Wanted to put in a good word about Niels Jorissen and his outfit.  Niels
was very responsive; he was in phone contact the day we landed, and also
called repeatedly the next morning until he tracked us down when dive
conditions forced a change in launch location.  They dive west, north, and
south, going for more remote locations, although conditions kept us south. 
Uses a RIB, extremely (!) low key operation which for us was perfect-set up
your own gear, lots of stories and jokes, more like diving with friends
than a company.  Definitely appropriate for more advanced divers.  Boutique
operation-first day 6 divers, second day my boyfriend and I were the only
divers-awesome.  Although there is a lot of coral bleaching on Curacao, the
small fish life is varied and abundant, making it a step above most
standard Caribbean diving.  You'll pay a little more with Niels, but the
diving is very good to excellent, the day was a blast, everyone on the boat
is friendly, and the divers know what they are doing-a treat.
