Five stars for Dive Aruba. Clive is an excellent teacher for new divers. We spent 55 minutes under water on our first dive! This is a small operation with equipment in top condition. There is a six diver maximum on Clive's boat, so you will get personal attention and customized instruction. We had two teenagers and were able to progress... More

I'm a novice diver, and only Dive in Aruba. I've gone out on other boats when Clive isn't available, but always return to Dive Aruba with Clive. He is great. Very patient and always delivers a quality dive.

I did a fair bit of reading about diving Aruba before booking, a lot of which was done here on Trip Adviser as well other sites. Many recommended Clive, and for good reason. I coordinated via email and telephone and booked with him and had an excellent experience and without question will book with him again next trip. He's a... More

Two words: bottom time. With Clive, you aren't rush. We did 12 dives, 10 of them above 1 hour. The other charters don't let you lingered for that much time. We did the Jane sea wreck, the antilla, the airplanes and most of the reef. Clive dive alone, so when we did drift dives, he came into the water with... More

Clive operates a good dive operation. He caters to small groups and explains each dive beforehand. Just be aware that this is not a big dive operator. if you like the personal touch, Clive is your man.

Before I left on my vacation to Aruba i did some research for Dive shops to go with. I decided to go with Clive because he always got back to me, head great reviews and it was a smaller trip (ie i woudln't be diving with 12 people - it would be 6 at most). It did not let down.... More

This was our (wife & I) first time scuba diving and decided to go dive with Clive due to the ratings on Trip Advisor. After a few back and forth emails I schedule the Discover Scuba Dive with Clive and he was right on time to pick us up just like he said. Went to his place filled out the... More

Clive is fantastic. A genuine man. He will cater to your needs at any level. I have been diving for 4 years and have 130 dives throughout the Caribbean. My friend is a new diver and Clive made sure everyone was doing well. Clive operates a small boat and does everything himself. He has a great system so sit down... More

I went on a private dive charter with my two sons. The owner, Clive, was very good and we made two dives, including an underwater plane wreck. His equipment was very good and well maintained. Visibility was excellent and the scenery was spectacular. All the reviews on this business seem accurate and indicate a solid operation. Personally, for the price... More

We had an awesome time diving with Clive. Loved it. Clive picked up the four of us at the cruise port, we geared up and headed to the dive spot. Everything was well planned and we really enjoyed the dives.
