Comments Good operation. Small boat but only 6 divers. Many divers in Aruba are pretty inexperienced. We had good divemasters. Only 1 day of the 5 we dove did we have 6 divers. The crew knew some were inexperienced so they had a 2nd dive master to take them up early (when they were low on air) so the experienced divers could finish the dive.

Pickup and drop off at hotel was prompt. They kept gear overnight, rinsed and on tanks the next morning. We took our wetsuits with us so they would dry. Separate tank for cameras although few photographers on board. Good briefings, good safety, snack between dives, fresh water on boat.

We will dive with them again.
