Did a refresh dive with Aqua Windies and then a couple wreck dives. Price was right, people were great to work with (staff and other divers alike).

Found Aqua Windies after a friend recommended it. So glad we chose them! It was so amazing.. We went to Mangel Halto and it was a private trip with just myself and my fiancé. It was like we had the ocean all to ourself! So much life in the reef there. I can't even explain how many fish we saw.... More

Our private snorkeling trip couldn't have been better. Sjoerd went above and beyond our expectations. He brought us to Mangel Halto and began the trip on the left side of reef and we floated to Mangel Halto w/ little to no effort. It was so amazing to see the abundance of underwater life. He explained the names & habits of... More

I had an all around great experience. The dives were great and the dive master was awesome. very knowledgeable regarding helping divers with less experience to enjoy the dive safely. Ship captain was great as well also very knowledgeable getting us to and from the dive sites. Will use again on my next trip to Aruba.

My friends and I spent a week diving with Aqua Windies in July 2014. We were very pleased with the diving in Aruba, but did find our shore diving experience to be quite challenging on the first dive due to a long trek in the water to get to the proper location where we could actually start our decent.

Last February (2015), I've made four dives with Aqua Windies (AW). For two specific reasons, we chose for AW: (i) unique (enthousiastic) recommendations on trip advisor compared with other dive schools on Aruba and (ii), maybe even more important, locals who recommended AW. The expectations were high and AW did definitely not let us down: the dive masters were professional... More

We spent 4 days diving with Manon, Sjourd and Mario. You could not ask for a better dive experience. They are patient and calming to anxious divers and very attentive. Top notch boat. They will pick you up at your hotel and take you home. We will be back.

We had multiple skill levels on the boat and he structured the dive to where everyone could enjoy. Aquau Windies shop is clean and their gear in great shape and... More

I went to Aruba for a long weekend and really wanted to go diving. I reached out to numerous dive shops but many could not accommodate as the only day that I was available to dive was on a Sunday. Windie responded back to me right away informing me that they could accommodate a shore dive for us, which was... More

This was my first time with Aquawindies. Nice and friendly and professional staff. Rental gear is in good condition and they have a nice new boat which provides access to the more pristine and less visited dive sites which are not accessible from shore. What else would you need more for an excellent dive? Thumbs up for the people at... More
