I know other people have said they have had troubles emailing Irie, but I always got a fairly quick response.
I can tell you that there are lots of twists and turns, and construction, on the roads and they are not clearly marked. If you rent a car keep this in mind.

I would not recommend driving yourself. Some of the beaches are off the beaten path..

We arrive at 8 am and leave at 9 pm. Don't know exactly when tour starts. I am thinking maybe 10 but don't quote me.

There is supposedly one other ship in port with us.

We arrive at 10am and leave at 10pm. I wonder if we are the other ship in port with you? I will be on Vision of the Seas and in Curacao November 10th.

Looks like the Riffort is a little bit past the pontoon bridge (Queen Emma) near the traffic circle at the end of Pater Euwensweg .
Look at the map on their site. Irietours.com/our_location.html

When you debark at the Mega Pier, all foot traffic will be directed to the Riffort Village. You just alk through the fort and when you exit you will see the Irie office on your left hand (across the street). Can't miss it.

If you ship happens to dock "inside" the canal, you just ask anyone at the dock to direct you to the Riffort Village. VERY easy to find Irie.
