Captain Rene is fantastic! My husband and I and our two children (11 and 13) booked a 2 hr private snorkeling trip. It was well worth the money! We had only snorkeled once before and Captain Rene was very patient and knowledgeable and helped us with all of our questions. He made us feel very comfortable, even while exploring the... More

Everything people have written is true. Captain Rene runs a tight ship, and does his best to show you a great snorkeling trip. Given the reviews, I booked 2 trips for the family (4). We were brought to some very good locations with plenty of marine life and things to see. The good spots do get crowded with other boats,... More

Very friendly and overall an experience that I am glad we did. I would do it again though I would try to spend more time at the shipwreck if possible.

Just like all the other reviewers, we had a great time with Captain Rene. We have been to Aruba before and gone snorkeling on the big boats full of people. It was SO much nicer to go on a private tour with just my family. Captain Rene takes great care of his passengers, the boat is in good repair, and... More

After reading many reviews on Trip Advisor, I decided to book the private snorkeling tour with Captain Rene, and I am so happy I did. My husband and I hadn't snorkeled in years and my kids had never done it. Captain Rene explained everything to all of us. Before we knew it, we were snorkeling like pros. He told us... More

We experienced really great snorkeling with Capt. Rene. We saw a beatiful reef and two wrecks. He was very informative about the area while traveling. The punch was tasty as well. Chuck Carlson Arroyo Grande, CA

Capt. Rene is the best. It was actually cheaper per person to book a private snorkeling tour with him than it was to go on one of those booze cruises, which we weren't that interested in anyway. He took us to the same spots, but shooed the booze cruises away ... no kidding! We had the places to ourselves! He's... More

I found out about Captain Rene and his private snorkeling trip on Trip Advisor. We've been to Aruba 5 times now and have snorkeled before. This trip, we really wanted to take our 5 year old daughter and 9 year old son out to snorkel for their first time. This private tour was perfect! We were picked up right on... More

Easily booked with Captain Rene via email a few days in advance. He collected us right on time at the Marriott beach where we stayed. My family and I enjoyed the best rum punch in Aruba. Captain Rene provided clean snorkeling gear and proceeded to show us a few of the different types of reefs Aruba has to offer. He... More
