This half-day Aruba Palm Pleasure Snorkel Adventure kicks off with hotel pick up, followed by a scenic sea cruise aboard a 70-foot catamaran. Kick back and relax as your professional crew transports you across stunning blue waters while you soak up sun and sip on strong tropical cocktails. Spend time at various snorkeling sites, which include the coral-laden Antilla Shipwreck, Boca Catalina, and the Arashi reef. 

Travelers can opt to snorkel, or upgrade to a SNUBA package. This hybrid of snorkeling and SCUBA allows you to breathe easily underwater without wearing heavy gear.

Regardless of which underwater option you choose, this day of fun and sun is guaranteed to be enjoyable, thanks to a savory on-board lunch prepared by top chefs and an open bar, too. Please note: passengers arriving to Aruba on cruise ship cannot book this tour

Beyond my expectations
Sheila_M
, May 2022
Albert, the captain, and the crew were wonderful. They knew that I had never been snorkeling before and that I am a bit older. Albert - the captain - took me out on all 3 snorkeling trips himself and was very kind and patient! I just can't say enough. I saw so much - so many different fish and sea turtles. With Albert taking me under his wing - it freed up my friend to explore independently since she is experienced with snorkling. It was well beyond my expectations! The drinks were flowing and the food for lunch was great. The crew seemed to genuinely be having fun and took greqat care of all of us! Wonderful experience. Highly recommend!

Lunch was amazing, great snorkeling too!
KaylaW
, May 2022
Loved it! The snorkeling options were great, first saw sea turtles, then the shipwreck, then a calm area with tons of fish! The shipwreck was a bit crowded, as expected, but really neat to see. Tons of different fish there if you took the time to explore. The lunch provided was amazing. Salad, fruit, rice, chicken and fish cooked authentic. One of our favorite meals of the trip. I would say maybe not for first time snorkeling folks as it’s a bigger group so there isn’t much instruction on how to snorkel, although I have snorkeled a ton so I didn’t need to ask, I’m sure if you asked the crew they would instruct as they were very helpful.

Got canceled the day before we were supposed to go for mechanical issues. We contacted them about a refund, but got told to email somewhere else. We did that but haven’t gotten a refund yet.

I hated the extremely loud music!
george_c
, Apr 2022
The extremely loud 70s music and the drunken people ruined the whole experience. You want to see and enjoy marine life, but instead - half the time you are on the boat - night club scene, very loud music, and a lot of drunk people. I couldn't wait for it to be over.

Rachael_J

This was one of the most exciting things my husband and I have ever done! Highly recommend, it was also our first time snorkeling and we got to snorkel with sea turtles, swim over a shipwreck, learn about the history of the island and the shipwreck, and swim over a coral reef. The guides were very helpful and very informative as well as kept us on a good schedule so we knew how much time we had. Will absolutely go back in the future!
