Great 2 tank, 2 location shore dives while in town on cruise ship. Picked up & dropped off at cruise pier. Iris (sp?) was great dive master & guide! Lots of coral, small & medium fish, eel, lobster, etc.

I took my three kids to Happy Divers in Aruba for our first ever open water dives over New Years 2017. We did four dives in total. Jeffrey and his team were outstanding!!!! Very safe, fun and service oriented. Could not have asked for a better experience/memory. Highly recommend Happy Divers. The Forbes Family, Canada

We scheduled Happy Divers during a cruise ship stop - when we departed the ship, we were easily able to locate Happy Divers. They also did not charge me for not going on the dive - I was not feeling well from the day before. My Husband went forward with diving and could not stop raving about the experience. They... More

Jeffrey and his crew were outstanding. We booked six dives through Happy Divers while we were visiting Aruba. The location of his boat is great when staying on the northern side of the island. He has a zodiac boat that rides great and isn't meant for large groups so you dive in a small group. My fiancé finished his advanced... More

This was a low-frills but first rate dive experience (4 dives). Jeffrey and his helpers were extremely nice, had everything needed, and took the time to help a slightly out-of-practic diver. we saw a big shipwreck (Antilles) and then 12+ sea turtles, which is always fun. Thumbs up!

I emailed Jeffrey Kost with Happy Divers Aruba and made arrangements for a buddy and I to dive when we were in port on the Carnival Triumph.

We booked our diving with Jeffrey at Happy Divers in advance. We were arriving on the cruise ship. He made it clear the maximum group size was 4 people, and this was the truth, so you get a very personalized experience. We were in Aruba for two days, and dove both days. Both days Jeffrey met us at the port... More

Emailing to arrange my dives with Jeffrey was easy with quick responses. I dove 3 days and they picked me up at the Ritz-Carlton each morning on time. There was never more than 4 divers. 2 days (8am-12n) we did boat dives and the fish were plentiful, the small boat was more like a motorized raft but fine by me.... More

Thank you for a nice and complete review. We always try to improve our service. Sometimes we do shoredives , which are mostly appreciated for the variety with reefdives on southcoast. For the boat we have a 21foot rib , max 4 divers , which brings us fast and safe to the divesites. Equipped all the gear needed for safe... More
