Our family was lucky to have Captain Rene take us out today for a two hour snorkel trip; we had an awesome time. Captain Rene was engaging and shared great information about the snorkel spots we were stopping at as well as the Island of Aruba in general. Myself and my two boys went snorkeling while mom took pics from... More

We were on Aruba celebrating our 20th wedding anniversary. We are well past the point of enjoying crowded party boats so this private snorkel was very much appreciated. As others have mentioned, we visited 3 spots. The first had an amazing array of fish close to Malmok beach. The second stop was the shipwreck. The third was along the coast... More

Booked a trip with Rene a week into our holiday with our children 18 and 13. $250 price was good compared to group trips and allows you to choose the itinerary to some degree. Rene arrived on time for 2 hour trip and picked us up from the hotel beach. Drinks were available as we moved to the north of... More

We chose to do the private tour as we didn't want to feel rushed at each site (or stick around longer if we'd seen enough). Did this with my mum and brother. Our guides were Mike and Renee. They picked us up from the RIU beach front. We were very nervous as we'd only snorkelled once before but they took... More

Booked a private snorkeling boat with my girlfriends. This was a great trip. Captain was very professional, safe, relaxing Took us to 3 great places to snorkel. He stayed close with the boat so we always felt safe. Beautiful water beautiful day.

Great trip with Capt. Rene's assistant, Mike. We did 3 stops, Ashari, the shipwreck and another shallow dive by shore. Not much in the way of coral reef but that's ok the water is amazingly clear and there is tons of fish to observe. Private tour is def. the way to go to get away from crowds. You could get... More

Couldn't recommend Captain Rene enough . Arranged the trip prior to going to Aruba and had great communication back . Really went out of his way to make the trip enjoyable and catered for all four of us really well . He knew the best times to visit the wreck to avoid the crowds and never rushed us back to... More

In the past we have done the larger group snorkel tours, including in Aruba, but this time decided to try the private route just to see if we liked it. Now the problem is we may never want to do it any other way! Mike and Rene met us at the Moomba beach pier exactly on time and we were... More

As a family of four, we wrestled with going on a private snorkeling excursion or whether to go with a larger provider. A colleague recommended these guys, as they have used them several times in the past when visiting Aruba. Their reco was right on the mark. Mike took us to three well known snorkel spots, one of which was... More

First time snorkeling-family of 4. A bit nervous but Captain Mike put us at ease from explaining how to use the face mask to what fish we saw. The wreck of the German boat was eerie!! So much better to be on our own boat as opposed to the pack of people on the other snorkeling trips.
