We honeymooned in Aruba two weeks ago and our Hotel recommended Unique. Bart came to the hotel pool for the free intro to SCUBA and my wife was hooked. Surprising because she isn't the first person I would've guessed would enjoy SCUBA, but I've always wanted to try it so we walked down to the shop that afternoon for the... More

The people at Unique Sports are a great bunch of people to dive with. They take care of you and make sure your trip is an enjoyable one. Did a night dive and saw 4 turtles, an arrow crab and a giant green moray in a pipe.

Conveniently located at the end of the hotel property on the beach, Unique Sports is a 5Star PADI certified and National Geographic Dive Operator. No cattle boat operation here...very knowledgeable, courteous and friendly staff take very good care of you. We did 3 dives... More

Unique Sports came to our hotel a couple of times a week to let people try Snuba/Scuba in the pool. We tried snuba on Tuesday, and decided to book a snuba trip for later on in the week. Bart was our dive instructor. He was very knowledgeable and fun, and made us feel very comfortable on the trip. We saw... More

Went out on a snuba excursion. I was nervous at first but Bart (our dive instructor) assured me that I would be fine. We went out pretty far and saw the most beautiful views of the water life. The coral and fish were beautiful and we stayed under for 44 minutes and got to have the experience of a lifetime.... More

I researched the different dive centres in Aruba before our recent trip there, as I was wanting to do my PADI open water. While *slightly* more expensive than the cheapest centre, the staff were much more helpful on initial contact and they had a much larger and more flexible schedule, which also meant my boyfriend who was doing casual and...

I have just returned from 2 weeks in Aruba & dived 7 times with USA. The shop staff, boat staff & dive instructors are all first class & very knowledgeable. The equipment supplied was good quality & the regs were nearly new. Would use again & recommend to all :)

I got my PADI Open Water Certification from Unique Sports of Aruba in 2008 and have done 25+ dives. Their Dive Masters and Instructors are super helpful, professional, AND they all have infectiously positive personalities! They limit their dives to 8-10 people with 2-3 Dive Masters/Instructors, so they can take the time to care about each diver on the boat.... More

Giving a shout out to this dive shop. Super convenient on the Radisson property, but more importantly these guys are the perfect mix of really fun to hang out with on your adventure but no sacrifice on safety. I am so glad they made me do a refresher pool session, but only the amount that I needed and no more.... More
