Comments Diving in Curacao is good. Reefs in the NW part of the island are in good shape, lots of small fish. Very few big fish, because the island is heavily fished.

All West is a good operation with a helpful owner. With a couple exceptions, most of the dives you do with a boat could be done as shore dives, which gives you more flexibility and time, especially if you are an advanced diver. All West's divemasters did not brief extensively before the dives, and did not warn divers against touching coral (which many did constantly). The house reef in front of Go West (Alice in Wonderland) is terrific, and the reef in front of All West Apartments is also great. Much of the shore diving here is really good.
