It was right around the corner from La Quinta, where we were staying, so we figured we'd check it out first.
We just went in to rent a couple of tanks and content ourselves with some shore diving, but we talked to the owners and felt so comfortable I signed up to finish Part B of my certification with them.
Other diving shops I had contacted by email before the trip wouldn't let my companion come on the dive which would have meant that he'd be sitting around while I went diving, but they had no problem with it. I was really glad I did! They set me up with Roshendra, a very calm, competent, serious and clear instructor who managed to make a very scary thing seem entirely possible.
We ended up diving every day possible with the crew and seeing what we could. Aqua Windies was very safe, but we also got to have fun and do sightseeing on the certification dives. I loved the boat ride, the crew, everything. We were diving with others who came year after year.
After one dive we did eat at the restaurant, Reef and Beef, and it was the first reasonably-priced good meal we had in Aruba.
