    Discover SCUBA ~ Who has the pool??

    While in Aruba next year my husband wants to do the Discover SCUBA - I am certified so I want to do a 2 tank dive with him.

    Which company has the pool for the Discover SCUBA?

    thanks!

    We did the Discover Scuba course with red sail last year and we did our pool work at the Surf Club pool.

    I did my pool work with Red Sail at the Hyatt. If you're planning this far in advance, Padi does have the open water course available online. It's four dives instead of two, but may or may not be an option for you guys. I've done my open water and advanced open water online and with Red Sail and had a great experience each time.

    I had been diving a few times before and loved it... It was my wifes first dive and she liked it. Her ears bothered her for a few days after the dive, so not sure if we will be diving again.

    I can't say enough good things about the dive instructor - she was so patient with my wife who was struggling making her decent to the bottom. I was down on the bottom watching and giggling looking up as they struggled to get down.

    Did you book with Red Sail at the Surf Club or before you left? Do you remember the name of the dive instructor??

    Thanks!

    We booked at the Red Sail kiosk in between the Marriott and the Moomba Beach Bar when we got there. I don't recall the instructors name.

    The instructors that I've met have all been very good. I've worked with Anime more than any of the others but Sara and Anthony are also very good.
