Go West Diving in Westpunt generally does Watamula on a scheduled basis. I don't think they even pickup in Westpunt, never mind anyplace else. (Pretty much anyone staying out there will have rented a car to get there.) I don't know that anyone else does it, it's a long way from any other boat op.
Since about the 2nd day of our first stay on Curacao, we have always rented a car. Pretty useful there unless you're going to plant yourself and never leave your resort, which you really should. I'd suggest renting a car and spending the day in the area - do the 2 tank including Watamula in the morning, then a coiupe shore dives at their house reef which is Playa Kalki/Alice in Wonderland.
Thanks for the reply. I'll check out GO West. I think I went with them on the house reef there. I've been to Curacao a couple of times before and I stay in Lagun. I do just generally plant myself there and don't find much reason to leave. In the past I've just rented a car for a couple of days and find that plenty. That's enough to get into Willemstad and go to Centrum, check out Willibrodus and go to playa Knip for a day. I prefer to walk to the dive shop and then across the parking lot and into the water. A lot more relaxing than driving around the island especially in Willemstad. It looks like I'll tack on an extra day of the rental car to get out to Westpunt. Thanks.
Carib Sea Sports goes there once a week afaik. But won't pick you up either and they're at the Hilton in Piscadera Bay so it's closer to drive to Go West from Lagun. The Go West boats are at the Lodge KH shop, not the one at All West.
I'm not aware of a dive op that picks up other than the Dive Bus in the Willemstad area for shore dives.
Check with Trunk Divers - I once read about them diving Watamula from shore but it required a climb down. And probably a longer swim out.
