Using our underwater scooters, we can show anyone from beginners to experienced snorkelers a fun and unique way to discover the best snorkeling Aruba has to offer. We snorkel off the beach in an area called Mangle Halto. It is by far the best coral and marine life on the island. Your group sizes can range anywhere from 1 person to 8 people, although we can can accommodate larger groups during certain times. Please email for further information on larger groups. For more information please read our FAQ page on our website.

Opted for the private tour. Well worth the few extra dollars. Alex was a great guide. The water scooters allowed us to see so much more area. Loved they include the photos in with the package. Definitely recommend.

Alex rocks! Was very patient with me and my wife novice snorkelers that we are. The sea was rough and he basically guide us by the hand. The tour was incredible. We actually saw an octopus. My one compliant was how roughly the sea was!...More

Best snorkeling in Aruba. You use a scooter to help you. The staff is amazing. It is worth paying 100 bucks.

I found Aruba Bob based on other trip advisor recommendations, and they were absolutely right. This was my favorite activity on the island, hands down. Aruba Bob himself picked us up from the hotel and we had great conversations on the drive to their shop....More

Hi there, I'm afraid we only do snorkeling tours and do not have snuba. Kyra@ArubaBob
We will be in Aruba from June 27th to July 4th....my husband, myself and 13 year old son. How much lead time do you need. It would be a group tour likely. What is the cost difference between the group and private tours and how much time in advance if at all do we need to book either tour. Also my husband and I have snorkeled before but never with the seabob propulsion. My son has not. We aren't accustomed to holding our breath for long periods of time. for myself I'm picturing having to come up for air frequently which gets in the way of the experience but no real difference for anyone else except maybe divers and the like. from the earlier post transportation is not included in the costs of the trip. If we have a rental car it is best to use it? Also regarding underwater photos-with the seabob it isn't possible do you provide photos for all customers and is there a fee for providing shots of us and all we see on the tour? Thank you.

Private cost was $125 and group $100. Worrying about air is not a concern as you can stay on the snorkel at all times. Divers have the option of diving shallow or deep but I never chose to do so. Photos are taking by the... More
