Overview
The unique environment of Aquabike or Hidro-rider can help you reduce the risk of injury and increase fitness levels in ways that cannot be accomplished with land exercise alone. Your body weights about 10% of its land weight when up to your neck in water. Water creates resistance to movement in all directions through a full range of motion. Increase or decrease the intensity by changing the speed of your movements.
Water massages your muscles with every movement of your arms & legs. This action increases circulation, promotes relaxation & helps remove stress and tension.
Join us to our great exercise program that we have daily while you are visiting Aruba.

Had a great time diving the Antilla wreck and Arashi reef. Very professional set up from start to finish and rental gear was in great shape. Had a range of divers from those with 500+ dives to those just getting certified, but with the nature of the dive masters it was a seemless experience with all having a great time out. Will definitely return to Aruba and dive with them again.

My husband and I came to Aruba for our honeymoon. He’s already a certified open water diver and I’d wanted to try diving for some time. I was incredibly nervous, borderline petrified, of the prospect of getting certified and diving at depth having only done 1 discovery dive in the past. It’s funny now thinking how nervous I was because the diving was the best part of the whole holiday and the course wasn’t too overwhelming because of the amazing and patient instructors. As soon as you arrive at the shop you feel a real sense of community and warmth from everybody you interact with. One of the first people we spoke to was Sjoerd who mentioned that the shops focus is safety over service (Focusing on safety rather than squeezing as many people on a boat as possible to turn out a profit). This immediately put me at ease feeling like the shop was a good fit for me and that I would have enough attention given to me when training. Big shout out to: - Nicole & Nora & Jimmy who trained me up for my certification - Jimmy with getting me equipped in what felt comfortable - I underestimated how important this is! - Sjoerd for always being a friendly face in the shop and recommending some local restaurants to help make the most of our honeymoon. Your passion for diving, passion for Aruba and just generally being a good person didn’t go unnoticed. - Sjoerd and Rob for taking us out on our last dive day (My first one being certified) - it was amazing. I’m so incredibly pleased I decided to get certified and that Max found this shop to do that. I have so many memories I’ll always cherish, diving skills to keep up the diving adventures and a real want to dive. Hopefully we’ll return one day! Thanks again, Sarah

We came with 3 families totaling 12 people. Six kids from 10-16 years old got certified as open water divers. and the six parents with varying experience and certifications dove with kiddies as well. The team was amazing! Nichole was the main instructor for the kids over the 3 days (since the kids all did online learning at home, they needed an additional 1 day on land/in the pool, 2 days for 4 dives off the boat). There were a total of 7 kids learning together, so they always had two instructors (nods to Nora, Sjoeard (sp?), and Rob), and for the boat days, there was a third divemaster for the remaining certified divers. The kids felt very supported as they were learning and always felt secure. and most importantly, they enjoyed themselves. The shop is very professional and organized all around. 2 thumbs up!
