Owner description: Using our underwater scooters, we can show anyone from beginners to experienced snorkelers a fun and unique way to discover the best day and night 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 rage 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.

My husband and I went on the most fantastic snorkeling adventure while our ship was in port last week. Aruba Bob's adventure was the absolute BEST snorkeling. He picked us up after the ship docked and took us to his shop. His daughter, Kiera, prepared us for the the snorkeling. The water temperature was 76 degrees so we did opt... More

3 of us snorkeled with Aruba Bob Snorkeling. We were on a cruise, they picked us up right near the cruise ship and brought us back afterwards. Staff were all great. Very friendly and made us all feel comfortable about the experience. Equipment was great, good instruction, and they even send you a ton of pictures they take during your... More

These guys have the best guided snorkeling trip ever. The trip is more like scuba diving and a ton of fun. You can get really close to the fish, coral, and animal life. The guides area amazing and make the trip the best on the island.

I've gone out by myself to snorkel on a few occasions but always make sure I book at least one trip with Aruba Bob and crew every time I'm in Aruba (which is every year!). #1 their equipment is great (hotel's gear is terrible and who can fit a snorkel in their luggage on top of everything else) #2 Mangel...

My family booked a tour with Aruba Bobs and the day we went, our guide, Stuart informed us that the water was a bit choppy. He actually took us to the beach to see for ourselves. It was way out of our comfort zone and he rebooked us a few days later. He spent at least an hour with us... More

This was our second time in Aruba. Both times I booked a night and day snorkel trip with Aruba Bob. We went snorkeling by ourselves at the public beaches but it's not the same as going out farther with a guide. We saw lots of colorful fish, choral and creatures during the day. Plus we saw lobster and shrimp at... More

We had a great time snorkeling, Stuart took all the pictures so we could really enjoy the experience and not try to capture the moment, Stuart captured it for us. They are not all about the money they are about making your snorkeling experience the best and memorable. They were personable and we actually help surprise Bob's daughter for her... More

my husband and I did a private snorkel primarily because we thought we might slow down the group and had a wonderful time. The "scooters" we're amazing. Stuart was our guide and he was very professional and fun, and a whiz with the underwater camera. We have some excellent pictures that we look at often.
