They have a boat called the Dolphin which offered a snorkel and open bar excursion that we loved. We took it the first time for the listed price but then came back and asked for the local rate ($35) which they granted. They did mess up our reservation (forgot to write it down and so had to cancel on us at the last minute) but they made it up to us by giving a good rate on their sunset cruise (also open bar) which we enjoyed. The sunset cruise came with cheese and sausage snacks in addition to chips (fritos, lays, etc.). We also rented jet skis through them which was fun.

If you are looking for a great snorkeling or sunset boat tours I would highly recommend to go with Delphi Watersports. The team is absolutely amazing - Olga, John, Frederick, Ruben and make sure the captain on the boat is Hugo. The drinks and snacks are included.

We had the absolute best time on our UTV tour.
Let me start with the fact that I accidentally booked a quad but really wanted the UTV.. the team was so accommodating and made it work for us!
The tour took us to places we would’ve never gone to alone. The trail was a perfect mix of on and off roading. The crew here is literally top notch and knows how to show their tourists a good time. I would suggest this to anyone.. you’ll have a blast!

Visited Aruba with hopes to do many activities, but the one I absolutely HAD to do was parasailing and Olga + Delphi Watersports made it happen for me! Right in front of the Hyatt Regency, it’s super convenient and they offer anything you want to do. Olga greeted me warmly and advised that the morning (around 10am) is the best time to go parasailing. It was such a magical experience and surprisingly calm in the air, so my boyfriend who is scared of heights was convinced to do it on our very last day in Aruba! I even saw a sea turtle swimming during my trip!

Great service, Olga made arrangements for us very quickly and we had a wonderful time checking this item off our bucket list! They also offer a sunset booze cruise that sounds like a great deal - hope to do that during my next trip to Aruba!

Thank you for choosing Delphi Watersports and for posting this great 5-star review. We are so glad that after Olga greeted you warmly you decided to do the amazing parasailing adventure and were able to take it of your bucket list. How nice that it became a magical experience as any bucket list activity should be and even better to hear that your boyfriend also decided to try it on your last day on Aruba. We would love to see you and your boyfriend again at Delphi Watersports so you can try our breathtaking catamaran Dolphin sunset cruise or any of the other fun activities we offer. Greetings from Olga and the rest of the Delphi crew on the One Happy Island. Grace Leeuwe, Owner/manager Delphi Watersports ⛵🏝🌅🐬

I tried before the fly-board and it was really amazing (quite is to handle after some practice). The water Jet pack is the next level!
Despite my initial thoughts, this activity is much harder than the fly-board. It was extremely difficult to get some balance, but after insisting and thanks to the help of the two guys (Edward and Oscar) who assisted me patiently for the whole activity, I finally managed to jump out of the water. They have been very supportive and helpful.
Olga, the lady at the hut, was crystal clear: the jet pack is not easy and not extremely comfortable to handle and that is why it is not very easy to find on the beach.
Despite the advice, I really wanted to try and I am glad I did.
I confirm what Olga said: the water jet-pack is not at all easy, but, in my opinion, you should try at least once, because it is fun. When you first manage to come out of the water and to fly around you get your reward for the effort.
Be aware: you might want to book in advance!
As said above, it is not easy to find the machine already at the beach. Therefore they need to be informed at least the day before and they ask you a down payment (to reserve the activity).

Thank you so much for taking the time to write this great detailed 5-star review about your experience with the Jet Pack. We are very pleased to hear that you had a fun and exiting experience and although not that easy to master at first definitely worth the trouble once getting up there in the sky. We do recommend to reserve upfront so we have the equipment and the instructor ready. We would love the opportunity to continue your first experience with the JetPack and to bring it to the next level if you decide to return to Aruba. Greetings from sunny Aruba. Grace, Robert and the entire Delphi Team.

I’ve been on many many boat/snorkeling tours in various places. Check in process with Olga was easy and organized. She was very friendly. Nice and clean boat. The staff on board the boat, Fred and someone else whose name I forgot, had minimal personality. They didn’t go in the water with us for snorkeling, they didn’t interact with guests, Fred was actually sitting on his phone when he wasn’t making drinks for us. They did not offer any help with snorkeling, it was my moms first time and it was up to me to give her instructions. They saw her struggling and sat and watched from the boat offering no assistance so she sat inside the boat for the rest of snorkeling. All other snorkeling tours I’ve been on, at least one guide is in the water and they actually help with snorkeling.

Come time for lunch, everyone got one small half of a wrap, and although many of us had requested veggie wraps, Fred said “sorry. We ran out. You can complain when we get back if you want.” So several of us did not get lunch. The chicken wrap my mom had she said wasn’t good, and it was warm as if it weren’t kept in the fridge or on ice all day. It actually upset her stomach for the remainder of the day.

