What people are saying about Oranjestad

What a great adventure! very nice, understanding people :) slowly and thoroughly explained everything so even the greatest amateur can try their hand. Thetransport to pick you up from your hotel is very helpful. Everything is very professional, the instructor has a lot of experience so you can feel safe! We are very pleased. My girlfriend was scared before the start and after she said she definitely wants to do it again! Thank you team and recommend to everyone!

This is a great guide with lots of details about Aruba and its history. It took us to places we would never discover otherwise. It’s quite amazing how many different things can a small island fit. The self-paced drive-around type of experience worked for us extremely well. Total time from start to finish was about three hours. We stopped at some places to get from the car to explore more. The app was easy to use, too.

Juan and his wife are very nice. I did learn the basics and had a nice dive on the beach, but did not see anything interesting and very few fish. I did not receive a full 4 hours. For the price of this, it was definitely not worth it. The total time spent for pickup, training video, dive, and drop off was 2.5 hours. I recommend you shop around to be sure you get your money's worth.

great ! definitely recommended. instructors are experienced and calm. initiation was in a small group of 2 people.
