Using our underwater scooters, we can show anyone from beginners to experienced snorkelers a fun and unique way to discover the best snorkeling Aruba has to offer. We snorkel off the beach in an area called Mangle Halto. It is by far the best coral and marine life on the island. Your group sizes can range anywhere from 1 person to 8 people, although we can can accommodate larger groups during certain times. Please email for further information on larger groups. For more information please read our FAQ page on our website.

We have snorkeled previously, but we have never seen so much and had as much fun as we did on this trip. Stuart picked us up right on time at our hotel and engaged in interesting and entertaining discussion with us about life in Aruba. We met with another couple, and then the five of us went snorkeling at Mangel... More

When we arrived from our cruise ship we went right to where we were told to go and there was Stuart waiting for us. The tour was fantastic. He went well above and beyond what was expected. The water didn't cooperate well with us that day and Stuart did offer a refund. We didn't take that because he did everything... More

My husband and I took our 7 yo who has never snorkled before over spring break. Stewart made her first experience wonderful! Be prepared though. If you've only been in smooth water Before this experience is much rougher but the sights are worth it!

We booked a private tour with Stuart at Aruba Bob and had the most amazing time! Stuart picked us up and dropped us off at our hotel, and was a stellar advocate for Aruba in general. He's super friendly, totally laid back, and in general just an awesome guy. The snorkeling with the scooter was a neat way to get... More

This was our first trip to Aruba and initially did not plan on snorkeling on this trip. We had snorkeled in Hawaii and St. Johns and on cruises in the past so thought we might skip out this time. We had a group of 7 which included me and my wife and sons ages(9, 13, and 15) along with our... More

We have gone on many snorkeling tours in the Caribbean and the U.S., and Aruba Bob`s is hands down the best experience yet. Stuart was an exceptional guide and the scooters that we used were a blast. This was definitely one of the highlights of our Aruba trip. Aruba Bob's is a great way to make memories that will last... More

My first adventure with Stuart and Kent was in 2012. I just had my second adventure with Stuart and I can guarantee I will be going again the next time I visit Aruba! This time my niece and I went out with just Stuart and 2 other ladies. Stuart made sure that everyone was comfortable with the snorkleing equipment and... More

Had a great experience snorkel touring with “Aruba Bob” this past weekend. To begin with, Kent (aka Aruba Bob), Kyra and Stuart are three of the friendliest and most customer-focused people you’ll ever meet. They sincerely want the snorkeling experience to be an enjoyed lasting memory talked about for years to come. The experience begins with a warm welcome to... More

We just returned from Aruba, and this is the first review we will do of our trip, since we had such a great time snorkelling with Aruba Bob. Our family, which includes a 17 year old and a 13 year old, were picked up at our hotel by Stuart, who brought us to the shop where we were fitted with... More

The 3rd trip was even better than our first two several years ago. We took a private tour for four adults and our 15 year old granddaughter who had never snorkeled before. The new machines are even more user friendly. Most of all, the staff is both protective and fun to snorkel with. We would go again on our next... More
