    Made a last minute trip to Aruba for a week.

    Didn’t bring any dive stuff since this is more of a family trip with my newborn. With that said, I was wondering if it was worth the money to dive out here.

    If so, what dive op you recommend?
    I’m here now.
    Feel free to tell me it isn’t worth it.

    thanks

    Dive Bonaire! Personally I would not recommend Aruba specifically for a dive destination, however, if you are there for other reasons and can sneak in a few dives it could be worse. The Antilla wreck was somewhat entertaining, but with all the boats, divers and snorkelers it looked more like Disneyland. During one of our dives the Atlantis submarine came wizzing by at 60 feet with our goofy DM flailing off the back of it like a flag in the wind, so that was interesting to say the least.
