Clive is great! Between the two of us, we dove 5 times (10 tanks). Clive was personable and very attentive, as was his son, Mark. LONG dive times (about 45 minutes to an hour each). Dives were to a variety of wrecks and reefs teeming with lots of fish and a variety of coral formations. Two fabulous drift dives. Clive's boat accommodates only 7 divers so the experience is very personal. We never felt rushed or like cattle as we sometimes have with some of the larger boats.

I dived with Clive and his son back in the summer. He operatesca nice laid back operation but ensurescsafe diving. Dive times werevgenerally limited by your air consumption and many dives were over tne hour. Whilst other dive operators hassle you to conform to strict times clive just goes with the flow. When diving the utilla we went through the ship and i believe he is tne only operstot to do so. I cannot recommend clive and his son mark enough, great operation and even better diving in a great location.

Just returned from vacation where I dove two days with Clive. Can\'t say enough about Clive and his son Mark. What a great time. Long dive times and the best spots. We had several others who came on with us after cancelling with other companies that forced them to come up with over 1500 psi left in their tanks. Once again, thanks Clive for a great time and can\'t wait to come back down.

Just finished 5 days of diving with Clive and Mark. Easy going, chilled out diving. It felt like we were diving together as a small group of friends rather than a dive guide/client relationship. Good bottom times and allowed to get the most out of our air rather than diving to a tight schedule. Definately the way to dive.

My daughter and I dove with Clive a couple of weeks ago in late July. I would highly recommend Clive to anyone looking to dive in Aruba. He's very professional and takes care of everything. Of course it did not hurt that my daughter thought that Clive's son was nice looking! When my family comes back to Aruba, we'll Dive with Clive.

I have dived with Clive probably 6-8 weeks over the last few years. Always a good time and the kind of diving I like. I have over 500 dives and do not like to be herded on a cattle boat. Clive takes you to beautiful spots and gives you time to dive the way you like.

I was in Aruba in mid August, 2012 and did a resort dive course with Clive. I was certified many years ago so this was a refresher course for me, but my two sons (13 and 15) were diving for the first time. Clive was extremely thorough and patient with the instructions before we went out to dive. His gear was in perfect condition. He was a pleasure to be with, and my sons had a wonderful experience learning to dive for the first time. One of my sons had some trouble equalizing, as did I, but Clive was very patient and very attentive. In the end we were able to stay down for 40 minutes and had a great time. We felt extremely safe the whole time. I would highly recommend Clive and would use him again without a doubt.

Got a chance to dive with Clive and Mark on a recomendation by a friend. I have dove with many in Aruba but our trip to the Antilla and Blue reef was fantastic. I would highly sujest that in you are planning a trip to Aruba and hope to get in some good bottom time, give Clive a call. Thanks again Clive.

I just got my open water certification in August, and Clive took me out for my first Caribbean dive last Monday. It was an unforgettable experience. There were only 6 of us out for a 2-tank dive trip, and I was one of the least experienced divers. Our first dive took us to a wreck in about 90' -- the deepest I've been so far. I used air faster than the more experienced divers that were with us, but Clive helped me make the most of it, and got me back on the boat without interfering with the dive time of the others who had a lot more experience and wanted to extend their dives longer. With a little guidance from Clive, I was able to extend my bottom time on the second dive as long as everyone else. Every time I visit Aruba, I will definitely book dives with Clive. He and his assistant, Matt, made us all feel comfortable and welcome. And even though my first dive was shorter than it ought to have been because of my own air consumption, I was still down on the wreck longer than divers with the other guide company, who went down after us, and were loading back up on the boat even before this rookie ran low on air. Clive won't rush you, but will ensure you are safe and have a great experience. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!

Just returned from a week's diving in Aruba with Clive and Mark.They were great hosts and experienced divers.Their knowledge of the area and diving sites made my dives with them very rewarding.

We did three dives with Clive this week. He was very personable and gives you a great dive experience. His groups are small so you don't feel like you are in a cattle herd. Nice relaxed trip and you are not rushed so you get to see everything. I would highly recommend diving with Clive and would go again anytime.

Hi Clive and Mark Just got back to cold Sweden but the memories of great dives warms us. Had a really great time and wonderful dives. You made it so easy, everything was well organized. If we find our way back to Aruba you´ll be the one we go diving with. Regards Martina and Rickard

These days when a dive operator promises unlimited diving (max 60 mins) I go hmm...whats the catch here. But Clive kept his promise and we had some marvelous 18 dives where we were allowed to stay under the surface 60 minutes every time. Well yes, we could stay there for alonger but those locals dive with shorties and start to freeze :) I can truly recommend Dive Aruba and if you gonna go there, be sure to book your dives in advance. There is a reason why everybody wants to dive with Clive: The stroopf waffels!
