My boyfriend and I had the pleasure of diving with unique diving this past week. It was a great dive! It was so cool to see the shipwreck not far off shore. It had tons of fish in and around it, and also a nice size shark. It was my 2nd ocean dive for certification and I couldn't have been... More

We dove for five days with Clive of Dive Aruba. We most enjoyed the leisurely pace of the dives that lasted over 50 minutes each. Clive does not take more than 7 divers and we really enjoy diving in small groups - - sometimes only 3 or 4 divers on a dive. We have used some of the other dive... More

My boyfriend and I were just in Aruba over the Christmas holiday and planned to do some diving. I am brand new to the sport and still needed to do my open water checkout dives, while my boyfriend was more experienced and looking for more of an adventure. We found both with Private Diving. I emailed owner Ron Huijbers before... More

As an expert scuba diver that I'm , I was very pleased with the equipment, boat and guides. If I'm ever back, I'll... More

We dove with Private Diving in Mar/2010. We dove with Ron (boat captain), and Camille (dive master). I am HIGHLY experienced, and was also very rusty - no dives in the past 7 yrs. So, I chose private diving to have a boat to myself, and the guarantee of a divemaster as my buddy. That way, I'd have an experienced... More

After careful research and calling around in advance, we booked our instruction with Ron of Private Diving. He and Martin were so incredibly professional, friendly and patient that we breezed through... More

Three dives over two days with Jeffrey and Diamond (sp?). Good equipment. Good dives. Good Dive Masters. My wife and I both felt taken care of. For conversation, it would probably be better if we knew dutch. For diving, I would use them again. I would recommend to a friend.
