The dive shop is professional and clean and the staff are friendly and helpful. The parking lot is secure and dive equipment is in good condition. The house reef (Alice Wonderland) is amazing. It's easy to navigate with tons of special marine lives to discover. We spent 2 days here and saw different things at every dive. Highly recommended.

The location is great, they have everything you need to dive, a good dive store, and great dive masters. Pay atention to the clock: they are normally open daily from 08:00 to 17:00.

We dove with Gowest 4 days over New Years. Well run, professional dive op with staff that went out of their way to accommodate all our requests. Andreas and Ann-Marie were wonderful handling all our pre-trip communications and arrangements and taking care of all our needs during our visit. Would highly recommend.

We both enjoyed our dives and snorkeling with Go West ! Friendly staff - Captain Jack has some fun stories to tell of Curacao ! Cave snorkel was my first ! Just feel everyone needs to be reminded not to touch or stand on corals - saw some irreparable damage ..

Go West Diving has been the best company we've had the pleasure to dive with thus far! They had plenty of boats, plenty of well informed and helpful staff and boat captains. I can't say enough good things about the company except that they took us to some of the best spots and at the best times. They knew what... More

We used Go West for our diving trip to Curacao and we were mostly impressed with the great staff and convenience in Westpunt. Very good value for the money. The only criticism, and the only reason I can't give them 5-stars, is because they are not checking the air tanks they are putting on the dive boats. We ran into... More

I just spent a week in Westpunt combining shore dives and boat dives with Go West. The Dive shop provided us with unlimited Nitrox for a flat fee of around $100.00. I had 18 dives, others in my group had 20+. They have good analyzers and pressure checkers. Tanks were filled cool and always had a minimum of 3K PSI.... More

The best thing about this shop is location on playa Kaliki Tanks available for shore diving right off the dock even for night diving. Nothing really remarkable that warrants above average rating Otherwise people are friendly, and competently handled a diver who needed to buddy breathe.
