These types of experiences are always my favorite and allow you to see other areas of the island. Big ship, good lunch buffet, fun crew, descent snorkeling equipment, and the sunken ship were the highlights. I do wish they had served beer (apparently that’s for later cruises and we did a morning cruise) but the open bar was typical, filled with beachy drinks (open bar). Note, if you need transportation that is extra but it was cheap like 5 dollars a person (should just be rolled into the cost). We stood around for quite some time waiting to board. I have a bum foot so it would have been nice to be able to board or have somewhere to sit. Once on board everything went pretty smoothly with a descent amount of time at each stop. I’d participate again.

We are a family of 4 with two 20-something daughters who wanted to do a Catamaran Tour. So before coming to Aruba, I researched them all & chose Red Sail Luncheon Snorkel & Sail Tour. We were not disappointed - we had a great time with Captain Ozzie & Crew Randy & Brian. Because of COVID, they are operating with smaller numbers on the boat but we absolutely loved this personal attention! We had three snorkel stops & the best one was snorkeling over the sunken ship, the Antilles. Randy led the strong swimmers all the way out to the end of the 440 foot boat & back - that was our highlight of the trip! They also served a great lunch! But most importantly & why you should book this trip is that the crew made it so fun & personal & the catamaran Roomba is a beautiful boat! So don’t hesitate & book this tour today, you wil be glad you did!

Hats off to this great experience. We went after a couple days of rain so we knew the water visibility wouldn't be as great. And to be honest the reefs that I saw in Aruba have been in horrible shape. So dont go expecting marine park level reefs. But that's all outside of the crew's control. What they did control they knocked it out of the park! It was a smaller guest size than some of the other boats on the water and with covid I really appreciated it. They gave great safety instructions and positioned the boat to act as a break to the choppy water. Best of all they were approachable and quick to answer any questions customers had. So remember to ask the staff if you need help with your snorkelling gear.

It was such a relaxed and fun setting and a great way to finish off our trip. When I go back to Aruba I am definitely booking again with Red Sail!

Hello ! 2021 started indeed with a few hort showers and that did had it's affects on the visibility. We do our best to provide everyone with sufficient space by limiting the capacity with 55%. Also we have introduced additional measures such a temperature checks, extra hand sanitizers and more frequent cleaning of touch points. We're glad that you had a great time with us and hope to welcome you again later this year. All the best and stay well.

My family had a great time on this trip. The drinks were flowing and good music was playing. They started the trip with fresh fruit. Then brought us cheese empanadas. The lunch buffet was very good as well. Snorkeling was fun as well and if you didn’t want to snorkel you had plenty of room to bask in the sun.

Our only complaint is that we paid the additional fee for round trip transportation and the driver never came back to get us. We waited for nearly an hour in the hot sun before we decided to walk to the main road to get a taxi. I would have given it 4 stars if it wasn’t for that.

Had an amazing time aboard the catamaran where we were taken to three separate spots to snorkel and swim. The first stop was to watch the beautiful sea turtles feast on the bottom of the ocean and then gracefully fly through the water to snag a breath of air. There were really no fish at this spot but the turtles alone were worth the hop in the water. The second spot was a sunken ship. Pretty cool but the last spot was the best from a fishy standpoint. We got caught up in a school of thousands of minnows which was amazing! So many minnows that you couldn't see the ocean floor. After that, lunch was fabulous! Caribbean fish and chicken over rice and salad. Great trip and highly recommend! Don't forget to bring a little cash for tipping the crew on the way out. I forgot and had to go back to the Hilton where we were staying as they were totally worthy of the extra effort on my part!

We had an amazing time! This was easily one of our favorite part of our vacation. The boat was the perfect amount of people (20-25) and clean. They took us to 3 different snorkel areas, one being a ship wreck. They provided snorkel equipment that was easy to use. They also had an open bar and lunch which were pretty good also. We had opt of this one because we did not want it to be super packed with people. They also had great fun music. The crew was friendly and we always felt safe. If we swam too far they’d quickly get our attention and let us know. There was lots of fish in the sea and was so fun!

Great experience for us! Randy, Gerald, and JP made this one of the highlights of our trip! The boat was clean and they maintained the safety protocols when the other boats definitely looked like they weren’t... We were thrilled with the lunch and snorkel trip. We made 3 stops when most of the other catamarans only stop at 2 locations. Drinks were tasty and the food was actually amazing. I need the recipe for their grouper dish and cheese pastechi/empanadas. :) They were attentive to the guests with children and guests that needed more help. We appreciated that they let us do our own thing and didn’t require us to wear life vests in the water. And there’s even a slide on the back of the boat! Such a fun day! We will be recommending them to everyone we know and will be back soon to check out their sunset trip!

Overall, I would recommend this, especially if you are an infrequent snorkeler. The crew was great and very friendly. I saw interesting fish at each stop as well as turtles. The lunch was good with plenty of choice (chicken, fish and pasta); I loved the red beans and rice. The drinks were good and the bartender was great at coming up with new mixtures (Give me something tropical!) and the drinks weren't watered down like other cruises, though i would not classify this as a booze cruise. I did see that on other ships, where they would stop and only a handful of people got in the water while the rest drank, but not this one.

If i had one piece of advice it would be to turn down the music. it was really loud, especially if you wanted to be in the body of the ship since that's where the speakers were.

On our family’s recent vacation in Aruba we had a blast on our 4 hour Catamaran Lunch Sail. The crew was fun, friendly and superbly nice. The boat and equipment was very clean. They were attentive to all snorkelers and even got in the water to help folks. We had a great experience and would definitely do it again. We’d highly recommend RedSail Aruba.

We booked the morning 4 hour sail & snorkel cruise. The check-in process was easy. The boat staff did an excellent job of providing directions regarding g the boat and trip. The first two snorkel spots were good with a variety of fish and corals plus the wreck was impressive. The last spot was fair, but in a protected area for lunch. Food was excellent and open bar was open throughout to drink as much as you want. The crew were very friendly.

Overall, it was a good time and good value. I am going to book this trip for my son’s honeymoon in a couple months.
