Wonderful clean white beaches are a hallmark of Aruba and a treasure to the local people, not overly commercialized with vendors.

Too Smokey and also didn't pay out well. But we have been so many years we already knew it I do not believe this casino is owned by Marriott, which explains their lack of personality

This is one of the deepest dive sites on the West Coast of Aruba. We've explored this site many times over the last 8+ years and it never disappoints with the marine life. We also love Malmok which is usually a shallow dive option for a 2nd dive in the same area.

The Debbie II is a great dive. Deep and well situated for exploration. Expect to see barracuda, large rays, morays, and fireworms (DO NOT TOUCH! if you don't like pain!) This dive is best if in a small group and is a good spot for photography opportunities.

The Debbie II was a great wreck dive. it's fairly shallow, so the corals and fish had good color. There are a couple of compartements into which you can swim, and the wreck is covered in coral. One of the neatest views is looking from the bow to the stern along the side of the wreck, and seeing all the... More

This is one of my favorite dive sites on the island. The ship is largely intact and it has a good amount of sea life around it. It is worth going to.

This is a wreck dive site of moderate difficulty. Not really recommended for anyone without wreck dive training or experience. But nice.

Debbie II is an interesting wreck dive site but it is not really accessible otherwise. The wreck attracts shoaling fish including barracuda. The dive is suitable for all levels of divers.
