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.

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

Wonderful morning in Aruba on the turquoise sea
ICThruU
, Jul 2021
This was a wonderful morning. This is an A+ catamaran and the crew is friendly and fun. Can't say enough about Caesar, who was in charge . The food was really good, with fish and chicken and rice for lunch and small finger sandwiches for breakfast. The drinks were free flowing and really good. Anyone who complained about this in previous reviews.. well, they are wrong now - the bar was excellent! The snorkeling itself isn't the best I've done. The reefs are mostly white - a huge problem across the world... There were beautiful fish, but if you are going just for the snorkeling, this probably isn't the best. The wreck was very cool to swim over. However, we did see gorgeous fish, and had a really pleasurable time with the crew and other passengers. Good food, good drinks, great music, and beautiful scenery!

Fantastic morning on the water

We had so much fun. Beautiful morning, despite a little liquid sunshine. The crew was great. I do not snorkel very much, but the spots chosen were really good, especially the shipwreck. Even from the surface it was cool to see. Really enjoyed seeing the sea turtles as well. One surfaced very near me too. Thanks to the crew for a fun filled morning. It will be one of our favorite memories of Aruba. Much appreciated - "Boston"

I can't recommend this enough. This was probably the highlight of our trip. We absolutely loved this trip. Cesar was amazing. He is really good at what he does. The three stops were great. Loved the open bar and the food was really good.

Great snorkel trip

Great time, great crew, snorkel explanation done very well. The first stop at the shipwreck was in pretty deep water so if you didn’t want to go real deep (30’ - 40’ or more) you didn’t see as much as at the other two sites which were really cool! Food was excellent, and they even recycle the food waste! All in all, well worth the money.

This was our first excursion after landing in Aruba. At first w thought they may have oversold our tour. However, after we were off into the trip, it was quite comfortable. The guides were very fun and friendly. They provide a wonderful lunch that we all enjoyed, and the drinks were very good as well. We would recommend it to any family coming to the island.

The lunch was good and the drinks were flowing! However, there were too many people on the boat, and we were shoulder to shoulder for 90% of the ride.

Had a good time on the party boat

The atmosphere and energy was great, crew were awesome and the open bar was fantastic. It was more like a party boat which was fun. Only con is that the boat had like 80 people on it and it was super crowded. Just because you can go back to full capacity does not necessarily mean you should during COVID (esp in such a confined space). Overall the adventure was good and we had a great experience.
