Ocean Encounters West is a top notch operation.  Dive masters are
experienced, knowledgeable of the dive sites, and friendly.  The operation
is extremely reliable.  I had some equipment service needs (on my
equipment, not theirs), which were addressed quickly, competently and
reasonably (some for "no charge").  The dock in front of the dive
operation makes shore diving easy, and the reef is outstanding.

The dive sites close to Westpunt are among the best of Curacao.  Our fellow
divers were relaxed, friedly, experienced (but not boastful), and very
helpful to my wife, a first time diver.  We enjoyed their company.

All West Apartments & Diving is highly recommended, particularly if you
want to avoid the over-priced resorts nearer Willemstad.  Access is very
easy for a shore dive at the resort's excellent house reef.  The beach is
lit all night long, which faciliates night dives.  The dive locker (stocked
with tanks) on the premises is a bonus.  Please see additional comments on
the All West website.
