Description:

Enjoy an afternoon sailing along Aruba's picturesque coast aboard a spacious 85ft teak pirate Schooner! Visit three great sites: Malmok, Boca Catalina and the WWII shipwreck, Antilla! You will be able to snorkel at two of the sites and at the third site you will be able to experience the thrilling rope swing!  Enjoy the open bar and a full-set of snorkeling gear.

Malmok Snorkeling Site

Snorkeling Aruba’s most shallow snorkel areas remarkably close to shoreline with interesting sea critters abound. And from the moment you enter the calm waters, you will swim Aruba´s turquoise paradise, equipped with mask, snorkel and fin, and feel almost a part of a different world. The residents of the tranquil, turquoise imbued world will curiously greet you.

Boca Catalina Snorkeling Site

Snorkelers have much to discover when taking a swim in Aruba’s Boca Catalina, a beginner snorkeler’s dream. Aruba and its snorkeling waters are shallow and protected coves offer clear visibility and calm, azure waters with comfortable depths for both advanced and beginner snorkelers alike. Here you will have the opportunity to swim in Aruba beside schools of yellow striped grunts and the colorful Sergeant, angel fish, bright green parrot fish, groupers as well as elk coral, brain coral and barrel sponges.

Shipwreck Antilla Snorkeling Site

Rich in History, the island’s greatest Aruba snorkeling site consistently garners international recognition as the Caribbean’s finest wreck dive. Sunk by its own Captain and Crew at the start of WWII- thus preventing it from falling into enemy hands—this 400 foot German Freighter significantly sits on the ocean floor in 60 feet of water in such a way that a portion of its hull and masts protrude impressively up and out of the sea. Snorkel Aruba waters to get close to this ship in the crystal clear quality of Aruba’s waters makes it a dream site for both divers and snorkelers. Under the watchful eyes of the expert crew, snorkeling close up to Aruba’s special ship, you will view the extraordinary coral -encrusted wreck, populated by awesome marine life which after so many years still calls the Antilla WWII Shipwreck its home.

Best excursion I've taken in 7 cruises. The crew of the ship was very entertaining, the snorkeling over the WWII shipwreck was great, although choppy water made it a challenge for some inexperienced snorkelers. Passengers swinging from the rope swing into the water was a blast. The only negative was that the tour operator didn't confirm the booking, but Viator called to follow up and got the confirmation for us. Highly recommended!

I brought my young adult men and two of their friends so we were a total of 7 people on the ship. The kids and adults had a great time - highly recommended!

Great fun for an afternoon. The drinks are OK, the snorkeling is the same spots, the Antilla ship wreck and the reef shore dive. It was fun to see people swinging on the side of the ship, lots of fun for families and kids. We enjoyed it.

Such a fun excursion! The crew was wonderful, drinks were perfect, snorkeling was awesome and the rope swing was the most fun I've had in a while. I would definitely do this again.

If your goal is just being on water and drinking your fill of watered down alcohol--you will like this. If for you the main event in the snorkeling trip is an hour spent giving customers the fun of using the rope to swing off the boat--this is the ship for you. If you want to snorkel, and expect to have an attentive crew give help and attention--not so much.

The crew didn't go out of their way to explain how to use the equipment or look out for passengers as they snorkeled. They seemed more interested in getting tips from the people on the trip. The ship wreck was pretty cool to explore but the second stop left alot to be desired. I wouldn't recommend this trip to anyone unless all they want to do is party.
