Comments 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.
