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.

The crew was outstanding, the boat was awesome, every break seemed to be filled with more food or drink. The snorkeling was fantastic, and using a lower snorkel was expensive but we think worth it. Thank you Rocher, Stephanie, & Jethro
