Aruba Watersports Center

Aruba Bound
A few years back during one of our stays at the Radisson Aruba, we took our dd on a Discover Scuba dive, Scuba and the 10 year old, through Aruba Watersports Center. She was immediately enthralled with the sport. When we began our research to obtain her certification, we were looking for a similar type of experience with personalized service and one on one tutoring.

After doing a large amount of online research and communicating online with Aruba Watersports, we decided to reserve the Open Water Certification class with them. They were very prompt and professional in their emails and I was confident that it would be a good experience.

Extraordinary Sights At Aruba Dive Sites

Aruba Bound
Despite its close proximity of just 18 miles from Venezuela, the 6 miles wide and 20 miles long island of Aruba is an idyllic location and is renowned throughout the Caribbean for its wonderful beaches, turquoise waters and magnificent water sport opportunities. Under the control of the Dutch for nearly 400 years, tourism now plays a huge part in its economy and whilst sailing and snorkeling are very popular, without doubt when it comes to water based activities in Aruba diving is by far the biggest draw, and brings people from all corners of the world to explore the incredible waters that lie off shore.

Set your sites on diving in Aruba

Aruba Bound
The diminutive southern Caribbean island of Aruba, lying less than 20 miles from mainland South America, attracts over half a million tourists from far and wide, each year. Some come for the luxury accommodation, gorgeous beaches and guaranteed good weather, but huge numbers are drawn to this little piece of paradise by the excellent snorkeling, and more significantly, the fabulous diving opportunities, it presents. There are over 40 Aruba diving sites, the majority situated off the sheltered south western coast and the many local dive operators have developed a smooth and professional operation to allow visitors a truly memorable experience.

Shore Dives & Snorkeling With Kids

JADS Dive Center offers shore dives or rent tanks from Aqua Windies. Aqua Windies does rent tanks.

Using, Aruba as a reference, below are some of my thoughts.

Bachelors Beach, Boca Grandi & Boca Andicuri are only divable on a few days of the year when there is no wind. If there is no wind, which is extremely rare, there is all likelihood there will still be waves. They are on the windward side of the island and open to the entire Caribbean with no coral reef or barrier islands to speak of for protection.
