Diving in Aruba is famous for the spectacular wrecks and interesting coral formations that dominate the underwater kingdom of Aruba. This includes the 400 foot long Antilla wreck, one of the largest wrecks in the Caribbean. Most of Aruba's dive sites are located along the protected western and southern coasts, a short distance from the hotels in Palm Beach.
Aruba's waters are rich with exotic marine life, including stingrays, moray eels, manta rays, barracudas and yellowtails. A shallow sand plateau surrounds Aruba, and makes boat travel the most convenient method of reaching the reefs. The interesting coral formations are found in shallow water depths of 20 to 100 feet, with little to no current and flat surface conditions.
Please note :
- Junior divers (10 and 11 year olds) are not permitted on morning 2 tank dives as they are limited to a depth of 40ft. They are welcome in the afternoon for single tank diving.
