Returned to Westpunt after three years and found the same welcoming staff and well maintained equipment. One of the best dive ops on the island and the best way to see reefs and caves from their boat on the West side of Curaçao. Can recommend their services and staff to any new certified and experienced divers at any time.

Great place to rent tanks and do some shore diving. The cost of rental tanks allows you use of rinse buckets, freshwater shower, restrooms, and lockers. Additionally at times there was guard on duty watching customer cars.

I didn't actually dive with these guys but frequented the dive shop while on our vacation. They were extremely helpful with advice on where to dive and snorkel. They are located right on Alice in wonderland and the kura hulanda resort. This made for a very nice night dive and cheap equipment rental.

we actually traveled in Oct 2012, but scuba diving was our main reason for choosing Curacao to visit and GO WEST diving great! About a 5 minute drive from where we stayed at Marazul Dive Resort, we did a fantastic shore dive over Alice in Wonderland and two boat dives. These were our first dives in an ocean after being...

My husband, 10-year-old daughter, and I rented a car during our 1st visit to Curacao, ending up at Go West Diving for what we hoped would be a fun day underwater. Not disappointed! Go West Diving is hidden at Playa Kalki Beach, and definitely worth a visit. Staff were extremely kind, helpful, etc. Our dives were done off the pier... More

One of my favorite dive sites on island. The people and facilities at this location were really incredible. Very helpful and very knowledgeable. Safe place to park no problems, we left nothing of value in car with doors unlocked and windows rolled down....would highly recommend.

He is also a great master diver to have for a boat dive. He is pointing out many treasures along the way and also very helpful with safety of the divers. Brian was... More
