Comments This dive shop is for those who do not expect much service. Handle and set up your own gear, staff does the minimum if that. Boat pick up in current requires you to swim to the rope on a float, boat does not come to you, request fins off 10 feet from boat while holding a rope on a float with weight belt on. I asked and they agreed to take my weight belt and gear at the ladder. Only 45 minute surface interval between dives. Fist time in 26 years of divng I did not tip, just a lazy dive shop doing the minimum. This is my 4thr trip to Curacao, reoommend only dive the West end and forget the rest, over fished by locals.
