We are avid divers with many years experience and we went to Curacao just to dive. Stayed at the Marriott because it was a known quantity and were thrilled to find this Dive Shop on site.
First of all, the shop is very conveniently located, but the best part was the people and the way they ran the operation. Andrea made us feel welcome even before we got there, helping us make arrangements via email. Once we arrived, Tom gave us a personal tour showing us how all of the equipment was maintained to the highest standards (air compressors, etc.) which made us feel extremely comfortable about safety as their number one priority. In addition to Tom, Andy, Capt. Erik and Juanito (not Emilio - inside joke!) all made us feel completely at home. The boat was in great condition, the prices were reasonable, and while we had a lot of fun, they were a very professional dive operation. Mariana was a wonderful UW photographer and we loved the pictures we got from her, even though we had our own UW photography equipment (still and video cameras). She even gave us a few pointers and used our still camera to take a picture for us!
While many dive operations are concerned about making money, we never felt that was the priority here - their goal was to ensure we had a wonderful time diving their beautiful island, and making us feel so at home that we'd want to come back. And they succeeded! We had one of the best dive trips ever; the reefs were healthy and beautiful, teeming with many different varieties of beautiful fish, and as we said before, the people were phenomenal at making the experience enjoyable.
In addition to the Dive Shop folks, the other divers we met on the trip were great too and we're planning to keep in touch and exchange pictures and video of our trip.
We can strongly recommend Curacao as a vacation spot and Caribbean Sea Sports as the best Dive Shop there!
