Bring your swimsuit, a towel, and sunscreen to the catamaran's departure point at Palm Beach pier.  Stop first at Catalina Bay, where the calm waters are an ideal learning ground for beginner snorkelers. After a short orientation and safety talk, don the provided snorkel gear and jump in to see the damselfish, parrotfish, angelfish, and native coral. Your guides are on hand to supervise and provide any assistance.  On the way to the Antilla wreck, refuel with the provided snacks and sip a drink from the open bar. When you arrive at one of the island’s most visited snorkeling spots, explore the huge German freighter that was purposefully sunk in Aruba’s waters in 1940. Learn more in-depth details about the history of the ship from the crew before diving in to check it out. The ship is now home to yellowtail snapper, moray eels, stingrays, and a variety of native coral. Afterwards, your captain takes you back to Palm Beach.

Great trip to two spots, first a shallow coral reef on the northwest on Aruba by Catalina beach. We able to float around and snorkel with fish and see coral. Very relaxing.
Next was deeper water (60 feet) to see the shipwreck off the western coast. Severe in the group saw turtles. We saw an eel, many larger blue and yellow fish. The shipwreck was very thrilling to see! My first peak underwater at that spot was such an amazing surprise!
The waves were bigger and the current stronger, I would recommend using the life vest here, I was glad I did. I could float and relax a bit more. The current was decently strong there and pushed you pretty far.
A few negatives: they offer appetizers but it’s only 3 bites (small fruit skewer, then a little chicken empanada, then a tiny puff pastry wrapper hot dog), open bar was fun with cocktails, mock tails and pop.
Great overall for the price and the experience is a must if you have a few days here.

The most unique snorkeling experience I’ve ever been on. Seeing a sunken ship just below you teeming with marine life is something that has to be seen to be believed. The boat was spacious and the crew was very friendly and helpful at all times, not to mention hilarious. The gear provided was of good quality and the water quality is some of the finest in the Caribbean. Highly recommend if you visit Aruba

I got my girlfriend, her family and my mom a surpised cantaean sail. Let me tell you all these guys made it womderful for us! If you really want to get on a cantamaran and snorkel GET THIS ONE!!! Literally, the food and drinks was delicious!! There was only about 15 people on the boat, so we had sooooo much room to kick back and relax with out Green Iguana drink ;) best!!!
We did 2 stops. And honestly the first stop was an easy snorkel. We got to see turtles and all types of coral and fish. The waves were super gentle for beginners.
Now on the Antilla shipwreck, thats another story lol (second stop) there you have a be a pretty darn good swimmer to push through. The waves and wind was no joke.
But I honestly gave it 5 stars because these guys actually went out of their way to help my mom and my girlfriends mom snorkel by swimming alongside with them! That I loved

Very fun and relaxing catamaran ride to two snorkeling locations! We saw lots of colorful fish at the first location. At the second location, a ship wreck, the water was deep and the visibility wasn’t great for snorkeling, but I saw a sea turtle and some big fish too deep to identify. The crew was so very kind and fun! I am gluten-free so I was provided delicious gluten-free snacks instead of the snacks given to everyone else. The alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks were plentiful throughout the trip. I would recommend this trip for anyone who likes to snorkel and enjoys boating.

So it was hard to pick which snorkel tour to go on. I chose this one based on reviews. But I must say the experience has allot to do with the other passengers. We had a smaller group… mixed with people of all ages, including a couple school aged kids (my son is 10). Although drinks were served the whole time everyone was appropriate.. No loud belligerent people.. People chatted and mingled.. a few small snacks were served.. (don’t substitute this for a meal). Two snorkeling spots. First one I did not care for. Water was a bit choppy. Couldn’t see the ship wreck.. water was darker.. definitely use the life jacket here even if ur a strong swimmer. Second spot was great!!! Very calm area.. water clear as could be. could see the bottom. Lots of fish. We did not use the life jackets here. My son is 10 .. a strong swimmer.. and I felt comfortable but stayed close to him. Both stops were not too long but long enough. Crew was helpful and fun. So it was a great experience overall for being out on a boat around this beautiful island with some snorkeling opportunity. If ur looking for hours of snorkeling this is not for you. Worth booking for a boat and snorkeling adventure.

The crew was so much fun. We essentially had a private experience with 3 other couples (normally they said 70 people are on board). The day was gorgeous. They helped keep us safe and still ensure the best time. The lunch was great and the snorkeling was soooo cool. Highly recommend for a fun day in the sun. Not something you could do on your own!

A 3 hour tour? More like a 3 hour nightmare...

If you want a deafening nightclub scene, a crew that couldn’t care less, and terrible and unsafe snorkeling, then this is the trip for you.

The crew was more concerned with getting their nasty girlfriends drunk and had no concern for the safety of the passengers. Blaring loud music the entire time- had to yell to talk to anyone. The drinks were watered down as awful and snacks were filler fruit and hot dogs wrapped in bread. Snorkeling at the wreck was super windy and wavy and unsafe. Visibility was about 10 feet. Most people got out of the water after 15 seconds. Second snorkel was marginally better, but dead coral everywhere and only a few fish. Ride back to the dock was yelling and super loud music with crew doing shots and pouring liquor into their girlfriends’ mouths. Drunk girls piloting the catamaran. Just awful. Skip this, rent a car, and check out the other awesome snorkeling sites on your own!

We did the luncheon snorkel and sail to antilla and catalina on Friday, April 30 and LOVED IT. This was our first time snorkeling and it was the perfect spot for it! Saw TONS of crazy-colored fish and coral. The ship was super cool too. It was not too packed - only about 15 people on the tour total YAY! The food was really good and the tour guides were so relaxed and I could tell they were having fun themselves. They told good stories and we loved hearing about their lives.

We really enjoyed our trip. We did the afternoon tour, which included 2 stops. All snorkel gear is included. The first stop was a reef off the coast in about 10 feet of water, very calm and clear visibility. The second stop was a shipwreck a little more in the open sea area, so you need to be a strong swimmer, and wear the life jackets provided. Definitely more waves at this location. Many people chose to stay on the boat for this stop, but I really liked seeing the sunken ship.

Super friendly and welcoming crew members with a great sense of humor. Duration of the trip is perfect, as the snorkel stop at Antilla is in pretty deep water and is easy to get fatigued pretty quickly after a couple of drinks from the open bar. Unforgettable experience, would recommend to anyone staying near Noord/Oranjestad!
