As a family of Scuba divers and watersport lovers, we were looking for somewhere to cater for all of our needs. Our son is 13 and is a Padi Junior open water diver, therefore we wanted a recommended Dive centre to take our needs seriously, regarding safety and no pressure. Before we arrived in Aruba, we checked reviews of certain dive centres and were quite undecided.
We proceeded to go with Aruba Watersports centre, a few minutes walk from our hotel on Palm beach. Marika was very professional and set a very good example to the company.
We booked a few dives, to start with, and were so impressed with the RIB boat catering just for us and another diver, 4 of us in total with the Dive Master or Instructor. It was a very quick trip to the dive site, of which we could choose, and to the ability of our sons limits.
It was an easy and relaxed entry into the water and also getting back on the boat. Thoroughout the dives, there was no rushing, all equipment checked before going in and the Dive master and Instructor kept an eye on us all the time.
The Dive master / Instructor pointed out the fantastic marine life, finding sea horses, eels stonefish to name a few and in total my son did 3 dives with so much confidence and is now wanting to do more!! We enjoyed 3 wrecks, Pedernales, Antilla and Debbie ll. As well as the reefs.
I then went on my own with another diver and we did a deeper dive, I was looked after so well, being a Master Scuba Diver, I have seen a few dive centres and dived around the world, but I was so impressed with these guys that I have to recommend them. My husband and son also agreed with me. (You want the best when you dive with your son who's only done 7 dives!)
Many thanks to Our Instructor Steve and Ricardo our Dive Master. You made our diving very enjoyable safe and we can't wait to return!!
Also thank you to Nelson who took our son sailing on the hobie cat and wave runners (jet skiing).
Nelson was a great instructor, who gave our son some tips, quite different to the toppers he sails.
We look forward to seeing you all again in the near future.
