Be welcomed aboard a luxury catamaran for a half-day cruise in the clear Caribbean Sea. 

An entertaining crew is always on hand to ensure a pleasurable sailing experience that includes tropical music, dancing, and storytelling. Relax on two sunbathing nets and enjoy plenty of seating aboard the spacious boat.

Your first snorkeling stop is shallow Catalina Bay, ideal for beginners or those who need time to practice using the snorkel equipment—instruction included. A swimming ladder and fun waterslide make it easy for passengers to get into the water. View colorful fish and corals in their growing stages before continuing on to one of Aruba’s most famous shipwreck sites: the SS Antilla.

Learn about the fate of this World War ll German freighter, whose mostly intact 400-foot-long (122-meter) body is now surrounded by sea anemones, tube sponges, coral formations and fish including parrotfish, angelfish, southern stingrays, yellowtail snapper, queen flounder, trumpet fish, and more.

A deli-style lunch and fully stocked open bar are included, and your attentive crew keeps a watchful eye out for empty cocktail glasses before you’re returned to shore.

Completely disinterested crew
drbpetty

My family enjoys snorkeling and we have booked snorkel excursions all over the globe including Crete and Mexico. I read some reviews that indicated the staff on this tour was not energetic or enthusiastic. I didn’t think that was a big deal and wanted a tour on a catamaran rather than a motorized boat without sails. Unfortunately the prior reviews understated the lack of engagement by this crew. There appeared to be 5 crew members on our trip yet none of them engaged with any of the customers other than to provide the scripted instructions required. When ordering drinks at the bar you had to wait for them to finish chatting with each other before they would even take your drink order. It isn’t like they were not having a good time. They appeared to be having a great time just not with their paying customers. The upside is that we felt no need to tip them as we normally would.

Lots of fun.

The key to these excursions are the crew and the location where we snorkel. In both instances the crew and the location were excellent. The crew was very friendly, gave lots to drink and eat. They did a great job sailing us to three snorkeling spots. They had plenty of equipment for all on board and offered good instructions on where to snorkel once the ship stopped. We thoroughly enjoyed the entire trip.

What a great excursion. Well worth...

What a great excursion. Well worth the money. My wife, 18, 15 and 13 year olds had a great time and we were able to see a lot at the three different locations. Food was really good and plenty for all. All in all, we had about 20 passengers. Other excursions that I saw on our day had 30, so I liked the smaller numbers, but that may vary. The crew was fun and very attentive. One passenger needed help and the captain jumped to help. The sunken ship location, on our day, was very windy and the waves and current were stronger we were in 60 ft. of water at that location, so this may be harder for beginners, but doable. The other two locations were in about 8 to 12 feet of water, calm and near the shoreline/beaches, which is very good for beginners. There are life vests available too, along with the other gear.

Was not happy at all with this activity. Crew was unfriendly and grouchy. Food was horrible. Not a lunch at all, went around with acouple trays of snacks. I went on the same snorkel and lunch with ANOTHER COMPANY 10 months prior to this. I was unable to get that on the days we were staying this time. The other company had a crew that were happy, food was great. I guess the people that reviewed this had not been on any other lunch snorkels in Aruba to compare them with. The only thing positive I can say is they picked up on time and returned us back to our hotel without delay.

The crew were amazing! The catamaran...
Lauren L
, Jul 2016
The crew were amazing! The catamaran takes you to 3 snorkeling spots and provide all the gear you need! There is not ample shade from the sun so bring a lot of sunscreen. There were a lot of kids on my tour which kind of prohibited the adults from having a real party but none the less drinks were pouring non stop! The lunch is very minimal so do not count on it filling you up- I advise you eat breakfast because you wait for about 30 minutes to board and then another 3 hours before they offer food. Overall it was awesome definitely would do it again!
