Come and see the world from a different perspective on the Aruba Discover Scuba Beginner Dive Excursion. There is a lot going on under the water.

You'll meet outside your Aruba cruise ship terminal and be driven about 10 minutes to the dive shop. In order to prepare for your first dive, you'll spend about 20 minutes in a theory class to learn about the techniques of diving and the equipment you'll be using. To dive safely under the water you need to understand the effects of pressure, how the dive gear works, the hand signals you'll need to use, and more.

Next, you'll put on your dive equipment and spend some time in waist-deep water practicing breathing, clearing your ears, and other vital skills. Once you're ready the instructors will take you to your dive.  The dives will be either shore or boat entry depending on the weather conditions that day. You'll dive with a maximum of 4 guests for each instructor and it will be a shallow dive of no more than 40 feet. The tank will last about 45 minutes depending on your breathing. It's now time to enjoy the coral reef and abundant marine life.

Rest assured that you will be well taken care of as safety is the number 1 priority. The expert PADI instructors take all the necessary steps to make sure everyone is safe, comfortable, and having a great experience. They will be with you at all times from start to finish.

After your dive, you can choose to enjoy the pier at the dive shop or ask to be dropped off at Surfside Beach. This popular beach has restaurants, bars, quiet surf, and a playground for families. Enjoy some good food, drinks, or the beach and it's just a 15-minute walk back to your Aruba cruise ship. Please note that food and drinks at the beach are not included in the price and if you choose to stay at the beach, the return to the cruise terminal is at your own expense and responsibility.

Once you try this beginner dive in Aruba, you'll be ready to explore more of the underwater world and its mysteries.

SCUBA is something I've wanted to try my whole life. I thought this would be the perfect way to find out if I was equipped to handle it before trying to get certified. Best decision I've ever made! Our driver picked us up right outside the terminal, and it was just a short ride to a beautiful spot where we met our other instructor. It was just the 2 of them, myself, my daughter and her best friend, so we had an entirely private experience. After our safety instructions and competencies, we explored a gorgeous reef! We saw moray eels, tons of colorful fish, coral, sea urchins, even a baby shark! I cannot recommend this trip enough for anyone with a sense of adventure. We felt 100% safe and secure the whole time, as our guides were literally holding our hands throughout. I am on my way back to Aruba next week, and am booking this again.

Great intro to SCUBA. Me and my 15 y/o loved it. My wife found out it was not for her so no need to invest in going further when we got home.

Our guides were exceptional at explaining the basic skills we needed for our first dive. They were very patient and gave each one of us in the group individual attention when needed. This experience made me want to get my scuba diving certification.

After inquiring about getting certified, but not ready to commit, I was excited to find out about this excursion. I was in Aruba for a cruise and found the time allotted for the dive to be more than enough. The instructors were very helpful and informative. The dive was fun and it was enough time to enjoy the water! I can't wait to be get certified!

We took a cruise to Aruba last month and decided NOT to book excursions with the ship to save money. Their prices have become ridiculously high! We saw this website, read the good reviews about them and booked everything through them. I have always been the non-diver in our vacation group and I decided that I was finally going to give it a try this time. I love how I was able to just reserve my spot and they were waiting for me when I arrived. My instructor was wonderful and opened a whole new world for me. Doing this has motivated me to get certification. The rest of my group booked the snorkeling and we all met up after our tours and hung out on the beach together. Great company to book your excursions with especially if you want to save money! We all will definitely book with you again for our next cruise...love that you have tours in other ports.
