Clive is fantastic! He was very experienced, personable, and professional. I liked that he only accommodates a small number of divers and knows the area well. The other 5 divers were friendly and pleasant to meet. I based my choice of Clive on the great reviews he got on Trip Advisor and I'm so glad I did! Thanks Clive! I... More

We have about 40 ocean dives under our belts so we are comfortable in the water and still need a good guide. Clive, the owner and dive master, is friendly, knowledgeable, and planned our three dives to meet our expectations and comfort levels. We used his equipment which was in great shape and well cared for. The dives were all... More

I've gone with Clive before, and he didn't disappoint this trip. My first day of dives, I was the only one on the boat. My last day there were just 3 others on the boat, and we had an excellent time diving. Clive picks up right at the hotel, takes you out, knows how you dive, tailors the trip, and... More

Just returned from our trip to Aruba, where I did 5 dives with Clive and Dive Aruba. Before my trip, I did a lot of research on different dive outfits in Aruba on tripadvisor and contacted many of them by email to inquire about diving with them. Clive responded to my emails from the beginning and we corresponded numerous times... More

Clive provided a great diving experience. His smaller boat allowing for smaller groups made this a much more personal experience.

A very strong recommendation to use Clive if you are an EXPERIENCED diver. This is a great operation. Small and focused. One man band who knows the dive sites well and manages the whole operation very effectively. He is very experienced. Small groups means a better diving experience. He quickly assesses your ability and adapts his style accordingly. He respects... More

I dove two days with Clive at Dive Aruba recently on short vacation in Aruba. He picked great dive sites and Clive is very knowledgeable about the dive sites and diving. He has a lot of repeat divers and his boat is great for small group. I recommend Clive for diving in Aruba and would dive with him again.

Clive did it again. This is my third straight year diving with Dive Aruba, and I would never think of using anyone else. Clive runs a great operation, knows the best sites, and has lots of experience. I have been on the boat with divers from beginners to very experienced. Clive gives the right amount of attention to everyone. Experienced... More

Clive again made another diving experience for me easy going, fun, and top notch! Only this time I brought my boyfriend and 12 year old daughter who were brand new divers to finish up the open dives to be certified. It takes a lot of trust when dealing with loved ones, to watch them from afar. Clive was amazing with... More

Booked Clive based on other scuba reviews, and I wasn't disappointed! Clive has been diving Aruba the last three decades and brings a wealth of knowledge to share on each outing. He picked us up from low-rise area each day, provided light snack and juice between dives. Hope to return soon and dive with Clive again!
