“Great group trip!!!”
Review of Strea Charters

Strea Charters
Reviewed December 18, 2012

We had a great trip on 12/11/12. This was our second trip with Capt John. This time we came as a 12 person group for a private charter. There was plenty of room for everyone to stretch out and relax on the cruise to Mango Halto. Food and beverages were great. The snorkeling at Mango Halto was full of fish and interesting coral formations. Really scenic area to swim in with no one else around. Our 7 year old son mentioned that this was his favorite part of our trip. On the cruise back, Capt John was able to put us directly in the flight path of a landing plane. Very cool!!! Thanks for the great trip!!

Firstly Captain John was extremely caring and it was obvious how much he wanted to make sure his guests enjoyed their trip with him.
We ended up being the only people that day for the morning snorkeling trip and were hoping that wouldn't affect us being taken out (with a lot of smaller companies they would cancel the trip with no other passengers to make it more worth their time/ money), it didn't and we were greeted very warmly.
We ended up having our own boat to enjoy and Captain John actually took us out for a little longer than the time scheduled.
As with any snorkeling trip aboard a small boat make sure to ask what equipment is available and bring your sun screen, although this boat is great due to having somewhere to stay covered too.
Captain John allowed my partner to tie us off at the snorkeling site and gave him a finishing line to use to troll on the way back which were fun touches that made the experience even more fun.
We saw an eel snorkeling and flying fish on our journey home.
It was the perfect way to end our vacation on this wonderful island!

This is our 2nd year in a row to book with Strea Charters. We book both the Mango Halto morning cruise from 9:30a.m.-1:30p.m. and again that night return to the harbor for our Private Sunset Sail . Getting to witness the calm turquiose waters while relaxing amongst the comfort of his luxury refinished yacht is an amazing experience all itself.
Each time we booked we have always been the only boat at Mango Halto. Snorkeling amongst a small group of people was so enjoyable. Last year there was only two other family's for only a total of 8 passengers. This year to our surprise it was just our family which made it even more special. We really enjoyed witnessing the amazing variety of Sea Life while snorkeling. John also provides a very nicely prepared Lunch.
The Private Sunset Sail is the most intimate Sea Experience of our LIFE. Drinking Champagne, listening to romantic music amognst the Sea at Sunset with your Loved one was an experience to last me a lifetime. We look forward to returning to Aruba and booking Again with Strea Charters. We cannot wait to be spoiled by John means he has such a natural talent for attention to personal detail. John also makes the most delicious homemade appetizers. John & Esther both feel like an extended part of our family. Our son was only 5 the first time we went and John even got in the water with us. Captain John left a lasting impression on our son Dalton who is only 6. We would recommend Strea Charters to anyone. We booked directly off their web site. The Mayer Family in Kansas

We just returned from our 9 day Aruba trip and booked a Sunset Cruise with Strea Charters directly from their web site. We had a great time and would recommend this to everyone who visits Aruba. John was our host and he made the trip fun and memorable. The 2 hour sunset cruise is a great way to see the island from the water and the sunset was amazing!!! This is a must thing to do if you want a relaxing and great experience in Aruba!

Thanks John,

Darren and Shari Brown

The trip was very nice and relaxing. I was pleased that there was a small group on the boat. The lunch provided was good. (tuna and assorted deli meats, chips and desert). We plugged our ipod into the ships stereo system and listened to music and had a great time. I would recommend this tour if you do not want to have to snorkel around, over, and in between people on a more crowded boat.
