North & East Coasts
Hundreds of thousands of years of continuous wind and waves have made these sides of the island rocky and rough. Shore diving is possible here however, if the conditions allow, but it’s not for inexperienced divers or the faint of heart. Brave divers might encounter large Barracudas, Reef sharks or even Hammerheads or Bullsharks. Enquire ahead if you are interested in a somewhat more challenging dive here.
A dive site of note on this side of the island: Cabez Reef
Before you jump of the rocky 3 mtr/10 ft ledge into the waves, you better make sure you haven’t forgotten about anything. However, all the preparations that go into this dive are worth it. The reef is spectacularly beautiful and full of life. This drift dive leads you past a diverse collection of hard and soft corals that most divers on Aruba never get to see. The exit is shallow. The max depth is around 20 mtr/65 ft. Experienced divers only, after check out dive on other dive site, assuming conditions are favorable (which leaves unfortunatly only a few days per year)
