Aqua Windies has very friendly and relaxed staff. I did my PADI Open Water and Advanced Open Water and wreck diving specialty course. In total I made 19 dives with them. The training and/or rental gear is in proper working condition. I trained with both Sjoerd and Raymond. Both of them are fine instructors, they are confident in their training,... More

We had such an amazing time with everyone at Aqua Windie's. Windie is so awesome and helpful. We had issues with our referral through our dive shop in California and Windie handled the entire thing for us, making sure that we didn't have to spend any of our vacation time dealing with the paperwork. Sjoerd is THE BEST! We had... More

Rene and Windie run a class act shop. I've dove multiple times in Aruba with a few different shops and these guys are at the top. Great boats & staff on one happy island. Can't wait to go back!

Fantastic two tank dive in Aruba visiting a reef and shipwreck. The folks running the dive shop were both friendly and professional, had me and my girl friend feeling like part of the gang. Small dive groups made for a great experience. Perfect for newly certified divers looking for independence without feeling like your on your own (also great for... More

this diving is great. it's the only one i've had in aruba. the equipment is brand new and in good state. the people is very nice (especially Sjoerd) and i really felt conforable during my dives. the feeling i've had (before and after) is that they don't push you to dive with them (while other divings did), but they really...

Since you see "Aqua Windies" logo you start to feel happiest, it's owner Wendy receives you with kindness and explain the rules to enjoy the experience with safety. The instructors, Shurt and Raymond, explain so well the exercises and make you feel confortable, they have patience in case you have some doubts. The captain Phil is strict when you are... More

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
