Barcadera Reef aka Barcedera - Aruba

Barcadera Reef aka Barcedera is a boat accessible salt water dive site, located in Aruba. The maximum depth is 41-50ft/12-15m. The average visibility is 51-60ft/16-18m.

Barcadera Reef has a maximum diving depth of around 15.2 m / 49.9 ft and is suitable for all divers. The average visibility is 10-20 metres and access to the dive site is by boat.


Besides wrecks, we found Aruba’s reefs to be intact and healthy. Large stretches of coral meadows on a gently sloping bottom characterize Barcedera Reef, with dense stands of elkhorn, brain and staghorn corals populating the reef. Looking closely, divers can find Pederson’s Shrimp and Arrow Crabs alongside purple-tipped anemone, along with Flamingo Tongue and other colorful reef inhabitants.
