Comments Aruba's northern coast dive site have poor visibility. The southern coast have much better visibility 80 - 100 ft but it is a longer boat ride from the large hotels, the winds make it choppy and the current can be very strong. The southern reefs are in good shape with many small fish and critters. Overall, the diving was much better than I expected.

Red Sail sports for a cattle boat operation is well run. Their boats had drinks, snacks and fresh water rinse tanks. They no longer have storage area for you own dive equipment. Lugging it back to your hotel room every day was a pain.
