Walking the ocean floor was priceless . Seeing the tropical fish up close was so exciting . Tour guides wear great . They were extremely careful of our safety and making sure we were comfortable.

The buffet was really fresh and had a variety of foods. The staff was friendly and there were minimal lines. Snorkeling was a family favorite with lots of colorful fish and they provide all of the equipment. Didn’t see the zip line. Fresh water showers to rinse off and can take photos with the flamingos. Highly recommend.

A great experience. We added the Cabana package which was wonderful. To have shade, refrig, towels, plenty of room, champagne. The snorkeling was wonderful. Plenty of fish. Coral is coming back. Water so warm and clear. Easy access into and out of water. Our 18, 19, and 22 yo girls loved the water slide. They were so busy they forgot about banana boats. Zip line has been taken out. Food was plentiful, drinks good. Hamburgers and fries really good. 71 and 76 yo grandmothers loved the snorkeling too. Check in was fast and polite. Boat to and from island was comfortable and available. No waiting. Again very polite staff. Will do again when back in Aruba, especially with first time visitors. And definitely with cabana. worth the $250 extra. We came in our rental car so did not use buses from hotel.'' Thank you DePalm Island for a great time.

We enjoyed the day at De Palm. A lot to do. It wasn’t very busy so felt quieter and very relaxed. Took some pictures by the Flamingos. The water slides were fun. Enjoyed a banana boat ride. So much all included.

Blue Parrotfish at De Palm Island

Snorkeling trips, right off the beach at De Palm Island, give big payoff, with views of abundant underwater life within the snorkeling area. Of particular interest are the native blue parrotfish, found in most of the Caribbean but particularly in Aruba. This vibrant blue fish makes for excellent underwater photo ops.
