Overview
Start off your 3-Hour snorkel tour with Octopus Aruba with mimosas in hand, Cheers to another beautiful vacation on the crystal Caribbean Sea and Welcome on the Octopus! On our way to our first snorkel stop our experienced crew will commence with our American Brunch, this consists of 5 food items which will be passed around throughout the trip.

Our first snorkel stop is “The Antilla Ship Wreck” and the second is “Boca Catalina Bay”. We spend on average 45 minutes at each snorkel stop where our crew will provide you with all of your snorkel gear and safety equipment! Need help snorkeling? No problem! Our crew is there to help you. Our cocktail bar is open during the entire cruise, we strongly advise that our guests do not take advantage of the bar before our snorkel stops due to safety reasons.

Our open cocktail bar includes: sodas, juices, vodka, gin, scotch, white rum, mamasita, aruba ariba.

  • Shallow swimming site and onboard instruction ideal for novice snorkelers
  • Spot a variety of colorful fish and explore the Antilla Wreck site

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.

We took the morning champagne/snorkeling brunch at the recommendation of some friends who had been previously. We had a 9 year old and a 13 year old with us. The catamaran was clean and spacious with plenty of room for everyone. When you’re out snorkeling, you realize how much

Thank you for your review! Our boat has quite a high capacity, but we prefer to keep our boats to an absolute max of 36 people so that our guests have enough room to enjoy their sail with us! We are stocked up with food and drinks for children and adults of all ages. We have been speaking about adding something extra to our boat trips so stay tuned! We are looking forward to having you with us on the Octopus again in the near future:)
