Scuba Diving

The waters around Aruba are filled with dazzling marine life. Turtles, green and spotted moray eels, stingrays, yellow tail snappers and many more are waiting for a visit from you. The waters from 20 feet to 140 feet make it the perfect location for scuba diving. And don’t forget to see some of our many ship wrecks, like the famous Antilla.

Our friendly PADI dive instructors are waiting to guide you through the dive sites around the island or train you to be a licensed PADI diver. Unlike some other dive centers we are convinced of a personal approach towards our customers. We have a maximum of 6 divers per Dive Instructor. Thus making your dives a confident and intense experience. Contact us to join us with this exiting journey through the seas or check in for one of the PADI dive courses.
