Learn to dive in just one day! This course is perfect for the adventurer who wants to try scuba diving for the first time. It's also ideal for those who would like to go diving, yet dont have the time for a full certification. The diving trip includes class instruction, pool session and an open water dive.


Why not take the opportunity to go scuba diving during your stay in Aruba? This specific scuba diving course is a great introduction to this popular water sport. Nothing compares to the weightless freedom of diving and with expert instructors on hand. No previous experience is necessary! The boat is built with easy access to the dive platform featuring twin drop down ladders, a two tiered photo table for camera and video equipment, a restroom and fresh water showers for rinsing off. The tour will include two hours of instruction in the pool. The theory session teaches students the basic rules for scuba diving such as dealing with pressure, breathing on scuba, and how to use the equipment. Then you will take a 1.5 hour boat trip where you will do a 1-tank open water dive of approximately 30-40 minutes. The dive boat goes to a shallow reef or wreck and an instructor will accompany you at all times underwater. Dives are in the 20-30' range. All instruction and necessary equipment is included.

    Our paper work told us to meet at the Red Sail location at 1230 pm. When we arrived no one was there. The captain and diver instructor arrived a few minutes later. At 1:00 pm the dive instructor told us that the red sail employee with our paperwork was supposed to be there as well. At 115 the captain said he called the Red Sail manager and was told the employee was on the way. The employee arrived at 130 with no apology or explanation. Once our excursion began, the captain and dive instructor were amazing. If not for the unexplained delay, and the lack of any acknowledgement of wasting our time, I would have given this 5 stars and recommended it to everyone.

    This was my first time ever diving. The Instructor and training was on point. It was a lot to learn and remember, but once you practiced in the pool, you were ready for the ocean dive. Equipment was in good condition and working order. The only problem was the listing said food was provided and it wasn’t. Definitely worth it and would do it again tomorrow.

    This was one of the BEST things we did on the island. Carl was our diving instructor and was very patient and helpful explaining the dive theory and how to operate the regulators in the pool. Was even better when we made it into the ocean! Pointed out sea turtles, multiple awesome fish, a lobster, and two sting rays! Was an unforgettable experience and my wife and I can’t wait to do it again!

    Na verdade não temos como avaliar o passeio pq não houve. Gastamos para poder chegar até o lugar 40 dólares de táxi e quando chegamos fomos informados q não haveria o passeio e que fariam o reembolso via TripAdvisor, isto sem nenhuma opção de marcar outra data. Esta viagem foi muito esperada e planejada por nós e ficamos imensamente decepcionados com a atitude da empresa que fez pouco caso das nossas expectativas. Não recomendo, são pouco profissionais. E aguardo o reembolso integral sem ter q acionar a justiça. Ainda confiando apesar do acontecido no TripAdvisor.

    My friend (not certified) and I (certified to dive) wanted to experience this together. This was the best bet. It was a good review for me since its been a year since my last dive and great for her because this was her first time diving. Easy to book. Had to do a little prep ahead of time on the padi app, but was easy to do. Instructor was very calm and accommodating! Such a beautiful island to dive!

    We weren’t allowed to participate. I’ve waited so long to do a dive in the Caribbean and this just ruined our vacation. So disappointed.
