We did a private jeep tour (3 playas), brunch cruise and snorkel and sail. The jeep tour was great, Tonie was a great guide. We saw so many beautiful sites and learned so much about the island. We did the 3 playas tour which includes a Peruvian lunch and sandwich and fruit snack. First 2 beached we visited were too rough to swim but baby beach and mangel halto were beautiful. Brunch cruise makes 3 stops...2 close to shore and 1 shipwreck. Crew was great, food was decent and snorkeling was good. Drink as much or as little as you want. Bring sunscreen! Snorkel and sail we stayed on the boat and enjoyed the crews company and drinks. Great guys. If you get a chance have some drinks and eats at the restaurant on the pier. Highly recommend pelican!

We went for the afternoon snorkeling cruise and had a great time. Would definitely recommend for first time or experienced snorkelers. It's also a great way to see the coastline of Aruba from Palm Beach to Malmock/Arashi! The boat was staffed by friendly, helpful folks, and both snacks and drinks were provided. The boat was clean and offered easy access to the ocean along with having a water slide. The equipment was much better than what I have experience on other snorkeling adventures in Aruba. During the windy season the shorter afternoon cruise is best as the water gets choppy after awhile.

Booked this excursion through Carnival, $80/pp, 2 snorkel stops and beach time. Food and beverages included, no liquor until after the snorkeling was completed. Snorkel stops were on a reef and then on the Antilla, a WWII freighter scuttled by the Germans. Weather was good, seas a little choppy making the stop on the Antilla a little dicey for beginners and poor swimmers (but it is in open water). Visibility was good for us, but the wreck is 60' deep and you can only makes out some features of the ship while snorkeling. The crew was attentive and professional making sure that everyone had a good time. After stopping at the Antilla the boat made it's was toward a restaurant pier on Palm-Eagle Beach with everyone receiving a plate with chicken, ribs, corn on the cob and a macaroni salad. The food was very good and the setting was idyllic. Drinks were still flowing. After just over an hour on the beach we were treated to a gorgeous sunset and then a bus ride back to the ship. Unfortunately, as we walked out to the bus we discovered a shopping area right behind the beach that we would have liked to have walked around. This area is much nicer than the one by the wharf where the ships dock. For the money this was a very nice excursion.

Great time. Saw lots of fishes. Lively crew, gorgeous beach and the food on the pier was pretty good as well. Wish the rum was a little better quality but can't complain too much when its free!

I've been on party/snorkel cruises before. This one was just average. I was told it would be no more than 20-22 people on board but its was around 40. That wasn't a big issue. I didn't snorkel. But the more people, the longer the food, snorkel, and drink lines will be. The food was ok. It was light finger snacks like fruit, chicken nuggets, and fish fingers. The food went fast! I hated that they didn't provide any utensils, so people just had to grab the food with bare hands. So bring some hand sanitizer! You do get to see a sunken ship if you snorkel. You also can see the California Lighthouse which isn't much to really see. I would consider the other boat cruise company options next time.
