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

Capt Rene met us on the beach. We emailed our reservation and he responded quickly. We did not want a tour with 50 people. He asked what we wanted to see, we asked to snorkel the Antilla and after that where Capt Rene suggested. We snorkeled Arashi reef, and then looked for sea stars. Capt Rene offered assistance to enter... More

If you want to spend very limited time in the water, with 100 other people, many of whom will kick you in the face....book a catamaran. If you want a genuinely personable, personal guide go with Cpt Rene. Felt special to be picked up and dropped off on the beach in front of the hotel. Loved being able to pick... More

We had an awesome 3 hr trip with Rene.....2 adults, 2 16 yr olds and an 11 year old. Rene picked up us right on the beach in front of our hotel (Marriott Surf Club). He took us to some great spots, avoiding the crowds from the big tours.......very enjoyable afternoon. I would totally recommend booking a trip with Rene... More

My husband and I booked this trip to snorkel and spend time on the water, seeing the shoreline and learning even more about the island from Captain Rene'. He is a wealth of information, very smart and made our trip so much fun. We have snorkeled in Aruba many times, but will be calling him again on our next trip... More

We were a party of three with two children ages 8 and 14. What a great tour we will never forget. Connecting with Captain Rene was easy. We called him and set the tour for the day after next. Capt Rene picked us up right in front of our hotel. We then went to two snorkeling spots where we saw... More

What a great day with Captain Rene. Our family had such a great time, 3 snorkle stops, starfish on our heads, shipwreck in crystal clear water! Just an amazing time with a great guide who treated us like family! Absolutely would recommend this to anyone who wants to stay away from the masses. If you like personalized excursions, this is...
