I may be traveling to Aruba next month, and would most definitely go diving while I'm there. If you have a favorite dive operator and/or sites that I should visit, I'd love to hear from you! Thanks in advance for your help!

Hey Zig,
Make sure and dive the Antila - a WWII German U-boat resupply ship that was scuttled in only about 50' of water. The top wreckage still protrudes from the surface. Big wreck with lots of life. Don't know any individual operators well enough to recommend them. I only recommend operators I've been diving with. Have fun! :D
Happy diving everyone!

I wish! Bonaire has been on my list ever since a took a camera beneath the surface. That will have to be a later time. Plus, by the time I make it there, I'll have my dSLR housed.

Well, I just got back from Aruba. We used two dive operators while on the island, Mermaid Sport Divers and Red Sail Sports. If we went again, we'd definitely use Red Sail Sports for a variety of reasons. If you'd like more information, PM me.

Dive safely,
Zig

Well consider Curacao when traveling to the ABCs :)
It doesn't have the dive rep. of Bonaire but I would put the dive sites up against Bonaire anytime.
