I've been diving w/Fly n Dive for two weeks every year since 2008. Great value if you buy a multi-day package; averages about $25 a tank. Shop van will pick you up at your lodging in am and return in pm. Can also store your gear overnight. Glad you had a good experience. Aruba's diving may not be Bonaire, but can't beat Aruba's topside activities, restaurants, etc.
