    We had a great time snorkeling and hanging out on the boat! Perfect amount of time and everything was very organized yet super fun!

    Great way to see the sunset. Not crowded and the staff were friendly and hospitable. Nice snacks and drinks all included.

    We had a beautiful sunny morning and enjoyed the snorkelling, seeing turtles and fish ..we arrived in plenty of time but queued until bang on 2 pm in the heat when they could of easily let us board and sit undercover , we didn’t go far out and by the time everyone had kitted up and got in / out of water x2 it was a lot of sitting around and not a typical boat trip. If your not snorkelling it’s not for you , sitting around and waiting….. but disappointed and as usual the speech about leaving a large tip is included in their chat before you get off the boat, would of liked to sail more !!

    Snorkeling the shipwreck and swimming in the schools of fish was amazing! Beautiful views and affordable! The crew was fun and inviting! Shout out to Caesar!

    Excellent crew, extremely fun with great drinks. Amazing sunset. This is a "must do" in Aruba. Awesome music and the views are second to none. Depalm is top notch in everything they do.

    Such a great experience! Laid back very friendly crew and really enjoyable ride on a catamaran. The snorkeling was not bad but I do think that Aruba's uniquely colored water makes it a bit harder to see compared to other caribbean islands I have been to. Still a really cool experience and was definitely an amazing memory for my husband and I.

    The catamaran was very packed up to capacity, maybe around 50-60 people. It is definitely not a chill experience. The crew is very nice and helpful and it was priced well. If you tend to experience sea sickness I would skip this one. Despite Dramamine I had the worst time due to the unique motion of the catamaran. About 1/3 of the boat looked how I felt and did not get into the water at stop no 2 as they were too busy hanging onto their barf bags. If the motion of the ocean doesn’t bother you and a party boat with an open bar and below average snorkeling is your jam, then this it.

    This was such an incredible day! We were out there for our honeymoon and ended up having a great day and met a lot of great people on the boat including some amazing locals! The crew was fantastic and hilarious and sure knows how to get a party started! The only downside was that the shipwreck location is shared with other tours so it's a bit chaotic when you are trying to get some good snorkeling in but nothing a strong drink can't fix. All in all would recommend any day of the week and will do it again ourselves!

    We were picked up at the hotel and taken to the boat which was a lovely catamaran; there were plenty of spaces to sit whilst we put on our lifejackets and snorkelling gear. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the guy giving instructions and the commentary was very funny and made us laugh. The lunch was good - hot dogs/cheese and ham rolls/fruit kebabs and there was an open bar, so there were plenty of drinks. We stopped at 2 sites for snorkelling - one was a shipwreck the other a reef - both were interesting and entertaining - we even saw a sea turtle! The trip lasted from 2 - 5pm and we thoroughly enjoyed every minute. It was a great way to spend an afternoon in Aruba. We would definitely do this trip again should we return to Aruba.

    The cruise was great . The crew was friendly and helpful and set the tone for the experience. The snorkeling experience was just ok. The crew assumed that everyone knew how to use the equipment when not everyone did. Some of the snaps on the life vests were broken and wouldn't lock. They should inspect their equipment after each trip to ensure safety. The captain was experienced and well versed. He definitely knew hsi history of the area. Overall, the experience was pleasant and a nice way to see more of the areas at sea. I would recommend the experience and will do it again when we return.
