Easily booked with Captain Rene via email a few days in advance. He collected us right on time at the Marriott beach where we stayed. My family and I enjoyed the best rum punch in Aruba. Captain Rene provided clean snorkeling gear and proceeded to show us a few of the different types of reefs Aruba has to offer. He... More

We took this private snorkeling tour with Captain Rene and we had a great time. Rene is a very nice guy and very knowledgeable about the Island. We did three snorkeling stops at three different sites which was very nice. Between snorkeling we got served Drinks which was great. At the end, Rene dropped us back at the low rise... More

Everything about the trip was great. Captain Rene is extremely friendly, knowledgable, and helpful so you can take full advantage of the time in the water and then he leaves you to enjoy yourself! It's all about the snorkeling. He knew where we could go based on the weather and we avoided all the other party boat sites, a real... More

Had a great time and captain Rene was great... Even offered my wife his lunch when she wasn't feeling so great! The rest of us had some punch which was an added bonus! The snorkeling was beautiful and he never rushed anyone and was very knowledgable of the sites and Aruba in general.. Thanks again!

We took a private snorkel with Captain Renee. The pickup point was at Moomba Beach where parking is plentiful. Sometimes Captain Renee may be running behind... just email him and he will quickly respond back. We went to three snorkeling spots, the first was the Antilla shipwreck, Boca Catalina and German U-Boat wreck. Captain Renee is very knowledgeable and safety... More

The best snorkeling tour we have been on. My boys agreed. We did private outing, were picked up right on the beach at the Hotel. Captain Rene was very friendly, knowledgeable about island history and helpful. Being able to drift dive made it easy and being able to snorkel wrecks in shallow water was a treat. Saw many varieties of... More
