Scuba Diving in Dutch Antilles

The Netherlands Antilles consist of two group of islands,  that while belonging to Holland administratively speaking, each island has its own local government.

The two island groups of which the Netherlands Antilles consists are:

- the "Leeward Islands": along with Aruba, they create the ABC islands: Bonaire and Curaçao.
         
- the "Windward Islands", composed of Saba, Saint Eustatius and Saint Maarten  (only the southern half of the island Saint Martin, as the northern half, Saint-Martin, is an overseas collectivity of France).

The island of Aruba  was part of the Netherlands Antilles until 1986, when it was granted status aparte, becoming yet another part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands as a separate country within the kingdom.

In 2004, a commission of the governments of the Netherlands Antilles and the Netherlands reported on a future status for the Netherlands Antilles. The commission advised a revision of the Statute of the Kingdom of the Netherlands in order to dissolve the Netherlands Antilles.

The Netherlands Antilles are scheduled to be dissolved as a unified political entity on 10 October 2010, so that the five constituent islands will each attain a new constitutional status within the Kingdom of the Netherlands.
