A great dive, not just because of the Debbie II wreck but because of ample brain coral and schools of barracuda patrolling the area.

Had never seen so many starfish!

My family and I make a boat trip and the stop here was really great. Saw some great fish and starfish. The water was great and beautiful.

I may just be a snorkel snob now having gone in Bora Bora, the Bahamas, and Grand Cayman...but my husband and I walked from the Marriott Stellaris in the early afternoon. We had already gone on a snorkel tour with Jolly Pirates and just wanted to try to find a sea turtle. There were only a few others there who... More

Ok dive. Visability was about 50 feet. We did see a sea turtle and some fish. Shallow dive site we did after the Antilla.

We have snorkeled here on our own before, but this year we snorkeled off the Delphi Catamaran. It was fun both times. Lots to see. Morning seems to be the best.

Nice area for snorkeling, especially a bit closer to shore where we saw a wide variety of fish. The visibility in the water is great and the weather was beautiful, so it made for a great experience.

We rented a house across the road and this area was always full of boats out on snorkeling excursions. Bring bread or hamburger meat for the fish and they'll surround you (especially the yellow and black striped ones). My favorite place is just behind and to the left (if looking from the road) Ocean 105. There's a perfectly sandy spot... More

we have snorkeled this area many times and there are always plenty of fish and coral to entertain you. The weather is perfect all day but mornings are better for clarity. Highly recommend this as a part of your trip to Aruba

Great place to snorkel between Malmok and Arashi Beach. All the tours go there. Rocky so, be careful where you step.
