Comments One of the most personalized dive operations we have ever encountered. The staff, Anka, Carl, Carlos, Kevin, Lynn, and Rick all created a top notch dive experience for us. In this age of "cattle-boat" diving, this was a refreshing change. This is truly a genuine group of Divemasters looking to make your trip the best it can be. In only a week, we felt like we were now just leaving our friends, not going back home.
The staff will take of your gear and have you ready to enjoy your dive. All of our gear was promptly on the boat in the morning, ready for the dive before us. After 2 dives, 60 minutes max bottom dive, our gear was rinsed and stored. The divemasters switch out every couple days, so after a week you are able to enjoy different personalities and styles. (Have you ever been stuck on a boat for a week with a divemaster that you didn't like?) Access to the shop is available 24 hours and the shore diving is fantastic. The entry is easy and wheelbarrows are available for your gear if you wish. A resident frogfish is a great marker at 55ft. The dive boats are comfortable and have a dry area for clothes and towels. Try to plan your trip in the off season and you may have a private boat! The dive sites are varied, diverse, and a short boat ride from the resort. A different site was visited every day and the staff is willing to go where you would like if you are in search of a certain species. The fish life was good not great: turtles, eels, octopus, seahorses, stingrays, etc. Visibility was clear and most of the coral was in good shape. Camera services are available with a separate rinse tank and your digital film is available to be burned on a disk.
The resort is clean, comfortable and has a number of activities for your surface interval. A free shuttle takes you into town as well as organized tours to explore the history of Willemstad, sunset cruises, casino nights, and a visit to the ostrich farm. A pool bar, putt-putt golf course, pool table, and ping pong can all keep you occupied at the resort. The food was typical of an all-inclusive and lacked a little in variety. This was overcome after the Monday seafood festival with huge lobster tails and the Thursday barbecue party. A great place if you are looking for personalized service, great diving, clean, comfortable, and maybe making a couple new friends..
