Unique Sports of Aruba took over for Red Sail Sports at the Radisson Aruba.
 Although a little more expensive then other dive operations in Aruba, we
found Unique Sports to be a small well organized dive operation that is
right next to the Radisson.  We went on four dives, two being wreak dives
and two being drift dives.  The Antilla wreak is a must dive, maximum depth
is roughly 60 feet.  Although visibility was only 15 feet, the coral and
small to medium fish was plentiful.  Each dive consisted of only 6 divers
and each dive was lead by a dive instructor, who were very knowledgeable
and catered the dive on the groups skill level.  This is a no thrills dive
operation, however, we found them very professional.
