Catalina Bay and Antilla Shipwreck Snorkel Cruise
Combine two of Aruba's best snorkel spots—the Antilla shipwreck and Catalina Bay—on a single boat tour. A multistop snorkel tour is difficult to pull off if you don't know the area, but this tour plans everything ahead of time and provides snorkel equipment as well. Between stops, refuel with snacks on board the catamaran and unwind with drinks from the open bar.
What to Expect
Begin with convenient pickup at your Aruba hotel; all you have to do is bring your swimsuit, a towel, and sunscreen and relax on the way to the catamaran's departure point at Palm Beach pier. 

Stop first at Catalina Bay, where the calm waters are an ideal learning ground for beginner snorkelers. After a short orientation and safety talk, don the provided snorkel gear and jump in to see the damselfish, parrotfish, angelfish, and native coral. Your guides will be on hand to supervise and provide any assistance. 

On the way to the Antilla wreck, refuel with the provided snacks and sip a drink from the open bar. When you arrive at one of the island’s most visited snorkeling spots, explore the huge German freighter that was purposefully sunk in Aruba’s waters in 1940. Learn more in-depth details about the history of the ship from the crew before diving in to check it out. The ship is now home to yellowtail snapper, moray eels, stingrays, and a variety of native coral.

End with convenient drop-off back at your Aruba hotel.
