First time I had a female dive master!! We need more!!! Natasha was a great dive master!!! Took us to the wreck of the Antilla. The dive was very nice with lots of photo ops with the sea life. I have my own equipment so I cannot comment on that. The boat was modern and the staff super friendly. Everyone... More

I did two days diving with Unique and each day was excellent. The operation is very well run and the DMs are professional and considerate. I entrusted my kids to them to do the Discover Scuba course and both returned enthused.

This is a difficult review to write because the dive masters are really great people, but the operation itself needs some help as referenced in other recent reviews. I interviewed Unique and one other dive operation about a 10 dive package. The girl behind the desk was not very helpful in explaining the operation which is part of the problem.... More

I reviewed Unique Sports last year and thought an update would be useful. Last year I complained about equipment condition, and this has been addressed. The BCDs and regulators I used this year are new since then. I did eight dives over a couple of weeks, including South Coast reefs, Antilla, Debbie II, and Malmock reef. The wreck dives, Debbie...

My first wreck dive and it was great. Plenty of turtles and beautiful fish seen. Fun group of divers with good experience for a beginning diver

I signed our family up on a snorkel/snuba excursion on their catamaran ship. We went to the Antilla shipwreck and then off to Boca Catalina for the 2nd stop. The main reason we did this was to expose our 12yr old son to the world of diving. Both my wife and I are PADI certified but haven't dove in a... More

I went with my girlfriend to scuba dive on saturday 15 and we liked so much that we repeated the adventure on sunday 16. They have a great staff. We first had a very young instructor from Southafrica, Marc. We took the intro dive and in 30 minutes of basics we were ready to the sea. We went to Pedernales... More

I finished my open water certification with Unique. All of the instructors I had are great at what they do and made the learning process easy. In addition to their instruction skills the staff are friendly, personable and attentive. I will dive with Unique every year when I visit Aruba.

This was not my first experience with Unique, I previously dove with them in 2011. It was similarly frustrating as this experience, detailed below. Unique is a nice operation, and their dive masters are well trained. However, the business side is a mess and it is not worth dealing with them if you can avoid it. I called them the... More
