    back to Curacao

    just booked a trip back to Curacao for spring. got a really good deal using hotel points and airline discounts.

    man I don't know why but I just love that place.

    now all I have to do is figure out what dives I want to do.

    go back to the ones I did last year or try something new?

    Have a great time. It took us a trip to figure out the diving. Now, we are ready to return.

    i was going to divide my dives between Ocean Encounters West and THe Dive Bus but it looks like the Dive bus will be in Bonaire that week so can anyone suggest a dive shop on the east end of the island?

    If you have a car I can really recommend the shop on Playa Laguna there a great bunch.

    I just booked my tickets for 12/27-01/08/13 a long way away but I wanted to use miles for my tickets and the pickings were getting slim

    I am going to do half on Curacao and get a puddle jump to Bonaire for the other half

    There were also turtles at Playa Lagun.

    And in the shallows (6') at Varsenbaii to the east. The operator said they're always there - they feed on the grass. I was kicking back in when one popped up next to me. If you dive Varsenbaii go east at about 80' and you'll find the wreck of the pontoon boat used to ferry in the cars dropped on the Carpile site. It's a flat wreck but there's lots of stuff underneath it now. When we were there a pair of seahorses lived 1M up the wall from the mooring ball at 40' - the onsite operator told us how to find them.

    Watamula is the one dive we missed that I really wanted to do. A friend's wife used to guide there, she said it's one of the best. Also Snake Bay - they often see dolphins there.

    OEWest now calls themselves Go West Diving. Still seems to be owned by Ocean Encounters. I've heard good things about Atlantis but have no experience with them. They have a trip to Klein also.

    When I was there a couple of months ago, the story was that they had been part owned by Ocean Encounters but the Go West owner had just bought the remainder of the company from them. So they're no longer owned by Ocean Encounters but it's taking some time to switch over all of the branding.
