We placed a reservation to go on a morning snorkel cruise with octopus tours for a Saturday morning. We had planned out our entire week so this was really the only day we would have wanted to go. Got the email confirmation and thought we were all set. Got an email on Wednesday asking if we could join the group... More

Hi Melanie, Thanks for you review. I'm sorry to hear that you feel this way about what happens. We told you on the beach that we only have 2 reservations and we don't sail out for two. Not that we don't like to sail for two but because of the costs. In that case we have more crew than guests.... More

Thank you Marcus (and your crew) for a wonderful day out snorkelling. We came in on a cruise ship and grabbed a taxi to palm beach and you guys were all ready and waiting for us. Couldn't have been easier. It was a wonderful day snorkelling. Great fish, great turtles! Great food and great staff. There were only 8 of... More

We spent the morning with Octopus Sailing Charters. We had a day at Aruba, arriving on a Norwegian cruise. Really glad we went out with Octopus. Marcus is a fantastic captain and host. Knowledgeable and friendly, he made it a memorable morning. Great snorkelling, interesting history and a great way to see such a beautiful island. Highly recommended.

We went on this trip as we arrived on the island via cruise ship. They were very generous with their alcohol and made sure we had a brilliant time. The weather was pretty bad, so can't comment on the snorkeling, but the staff more than made sure we had a good time. I would highly recommend a trip with them.... More

Octopus sailing was recommended to my friend and me by one of the island locals. My friend was not a big fan of sailing, much less Snorkeling, but we both thoroughly enjoyed the outing. The staff was courteous, skilled and attentive and the food was light and fresh. I would definitely recommend this company!

No motor, just sails. Smooth trimaran. Easy listening music quietly in the background. 20 people or less. Knowledgeable & friendly captain. A few snacks (just ok) & drinks included. Good pricing versus some competition. We imagine making this a regular part of each visit to Aruba.
