We went to Aruba for two weeks of sun and fun after visiting there as a day
spot from a cruise. I had completed my in pool sessions and test with our
great dive shop here in the Sault, called Sault Scuba. I was really looking
forward to completing my open water dives there as my husband took the PADI
course. After consulting with the staff at Pelican, I decided to do my PADI
certification along with my husband.  Jacky was our contact at the dive
shop, and Diana and Famke did our open water dives and certifications with
us. Jerry was great as a dive master, and gave us several tips to work on,
they are a great buch to work with newbies such as my husband, and were
quite comfortable letting me do my thing as I had prior training, but
keeping a close eye on every aspect of our diving. We ended up both
certified and the diving is great there. We went to the Arashi reef (48
feet), the Pedernalis boat (25 feet)and the Atilla shipwreck. We saw
wonderfull fish and the blue parrott fish are not to be missed. Several
species of angelfish, and the smooth trunk fish are so cute to watch
swimming, and on the last dive a huge porcupine fish, it had to be 3 feet
in length. Many thanks to the great staff, we will definately back!!
