Note that this review is not based on having tried the services this company offers; I didn't even make it that far. It's based on the horrible service — or lack of service. I created an account here to express how disappointed I am with this business. The facts: Per the company's instructions, I sent a scheduling request on the... More

My friend and I had a great time on a private trip with Rene. He took us to three unique spots that we could not have reached on our own. We went in the late afternoon and were the only ones there! We saw dozens of types of fish, beautiful coral and two shipwrecks. If you want a customized, private... More

We booked a semi-private mid-day snorkeling tour with Rene in mid-January, 2015. It turned out my wife and I were his only customers for that trip, so we ended up getting a private tour. Either way, $70/person seems like a very good value for the great time that we had. I'm not sure how long we were on the water,... More

This is the second time we have ventured out with Captain Rene and it was exactly as we remembered it. Initially there was a mixup with our date and time but Captain Rene was able to fix it and showed up right at our hotel beach. We brought towels and we ventured out to two new places to snorkel and... More

My family and I went on the 2 hour private snorkeling tour with Captain Rene. My parents hung out on the boat drinking rum punch while we snorkeled. It was really fun and we saw a lot of fish without any crowds of people. Captain Rene was so nice and it was one of the highlights of our trip!

We took a snorkeling trip with Captain Rene in Aruba. Great sights in shallow and deep water. We spent some time looking at the sunken ship wreck of the Antilles. Great value.

We had a great time with captain Rene. It was worth every dime we spent. He took us to some beautiful places with lots of wild life, he had a starfish contest, and we saw two sunken ships! I had never snorkels in sunken ships but it was really cool! At the end of the day we watched the sunset... More

Snorkeling the wreck of the Antilla was the most fascinating and fun event of our trip. It was made all the better by having a private charter, so our family could enjoy each other while we were exploring this wonderful piece of history. Captain Rene, who is a charming, adult and safety-conscious host, met us promptly at our scheduled time,... More

We had a fantastic 2hrs with captain Alex. The snorkeling was unlike anything we had previously experienced, the fish were so close, so numerous and varied. An add'l plus for us was due to the choppy waves on a esp. windy day, we didn't want to stay long at the shipwreck, so Ctn Alex was very flexible and took us... More

We returned to Aruba the week of October 9, 2014 and again booked private snorkeling excursions with Captain Renee. He, as usual, was reliable and showed us a great time! Once we went with his new associate Captain Alex and found him just as knowledgeable and knew all the great places to take us. The water was so clear one... More
