Rented a dual person waverunner and had a great time. They set you loose in a large area away from the beach and you get 30 minutes time to ride. The waverunner was in great shape but sadly is limited by either speed or rpms, not sure which. We received life jackets and instruction on how to ride before heading out. Overall, it was a ton of fun and I would definitely rent from here again.

Today I rented a Hobie Cat 14 at the Aruba Watersports Center and it was awesome! The wind was great, the Hobie did its job and the personnel was very friendly, so I'll be back!

We booked parasailing and scuba diving through Aruba Watersports. We chose them because when I initially contacted them when I booked our Aruba vacation, I was told there wasn't a schedule and no details but that we'd pick our times and discuss what we hoped to get out of the tour with our instructor.
It was both of our first time parasailing. Our captain was great and his son assisted with the trip. We're so glad we decided to go parasailing and enjoyed the personalized experience instead of going out in a group.
We enjoyed our scuba diving experience because again, it was the two of us with the instructor and we decided with the instructor on visiting the Debbie II instead of the Antilla because it is a wreck and there's coral reef area (60 feet). Our dive was amazing. Our instructor pointed out fish, we saw fish we haven't seen on previous dives, and we even saw a sea turtle.
We both have motion sickness so the instructor and Aruba Watersports were understanding and accommodating about us deciding a one tank instead of two tank dive. The instructor wanted to ensure a great experience being we were only doing a one tank dive. At the same time we were diving, Red Sail Sports and Unique Sports had dive boats with larger groups. Again, we were pleased with our decision to go with Aruba Watersports. Being certified a year with only 10 dives completed thus far during past vacations (10 after being certified), we felt more comfortable and enjoyed our more personalized dive experience. We would recommend Aruba Watersports and it's conveniently located right on the beach at the Radisson.

This was so much fun! We had one of their employees take us out, all we had to do was relax and hear about the Island. Wish I could think of his name, he was wonderful! One of the best things we did for the money and very personal.

We took 4 dives in 2 days with Aruba Watersports and had a fantastic time. We were staying at the Radisson so the location is very convenient, just a few minutes walk from the lobby and all the staff was very friendly on the phone and in person. Four of us were together and went out by ourselves on a small boat so there was no crowds. Our divemaster (Pawel) was excellent and helped match our dives with our interests and the conditions each day; as well as making sure we saw a good variety of sea life. We each have only about 10 dives worth of experience and he was patient to reacclimatize us to diving and make sure everyone was comfortable. The second day Pawel even brought down his own underwater camera and made sure to e-mail us the pictures he took afterwards. Great experience and service!
