As a certified diver, I was very impressed with their attention to detail and safety prep for the students they were training. The overall experience was great as the dive masters are obviously very familiar with the area. The length of the dives was great. Definately didn't rush us or short us on dive time (roughly 45mins per dive). Keep... More

I emailed Manon a couple of times to discuss dive sites, always emailed back promptly. Initially I was a little apprehensive because I had not done many dives in the sea but my instructor Stuart was great. He was very polite, patient and safe. We were in small groups and there was a trainee Dive Master Hanes, who was also... More

This is one of the best scuba centers in the world. I have tried several in different locations and by far these are the most patient, knowledgeable and professional divers I have learned to scuba with. The center itself is clean and has a great little cafe inside to take care of post dive hunger. Sjoerd was great at helping... More

I dove 2 days with Aqua Windies, the first day we went to Antilla's Wreck and Arashi Reef; the 2nd day to Airplanes and Sponge Reef. The whole crew was amazing. They picked me up on time from my hotel, took me to their shop which is a nice facility with a restaurant and all the amenities to clean and... More

Our sons, 14 and 17, did a padi open water course here. The training was excellent. When on a boattrip for the last 2 dives my younger son got a very bad tooth-ache going down and he panicked. After he went to the dentist and the problem got fixed there was no way he wanted to go diving again. The... More

Aqua Windies was recommended to me for training while on vacation. I found the staff very pleasant and helpful. The 25 meter pool was very clean; and I had a lane all to myself. I loved being able to swim laps in an outdoor pool under the sun.☀️🏊 Very nice facility.

Excellent, professional, friendly staff. They took us in small groups which we like, that allows them to be more attentive. I only dive once a year thus I have to deal with panic attacks (that's why God made Xanax). They were very patient and understanding with me. Really made for great diving. The reefs we dove we beautiful and alive... More

It's been 5 years since I've return to Aruba, so I contacted Aqua Windies in advance. Once I arrived they where expecting me, and greater me with open arms.

My husband and I visited Aqua Windies because they offer an introduction to scuba diving. In this course you learn the basics of scuba and are taken by a trained professional to an actual scuba location for a shallow dive. We were picked up at our resort by the dive instructor, Casandra (spelling may be incorrect). She was very friendly... More

I went to Aqua Windies after I had a really bad experience at another local dive shop. My only regret is that I did not go to this place first. The dive-masters are really professional and make you feel really safe and comfortable. Everyone from the driver who picked me up from my hotel to the office staff was really... More
