How to Dive Watamula in Westpunt

The first question is always, “Can I dive at Watamula from shore?” The answer is yes, of course. However, there are very few – if any – accessible points from shore that would allow you to experience the best parts of Watamula safely.  But believe me when I say, divers try all the time.  Therefore, the question really should be: “Should I consider diving Watamula from shore?” The answer is no.

Honestly, the best way to experience Watamula is by boat.  The crew at GO WEST Diving is highly experienced and will be able to show you the very best sections of Watamula that are simply inaccessible by shore.  As mentioned above, the currents are unpredictable at this site which is why this is the number 1 boat dive on Curaçao – aside from Eastpoint of course.  So whether you start at the north or south mooring, Watamula is a mind-blowing experience that is a must dive during any scuba diving vacation in Curaçao.
