Comments We have logged five weeks of diving with Go West over the last several years. We try (and enjoy) other dive venues, but keep coming back. My wife has progressed at Go West from doing her first open water dive to completing her Rescue Diver certification. In fact, we chose Go West for the Rescue Diver course because Go West is managed by Bryan Horne, who runs one of the most professional dive operations that we've used. Go West features divemasters who are friendly, engaged and competent. On this trip, we were especially pleased with Andreas, our Rescue Diver instructor. Having experienced some pretty "relaxed" PADI instructors, we wanted to work with an instructor who took us and the course seriously, while maintaining a sense of humor, and Andreas delivered! And, it didn't hurt that twice during breaks he led us on dives on the spectacular Go West house reef to see frogfish. Finally, please note that we wholeheartedly concur with the numerous other reviews touting the merits of diving the West end of Curacao.

Also, we enjoy the informality of All West Apartments and the locked room downstairs with tanks for 24/7 shore diving on its excellent house reef. And, All West illuminates its shoreline for easier night diving entry/exits.
