Mangel Halto Barrier Reef is an excellent spot for a guided snorkeling tour. Our guides will take you out to the edge of this amazing reef to behold such fish as parrot fish, yellowtail snapper, sergeant majors and blue tangs as well as deep water gorgonians, sponges and anemones. The reef is also home to an incredible variety of coral.

We had a blast! It was fun to watch some of our group flip their kayak a couple of times. Forthcoming they teach you what to do in advance of that happens! We kayaked for a while (it was a bit tough against the tide) then got out and snorkeled for a while. The waves were a bit rough in one area but we got passed there to a calmer reef which had lots of nice fish. The guides were great! Then we kayaked back (easier with the tide).
SO I had an unpleasant kayak experience recently and was skeptical about giving it another go. We signed up for this activity, but once I got into the boat I was done. I didn't have the nerve to continue. Our guide was smooth and co operative and willing to help. We chose to drive to an areas where we could snorkel that was close to the reef we were originally scheduled to visit. We spent a short amount of time snorkeling and then called it a day.
Throughout this experience, the guides and our driver Carlos were flexible and accommodating to our changes and needs. They didn't miss a beat and were professional throughout. Since we were finished well before we were scheduled for our prepaid lunch, Carlos drove us around that part of the island and provided a colorful discourse on some of the area. A lot of fun learning about a place from a man who has grown up there!
Thanks! The kayak and snorkel guides, and the driver were great! We had a lot of fun and the water was beautiful.
Our kayak tour takes you kayaking thru the beautiful Spanish Lagoon. The guides take you personally snorkeling out on the barrier reef at Mangel Halto which is the best reef snorkeling in Aruba. The tour includes lunch at our National Brewery before bringing you back to your hotel/ship/villa. There is a person touch with our tour that has been bringing us repeats and referrals for years. The location that we explore and the natural beauty that you are going to see above and below the water will make you an instant repeat client.
