Wonderful excursion!
Jun 2021 • Couples
We had anticipated being pulled behind a sailboat, but the floating island turned out even better! We had privacy, a beautiful view, cooling winds, the sights and sounds of the busy shore in the distance, and Jose took care of anything we needed. Would definitely do again; the highlight of relaxation on our visit to Aruba.

Best day ever in Aruba!
You won't find this company on any of the "best things to do" list. We walked out onto the pier in front of our beautiful resort at The Marriott Palm Beach Surf. Saw this unique Donut Boat and searched them up!!! One of, if not the best excursions we have ever been on!!! Jose was the perfect instructor and keep watch on us while we commandeered our own private boat! He showed us exactly where to drop anchor and snorkel and made sure we had a blast!! We took the 3 hour tour and had windsurfers flying by us, party boats around us with great music, etc. These guys provided us with Bluetooth speakers, snorkeling equipment, and plenty of space for our coolers, snacks, etc!!!!! Highly recommend! Woke up this morning wanting to book it again! Octopus We love you guys! Thanks again, Jose!!!

We don't do a lot of excursions but spotted this boat on the dock outside Marriott Surf Club. Check it out for yourself.. Highly recommended, worth the $$. Jose is the best! Must do in Aruba. I've never seen a sea turtle my whole life but I swam with one for 10 minutes!!
