Clive Paula's operation was great for me and my friends as we were looking
to stay away from the larger operators with 20 divers on the boat. Clive
takes a maxium of 7 divers. The boat is small but even with 7 divers on
board everyone managed just fine.
Aruba's reefs are not bad but obviously not the Island's priority. We saw
numerous homemade anchors buried in the reefs on every dive.
The wrecks however were suprisingly good. The Antilla was one of the most
interesting wrecks I've ever seen. The Jane C. and the Airplane wrecks made
for excellent dives as well.
We saw a few turtles, a couple of large Sting Rays, impressively large
moray's as well as a huge lobster living in the floor of the DC3. Spotted a
rock fish on one dive but the the ultimate find of the trip was made by my
partner who found a Sea Horse on Sponge Reef.
Aruba Beach Club was also just what we were looking for. We had a great
room right on the beach. It was clean, quiet and convenient.
All in all a great trip. I would definitely dive with Clive again.
