We have been to Captains Don's in Bonaire, but this was our first trip to
Habitat Curacao. Like Captain Don's, Habitat Curacao has the same
"Diver Freedom" attitude and tanks are available 24/7.  The staff
at Easy Divers the Habitat dive operation, are excellent, friendly,
knowledgeable and helpful on and off the boat.  Habitat and Easy Divers is
located along the southwest coast which appears to be where the best boat
and shore diving is located.  Most of our dive gear did not arrive the
first day and Anne Marie the owner of Easy Divers, loaned us what we needed
at no charge to make our first day dives.  Luckily the rest of our
equipment arrived the next day.   
The famous floating bridge has been dismantled for maintenance and ferry
service is the only way to access both sides of the Harbor.  English is
widely spoken and understood.  The house reef is
beautiful and like Capt. Don's, there is the guide rope from the dock on
down to the reef. I would rate the house reef slightly better than Captain
Don's and has beautiful coral which are swarming with small & medium
tropicals. Night diving is fantastic, but unlike Captain Don's, there are
no tarpon following your light. Habitat's rooms are clean and comfotable
and have AC. Our ocean front room was getting some what frayed around the
edges, but in general no complaints.  The restaurant has good food and
drinks and although "Island Time" rules when it comes to service,
in general it was no big deal. Get a car and explore. Jannchie's, a local
family run operation out in Westpunt is fantastic and definitely the place
to eat.  In general Williamstead is just another cruse ship trap full of
trash, but is worth at least an afternoon to view the architecture.
Christoffel National Park at the northwest tip could easily take up 2 more
afternoons with hiking and exploring. The locals we met were all friendly
and we did not feel threatened at all during our stay.
American Airlines runs a daily flight out of Miami.
