Focused on personalized service and attention, particularly for the novice or inexperienced snorkeler, makes your trip especially attractive. With snorkel instruction, to give you a unique and memorable experience, put on your snorkeling gear and descend under the crystal-clear turquoise waters and immediately find yourself transported into an underwater paradise on this fun and interactive water excursion. Enjoy the underwater world while snorkeling and then tasting the great food that is freshly prepared every day and drinks. The 41 ft trimaran sailboat accommodates 45 people however maximum is capped at 35 in order to avoid mass tourism.

  • Spot a variety of colorful fish and explore the Antilla Wreck site
  • Trip departs from and returns to a convenient locale on Palm Beach
What to Expect
Meet at a convenient location on Aruba’s Palm Beach, from where you transfer via motorboat to the 41-foot (12-meter) trimaran (three-hulled sailing yacht) to begin your snorkeling and feasting adventure on Catalina Bay. Enjoy the ocean views from your comfortable cushioned seat as you make your way to a couple of different snorkeling sites, including the Antilla Wreck, a sunken freighter just off the shore. Jump into the turquoise water and experience the underwater world of colorful marine life, including parrotfish, yellowtail snapper, and even moray eels. The warm, shallow waters make this trip particularly ideal for novice snorkelers, and your onboard guides offer instruction if you’re new to the activity. You won’t go hungry on this cruise: Breakfast consists of homemade baked goods accompanied by Champagne if you like, while lunch features fresh sandwiches, salad, and fruit. The open bar includes Champagne for a festive toast to a successful, memorable trip as you make your way back to your original meeting point, where the tour ends.

oh yes no worries there in fact while they offered drinks it was with a reminder that drunk snorkeling is not a good idea so to please indulge but wisely and hydrate with water and other juices.
