We booked Captain Renee for 3 hours on a snorkle sunset cruise for two. First off you can't beat his prices 200 for 2 hours and 75 for each extra hour that's very reasonable. This was our first trip to the island and Renee was very friendly. Which made for a comfortable trip. He kept the rum punch going the... More

He met us at Moomba Beach which was a short taxi ride from the port, loaded us onto the boat and we were off fairly quickly. We visited about four snorkeling sites where we saw a good number of fish as well as some reef areas that were not very healthy (bleaching?). We were at sites before the larger tour... More

I've been visiting Aruba once a year since 2010 and my visit isn't complete without going on a tour with Rene. He has managed to surprise me every time by taking me to different spots depending on the weather conditions. Not only is Rene a very friendly host who takes his time to make his guests feel comfortable, but he... More

Referred to Capt.Rene by a traveler whom we ran into prior to our trip. Everything they said was true! He was easy to communicate with, accommodating, and an amazing guide. The 2 hours flew by. He was informative about the island and each snorkel stop. It is just your group and the Captain on his small, nice boat. Much better... More

Capt. Rene was communicative, on time, friendly and an excellent tour guide. We had one novice in our group of four. He did an excellent job of making her comfortable in the water. I would highly recommend Capt. Rene if you are looking for personalized service. We have snorkeled in many places and Rene does an excellent job. Per my... More

We had a great time with Captain Rene! He took us to three spots, adjusted the stops so we could avoid the crowds from the big tour boats. Captain Rene was very good with the kids and made sure everyone had a great time!

We decided to go snorkeling with Capt. Renee based on previous reviews we had read and we were not disappointed. It was wonderful being with a small group and stopping at some great snorkeling areas. Plus Renée timed our stops so we are at the sites when most of the areas were free from the big boats. Plus Renée's special... More

The snorkeling was clear and beautiful. So many fish!!! The starfish were easy to find and beautiful! The captain was attentive, polite and... More

If you want a great snorkeling trip Captain Rene is the way to go! Three great stops with just you and your family, no crowds of other tourists swimming on top of you. Captain Rene is very friendly, let's you set your own pace and mixes one heck of a rum punch! By far the most enjoyable snorkel trip I... More

Delphi Watersports was absolutely great! When booking our para-sailing, Grace was so nice and accommodating as there were a few in our group who just wanted to go on the boat and watch the others in our group that were para-sailing. She gave us a convenient time that worked in our schedule. She even offered to have beach chairs set... More
