Aruba

Aruba is a beautiful and varied dive destination with many different, exciting sites to explore. Aruba is not normally considered for its wreck dives but it is rich in both actual shipwrecks and purposefully sunk artificial reefs, including airplanes!

You’ll see typical Caribbean life like nurse and reef sharks, possible eagle rays, turtles, stingrays, and lots of fish: snapper, angelfish, grunts, parrot fish, and grouper.
