shaded areas have also been created. The staff is helpful, relaxed and friendly.
Visit Klein Curacao with Mermaid

Well organized boat trip with the Mermaid to Klein Curacao. We were picked up neatly on time at our hotel and it was done in small groups. We sailed on the beautiful boat with a relatively quiet trip to Klein Curacao in just under 2 hours. Very nice that they have their own “beach house” with enough sunbeds and shade for everyone, toilets, snorkel sets. Nothing must and everything is allowed. A very relaxed crew, excellent breakfast and extensive bbq lunch. Plenty of cold water, soft drinks, ice for the whole day including the return trip. The boats can’t dock at the pier so you are taken from the boat to the shoreline in smaller boats and back again in the same way. Or you jump/dive off the boat and swim to shore and you can do the same when you go back. Boat was full but not fully loaded which also made the return trip late afternoon very enjoyable and everyone on board dreamily enjoyed the return trip.
Must see... Just go there and enjoy
Frank Feenstra
Klein Curaçao is a place you simply must have been. We went out with the Mermaid. Good boat, nice staff and especially good service on the islet. Plenty of shade spots were made. There is a shower and toilet. You get breakfast and lunch in the form of a very well done BBQ. Besides diving and snorkeling, the lighthouse and the old ship are well worth seeing. Do go first thing in the morning, otherwise it will be too hot….
Super fun boat trip to Klein
Kim v
We had booked a boat trip to Klein Curaçao on the Mermaid. We were picked up on time at our hotel and brought back. The trip was very smooth, very pleasant boat and plenty of seats in the shade. On arrival the choice to swim or be taken to the beach by small boat on the beach, which was also very nice. Mermaid has a beach club on Klein Curaçao and the beds and umbrellas were included. Upon arrival a generous breakfast buffet and at noon a bbq lunch including spareribs, we had a great meal! We had a super fun day and we were very happy to have chosen Mermaid! Highly recommended.

Very well organized excursion to Klein Curaçao. Delicious breakfast and extensive BBQ for lunch. Beautiful tropical beach with great snorkeling, Crew was also top! Also really special to get so close to dolphins that do not live in captivity.
Recommended for a day trip to Klein Curacao!
Jacqueline B
Had a great day with the Mermaid. Super nice crew and very helpful. We had a friend in a wheelchair with us, everything was super organized! Delicious food at lunchtime, definitely recommended! Also not unimportant for some is that they have shadow spots on the boat.
A fantastic day with the Mermaid
Dirk-Jan V
What a fantastic day we had. A perfectly helpful and friendly crew. They make you feel like this day is really about you. It starts with the good clear explanation on board. After arrival on Klein Curacao, a delicious breakfast is waiting for you. In the afternoon a fantastic BBQ, with more than enough meat, bread, salad and fresh fruit. You can have a drink all day long. For a day trip to little Curacao, this is really recommended.
Well organized trip

We booked a day trip to Nasr Klein Curacao on the Mermaid. I can only say that they arranged the entire trip very well. You will be picked up and brought back in a limo Two hours on the boat (the sea was a bit rough there) Plenty of food and drink on the island for breakfast and BBQ later. Bbq also perfectly taken care of. Mermaid doesn’t take it easy! Friendly crew. Snorkel sets available. Also more than enough shade. And the island itself is a picture. Pearl white beach and super blue sea.
Day to remember
Demi O
Had the most beautiful day of my vacation in Curacao. Everything is top-notch in terms of food and drinks, Mermaid Boat trips also has its own private beach with enough shade for everyone that others don’t have. a few people got seasick on the boat, the staff did a super job guiding each one through this. During the boat trip we even saw dolphins very close up. Thank you all!
Well organized and friendly staff
Anton R
Booked a boat trip with Mermaid on the recommendation of friends and family. It turned out to be a good choice! You will be welcomed in the morning with a cup of coffee or tea, which is not an unnecessary luxury given the departure time of 06:45 ;). Then you sail in about 2 hours to Klein Curaçao. Wise to take a travel pill, though, because the sea can be a little rough at times. Once on the island you can relax and walk around, snorkel. You are completely free to go where you want. The big advantage of Mermaid is that you get there earlier and leave later, so you are on the island for a long time! Finally, I would like to mention that the staff was very friendly and helpful. On arrival we found out that our car battery was empty. No problem, because the men from Mermaid took care of it for a while! Incredibly friendly. Highly recommended and next time we will go with Mermaid again!
Highly recommended to go to Klein Curacao
Ilona W