The one star is for the cleanliness of the boat and for Olga, she was lovely.

I picked this company in particular for the reviews and I should’ve gone with another one.

Thank you for sharing your experience and for your feedback. We are sorry that the catamaran snorkeling cruise did not live up to your expectations. We did ask the crew what could have gone wrong the day you came out with us because normally we only have great reviews about the service and amenities on board. We hope to be able to make up for the lack of service that you have experienced and really look forward to hear from you again. Please do not hesitate to contact us. Greetings from sunny Aruba. Grace Leeuwe, Owner/Manager Delphi Watersports.

We were concerned with being around crowds and other families during COVID so my husband and I (plus 2 children ages 14 & 4) chartered a private boat for 2 hours to go snorkeling. This was the BEST day we had in Aruba and surprisingly reasonable compared to the 3 hour catamaran tour (excluding the lunch which we didnt need anyway). Our private boat, (with a picture of sponge bob on the side - major plus for the 4 year old), picked us up in front of the Hyatt. We packed towels, our own snorkel equipment (although not needed) and some light snacks. SERGE our captain helped us on to the boat and got us settled. The boat could have held 8 comfortably so we had plenty of room to sprawl out. Serge offered us his portable speaker to play any music we wanted. Serge took us to 3 snorkeling locations. The first one was an amazing reef with tons of fish all sizes and colors. The waters were shallow and calm. Even our 4 year old did great.
Second location was a more lively reef - waters a bit more wavy. Third was the ship wreck and you could see the ship even if you were not in the water! Having Serge navigate through each site and give us some personal history, point out everything and exactly where to look was super helpful. We felt very comfortable with Serge, I even shared our chips and snacks with him. We had a great time and would highly recommend this! Thank you to Serge who made our private tour the best.

We booked a smaller private snorkeling tour for four and what an unbelievable adventure it was. We had been in Aruba last year and had gone on a bigger boat for snorkeling with perhaps 40 other people (time before covid). That had been disappointing but this tour with SERGE was wonderful!! He knew right where to take us to see both a sunken ship which was sooooo cool and an amazing coral reef. I saw more fish than I have ever seen. And I have been snorkeling in many waters. Beautiful fish were everywhere! His experiences and stories of growing up in Aruba were very special. He is a humble, respectful young man with a love for his island. What a ball- and the chicken wraps and fruit were really good too! Thank you Serge- Leslie and Zef and Sandy and Lorenzo

Thank you so much for booking the private boat ride with Delphi Watersports and for taking the time to post this nice 5-star review. We are so pleased to hear that Serge made sure that you had a wonderful time and that you liked his humble and respectful attitude and love for his native island Aruba. So nice that you were able to see both the German freighter "Antilla" and the shallow reef with all the beautiful colorful fish. The chicken wraps and fresh fruit are offered to complete an amazing experience and we are glad you liked them. We hope to see you again at Delphi Watersports on the One Happy Island. Greetings from Serge and the entire Delphi Team and Happy Holidays from all of us on sunny Aruba. Grace Leeuwe, Owner/manager, Delphi Watersports 🚤🏝🏜🌞🐬🐡🐠🐟

I booked parasailing and tubing for my kids. On the day of our booking, my son wasn't feeling well (and my daughter didn't want to go without him). I had to cancel after the cancellation window had closed. I didn't request a refund because I knew the cancellation policy, but I received a message from Grace at Delphi Watersports saying, 'We will make an exception and issue a full refund. We hope your son feels better soon.'
How amazing is that?! If this is how they do business and treat their customers, I will definitely book with them in the future and recommend them to everyone I know.
Thank you so much, Grace!

My family and I have been to Aruba 6+times and we keep coming back. We love the island, the ocean, the cuisine and most of all the people who we now call our family. Delphi Watersports is the most amazing company in Aruba that offers water activities for kids and adults. Olga had the most patience with dealing with my kids constantly wanting to go on a tube or watercraft...how many times could kids go on the same tubes??? Yes, they loved the thrill but more importantly they loved the company of Oscar and Serge who took them out in the water and had such patience to teach them how to wake board and had fun with them tubing. The truly are such an asset to this company. Every morning Jhon had our umbrellas up and ready to go and accommodated us with whatever requests we asked...and always did it with a smile. I can’t say enough about this crew and how amazing they are. We look forward to seeing them every year and every year it gets harder to say good bye. Thank you Olga, Jhon, Oscar and Serge for being your amazing selves and treating my family so well.
