We had an amazing day on the water with Captain Anthony, Dwayne, and Buster! We were a group of 15, and took the lunch cruise and were not disappointed. We had a beautiful day on the water, and snorkeling. The lunch was superb and Dwayne was extremely attentive to our every need. Overall great experience and everyone in the group... More

And what an enjoyable time we had on this boat if you go to Aruba you have to charter the Tranquilo. We were treated like royalty by the captain and his right-hand man Dwayne and we loved their little dog Buster. We anchored in very calm waters near the airport as the sun was setting we could watch planes landing... More

We did the lunch snorkel cruise and it was great! The boat was a nice size, not too big, not too small, and the staff was very nice and helpful. The snorkeling was awesome and we even got to go out to open deep water and see even more stuff. Plus we were the only group at this spot, so... More

I will preface this by saying that for quite a few years I was someone who booked reservations for tour companies, so I know how they operate, and Tranquillo Tours did something I thought was incredibly selfish and unwarranted that screwed with our one day on Aruba. We booked a party of three a month in advance. We were on... More

Captain Anthony is fantstic. His ability and hospitality makes the Tranquilo the best sail boat in Aruba. Very nice sunset private cruise. Thank you Captain!

Amazing day aboard the Tranquilo. Capt. Anthony knows how to make everyone feel welcomed, relaxed and enjoy a day of snorkeling in a special location. There is no stress and his 1st mate Wayne and helper Kyle make everything move smoothly. Had a fantastic time and will definitely repeat this trip next time in Aruba.

Can't say enough good things about this trip except for the cruise by the island dump which was on fire... Had to ride through the smoke. Anthony and his two assistants made my 12 year old daughter feel right at home. The Dutch pea soup that they serve was fantastic.

This was a great day! It was very chill, relaxing but fun at the same time. We arrived to the marina (and parked at Renaissance suites as per Anthony’s email!) at 9:45. We departed approx. 10:15 and headed on the inter-coastal waterway down toward Spanish Lagoon. The worst part was going past the landfill where the burning smelled bad, but... More

I went on a sailboat cruise last week with Tranquilo. It was a great time with great people some who had been before. We sailed and then went snorkeling and the had sandwiches and homemade pea soup. I really suggest this cruise if you like sailing and snorkeling.

First of all...be aware that they do not take credit card payment...CASH ONLY AS YOU BOARD! Spent over 5 hours with the sails up and the diesel at a minimum. Anthony, the skipper, is said to be one of the best sailors in the Carribean. The fact that we sailed with several repeat customers can attest to that. His crew... More
