The day we went the water was rough but we had a great time. The guides were great. I was worried about my son snorkeling in the rough water but the guides took him with them and he had a blast. They even gave him a nick name (little tuna) because he swam through the tough stuff with no problem.... More

My wife and have done kayaking and we did not know this adventure included snorkeling. First time snorkeling and a bit nervous but great guides and felt safe the entire time, Carlos and staff are great. Highly recommend taking some bug spray for the first fifteen or twenty minutes in the morning you have to sit through a period of... More

We had a good time learning to ride in a kayak and did a bit of snorkelling by the reef. The guide and driver were friendly and informative. The lunch was included and at the local brewery.

This was my first experience kayaking. I loved it. The guides were patient and knowledgeable. It was very well organized and the van driver that picked us up was great. The snorkeling was the best ever even in Aruba. Would definitely go again.

I think Carlos has a reputation for being the best no matter who you talk to. He drives the van that picks you up and follows you along the shore throughout the trip. When I first saw the kayaks I was was thinking what did I get myself in to. At 58 and semi overweight I had never been in... More

Aruba Kayak Adventure was a lot of fun! Carlos picks you up in the van and takes you to Spanish Lagoon, where Santo provides some kayaking basics for those who haven't kayaked before, life vests, paddles, and kayaks. Then you set out in the water and head for Mangel Halto beach. You are paddling against the wind for this part,... More

Hubby and I did this with a sit-upon tandem which I had never used before but was given great instruction by our guides. Wind was very strong yesterday so going out was tough but we made it. After a water break we put on the fins and masks and did the best snorkeling so far in our 9 years of... More

We just got back from Aruba and did this tour on our first day (since they were booked the rest of the days). When I faxed my info from the hotel, my credit card info didn't go through but they picked us up anyway and figured we'd get the money part figured out later (which would never happen in the...

While the boat/snorkeling tours are mostly booze cruises, this is an adventure for the rest of us. First you kayak a ways to a beautiful beach. Make sure you have sunscreen and this is likely against the wind, and the toughest part of your day. You park the kayaks at the beach, take a break, then snorkel out to a... More

This was the best excursion I did in Aruba. The water was super calm, so paddling was easy. I ended up falling out of my kayak, but Coco was there right away to help. Coco, Carlos, and Sindin were great the whole time. Coco has amazing eyesight, I couldn't figure out why he was so keen on pointing out a... More
