Strea Charters?

Thinking about taking a cruise with Strea Charters. Can anyone tell me how to get to the dock where the Strea is from Playa Linda? Walking distance or is a cab needed?

The Playa Linda is on Palm beach and Strea departs from downtown Oranjestad. Definitely not walking distance. You would need to take a taxi. The fare would be $11 each way for a maximum of 5 people per taxi with a charge of an additional $3 each way on a Sunday or holiday. You can make the day cheaper by taking the bus back to the Playa Linda. The bus station is a short walk from the mooring.

Thank you so much! :)

I've heard some good things about Strea, so thinking I might like to give it a try.

We have been on the Strea several times. Actually one or two times each time we vacation in Aruba. John (the captain) is a fantastic guy. It is very relaxing and the snorkeling is perfect. John makes a great lunch and keeps the boat perfect. Not a big crowd. Definately a nice relaxing day that you don't want to miss:) Must mention that we have tried just about all of the snorkel cruizes so have a bunch to compare the Strea to.

If you do go tell John that "Joe and Tracy" said hello. We will be in aruba September 1 to 9 and hope to see him them!

Thanks snookums......definitely something we will look into. We kinda "been-there-done-that" with overly crowded sailing charters and are looking for a quiet & relaxing sail. This will definitely be added to our must-do list!!!! :)

For a quiet and relaxing sail, also look into Tranquilo. It is a sailboat vs. a "motor yacht". Tranquilo stays out longer.
