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.
