Comments Mike & Michele Day of Sunset Divers did an outstanding job. Their staff of Wade, Kristen and Carlos are knowledgeable divemasters. Always ready to guide divers to best locations on reefs or to allow you to dive own profile. New boats and tanks. Short rides to dive sites. Fresh fruit, water and iced tea on board each boat. Reefs in good shape. Saw spotted morays, lobster, scorpion fish, squid, turtles, parrotfish, seahorses, schooling chromis, barracuda, etc. We were traveling in a group and had boat to ourselves. Mike scheduled boat departures to fit our schedule. Did two tanks each morning and one night dive. Especially enjoyed Mushroom Forest and Harry’s Hole. Sloping walls allow divers to maximize bottom time over reefs.

Sunset Waters Resort offers all-inclusive plan that was excellent. Facility is clean, offers great beach with shore diving, good food throughout week. Jim Hunter, General Manager, did excellent job of coordinating our schedule requirements, i.e. food service with dive boat departures, etc. Delta has weekly non-stop flight from Atlanta each Saturday making Curacao an easy destination to reach.
