“Very Nice”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

GoWest had very knowledgeable, helpful and friendly staff members, and nice equipment. We did three boat dives with them and a dive on their house reef, all beautiful and probably some of the best on Curacao. I will definitely check them out again the next time I visit.

“Great diving operation! Nice fast boats, great dive masters, boat captains and owner of shop!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 1, 2013

We spent a week diving with the Go West team of diving professionals. Go West has great fast boats,to get you to the dive sites which are all located on that end of Curacao. All of the dive sites are beautiful and not too deep, our dives averaged almost 1 hour per dive. And most were slow drift dives, my favorite way to dive. Safety is the number one concern. The way the shop is laid out nicely so it is very easy to rinse equipment after diving. The shop is located on a great house reef that offered a great afternoon shore dive. Thank you Bryan and staff for a great trip. We will be back! Good luck Eric in your future plans, it was good to get to know you.

“Best of the West”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013

We love diving with GoWest. The staff is always friendly and helpful. They are located at Playa Kalki. You can either dive from their dock or one of their boats. They also rent tanks and gear that you can take to any of the many other fantastic shore dive locations. Thank you Go West for always making us feel like we're home.

“Awesome operation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

We used this dive shop as a part of our package at All West Apartments and did one day of diving with them as well. Mushroom forest was fantastic and we loved Brian. Beware; there is no toilet on their boat :) Their house reef Alice in Wonderland is one of the best in Curacao. You can lock your gear in a locker, purchase a cool t shirt. Ask them about the dive and drive map. Best thing!

“Great place to go Scuba Diving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

My partner got certified here and we did some diving together when an instructor.

Everybody was very friendly and knowledgeable. Safety is a big concern too which was very nice to see.

I highly recommend going out of the establishment for a dive.

We did Evan's Plan wreck which was great. Lots of beautiful coral.

I would go back if I come back to Curacao.
