Diving in Aruba is famous for the spectacular shipwrecks and interesting coral formations that
dominate Aruba's underwater realm. This includes the 400 ft. Antilla wreck, one of the largest
wrecks in the Caribbean. Most of Aruba's dive sites lie along the protected western and southern
coasts, a short distance from the hotels on Palm Beach.
Aruba's waters are rich in exotic marine life, including stingrays, moray eels, manta rays,
barracudas and yellow tail. A large, shallow sand plateau surrounds Aruba making boat travel the
most convenient method of reaching the off-shore reefs. Interesting coral formations are found from
shallow water depths of 20 to 100 feet, with little or no current and flat surface conditions.
