In the morning we go out for a 2 tank dive, and in the afternoon for a single tank dive. To start the day well, before we go out we welcome you with the best coffee on the island :-) « less

This Diveshop has a personalized operation, if you want to avoid big crowded groups these are the ones you want to dive with. They picked us up at the hotel and take us back every day. The staff really want us to enjoy the dive experience, even when we had a last minute problem with our gear they immediately helped... More

This scuba shop is run by a retired Dutchman who has no financial resources, nor he cares too much to run a good business so no fancy expectations here. He did do the job though, we got scuba certified here. All of the learning process was thorough and useful, they invested time in us and took us to dive places.... More

Went on a single tank dive afternoon out of moomba beach location. Was not told I would be the only certified diver going with a group of resort course divers. Sat on boat for at least 30 minutes while DM did skills with the other group off of back of boat while still tied up at pier. Set up my... More

First the good stuff: The dives, including the Antilla, were great. The dive master, Ylja, was also great to dive with - he knows what he is doing, and seemed very willing to help the less experienced divers on the boat. My rented BCD seemed practically new. If you are staying in the high-rise hotel district, the dive shop and... More

The crew was very professional and was focused on safety. Although this company is a little more expensive than some of the other options on the island, the personal attention and friendly staff was worth the extra money. The dive sites were very nice :). Highly recommend DiveVersity!!

Excellent attention! My son wanted to make his open water SSI and he did it with an outstanding training. Always small groups no mass activities.

While we were in Aruba, my daughter wanted to do her open water dives for her certification. I did some research prior to our arrival and chose DiveVersity for her. They let me tag along on the first set of dives( at NO additional charge) so I could take pictures. There were four crew members that went along and only... More

In the past years, we have made a lot of dives with various dive companies at Aruba, but none of these companies really paid attention to the diver. you're just another dollar for them. This is absolutely not the case with DiveVersity Aruba. No overcrowded boats with one instuctor or a divemaster, but two or three divers per crewmember. Now... More

New boat, the Iron Lady New Equipment Fresh coffee Very very attentive while leading dives. There are small groups of no more than 6-8 divers, usually 4-6. Almost every dive had 3 dive masters and a captain. Very very safe for beginners and a lot of fun for the more experienced divers.

Did one two-tank dive with Marcel and his crew. Very professional, helpful, and pleasant. Great boat and equipment. Not sure there is anything else I'd want in a dive. Would have dived again e.g. tomorrow, if work wasn't keeping me on conf calls and spoiling my vacation (which I knew might happen this week). Else I'd be out again with... More
