Liked the first time scuba diving experience - Thanks to Unique Sports instructors

As someone who is afraid of water and doesn't know swimming per se, I was skeptical of taking the dive underwater and staying there for more than half hour. Went ahead and took... read more

Very helpful and fun staff! Our dive instructor - Jonathan - was very professional and made our dives exciting! The company arranged for pick-up and drop-off from our hotel down the beach and assisted us with appropriate equipment, paperwork and knowledge for our open water certification. Upon returning to Aruba I would go through this company for future dives!

As someone who is afraid of water and doesn't know swimming per se, I was skeptical of taking the dive underwater and staying there for more than half hour. Went ahead and took the plunge and registered with Unique Sports of Aruba. The training was quick, though not in a hurry. They gave time to acclimatize with the equipment and... More

This shop was very accommodating when the shop I originally booked with failed to pick me up (see my other reviews). They were full for the afternoon dive but after they heard what happened to me they call a different dive shop and arranged a dive with a different shop for that day. Wow talk about customer service! I dove... More

First. I enjoyed diving in Aruba. Water is warm, plenty of fish and interesting reefs. The first thing I noticed as that the crew does not do anything other than hand you weights. You set up your tank and BCD. In over 70 dives in the Carribean, Hawaii and the South Pacific I have never before experienced this. Maybe it... More

I dove 3 mornings with Unique Sports. 3 wreck dives, 2 reefs and one drift. All great dives; the Antille wreck twice and a Tug Boat in 128'. The boat captain Alex was great, The dive leaders Lisa or Bart led nice, long dives every time. I had to rent a BCD and it was in great shape, no problems... More

My wife and I are certified divers but wanted to dive with my son who has some experience but isn't yet rated. We checked reviews and determined these guys had a good reputation. We tried to book through our resort but our concierge was unhelpful and told us we would not be able to dive at the same time as... More

We were recently on Aruba for 13 nights. I first signed up with Unique for a 2 tank boat dive trip. I thoroughly enjoyed it. All of the staff were friendly and professional. The Dive Master, Bart, was also helpful, friendly, and professional. He was very attentive to everyone on the dive and carefully monitored each diver's air levels. While... More

I took the 2 dive tour that included a shipwreck and reef dive and also a night shipwreck dive. The first dives went to 55 and 40 feet and the night dive went down to 25 feet. Bart was the best guide I have had so far in my dive experience. Friendly and professional.

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
