The best dive shop ever - not only very professional, but they make you feel right at home. Very safe - not a typical tourist dive shop by far. No - ah, 30 min over, let's go all up - great instructors that share and care. I have 400+ dives NDIC this is definitely the best experience. Did 2 wreck... More

We had booked a dive with another shop, but through a series of miscommunications, "ended up," and Windies instead. I AM SO GLAD WE DID!!!! Windie is fun and friendly and we loved our Divemaster. He took time to make sure we were safe and comfortable. The two dives were outstanding - I feel like we got the best of... More

Amazing dive shop very friendly staff and they go above and beyond to make your trip fun and safe. They have great rental gear and a great boat always going in small groups. Every time we come to Aruba we will be using Aqua Windies best on the island.

Did a two tank boat dive with Aqua Windies with hired gear. Pick-up/drop off service and equipment issue was fine. Small friendly group of 7 divers + dive master + 2 crew. Very attentive with good boat, safety and dive briefings though they did expect you set up your own gear (which was good!) Very good service all round and... More

At Aqua Windies you get the individual attention other snorkel and dive businesses in Aruba lack. They operate on a relaxed, trust-based schedule, and you will leave having experienced a local gem. The staff is multilingual (mainly Dutch speakers) and immediately amiable. I highly recommend.

I didn't go diving but I went snorkeling. The crew was very accommodating and pleasant to be around. The visibility in the water wasn't great that day but I thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

I dived 6 times with Sjoerd the week of June 23, 5 of these dives were for my Padi Advanced Open Water course. Sjoerd is an excellent teacher and diver, he explains very well and is very cautious. I felt safe with him at every dive. The captain of their boat and his helper (I forgot their names, sorry) are... More

This was my second year diving with Aqua Windies and what a pleasure it was. Windie and her staff were all friendly and ready to help, treating you just like you were a member of the family. I contacted Manon Hautman, their dive coordinator before arriving in Aruba and she had scheduled 8 great dives for me during my stay... More

We used aqua Windies to schedule our snorkeling. Michael was a great guide and wonderful with my 10 yr old. Swam down and grabbed a huge star fish for her to hold and sea urchins. Felt safe with him and he helped me feel more relaxed while snorkeling with my kids.
