UW Photo Comments 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.

Comments 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 vacation.
