Captain provided excellent service. My wife and I wanted a relaxed snorkeling trip where we were not competing with others to get on and off the boat. He had plenty of drinks onboard and knew what time the large tours were going to get to the snorkeling places so we had them to ourselves. He helped with getting on and... More

We had a great time with Fabian- my first time snorkeling and Fabian was extremely patient. I only snorkeled the smooth surfaces while my boyfriend (who has experience snorkeling) did the shipwreck - overall we had a great time.

Two kids aged 11 and 12, my wife and I enjoyed a trip with Capt Rene to various snorkeling spots on Aruba. Fun to snorkel over Antilla WWII wreck before all the other folks show up. He knows what he is doing. Drank a lot of his Diet Coke--thanks, that was nice. Very concerned about our safety and comfort during... More

My wife and I booked a snorkeling trip with Rene and it was amazing. Rene planned the trip perfectly so that when we would pull into the snorkeling spot the larger tour groups were leaving so we had the area to ourselves unadulterated. We hit three spots on our trip, the reef near the California lighthouse, the MS antilla and... More

So far....Aruba is our favorite island in the Caribbean. This was a GREAT island to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. The beaches are absolutely breath taking and the people are more than just "friendly". Every where we went, people treated us like we were a resident of the island and not just another tourist. The food was GREAT and shopping... More

We went on a semi private 2hr with Capt. Rene which turned out to be just my husband and I but Rene did have a friend in from Amsterdam who came along too. Great company. The boat was an older style, but clean and maintained well. We brought our own snorkel stuff so I can't speak to that. The day... More

We found this on trip advisor, and boy did we have a great time! We went for my gf's birthday and we were treated like royalty from start to finish. Got picked up right on the beach in front of our hotel, and captain rene greeted us with amazing rum punch! Then he took us to some of the most... More

My wife and I along with 3 other couples went out on a excursion with Captain Rene. We all would highly recommend this boat and captain Rene. We arrived from our cruise ship at the dock early and were able to relax awhile at a local restaurant ( free wi-fi ) right on the beach until our trip was scheduled.... More

We booked this tour based on TripAdvisor reviews. Setting up the tour by e-mail was easy to do. We took a taxi from the port (5 people per taxi max at $14 per taxi) to Moomba beach. We had to find Capt Rene as we were a few minutes late due to the ship getting in late. Our 1st stop... More

My wife and I had a great time snorkeling with Fabian. This tour is highly recommended. It's an intimate experience versus a party boat. We snorkeled in multiple areas and received a history lesson as well. Float devices for weaker swimmers was a big plus! Thank you for the wonderful experience. Private Snorkeling is highly recommended.
