I am planing a trip to Aruba the end of June. Just wanted some feedback on diving/charters for one day of diving. My partner doesn’t dive but is giving me a day of diving. Thanks in advance for your help. Steve

Although I haven’t personally dove with anyone, here is some information I found that I hope will help you out.. Divers have said...

"I always dive with Romeo at Native Divers (Native Divers Aruba Scuba certifications) Give Romeo or Vanessa a phone call since they don’t always check emails. He is a small operator that only takes out 6 or 7 divers. Dive Aruba also gets good reviews but I haven’t dove with them. I only went out with Unique once about 4 years ago and there were 22 divers on the boat with 2 DM’s. Red Sail is also a cattle boat. Do a search on Mermaid and you will see that they have had a few problems in the past."

"I do not see Clive Paula’s dive shop in your list. We dove with him 3 years ago and he is one of the best DM’s we have ever used - very highly recommended."

"I dove with Clive also. six max on his boat. on drift dives you stay down as long as you want to. He was great."

Thanks for the input. I called Romeo up and am planning a dive with him. Thanks again for taking the time to respond.
