Overview
Make the most of your time in Aruba with this half-day scuba course that gets you out diving in the Caribbean Sea in no time. During classroom and pool time, learn the basics of scuba theory and practice, and then head out on the open water to explore Aruba's shallow reefs or a shipwreck. All equipment is included.
Highlights
  • Intro scuba course lets you learn a new skill on vacation
  • All equipment and instruction provided, no experience necessary
  • Course sets you up for diving the rest of the time you're in Aruba
  • Discover the underwater world and species around Aruba
What to Expect
When you're in Aruba, spend half a day learning to scuba dive so you can get out in the water as quickly as possible. Book ahead and plan your course for the beginning of your stay, and then spend the rest of your time on the island mastering your skills and going on additional dives.  This course includes a classroom and pool instruction phase, which teaches you the basic rules for scuba diving and how to use the equipment. Next, it's on to the boat, which has twin ladders for easy access off the dive platform. Do a 1-tank open water dive to start you off. The dive boat goes to a shallow reef or wreck and an instructor accompanies you at all times underwater. All equipment is included.

We were in Aruba for a short winter vacation and decided to give diving a try. It was the first time for two of the three of us and Mike and Lisa did everything right to teach us what we needed. The boat ride out to the site was short and we saw some incredible marine life

Dear Mrs. Jmekins08, Thank you for writing such nice words regarding your diving lessons and for the "five star" rating. We are grateful to read such nice comments from your experience on having Michael as your Dive instructor. It's amazing to hear that Michael was patient, friendly and kind to teach you're new diving skills. However, it's unfortunate that this time you did not get to experience what beauty resides under our waters. It's only when we receive such positive feedback on the lessons and supportive dive members, do we rest knowing that we have done our jobs well. We hope that next year we could have you with us again! and ready to conquer all your fears, we will have our supportive dive team ready to go and show you all our natural hidden beauty's underwater. Sunny regards, Jennifer

My husband and I are very experienced divers, but our teen son is not. He took an introductory scuba class here, and it was not great. Basic skills are not reinforced and mastered before taking off, such as how to properly clear a regulator or mask, just very basic things that

Dear Mrs. Rrc245, We would like to apologize for your negative experience with us. However, we'd like to learn more about your situation and what exactly did not go well. We know how much input our dear instructors put on our guest. For us is strange to hear that they did not explain or did the proper instructions for your son. They are trained to provide a good service and explanation for all our guest. So, please email us at jennifer@redsailaruba.com and we will get back to you promptly. We want to make things right, and would be looking forward for your email. Yours sincerely, Jennifer
