During our visit at my sons/daughter in law's place at Aruba we made a boat-, swim- and snorkeltrip. Keywords: relaxing, good drinks and food and nice swimming. Something to do again.

This place is awesome! I completed my PADI advanced open water certification last week with Canicio at Aruba Watersports Centre. I did 5 dives over 3 days and it was AMAZING! Canicio was wonderful! He really knows his stuff. Last February (2016) he completed his 10,000th instructor dive!!!! I haven’t been diving since last June and I was REALLY nervous,... More

We stumbled into Aruba Watersports Center as we were walking along the beach, and found them to be the most helpful, welcoming group of people who were offering snorkeling and scuba trips. We really enjoyed our 9am snorkeling excursion with Orlando (first mate) and captain - I think Armand - who were both knowledgeable and fun. Snorkeling first stopped at... More

We had a great time with Captain Hector and Andrew on the Arusun. They were great with the history lessons. Hector used to be a high school teacher! Andrew was very sweet and helped everyone with the snorkeling equipment. I saw a gold spotted snake eel and another eel over at Boca Catalina. Great time and the food and drinks... More

there are many snorkel tours on the beach. We LOVED this one. The crew was knowledgeable and fun. They gave a great history of the Island, the waters.. and the fact that we were on a boat with quite a history. All tours go to the same spots - this one had some cred... loved it!
