loved our first trip

we have been home for just over a week now and catching up on life. We had a great time in Aruba and wouldn't hesitate to go again if we found another affordable deal. Although I didn't post any questions of my own this trip, I did get alot of useful information from this forum and wanted to say THANKYOU. We stayed at the Ren Marina (adult side) and would be happy to answer any questions. We also spent an afternoon on The Black Pearl and really enjoyed that snorkel trip.

Did you notice if they had tshirts for sale on the Black Pearl trip, like the ones they advertise on their website?

Hi, we had a great time on the Black Pearl, it's not your typical loud raunchy boat trip. no music, good food, good drinks, only 20 people per boat which means they interact with EVERYBODY and remember all the names too. they have a link on here also they're own website. if you do decide to go, book early as the boat fills up quick.

PaWillow, they are happy to sell shirts on the Black Pearl trip; be aware that they may not have your size. I bought a big one, hoping it might shrink a bit, but dang! It's very good quality. Now it gets worn to bed.

Robinc9, I think you should try the half-day excursion first. If you don't love it, you haven't lost much. If you go back, you can go bigger!

retrogirl: Glad you had a good time! Aruba IS seductive, isn't she?

Robinc9,

Check out Aruba Bob Snorkeling. They snorkel at Mangel Alto and have the "water scooters" to pull you through the sea. Nice guys, too. Here's my video interview with Kent, including underwater footage.

Enjoy your visit.
