Can you provide a few more details? How many dives did you do? Did you rent gear? Any shore diving? What did you photograph? What was the visibility? What were your dive profiles? Would you do it again? Was the boat crowded? Do they provide Nitrox? Tell us more about the surge and Mantas you experienced as that is very unusual for Curacao.

5 dives, one being a shore dive. Rented BC/Reg/Shorty. Viz was great, photographed octupuses, lobster, sea horses,lots of lionfish, and many others. Dived Nitrox on the boat dives. Would dive with CSS again, boat not crowded. Briefly saw two mantas gliding by but too far to photograph. Superior Producer was good wreck dive. Other dives were onto healthy reefs. Surge was manageable during shallow parts of dives.
