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.

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

we snorkeled at mango halto it was an interesting experience. Overall it was a great trip and I highly recommend it. Some of the areas feel very shallow and narrow but the fish and coral are amazing. The water scooter are nice but my hand got very sore. Strengthen those muscles and you will have a great time. They also... More

We reserved a private tour but it was so incredibly windy that day, Stuart suggested we - being beginners - reschedule if possible, since he wasn't comfortable taking us to the best viewing area. We did and it turned out to be the absolute highlight of our week in Aruba!

A) Private tour instead of going on a boat with 50 "friends" B) Scooters that are easy and fun to use. Allowed us to cover much more of the reef than we could have done swimming ourselves. We were able to snorkel much longer than when swimming. May have spoiled me for future snorkels without a scooter. C) There were... More

Our family, which included my husband and I and our two 11 and 10 year old boys, just recently completed our private snorkel excursion with Stuart and could not have been more pleased. They picked us up at our hotel on time and were extremely patient with all of us. They provided excellent snorkel gear and guided us through the... More
