Oranjestad and snorkelling

Is it far to go (walking?) from the cruise terminal to a beach for good snorkelling?

I would say it is too far to walk from the cruise terminal for good snorkeling. One of the best snorkeling operations in Aruba is Aruba Bob. Here's a video showing you an interview with Kent and what you see in the water at Mangel Alto where they snorkel, which is about 15 minutes driving from Oranjestaad.


You might also take a sailing cruise with Tranquillo for the day and go snorkeling. The Tranquillo leaves from Oranjestaad Harbour, only a few minutes walk from where you exit the Cruise Ship area. Here's a video showing where you exit the cruise ship area and a few of the attractions available on the island.


Enjoy your visit.
