Curaçao has so much more to offer than only idyllic beaches, for instance fishing. That’s why we have teamed up with local entrepreneurs and decided to try to get Jim to come explore the Curaçao waters, in which we succeeded’, explains Marcel Verspuij of Caribbean Nautical. “Most of us are fanatic fishers”, says Eugene Thomas of Beyond Kitchen & Bath, ’And watching Jim’s show on television you can’t help getting excited to explore new fishing destinations and hence we thought this would serve Curaçao well’, ends Thomas. The team quickly found other enthusiastic sponsors such as InselAir to get the team from Miami to Curaçao and many other sponsors to make Jim’s stay on Curaçao memorable. This event is a great example of local people and companies working together to create extra PR and exposure for Curaçao abroad.
