Scuba Diving and Snorkeling Adventures In Aruba for Rookies and Masters

If your ideal day at the beach is spent exploring the wonders beneath the water's surface, rather than sun bathing on the sand, then this list is just what you're looking for. Palm Beach highlights our list of the best places in Aruba to arrange scuba diving and snorkeling trips, but there are plenty of other great diving centers and snorkeling operators spread throughout the island, willing to pick up guests no matter which resort they’re staying in.    
For beginning or first-time scuba divers, there’s an arrange of diving centers that offer excellent diving lessons, guided scuba dives, including the most respected and sought-after PADI certifications. Advanced divers are able to build up their diving experience at more challenging and deeper dive sites, or with a Search And Recovery Diver Course from Native Divers Aruba.
If snorkeling is more up your alley, deciding where to make reservations can trigger a headache, if it’s not clear what kind of snorkeling adventure you’re looking for. Buying or renting snorkeling gear at your resort and plunging into the nearest waters is an option. But what about an adventurous sailing trip past colorful reefs and ship wrecks to explore? De Palm Tours has a couple of exciting snorkeling expeditions, even for the youngest snorkelers. Or check out the more intimate snorkeling tours we’ve included in this list. Happy finning!
