Aruba is a popular stop for cruise ships coming down from the United States, and has always been a popular spot for scuba divers to visit as well, with many even becoming dive pros and making it their home. Known far and wide as one of the friendliest places to visit, the clear waters of Aruba are a great place to scuba and snorkel, as well as soak up sun rays while watching the stingrays go by. Truly a relaxation destination, the added thrill of scuba diving in clear waters makes the nightly chill even better.

Nature is Aruba’s bread and butter, and because of this the dive industry has built up a considerable reputation for scuba and freediving. While many of the spots may become crowded, dive pros are more than willing to help you push through the masses and find your own day of peace on the sea.
