Super great! The whole experience was fantastic. I was picked up by a driver from the hotel, then we drove to the school camp at the beach away from the hotels past Eagle Beach, had a training for about 1.5hrs watching video tutor, and then a few dips in the ocean. We had some coffee and off to diving with a group of divers. Our instructor was very nice and everybody liked the way he was explaining everything and watching after us. I was in a group of six divers and for the most of us, it was the first time. Some were a bit scared at first, but then it was easy and relaxing dive. There is plenty of fish and corals, but we didn't get to see drawn plane of wrecks of a ship. I didn't want to get out from the ocean at the end and decided to try and go for a certification the next time I have a chance.
We were on the Crown Princess cruising the ABC islands and since we had dived before about 10years ago decided to do this in Aruba. We booked the afternoon trip and were surprised to be the only ones there.
Did the mandatory video then was fitted into wet suits fins masks and diving gear. Did an instructional in shallow water symbols, purge mask and retrieve and purge mouthpiece then met our captain and we were off to the dive site they did have bottled water for all. Alonso dived with the wife I dived with Aitzol one on one.
Purged on the way down we stayed in the 30/40 foot range say thousands of fish a wing of a crashed plane and later on a plane that was purposely sunk whole without the engines to create a reef.
We were very happy with our tour had a great time and felt well looked after would totally recommend this.
We were picked up right outside the customs gate and returned there.
Incredible experience! I had always wanted to scuba dive grew up on Jacques Cousteau, and this excursion allowed me and my daughter to experience scuba diving in one day. We saw a 20 minute video, practiced skills in shallow water, and then we were brought by boat to a reef diving area where we did a one tank approximately 40 minute open water dive. Our group was accompanied by 3 certified dive instructors who were with us every step of the way, and I never once felt unsafe. The undersea life was abundant, colorful, and incredible! The excursion allowed me to decide that scuba diving is something I would like to continue, and since being home, I have found a local scuba school at which I can become PADI certified. If you are curious about scuba, or if you want to do more than just snorkel, than this excursion is for you. Safe, fun, and the experience will last long after you get back to your hotel. A special thanks to Bart for giving my daughter his hair band!

Our 16 year old son went on the Discover Scuba Diving Course and it was his favorite thing. They were great about contacting us prior to the trip and letting us know about the pick up at the hotel and the staff. The company went above and beyond by returning our hotel towel which my son left behind on the van back to us the next day. Everyone was super nice!
