Our visit was only for a week. The airport apparently has had a dramatic
upgrade (this per other guests we talked to since it was our first trip).
Sea Aquarium Resort is a very nice timeshare right on the water across a
marina from Lion's Dive Resort and Sea Encounters Dive Operations, they are
on the east end of the island. Sea Encounters has nice equipment (diving
and boats) but ask about prices up front. Got gouged on the unlimited shore
diving package since we only did about 6 shore dives (a mistake on our
part), we dove 4 days on the boat. On "check-out" shore dive,
without guide, was on local reef right outside the resort. We saw eagle
ray, LARGE school of bait fish (a ball about 20'+ across) with jacks
feeding off it and the usual critters (eels, tropicals, etc..). On the
night boat dive at Tugboat saw several lobsters, crabs and two frogfish on
a sponge (extra special!). GO TO KLIEN CURACAO!! It has great dive
locations, food was great but the trip is pretty long (about 2 hours each
way). Shore diving is very good and was best on the west end of island
(coral, critters, etc...). For the most part the distances to dive spots
were 50-100' off shore and you were in about 40-60' of water. Drop offs in
some locations were dramatic, couldn't see the bottom even at 80'. We'd go
back again!!
