Overall great beginner diving experience!
Keith_T
, Oct 2020
Overall, we had a great time with this beginner diving experience! The instructors were very good and very patient with our group. We started with instructions on land at their diving "office", then proceed with instructions in the water. The actual dive lasted about 45 minutes. It is probably not the best location for viewing sea life but it's very safe. It's not a bad compromise for a beginner class. We would have liked a little more freedom in the water though. The instructors were holding us back constantly by the vest and you don't really get to swim alone at all. However, this is a beginner course so we understand that they want to prioritize safety. But just a tad more freedom would be nice! Overall, we had a great time!

Great experience

My boyfriend and I did scuba diving for the first time and we definitely felt super comfortable and save. Marc gave us a great introduction with all the theoretical details before we went into the water. The first time we went under water and I started panicking but Marc did a great job giving me all the time I needed to get used to the situation. He calmed me down and made me feel save again. We had a perfect first scuba diving experience and we would definitely choose Pure Diving Aruba again:)

Hi Christine, Thanks for writing this positive review, we appreciate it. it is always a nice challenge for us to make sure that everyone feels comfortable in the water. And especially if there is some panic. The best compliment is when we hear after the dive that it was great. We were happy to dive with you and hope to see you again, team Pure Diving Aruba

Very Personalized Instruction
Christi_C
, Aug 2020
This is a small outfit with a personal touch. It was fantastic! The dive instruction was very personal and very small group. For someone who is not certified, this is the company to dive with. The Steve, dive instructor, was helpful and Very knowledgeable. He paid a great deal of attention to the student divers. Pure Diving is a great outfit with very personalized instruction, not like a big outfit which treats you like a number. Highly recommend!

Hi Christi, Thanks for writing this kind review, we appreciate it very much. It was a pleasure for us to dive with you and Sarah. And to see how proud you were during the first dive with your daughter. Glad Sarah likes it. Next time for her Open Water course? Thanks again for letting us use the nice pictures for our Facebook. Hope to see you again soon. Warm greetings from the Pure Diving Aruba team

An AMAZING experience! The diving instructors were very patient and experienced. They made us feel safe and comfortable. The dive location was beautiful and filled with plenty to see. The coral and fish were breathtaking. Hopefully this encourages us to continue diving as we explore other tropical destinations.

A Must for Beginners to Scuba Diving!

We started with a short instructional booklet. Then we had a short quiz in the water to make sure we understood the lesson. The instructors were very patient and made sure we were all safe. We were able to see Starfish, schools of different fish and two sea turtles. An awesome experience.

Hi Orlando, Thanks for your 5 stars review. We love to dive at the Tres Trapi. A lot of marine life over there and the turtles themselves also like it. At least they are always curious about what we are doing. It was nice to give you a good experience. Hope to see you again, team Pure Diving Aruba

We met with the instructors on 2/13 at 2pm. They were very informative, safe and careful with us as beginners to scuba diving. This is a must for beginners to scuba diving. Great experience. Thank you.

Thank you Orlando, for writing your 5 stars review. We appreciate that very much. As much as we like to go out with the non-certified divers to show them the underwater world. Hope to see you again, team Pure Diving Aruba

Hi Nicholas, Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We are always very happy to read that you liked your introduction dive with us. It would be nice to see you both again for an other introduction dive or for the Open Water course. We can do this course as Padi and as SDI instructor with the E-learning code so that you can start at home before you come to our island again. Warm regards, team Pure Diving Aruba

First off... the instructor was great!!! He taught you everything that you need to know. He was very knowledgeable about diving. He went with your pace, not to slow, not to fast. Second, it was affordable !!! The dive itself was great too. Saw turtles, an octopus, eels, puffer fish, sea urchins, purple, yellow fish, etc. It was amazing!!! Highly recommend this trip
