Any group can hand you the gear, get you in the water and hopefully get you home safe. Aqua Windies takes Into consideration your skill level and the conditions of the day. The staff is very personable, but safety is obviously their priority. Each divemaster has vast knowledge of the sea life and the history. What make them completely stand... More

I am a scuba diver with approx 60+ dives. I have visited Aruba twice and both times I dove with Aquawindies. I highly recommend them ! They are friendly and hospitable, but even more important, they are professional and their equipment is in excellent condition (this is very much an exception among many dive shops). Everytime I have used their... More

I've been diving in many places around the world with hundreds of diving centers and I have to say I found myself at home at Windie's. Friendly staff, very little waiting time, nice boat. They also give you a cheese sandwich between dives! Rental equipment is just fine and dives in Aruba are great. I definitely recommend this place. Thank... More

They got decent equipament and they really make an effort so you can enjoy the undersea. I will return soon for my certification. You wont... More

We have used this family-owned dive operation for the past 10 years when staying in Aruba. Their main focus is customer service and safety. When my kids were in their early teens they did their referral dives and got certified with Sjoerd and Manon. When we were diving with them they never put more than four divers per dive master...

We certified at Windies many years ago at the previous location. They've expanded to a new location and have added the nicest dive boat on Aruba. There's something for everyone. Swimming lessons, snorkeling, scuba lessons, diving for beginners, advanced scuba certifications and a really nice dive shop are offered here. There are no American-style sales pitches. No pressure, Dutch/Aruba-style, is... More

The environment that Aqua Windies provides is excellent along with a very professional and friendly staff. I have been diving in Aruba since 2005 and have experienced the hospitality of numerous dive shops on the island and would highly recommend Aqua Windies as the place to go! They do a wonderful job selecting their dive masters who are all very... More

I'm a diver of 8 years, almost 1,000 dives in various places, cave and deco certifications and I recently dove with Aqua Windies. Here are my thoughts.

Windie's finally got their boat and we were able to dive with them this year in Aruba. We have always used them to buy diving gear and rent snorkel gear and have on occasion gone with them for a shore dive. However, we loved their new boat this year and enjoyed our guides so much. Sjoerd and Rein as well... More
