This Aruba diving shore excursion gives you the option of choosing a 1-tank or a 2-tank dive. Check the description and departure times below and pick which is best for you. There is pricing with and without gear, if you want to bring your own please see the order form.
The waters around Aruba are filled with dazzling marine life. Turtles, green and spotted moray eels, stingrays, yellowtail snappers, and many more are waiting for a visit from you. The water depth is from 20 feet to 140 feet which makes Aruba the perfect location for scuba diving. And don't forget to see some of the many shipwrecks, like the famous Antilla.
The meeting point for this Aruba excursion is just a 10-minute taxi ride from the cruise ship pier. There is the option for anyone in your group who would like to go along, they may either hang out at the beach location where you will meet for your dive. Your professional and friendly scuba dive staff will get you checked in and the fun underway. First, they will give you an orientation about dive/s and then pass out your gear (or you may bring your own).
Next, you will board the dive boat and head out for your dive/s! Your friendly, English-speaking PADI dive instructors will guide you through the dive sites around the island. You will enjoy a personal approach as there is a maximum of 6 divers per Dive Instructor!
When your diving excursion is completed, the boat will return you to the beach. You may enjoy your Occidental Grand All Inclusive Day Pass (if purchased) with an open bar, all-you-want buffet, all the resort facilities including a swimming pool, lounge chairs on the beach and by the pool, pool games and activities, indoor game room activities and much more.
If you did not purchase the Occidental Grand All-Inclusive Day Pass, you may stay at the beach and return to the ship at your leisure and expense. There is a restaurant on-site to purchase drinks, sandwiches, coffee, etc. There are other activities on-site you may reserve in advance so others in your group may choose different activities such as parasailing, jet skiing, bicycling, Flyboard, Kayak, Hobie Cat Sailing, and more.
