Introductory Diving in Aruba

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
Learn to dive in just one day! This course is perfect for the adventurer who wants to try scuba diving for the first time. It's also ideal for those who would like to go diving, yet don’t have the time for a full certification. The diving trip includes class instruction, pool session and an open water dive.
  • Intro scuba course lets you learn a new skill on vacation
  • All equipment and instruction provided, no experience necessary
  • Course sets you up for diving the rest of the time you're in Aruba
  • Discover the underwater world and species around Aruba
What to Expect
When you're in Aruba, spend half a day learning to scuba dive so you can get out in the water as quickly as possible. Book ahead and plan your course for the beginning of your stay, and then spend the rest of your time on the island mastering your skills and going on additional dives. 
This course includes a classroom and pool instruction phase, which teaches you the basic rules for scuba diving and how to use the equipment. Next, it's on to the boat, which has twin ladders for easy access off the dive platform. Do a 1-tank open water dive to start you off. The dive boat goes to a shallow reef or wreck and an instructor will accompany you at all times underwater. All equipment is included.
