Full description
Visit two of Aruba's most prominent snorkeling spots on a tranquil cruise. The catamaran has everything you could need for a fun-filled adventure from snorkeling equipment, to sunbathing trampolines, to plenty of drinks and snacks.  The first stop, Boca Catalina Bay, includes the island's most beautiful cove. Grab a mask and snorkel and discover the tremendous diversity of colorful fish and other marine life. Next, cast off towards the famous shipwreck of the "SS Antilla," a German cargo ship that was sunk in 1940 during World War II. The Antilla is the largest shipwreck in the Caribbean and is very accessible to snorkelers. In the last half-century, the ship has been covered by tube sponges and coral formations, becoming the permanent residence of tropical fish, shrimp, lobsters, and orange anemones. It is truly an unforgettable snorkeling experience.

This was a fantastic experience and very good value for money (well, it would’ve been even better value if we’d had any food). Firstly we’re vegetarians and weren’t made aware that we needed to email that fact to them before the trip. Secondly, the food is ‘first come, first served’ after everyone has entered the sea at the second snorkelling location. As we weren’t informed of that, all the food had disappeared by the time we emerged from the snorkelling..! Bit disappointing..! However, the rest was great. The crew were fab (& very safety conscious), there was plenty of shade on the catamaran, if required and the second diving location (the wreck) was superb. Also, the free bar was very welcomed. Would’ve been 5 stars if they had saved us some food..!!
