We were met on time by our very nice guide who picked us up right by our hotel. He took us to three snorkel locations. Two of which were very good. We went when it was not so crowded in the mid day. We enjoyed the rum punch and the tour was the perfect amount of time to spend snorkeling.... More

Arrived in Aruba on a cruise ship and had arranged for the trip prior to leaving on the cruise. We took a taxi to the high-rise beach area which cost $14. The dock is right there when you walk onto the beach. Just asked a few people where Capt Rene was and they pointed him out on the dock. We... More

We were so lucky to meet Captain Rene. Had not planned but it was fate and our good luck, I prayed and sent a mail one night before Christmas and Cpt Rene was kind enough to accommodate us in a slot. We were 2 families with 6 kids most below 10 - He was so patient with them with explanation... More

My family of 5 has been on the big snorkeling boats several times. This time we wanted a different experience so we booked with Captain Rene, based on the reviews. We were not disappointed! He met us exactly on time on Moomba beach (a quick cab ride from our hotel) and walked us out to the boat. Captain Mike took... More

My husband and I booked a group snorkeling tour, and we ended up getting a private trip with Captain Mike. He took us first to a reef, which had tons of fish to look at. Next, we went to the Antilla shipwreck. That was pretty amazing to see. We went to another reef after that. The tour was 2 hours... More

My family and I went on a snorkel with Captain Mike. We had 6 adults and two little ones. We had a wonderful time. It is so nice to have one on one time snorkeling with your family instead of being on an over crowded boat with no room or space. We went on 3 stops and we loved the... More

My wife and I did this trip off a cruise. We kew in advance that Aruba was not great for snorkeling. We booked this as a private trip for two people. Captain Mike was great. He acknowledged that all the snorkel trips went to the same 4 spots so he tried to get us to the spots before the big... More

Captain Rene greeted us at the top of the pier. It helped to know we were in the right place. He is very charming. Captain Mike took us on a small group excursion. It was very personal and we were able to ask many questions. We went to 3 snorkeling spots. They were each different. Seeing an old shipwreck was... More

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
