Sunset Waters is a comfortable, laid-back all-inclusive resort in a very
quiet and secluded corner of Curacao.  Sunset Divers was a solid operation.
 The captain stays on the boat, the divemasters (usually two) lead the dive
and change the tanks.  Steve, Kurt, Seip, Rick (and others) were highly
competent guides and good fellows all. Dive your own profile if you wish
(first show them that you have the skills; beginners are well looked after
without being smothered).  Roll call done well. Intercepted a pod of about
12 dolphin one day and they jumped our wake for about 5 minutes (but swam
off when we tried to jump in with them) - fun for all.  Don't expect
pelagics, but count on world class coral and superb small (to 10")
tropical fish - some (eg. creole wrasse, brown chromis) in large schools
that sometimes number in the hundreds.  Not uncommon to see upwards of 50
royal gramma on one dive.  Lots of spotted drum, various wrasses,
butterflys, angels - the usual suspects. Excellent house reef - well marked
trail makes night diving easy.  Bring a good book - there isn't much going
on at the resort outside of the dive scene. I suggest that you rent a car
and cruise around the island when you're not in the water (safe, scenic,
and well worth doing; I took over 300 pictures).  In all a very good value,
and a great time was had by all.
