We took a PADI dive refresher course here and it was great. Stephanie was our instructor and she was kind, patient and thorough. Highly recommend her. When we asked questions about other dive sites another instructor Andreas was arrogant and not helpful. The lady who works the dive shop is not knowledgeable or helpful so you must wait for a...

We stayed at the Kura Hulanda, the dive shop is a 4 minute walk from our room. Excellent operation with an equally great dive shop fully stocked. We did not rent gear but it looked fairly new in great condition. We did the all day air for first day as suggested by one of the staff after informing her my... More

The dive masters were really nice but the second day the boat was really crowded. We felt really rushed getting in the water. Dive sites were nice. No bathroom available on the boat but they stop between dives and let you jump in the water to go to the bathroom. A boat that size should have a bathroom. On our... More

We scubadived for a week. There was not much enthusiasm from the staff and only few smiles, good mornings or how were your dives? Some of the staff seemed surprised that We did more than a coupeer of dives a day and nitrox tanks had to be carried up and Down long step stairs. The House reef was excellent and... More

I have been to Westpunt 3 times and have used Go West for my tank rentals and boat dives. The Dive masters are professional and know the dive sites well. My first two trips I brought all of own gear. I rented gear the third trip and just went out on a couple of boat dives. Though the dive shop... More

We came back to dive several days , just from their pier to the reef and it was an amazing diving experience. Gorgeous place, easy diving for beginners, great instructors and deep diving or night dive for adventurous people.

Took a snorkel trip to Blue Room Cave and a sunken ship. Both very fun spots we wouldn't have seen from shore snorkeling. They said we'd get to snorkel with turtles, but we only got to see them from the boat. Rented a kayak for $15/hr, which was very fun to go to Grande Kanip.

Recommend to us from the B&B we're staying at. We emailed in somewhat last minute to see if we could join Wednesday's snorkel trip. Response was quick and informative. Great start! When we got there, the staff were very helpful and friendly. Especially on the boat, with Daniel and Captain Roy. Gorgeous views along the coast as you make your... More
