“Sunset Sail”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013

We went on the sunset sail during our honeymoon as a wedding gift from a friend. It had an open bar which was of course fun. The complimentary appetizers were not that great, pretty much just things you could heat up in a microwave. The boat was plenty big enough for the crowd though and we were able to move around and mingle. Great photo opportunities. The bathroom is down a ladder and basically an airplane bathroom but what can you expect, it's a boat.

“Diving Safe”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

I have been an open water diver for 25 years and I wanted my 13 year old daughter to be able to dive with me and see the beauty of being underwater. She is a good, safe swimmer and we decided that she would take her dive lessons from Red Sail Sports. Red Sail is a PADI 5 Star Dive Center with a staff of very knowledgeable teachers and instructors. Their equipment is current and well serviced and the boats are well maintained and inspected regularly. We opted for the diving certification course. This is a three-day course that includes classroom work, pool training and open water 'check out' dives. Everything went fine and she took her first and second open water dives on schedule. Unfortunately on her later dives she could not equalize her ear pressure and she is now two dives away from her certificate. From my experience, Red Sail is the only dive firm on Aruba I would trust to recommend to anyone wanting to dive.

“JETLEV Red Sail Sports, Aruba”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2013

The newest coolest water sport is the JETLEV. My husband did the JETLEV excursion while on our recent Aruba vacation. He booked it through our resort, La Cabana, but had to go to the Hyatt Resort which is where the JETLEV Red Sail is located. He loved it and we loved watching him. My husband is 60 years old and it was exciting to see him jetting above the water. The JETLEV allowed him to soar 30 feet in the air.....and hover above the water. He received about 10 minutes of instruction. The throttle was controlled remotely by the flight-instructor, but hubby controlled directional movement. It is so cool to watch.

“Don't dive here!!!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

They rush you around, our boat captain was incredibly rude, the dive guide was a total novice and rushed us around all over the place under water, and she didn't point out anything!!! I'd never go here again. We actually had our entire dive refunded.

I would like to say that the Dive masters that my wife and I had while on our honeymoon were great. We went out on three dives. Fitz the dive master on our first dive was great and took the time to make sure our dive went well, since it was our fist dive after our certification. The next two dives we had Vicky and Linda as our dive masters. They both took time and pointed out things on our dive. They all made the dives fun and relaxing. Would use them again.
