The actual dive was really good. But most things around it was pretty horrible. We did a refresh-dive with a girl that was really good. But then we went on a boat with a instructor we have not even met, we did not get fully equipped.. well.. i would reccomend finding another place unless you are an experienced diver.

Horrible dive center, too large group and truly unprofessional and unengaged staff. We got recommended to dive with Unique Sports by our hotel, and the first day they cancelled our dive (not by calling as a normal company would do, they waited until we got to their shop to tell us). However, they booked us in the next day into... More

Being newly qualified over here in the cold british waters there was no way I was missing a dip in the sea in Aruba. My tour guide arranged this 2 tank AM dive for me. Everyone at the centre seemed to be a PADI & as a BSAC diver & the new non American diver I stuck out like a... More

I've been training/diving at Unique Sports to get my Emergency First Response and PADI rescue diver certifications. I had a good experience with my instructor Merril, who made clear from the first minute that these two certifications are no joke and he made me work hard to achieve them. After my certifications I also dove twice with the other instructor,... More

We we're only in Aruba for a week and our hotel recommended this dive company, we booked and after getting up early and waiting to be picked up no one turned up and when we called they said we had been booked in for the wrong day. Then when we did go we weren't allowed to dive as we'd been... More

I am a certified diver but have not been out diving in years so I took the intro class with my GF that had never done this before. The staff and especially our young instructor was extremely professional. After the overview and pool lesson we moved on to the boat. Within 5 minutes we were at the dive spot (... More

We finished our Advanced SCUBA certification. Staff was friendly and helpful. We saw more fish than we've ever seen on a dive. We went on 4 excellent dives.

Very professional and fun crew to have your parasailing experience with. I am afraid of heights but wanted to give it a try and they put me at ease and made the whole thing very enjoyable. You are up in the air for about 12 minutes and when you come down they have a boat waiting to take you back... More

Unique Sports is my go-to for diving in Aruba. The staff is personable, they make informed recommendations, and never give you the hard up sell. They are also more than willing to make other recommendations across the island to ensure you have a great visit. When you dive, you want every dive to be unique. For that, I highly recommend...

Okay - so Unique Sports Aruba is NOT a valet, high-service diveshop...you will be carrying your own equipment, setting up your own equipment, and helping to unload it off the boat. Bring your own anti-fog and anything else you might need because they don't provide it. I did not realize this when booking (through my hotel, and they couldn't offer... More
