Know More about this tour

Enjoy sailing on the turquoise waters of the Caribbean in the late afternoon sun when the sky begins to prepare for a majestic sunset and the seascape is spectacular. After pickup from your hotel, hop on board the 70-foot (20-meter) long catamaran, sit back and relax with a refreshing cocktail from the open bar and enjoy some tasty tropical snacks before hopping in the water for your snorkel or snuba adventure!

Discover the beauty of Arubas underwater world at two great snorkel sites, including the shipwrecked Antilla a 40-foot (13-meter) German freighter sunk during World War II and now encrusted with coral. Follow your guide through the water and explore this historical wreck, portions of which are only partly submerged. Youll be amazed by the pristine surroundings as you discover an abundance of marine life in the Caribbean! After heading back to land, you'll be transferred back to your hotel.

Optional Upgrade: SNUBAUpgrade your tour to include an optional Snuba experience, Aruba's most popular underwater activity. If you like to snorkel, but arent ready for scuba diving, then try Snuba (SNorkel+scUBA)! A certified Snuba guide will lead you on your underwater tour for 45 minutes, including instruction. Youll go beyond snorkeling and breathe easily underwater descending to a depth of 20 feet (6 meters) without wearing heavy, restrictive scuba diving gear.

    Very good crew! The Snuba of the shipwreck was unique, fun to be with the fishes and hanging with the baby barracudas!

    We had a great time on this Afternoon Delight Snorkel. We added the Snuba which was a bucket list thing for me. So glad we did. The guide was a good teacher and it was great. We saw many fish and he brought food for the fish to attract them. The catamaran is huge and was a fun cruise as well. The ship wreck was fun to see, but it was very windy there so we did not stay in the water long.

    The tour itself was very nice....no complaints. The boat was clean, the crew was nice and festive and the spot we went to Snorkel was teaming with fish. The only reason for not giving this tour a five star rating is due to the instructions or rather lack thereof in the Viator vouchers and the EXTREMELY RUDE AND BELLIGERENT treatment we received from their representative at the Renaissance hotel. The vouchers that we received did not explain that you must make a reservation for your trip in advance. Although you select, book and pay for a specific trip date this DOES NOT secure your trip for that date. On the morning of our trip I called the number on the voucher because I had not had any communication confirming our transportation details. I was advised that we did not have a reservation for our group and that we would have to speak to the agent at the hotel. When we arrived we waited in line behind one couple who was purchasing their trip onsite. After waiting approximately 30 minutes through the sales pitch and another five minutes of being ignored after she was done with the couple I asked if she would be the right person to speak to. I was belittled for not knowing what I was supposed to do and told that the instructions were clear on the voucher. I had the printed vouchers in hand and pointed out that at no time was it expressed that we had to see an onsite reservation agent or complete a separate confirmation/reservation for transportation in order to take the snorkel cruise. After 30 more minutes of arguments the agent conceded that we could go on the snorkel cruise if we could get our group to the boat before sailing time AT OUR OWN COST, even though transportation was included in the fee we paid because we didn't follow directions and book in advance. We paid taxis which are extremely reluctant to transport a group of six even in a van with enough seats at a premium cost to get us to the boat. Once on the boat no complaints.....but buyer beware.

    This was a great experience - only thing I didn't like was the bus was 25 minutes late to pick us up and no explanation or apology.
    The boat was great, the staff were super nice. The boat was plenty big enough and loads of space to escape the children who were on board too! So good for families and couples/singles.
    The Snuba was a great experience. My guide sorry forgot his name was so patient with me, and I just went at my own speed and depth.

    Only thing I'd recommend changing is more sailing time - thought it was meant to be for 4 hours, but was only 3.

    Amazing! Fun!
    The time spent in the water is awesome. The hosts are professional, cautious and interactive. They take care of the guests and vessel.

    Fun! More eventful if u are able to snorkel 60ft see a German ship wreckage and more.

    The pick up and drop off were prompt. The sailing crew was great and the drinks were good. The music was also good and the snorkeling was amazing. The staff was very helpful when it came to putting the snorkel gear on. Would recommend to a friend

    The music was a bit loud, but the crew was great, the equipment was in good shape, and everyone in our group had a good time.

    Had a great time on this excursion. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and a gr8 party attitude on a roomy catamaran.. We had an adequate amount of time to snorkel in two locations, at a shipwreck and around the reef. Not a massive amount of coral or a huge variety of tropical fish but a fun day nevertheless. I opted for the snuba but was a little disappointed because, despite a full weight belt, I had a lot of trouble getting depth. I have an unusual propensity to float. Also, I read other reviews that said that the guides took pictures with an option to purchase them but I didn't hear any mention of this on the tour.

    Enjoyed the snuba but did not realize we could only snuba at one out of the two sites. Water was a bit murky during this time, and we wished we were underwater a bit longer.
