Excellent Facility & Dive Staff!
My Wife, her sister and husband and I stayed at the West Apartments and dived at Go West Diving for 10 days/9 days diving. Went in 2nd week of September. Weather was a bit warm but it never rained and winds were fine. The entire Go West Diving staff was very attentive and very professional. The boats and facility were clean, well maintained and equipped. Diving on the West end of Curacao was beautiful and less crowded than the busy East end of the island! The reefs were in good condition and the fish population was amazing to see. Any day we dived, we were the only dive boat in the area. No crowds!!
We did morning dives the entire 9 days on the boat and several afternoon boat dives. Shore diving in the afternoons and several twilight/night dives from shore both at the home reef at Go West (Alice in Wonderland) and at the reef just in front of West Apartments. Our boat captain Chris was always on his game! We had 3 different Divemasters/Guides on the boat throughout the 9 days. Floris (Handsome Bob), Loys and Jill. They all made the dives easy and enjoyable! All 3 were always attentive to all the divers and always had an eye towards the safety aspect of diving. Most dives were at or around 60 feet, but you were allowed to dive to the limit of your certification if you wanted. Not much in the way of larger critters on the reefs except for a large nurse shark that Jill found on our 1st day. By the way, ask Jill about her green moray eel encounter! Jill is a hoot!
West Apartments were definitely the best option in the area. The view from the apartments is beautiful and the sunsets are incredible!! Apartment was clean and everything was as advertised. We used the truck rental the entire stay and made a few trips back into Willemstad for groceries and to see the city. Prices in the stores are reasonable especially for being an island. Make sure you visit all the local small restaurants! Especially a little spot called Sol Food. David & Sunshine run a great little place right there in Sabana Westpunt near Go West Diving.

5 Stars! We’re definitely going back to Go West Diving the next time we get to Curacao!!

We completed our open water certification with Go West. Our instructor/dive master, Jill, was great, super patient and kind. She explained everything clearly and gave valuable information to help us enhance our dives and expand our dive knowledge.
I especially had a lot of anxiety and trepidation about scuba, but Jill was very calm and created a relaxed and comfortable learning environment. It helped that water is very warm and ocean is calm at playa Kalki, as well. Great conditions for beginners.
Everyone at the shop and other dive masters were very nice and helpful also. We went out on 3 boat dives, mostly drift dives. We are now scuba fans!

Wonderful crew. Modern boats with short rides between dive sites and shore. They provide both juice and water on shore with coffee at the dive shop. One of our group did a nitrox class while there. All EANx blended to 32-33%. They allowed divers to dive their own profile as long as submerge to surface was 60 mins. Great macro site. House reef is BEAUTIFUL... our group will be back.

We used Go West for four boat dives and rented their equipment for our own shore dives as well. They are a very professional shop and we always felt safe in their hands. Equipment rental was on the pricier side but the quality was excellent and the BCDs in particular were in excellent condition. Got some incredible photos and would definitely book with this PADI shop again
