Staff were helpful and their supplies were always stocked. We rented fins and other things from them. They do diving and snorkeling tours and the staff was knowledgeable about the local wildlife, for sure.

Hi Guys,
I should like to thank you all for making my diving holiday on Curacao so very enjoyable, as my first visit to the island I was insure what to expect, but the warm, clear and calm waters of the 22 boat dive sites that I dived with you were everything I had hoped for in the Caribbean.
I particularly appreciated the fact that at no time was the boat overcrowded with divers, and underwater, because of the excellent visibility, divers were able to spread out behind the dive guide without bunching up but remaining in clear view.
All the guides that I dived with were very professional, from giving the pre-dive boat and dive-site briefing, through to making sure that every diver was correctly equipped and helping them to the stern of the boat and into the water before themselves leaving the boat.
Every dive that I made with you was a gentle ‘drift’ dive, all very relaxing, with no concerns about getting back to the boat before the 60 min dive time is up.
Overall, I found that the service provided by Go West Diving to be excellent, from the Reception staff, boat support crew (‘brake-brake’) to the dive guides, I have no hesitation in recommending you all to any diver visiting Curacao.
Many thanks and regards, Tony
(or as Jill would shout out at roll-call, ‘Hey You’)

Background: Zero diving experience looking to get scuba certified open water from an affordable and quality dive shop with easily accessible reefs.

Go West Diving was a GREAT decision. Coming to get scuba certified at Go West was the best scenario possible probably anywhere in the Caribbean and way better than any options back in the States.

The staff was very friendly and made it very clear for the schedule it was going to take to get scuba certified and they were very accommodating with everything I could have possibly needed.

My American dive instructor Jill was incredibly patience and made the entire certification with Go West worth it. Her instruction was clear and I felt very comfortable diving for the first time with her leading the lessons. I could not have imagined a better dive instructor, one of Go West's best! After I was certified, she convinced me to go on boat dives with Go West and the experience was FANTASTIC. There were great diversity in the different dive sites and with Jill as the dive master, everyone had a super fun time.

I had such a great experience, I'll be sure to come back thanks to the great memories with an incredible dive master and diving the beautiful reefs!

Our trip to Go West Diving in September was our first of many trips to come in Curacao. My husband, sister, brother in law and I stayed at All West Apartments for 10 days and dove with Go West for 9 days, including 2-tank morning boat dives and a couple of afternoon boat dives. We also went on afternoon, twilight, and night dives from the Go West dock and explored “Alice in Wonderland”, the house reef. Lots of turtles in the area! All of the dive sites were beautiful. One of our favorite sites was Watamula with a big variety of hard and soft corals. All of the staff, crew and Divemasters were very friendly, professional and welcoming. Our DM’s were Jill, Loys and Floris, with Captain Chris at the helm. DM Jill was with us most of the days. Nurse sharks are not very common to the area, but Jill pointed one out to us on our first day of diving! Throughout our dives, Jill also pointed out other favorites of mine: Flamingo Tongues and “sweet pea” Spotted Trunkfish! She was on point at finding things! After diving, clean-up was a breeze. Large rinse tanks were full of clean water to dunk gear, and a convenient outdoor shower for us to rinse off. The facility was nice and very clean with a well stocked dive shop. Looking forward to our next trip to Go West Diving!

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!!
