Booked Captain Rene's tour and it was the best tour we have been on. Six adults with two who had not snorkeled before. He avoided the large tour boats so we had areas by ourselves. Told us to take our time, we were able to go on our pace, as we heard the large boats whistle their groups in after... More

We had a great experience with Captain Rene even though our pick up time was delayed. We were able to visit 3 snorkel sites and a final site to dive for sea stars. Our pickup was delayed about 40 minutes due to issues he had with the coast guard. He did call us in our hotel room to tell us... More

Capt. Rene was very patient and helpful for being first time snorkelers. We did the sunset snorkeling and it was beautiful. Went to two sites, a reef and ship wreck. Saw other tours that were packed with people and we had our own private tour. Capt Rene is so nice he even drove us back to our resort after he... More

Going snorkeling with Captain Renee was a great experience. He picked us up right from the beach in front of our hotel. Jump in the boat & off you go. He provided all of the equipment needed & also had drinks for us (including his famous "Rum Punch!!"). He took us to two locations for snorkeling. Both were fantastic, private... More

We booked Captain Rene based on his incredible reviews on TA for Monday March 3. We confirmed as requested on March 1 when we arrived in Aruba. On March 3rd, we waited on the beach in front of the Marriott for 25 minutes. Finally someone offered us a cell and we called. Captain Rene answered and said he had boat... More

My sister and I booked a tour with Captain Rene and couldn't have been happier. This was one of our first times snorkeling and he was so patient with us. He explained everything and helped us with our snorkel gear. He kept the rum punch flowing, and it was delicious. He took us to three locations, the last one being... More

My husband Dan and I were looking for alternative to the party catamarans for a sunset cruise, and Captain Rene' delivered! He gave us a wonderful private tour with awesome rum punch and was an excellent tour guide as well. Captain Rene' pointed things out to us along the last of Aruba and offered to let us snorkel, but we... More

We had a blast snorkeling with Captain Rene in Aruba! There were only four people in our group...my husband, myself and our 2 friends so it was basically a private tour. Captain Rene took us to two different snorkeling spots that were wonderful....lots of fish and great reefs. He picked us up close to the Cruise Terminal which is really... More

Based on prior TripAdvisor reviews, we booked a two hour private snorkeling tour on the Rendezvous, piloted by Captain Rene, weeks in advance of our trip to Aruba. In our party of seven were two young boys, ages 7 and 11, who had no snorkeling experience. Captain Rene walked us all through the preparation, really encouraging the boys that they... More

We chose to use Captain Rene for a snorkeling trip based on Trip Advisor ratings and we were not disappointed! Our youngest son was a little nervous to try snorkeling so we thought a smaller atmosphere would be better for him. Captain Rene answered all of my emails promptly and explained everything in detail. Since our hotel beach (Divi Aruba)... More
