Dive boats had large camera rinse tanks.  Dive staff was very helpful in
handling equipment.  No large stuff to photograph but excellent small
critters, including frog fish, sea horses, occtopus, eels, lobster.  Some
of the swims on the shore dives made lugging bulky camera gear a little
difficult, but well worth the effort.

Sunset Waters Beach Resort was an excellent small resort, with a staff that
is truly interested in making your stay the best possible.  Jim Hunter, the
resort manager, goes out of his way to accommodate any special requests the
guests may have, and he seems to have all the staff thinking the same way. 
If you don't get what you want, just ask and the staff will make it happen.
 The accommodations and food were outstanding along with the excellent
service.  Sunset Waters has one of the nicest beaches on the island with
lots of activities for the non-divers and kids.  Easy Divers was very
flexible in their dive schedule.  The typical one-tank morning dive and
one-tank afternoon dive was modified to two-tank morning or two-tank
afternoon dives at the request of the majority of the divers.  This left
half a day free for other activities, such as shore diving, sightseeing,
shopping or just relaxing in the beach.  One problem was that Easy Divers
would have to shuffle boats back and forth to Habitat, since they also run
the dive operation there.  So we had to modify our schedule on a couple
days, or switch to another boat.  But this was only an minor inconvenience.
 The dive staff at Easy Divers was very competent, friendly and
knowledgeable of the dive sites.  Tookie was our divemaster for the entire
week and he knew where to find all the good stuff, like frog fish and sea
horses.  Tookie has been diving Curacao waters for 25 years, so he has lots
of stories to tell.  The diving on the northwest end of the island is
outstanding, so it puts Sunset Waters in an ideal location for the best
diving with relatively short boat rides.  The distance from town was not
really a problem since we had a rental car for the week so we had easy
transportation.  One trip into Williamstad convinced us that we had picked
the right resort compared to some of the alternatives close to, or in town.
 On the northwest end there are several excellent shore dives, with very
short swims to the drop-off.  The reef right in front of the Sunset Waters
resort was a great shore dive and and excellent night dive.  This
combination of Sunset Waters and Easy Divers made for an outstanding dive
