As you leave the Renaissance Marina onboard the Sensatie, sit back and enjoy the 15 minute boat ride to Arashi Reef, near the California Lighthouse. Along the way, you will be speeding past many points of interest including Aruba's Eagle Beach and Palm Beach with their beautiful white sand beaches and world renowned resorts. Once you arrive at the reef, the captain and crew will provide snorkeling instructions and get you geared up to get in the water. The area surrounding Arashi boasts gentle currents and abundant underwater life, making it a perfect spot for snorkeling. This reef has a nice variety of corals and fish including Parrotfish, French Angelfish, Butterflyfish, Blue Tang, and Sergeant Major. After spending 20 to 30 minutes snorkeling, you will board the boat and head just a short distance west to the next snorkel stop, the Antilla Shipwreck. After a brief history lesson about the ship, feel free to explore the wreck as you snorkel over it in 60 feet of water. Once everyone is back on board, you will experience a 30 minute thrill ride at exhilarating speeds as you head south past the airport to the area located on the southwest coast of Aruba just south of the Spanish Lagoon. This area is well known by locals as the best snorkel spot in Aruba. Here you will find a great reef structure with a diversity of fish including Yellowtail Snapper, Blue Tang, Wrasse and a variety of Parrotfish species. You will also see Brain, Fire, Elkhorn, Sea Fan, and other varieties of coral. You may also spot Anemone, Sea Cucumber, Squid or Sea Urchins. This is also the location of the Kappel shipwreck thats clearly visible in 40 feet of water. Here you will have another 30 minutes to snorkel. The remainder of the tour is heading back to the marina with one last thrill ride passing by several private islands including Renaissance Island where you might just spot the famous pink flamingos on the beach. After each snorkel stop, you can enjoy ice cold water or blue fruit punch (with or without rum) served in a reusable sports bottle that is yours to keep after the tour. Please note that this tour can also be purchased as a Private Charter for up to 10 passengers.
