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

My husband and I were in Aruba for 1 day on a cruise ship. Before the cruise I did some research and found a private snorkeling trip with Capt. Rene. We booked a 3 hour trip on the phone with Rene and he followed up with a confirmation e-mail. We took a five minute taxi ride from the cruise ship... More

After reading all the positive reviews of Captain Rene's Snorkeling, we decided to go with him this past Wednesday (9/17). The price was fair, and although Rene did not end up taking us out, his business partner Captain Alex took us, we had a great time!! He met us on the dock at the Marriot Surf Club where we were...

We did a 2 hour tour with captain Rene. He was great. It was just my husband and I. My husband isn't the strongest swimmer and Rene was very patient and took the time to make sure he enjoyed himself and could experience the beautiful reefs. We went to 2 shallow reefs right off the shore and to the Antilla... More

The Catamaran is large & beautiful, well equipped to handle the tour group without feeling too congested. I was worried at first by the size of the group but I needn't have been. We brought some of our own gear but they provided mask, fins, snorkels & vests for everyone as needed. The crewman who took one look at your... More

Although snorkeling anywhere on Aruba is great, Boca Catalina is by far my favorite!! Saw two starfish this year along with shrimp, angelfish, squid, tigers and many others!!

Contacted Captain Rene and we were fortunate enough to book a couple of hours with him on August 11th. This was my wife and my second time snorkeling but the first time for our boys who are 14 and 16. We highly recommend Captain Rene. He provides personalized service and customizes the trip to your desire to move fast or... More

Two of us booked a snorkel cruise with Captain Rene--my wife was a first time snorkeler, and I have very limited experience. Captain Rene was great! He was patient and informative and made the experience one we will always remember. We had such an amazing snorkeling experience that we intend to book with him again. Why go on a crowded,... More
