Booked during a carnival cruise for a private trip for my wife and I. Wife said best snorkeling ever and we've done a lot. Not hurried at all. The wreck was cool and the two other stops were shallow enough where you could go to the bottom. Rum punch helped. These guys really made us feel special.

We had a group of 10 as part of a cruise ship stop. Half in the party were avid snorkelers and the other half had limited/no snorkeling experience. Our party included 3 kids and 7 adults with ages ranging from 6-45 years of age and Captain Rene did a great job with all. We communicated via email before our trip... More

Captain Renee took us to two amazing spots around the island to snorkel. Very accommodating and helpful. We want with 10 family members with 3 small children and two adults who have never snorkeled before. Very helpful in all aspects of island info and snorkeling safety. Thank you Captain Renee!!

We have booked 2-3 trips with Captain Renee and Captain Mike each time we come to Aruba over the past many years. Continues to be one of the highlights of our trip.

My wife and I came to Aruba for our 1-year anniversary/honeymoon. We wanted to do something a little more private, not with 50ppl on a booze-cruise. We found "private snorkeling aruba" after a brief search online and after reading other reviews we booked right away. Captain Rene (the owner) and I exchanged brief emails twice and that was it, we... More

We booked a private tour for part of our honeymoon. Our captain was on time which is saying a lot in Aruba! We went to three different locations, one of which we almost got run over at by another snorkeling-tour outfit. Our captain agreed to taking us to another location after that. We had a blast and would recommend everyone... More

We booked a semi-private snorkeling trip, which ended up being private. Captain Mike was awesome and it was so nice being the only ones on the boat w/ him and not having to fight the crowds. He even altered our route so that we could avoid the large groups of several big boats w/ hundreds of people all snorkeling in... More

If you're looking for a great and relaxing tour then you need to book a trip with Rene. He is the perfect host who knows all about the island and the water that surrounds it... This is not a tour where you have the feeling that the clock is more important for the guide than the guests, Rene takes his... More

Booked Captain Rene in late August. No one else signed up so we had a private snorkeling trip today, Sept 27th. It was outstanding! Capt. Mike was knowledgeable. Didn't hurry. Made the entire experience fun, safe and relaxed. Would highly recommend this excursion. Trust me, this was perfect. Thank you, Mike!
