“Aruba Snorkel Bob was the best snorkel experience we have had.”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Hi

My wife and I had an awesome time during our snorkel experience with Aruba Snorkel Bob led by Stuart.  We have been to many islands and have snorkeled alot. Our experience started with an ontime pickup at our hotel and an engaging conversation during the ride while we learned much about Aruba history and culture. Upon arrival at the snorkel office we were outfitted with our gear, given a verbal refresher on equipment usage and safety and then hoped in the van for a short ride to the beach.  Once at the beach we put our gear on and Stuart instructed us in water safety and equipment usage.  What followed was probably some of the best reef snorkeling my wife and I have done. The two of us were joined by another couple of similar intermediate skill level. Stuart was ever alert to our safety and enhancement of our snorkeling enjoyment. We were in the water for over 90 minutes. This was a great value for the money.
Without a doubt, we will use Aruba Snorkel Bob during our next visit. Steve Praissman

“Sensational snorkeling adventure”
Reviewed December 3, 2012

Great snorkeling experience. We thoroughly enjoyed the adventure. This is the one for you if you want something completely different from being on a crowed excursion boat. Stuart is a great instructor and very skillful. fThe tour included a pickup at our hotel, all necessary euipment, snorkeling using a battery operated scooter and numerous underwater pictures that he takes for you. A real treat.

“Great snorkeling adventure in the Southern Caribbean”
Reviewed December 2, 2012

We had never heard of power assisted snorkeling before but were fascinated by the idea and booked with Aruba Bob based on TA and Cruise Critic reports. The process was straightforward and Stuart Finch arrived early to pick us up near the cruise terminal. He drove us to a resort near the site where he fitted us with excellent gear. Then it was off to the entry point for a great time snorkeling. Stuart carefully explained what we were going to do and some safety rules before we entered the water. Throughout the trip, Stu was checking on us, pointing out things of interest and taking pictures. We snorkeled for about two hours and covered almost a mile. After finishing, we were given the option to go back to the resort to shower, swim in the pool, and have a few drinks or head back to the port. We opted for the later. Can't say enough good things about Stuart and Aruba Bob - a professional organization with top quality equipment and great customer service. Cruise ship passengers are required to pay a 50% deposit through PayPal due to a history of excessive no-shows from shipboard passengers. (BTW, we are in our mid/late 60's in fair to good condition and had no problems participating in all the activities.)

“Amazing Snorkeling - Unforgettable - Longlasting Memories !!!”
Reviewed December 1, 2012

This was the most amazing snorkeling I have ever done in my life ! Loved my guides - Kent & Stuart - what great, knowable people, who love what they do and know how to help you enjoy your experience. Your love of snorkeling let me explore the great waters at Mangel Halto. The scooters are one of the coolest things to help any level swimmer maneuver thru the water and just heighten your experience, I really didn't want to get out of the water. I saw so many species of fish, so many colors, beautiful coral. When Stuart spotted the turtle it was just breathtaking to see it just glide thru the water - awesome ! The pictures that Stuart took and then sent me via email are such great memories, one that I will never forget. Looking forward to coming back and you are the only people I will ever snorkel with again in Aruba - I'm hooked ! Shirley Hicks - Cincinnati Ohio
