This is one of the must dive sites in Aruba. Calm water, deep and shallow dive. Th wreck is mostly intact and has some very cool swim throughs. You can watch the snorkelers above you while they watch you...kind a fun!!

Definitely check this out! its an easy dive and it is huge, close to the resorts (short boat ride) and fun for all levels. I recommend Red Sail Aruba for your rentals and Dive Master. The right Dive Master Makes The Dive. Tip Well!

Not too deep, visibility was good. A lot of fun! WWII German ship scuttled by her crew in 1940. Broken up but huge! Best site in and around Aruba.

This is a must do for any thrill seeker in Aruba! It is usually part of an excursion and worth the money. It is a large vessel so you can spend some time swimming around it. It is a bit too deep to snorkel, but...More

Large ship wreck with good sea life around. Sits at a very comfortable depth to dive. Easy to swim through and around. Good surviving structure. Good visibility at lower depths.

Visited via catamaran snorkeling tour. Even if you are a average to above average swimmer, give strong consideration to going into the water with some type of flotation device as the currents/waves will likely push you around. Plenty of fish and decent view of ship...More

My wife and I went snorkeling on the Arusun, a former racing catamaran. The Antilla is in 75 feet of water and we could see the bottom! The tropical fish were wonderful.

Second time diving this wreck, and it's still a very nice dive. A lot of big, open spaces to swim through and good fish life (puffers, scorpion fish, frog fish). Not a lot of coral, but a nice easy wreck dive,

We went with Delphi Water Sports. Great crew!! Super fun rope swing into the water and water slide off the back. Nice, clean, big boat. Our tour only had maybe 15 people on it in March - plenty of room. Lunch included.

I found that Tropic Car rental was the best and they have a service that picks you up at the airport ant takes you to them. The owner is very nice to deal with too.
