Windsurfing & Kite Surfing

Aruba's constant trade winds have made the Island a very popular spot for windsurfers. Beginners to hard-core enthusiasts will find suitable locations for their skill levels from flat-water sailing to challenging wave conditions. Aruba is host to the annual Hi-Winds Windsurfing Pro-Am Grand Prix World Cup event in June.

Snorkel and Scuba

Snorkeling is usually done in shallow waters for the best view possible of hundreds of tropical fish which can be seen in Aruba. All you need is a diving mask, snorkel (breathing tube) and the ability to swim! Many people prefer flippers (fins) for added propulsion to cover longer distances more easily. Snorkeling trips, including boat rides to and from the site are available and snorkeling gear can be rented.

Aruba also has many Scuba Diving operators who offer scuba divers the opportunity to take advantage of Aruba's clear blue waters filled with an huge variety of coral and fish of infinite color and hues. If you have never experienced scuba diving before, you can take a Resort Certification Scuba Diving Course so that you don't miss out on the thrilling beauty of Aruba's underwater world. Visibility under favorable conditions is up to 90 feet and the water temperature is seldom below 78°F.

Off the northwest tip of the island, near Palm Beach, lies the hulk of the Antilla, a German ship that was scuttled at the beginning of World War II. It has become a favorite scuba spot and attracts many underwater photographers.

Especially recommended for scuba diving are the areas near Malmok, Spanish Lagoon and Commandeurs Baai where a popular diving instructor operates from.

Scuba is such a big attraction in Aruba that we have dedicated our Diving section to it.

And lots more!
