in relation to COVID-19

Don't stop dreaming about your next Dolphin Assisted Therapy!

The CDTC acknowledges the uncertainty regarding the COVID-19-pandemic. We are doing our upmost to inform you, guarantee your safety and offer you the maximum flexibility.

Coronavirus on Curaçao

Information about the current situation and number on Curaçao can be found on the website of the government of Curaçao, click here to visit the website. This is also where you will find a list of all necessary documents for traveling to Curaçao.

The measure of wearing a mouth mask in public transport, supermarkets and shops and some closed spaces remains mandatory for people over 18 years of age.

When you cannot fly
The CDTC must adhere to its regular cancellation policy for the period in which travelling to Curaçao is possible. Travel warnings are not eligible as exceptions.

An exception is made in the following situations:

  • Border closures;
  • Travel bans;
  • If the therapy child, one of her/his siblings or the parent is tested positive for Coronavirus 2 to 3 days before arrival.

In these cases, there are measures imposed by the national or international authorities. We ask you to send us a copy of a written document confirming one of the above situations. We will then provide you with the option to rebook your therapy free of charge to the new period within 12 months of the canceled therapy period.

In all other cases, if you cancel a confirmed reservation, the $1,000 deposit will be charged and will be forfeited. Cancellation of a confirmed reservation within 90 days before the start of therapy is only possible on medical grounds (the doctor’s statement must be included in the cancellation). The payment already made for the therapy minus the deposit will be transferred to a subsequent therapy period. If no doctor’s statement can be submitted, all payments already made will expire.

We look forward to welcoming you to your reserved dolphin assisted therapy program.

With warm regards,

Management
Curaçao Dolphin Therapy & Research Center.

"He asked me if I had an idea what heaven looked like, and envisioned what life would be as an angel. He was dead serious. On the first day of dolphin aid therapy these thoughts were just gone and replaced by 'yes' to life. For all of us." 🐬❤️ (Annette Lindner, quote from the book 'Delphintherapie - Beweis eines Wunders) by Kirsten Kuhnert
