We wanted to do the snorkeling highlights without being on a crowded boat. It was a perfect day!! Having the boat to just our group and the very pleasant captain made for a great time. We went to the two main sites every other (severely overcrowded) boat was at but he managed to time it so weren't even swimming in... More

BEWARE!!.Carnival Cruise may be late.. We signed up for Jolly Pirates Snorkeling in Aruba to catch their 2 pm tour. Our Cruise ship (Valor) was an hour late getting into port and we missed the tour. KAT (our Taxi driver) said Carnival is notorious for being late... so we relaxed on the beach until Jolly Pirates sunset cruise. They put... More

Capt Rene takes you to all the same spots the bigger boats go, but a lot more personal. On and off his boat fast. If you prefer the larger party boats this is not the trip for you. Uitstekend !

We had a great snorkeling experience with Captain Fabian from Private Snorkeling Aruba ! We had gone on a group snorkel trip when we visited Aruba 5 years ago. We didn't want to go back to the same spots with a boat full of people with varying levels of experience. Captain Fabian was very informative and offered many snorkeling options... More

Our trip with Captain Renee was the best ever. The snorkeling was fantastic. He took us to spots that weren't crowded and had an abundance of fish. He timed our visit to the shipwreck so that we were the only ones there. I've done a lot of snorkel trips and this was the very best. A great value and experience.... More

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
