This operator has two meet-up options available. You can either meet at the departure point below or select a location for pick-up.

2:00 PM

Please arrive 1 hour before your selected start time for pickup. Your operator can coordinate exact time and location.

This activity will end right where it started.Pick-up will be in the lobby of the hotel.
Following pickup at your Aruba hotel in the late afternoon, transfer to the luxurious 70-foot (20-meter) catamaran and set sail on the turquoise sea.

Grab a drink from the open bar, then find a spot on the sundeck or in the shade of the cabin. Watch the coastline of Aruba recede as the boat heads out towards the SS Antilla, a German freighter that ran aground during WWII.

When you reach the wreck, slip on the provided mask, snorkel and flippers and jump in. Follow your knowledgable guide around the ship as they point out the many varieties of coral and native tropical fish that have made the sunken freighter their home.

After enjoying Aruba's underwater seascape and the boat's open bar, head back to land for drop-off at your hotel.

Optional Upgrade: 'Snuba' allows you to breathe easily underwater, but doesn't limit you to floating on the top. Follow a certified Snuba guide to a depth of 20 feet (six meters) for a dive. No snorkeling or scuba certification is needed.

Do the snuba!

Awesome experience, the snuba add on was well worth the cost and our guide was fantastic. As an additional benefit he took underwater pictures that we were able to purchase for a very nominal cost.

The sail back was very enjoyable. After snorkeling we headed out a little before turning south to return. It was just so relaxing and pleasant. The crew was very attentive throughout the tour. Boat was spotless and well maintained.

Happy Hour and Snuba was AWESOME
Vincent_S
, Jan 2021
The Palm Pleasure SNUBA and happy hour was the best experience we had while in Aruba. The guide makes the trip so upbeat and fun while getting everyone drinks. The SNUBA instructor was super patient with us and understanding of the various comfort levels to make it simple and well worth the upgrade. Don’t pass up the SNUBA upgrade.

No Snuba for us in Aruba
Cynthia_H
, Mar 2020
here's the deal. We paid for snuba. filled out a form at the concierge at our hotel. on the form, we checked that we had high b.p., even though we both take meds for it, so it's controlled. told by the concierge that we were fine. Got to the boat with our friends, to snuba together. Person at the boat would not let us snuba. Said we could only go if we had a note from our physician. Seriously? As we were getting on the boat? Embarrassing, disappointing, unnecessary. Better communication, of correct information, is recommended.
