    Will go back to Aruba in March!

    Hello my name is Eric, me, wife and son will go in Aruba for a week (March 3-10). I am a free diver and a passionate photographer. Every trip we make, I take hundreds of underwater pictures, usually spend 0 minute on beaches and I'm in the water everyday.

    I notice this site and forum, I think it's very well done and useful and from the thread/posts I've read, you seems to have a great forum community.

    Congrats.

    I hope we'll have fun and make great pictures there.

    Eric

    I would recommend the Mangel Halto area to you. I think it is the best and mostly live reef in Aruba. Enjoy!!

    Nice thank you! It's noted!

    Is there good deep spot (30-70ft), or some wreck around the island we can go see ?

    There's always the Antilla wreck. In about 80-100 ft. of water. You may want to check Spanish lagoon, too. Here's a video. http://vimeo.com/58909068. There a recently sunk boat at Mangel Halto in about 60 feet of water. Have fun!

    Cool! I also saw there is two plane wrecks near the Sonesta Beach Hotel, purposely sunk in 70 to 90 feet of water.

    Will see how deep I can go this time, last trip I was limited to 70ft because I had trouble adjusting my ears. But at 80-100ft I would probably just have time to go down, barely take a picture and move up to get some new air.

    Appreciated.

    You are referring to the plane wrecks off Renaissance Private island. The name changed from Sonesta several years ago. If you can get on the private island, the plane is very reachable from shore. Otherwise you will need a boat to get there. Looking forward to seeing your pictures on here!
