About Aruba Bob Snorkeling
Using our underwater scooters, we can show anyone from beginners to experienced snorkelers a fun and unique way to discover the best snorkeling Aruba has to offer. We snorkel off the beach in an area called Mangle Halto. It is by far the best coral and marine life on the island. Your group sizes can range anywhere from 1 person to 8 people, although we can can accommodate larger groups during certain times. Please email for further information on larger groups. For more information please read our FAQ page on our website.

My GF and I took a trip out with Coco and the team at Aruba Bob to the Mango Halto reef and it was an experience I will never forget. Their team worked hand in hand with both of us to make sure we were both comfortable with the process and understood how to operate the machines and we were off! They were attentive to both of our different approaches at experiencing the reef (me, diving as much as possible and her, relaxing and cruising along) and they made sure we both had the best time ever! The Aruba Bob team found all sorts of gorgeous fish and made sure to show us all of them and take great pictures for us to enjoy after the trip. Our trip with them was the highlight of our vacation. The Seadoo machines were easy to operate, safe and made the experience infinitely more enjoyable. On top of that, I was so inspired by the time I had out on the reef that I began my Scuba certification classes back home and will be flying back down ASAP so that I can complete my Scuba Open Water certification with Coco, I couldn't think of a better person to teach me the ropes on how to scuba and enjoy/appreciate/respect the local wildlife. I CANT SAY THIS ENOUGH! You must book this tour. I won't name other companies names but we did a different snorkeling/boating tour each day of our one week trip here and the experience with Aruba Bob was by far the best.

Wonderful snorkeling over the reef. The water was quite choppy, would not have been able to make it trough the surf without the scooter. Once over the reef did not need the scooter as much, but was still handy to cover a lot of distance, and to take a good look at interesting sights when against the current. Guide Coco was great. Very professional, friendly and helpful. Also took lots of good pictures for us! Interestingly, this company now also is active in working to combat lion fish, an invasive and destructive ( but tasty) species. This was our second time doing this excursion, and I would love to do it again on another trip.

Coco was the best !!! From picking us up at the hotel to setting us with gear . He was also very knowledgeable, friendly and patient ( with 1st timers) The snorkeling was so much fun and the fish were beautiful. Coco made sure we were comfortable and safe at all times. He also took beautiful pics of us all the fish, corral and the wreck we saw .156 pics This is the best snorkeling trip !! Much better than any booze cruise type snorkeling other companies offer

This was an amazing experience, led by Coco. He was a great guide & instructor! Not to mention certified in several other scuba diving areas, including rescue diving. Perfect for beginners to experienced snorkelers. The scooters were a blast! Also did my very first nighttime (from the shore) scuba dive with this dive shop. It was incredible! Lucus is a Dive Master ( among many other diving certifications) so I felt very comfortable with him. He was certain to put me at ease before & during this dive.make sure I was at okay throughout the dive. Pickup & drop off from the hotel was a great convince. Ed the owner of the shop was super friendly, outgoing & conical. (He is also a Dive Master) Highly recommend. The ONLY snorkeling/dive shop to use on the island! I’d give them 10 stars if I could!

Great experience. Love that it is off the coast, not the boat. This is our second time with Aruba Bob, and we'll go again. The only thing is if the winds are strong, the waves limit what you can do/see, and you cannot come closer to the coral reefs. However, it was not a problem - following our very expert guide we were able to be safe and still greatly enjoy the experience. I highly recommend Aruba Bob.
