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!

Went snorkeling, 2 adults, 2 kids (ages 11 and 13). Trip was perfect length, we all enjoyed it immensely. The crew of the Arunsun was Orlando and Armando (? Not sure but he was terrific). Very professional and friendly, easy going but also got the job done. Great snorkeling, and catamaran was not too crowded and in good, cream condition.... More

We had a great time snorkeling as a family with them. The crew mates are very friendly and they explain everything. If you're confused or nervous about the equipment, don't be. They will have you in the water and comfortable in no time. The drinks are a bit watery, but the food is better than I expected. We saw the... More

We spent half of our vacation at the Aruba watersports center - parasailing, tubing, and the 2.5 hour snorkeling and sailing trip, which was the best deal in Aruba. For $42, you get a nice sail on a big catamaran, open bar, lunch, and snorkeling in 2 different spots, including the famous shipwreck. The crew for all activities were professional... More

The Arusun crew is fantastic! If you need assistance just ask, all equipment is provided. I was surprised at how much of the shipwreck we could see. There was a light lunch and beverages included in our price. Lots of fish in the snorkeling.

We had a good time snorkeing. The boat does not go too far offshore, yet we were able to snorkel in 70 feet of water over the wreck of The Antilla. They had an open bar and had sandwiches and chips after we left the first snorkeling sight. The boat was nice, but it does not dock at a pier,... More
