If you are going to Aruba, you must take a cruise on board the Strea. The boat is plenty big enough for a party of 15 or nice with a party of 2. This winter we had an opportunity to sail twice on board the Strea. Once in late January and once the first week of March. Both times we enjoyed an afternoon cruise and the last trip we had 9 people and enjoyed a sunset dinner cruise as well. John and his first mate Robert were really great, making us cocktails or serving us ice cold Balashi whenever the cup was empty. We took a trip up through the inner channel to a very nice diving spot. The current was really bad during the January trip and they had to take us to a different snorkeling spot that was full of tropical fish and we even saw an eel. During the second trip we had 9 people on board drinking and having a party. John and Robert were very entertaining and just felt like we were all one big family. I will not go to Aruba again unless I take a cruise on the Strea and look forward to seeing John next year!!! For dinner John set up a Korean BBQ style cooking plate on the deck and had fresh Shrimp, Chicken and Beef on the BBQ with fresh vegetables, soup and wonderful bread. The meal was amazing and delicious, john is such a CHEF too!!!

All 11 of us consisting of family members and close friends chartered the Strea motor yacht for 6 hours on October 12, 2021 for the purpose of scattering my sisters ashes into the Caribbean Sea in front of the Divi Village Golf Resort to honor her wishes. Numerous emails with Esther prior to the trip took place to make these arrangements. All of us had a wonderful and fantastic time. Captain John and crewmate Randy were absolute first class, perfect professionals that saw to each and everyone of our needs. Just as discussed in the emails the location of the scattering of ashes was exactly as requested. We had nothing but praise for the captain and crewmate. Prior to the scattering of the ashes the group went snorkeling and that was a great experience. Then we were served a great lunch and then made our way just off shore from the Divi Village Golf Resort. We would all highly recommend the chartering of the Strea vessel, it was a trip that will never be forgotten, and my sister is now at peace thanks to Captain John, Esther and Randy.

One of the best experiences on the island. The snorkel spot is one of the best on the island and has a great variety of coral and marine life. The food is freshly prepared on the boat and is absolutely delicious. The cocktails are sweet and refreshing, especially when John makes them. The views from the boat are stunning, and the Caribbean water glows in the sun. There is a stereo system on board where you can connect your own music. I highly recommend this trip for anyone who wants a relaxing cruise or even a boozy celebration. The trip is easily adaptable to your needs.

Captain John and Ren provided an amazing snorkeling adventure for us! They were so friendly and knowledgeable, talking with us about some history of Aruba, descriptions of local businesses and even pro futbol talk for our teen boys. They provided all the gear for our snorkeling. Ren swam with us, and calmly coached us as we swam through substantial current to get to deeper water and beautiful reefs; it was well worth it!!! Capt John and Ren were so kind, and the scenery was gorgeous!!! Thank you for some amazing memories we will always treasure!!!

Memorable day for our family of 5! Captain John and his co-captain Randy provided exceptional service and a relaxed, but fun environment aboard the boat. Due to the wind, our snorkeling was a little rough, but Randy helped guide my 9 year old and ensured his safety so the rest of us could enjoy the beauty of the snorkeling. Would very much recommend and would use again upon return to Aruba.

In a word - Wow! John and Matt provided the most perfect evening, ever. Their attention to detail, from the moment we stepped on to the boat, until the moment we stepped off, was excellent. Sure, the sunset probably looked the same on every other boat that was on the water that night, but our private sunset cruise with John and Matt from Strea Charters, will be a memory we treasure forever!

The most important thing about any boat excursion is safety. This group does not take safety seriously enough.

First, there is the boat. It is old (built in 1973) and is a shambles. The head did not work, the seating was a crude carpentry job. The interior cabin was a mess and in terrible disrepair. They cooked on a cook top with a loose propane tank — not the kind of cooking that is permissible on a vessel. I would be shocked if they could pass a proper Coast Guard inspection.

Second, they did not seriously handle safety. There was not much of a safety talk. We had to ask where the life jackets were. There was little in terms of safety when we went snorkeling, too.

Third, we ended the trip by watching a plane land. They stopped the boat underneath the flight path. Right underneath. The boat ended up drifting into the landing lights that were marked “High Voltage”. The boat destroyed the landing lights and put us all in peril as it ripped the lights off the pylon. They had become entangled in the rigging.

The crew was friendly, and maybe they will mature into a more serious company. Right now, I would caution anyone thinking of going aboard.

Loved, loved, loved our snorkel trip on Strea Charters to celebrate my boyfriend's 50th birthday! It was 3 hours of pure blizz, relaxing, swimming and snorkeling. John was the perfect captain and knew the best place to see the beautiful life under water. Totally recommend it!

What a wonderful experience! John is awesome and so easy going. Made sure we had everything we needed and our daughters were happy. Plenty of room to spread out, relax and soak in the sun and Caribbean breeze. We brought our own lunch and drinks but John also had some chips and fresh fruit for us. Snorkeling was fantastic and our kids had fun swimming around the boat. This is the charter you want for a chill, private tour of the island away from the hustle and bustle. Thank you John!!

Great crew, very comfortable boat, and my personal favorite place to snorkel on the island in the mangel halto island area which can only be accessed by boat. The coral gardens are enormous and teeming with different varieties of fish and coral and sea life. You can use Bluetooth to play whatever music your group prefers.

Very friendly and help staff and a memorable and beautiful time.
