Excellent setup at dock, designated camera rinse regularly filled with
clean, fresh water. Boats also had designated camera rinse but the rinse
tub was too small for housed or mulitple strobe rigs.

House reef has deteriorated since last year but remains to be a very good
dive for a house reef. Some apparent upwelling during our trip affected
visibility. Reef very lively with courting sealife during our visit in late
July. Large green morays were the largest fish we saw. Saw cornetfish on 2
boat dives, many seahorses at a site called Harry's Hole. Most eels were
scarred or injured apparently due to fighting. Good macro. Many orange ball
corallimorphs visible on the house reef at a depth of 32' after 9pm.
Vehicles can no longer be rented at Habitat Curacao. Car renters will pick
you up at the resort and take you to the airport for car rental--way too
much hassle to be practical. Restaurant still slow with unremarkable food
although it has improved a little from the past. Shore diving facility
second to none. Friendly staff, beautiful resort. A great place to relax
and do some easy, productive diving.
