PRIVATE SNORKELING TRIP
On this trip, we snorkel at “The German Freighter” and the second is “Catalina Bay”. THE BEST STOPS FOR SNORKELING!
If you snorkel, all of your gear will be provided for you. The crew will pass out the gear and show you how to use it. While in the water, you will experience the crystal clear, blue water of the Caribbean and the multitude of sea life at your own pace and leisure. You can see a variety of fish, coral, and even sponges in these waters! The clarity is good so bring your waterproof camera to capture the beauty. Whether you are a novice or an experienced snorkeler, the captain and crew are on hand to ensure that you have a safe and truly enjoyable time.
From the bay, you will head to the Antilla, a popular shipwreck just off Aruba’s shores. Explore the 400 foot Antilla. This cargo ship was launched in 1939 and scuttled in 1940 when Germany invaded Holland during WWII. Back on board, we’ll make our way to Catalina Bay for a bit more underwater exploration. The crystal-clear water, only 8-10 feet deep, is ideal for viewing the colorful tropical marine life that inhabit Aruba’s aqua-colored wonderland. Many species of coral, including brain and star coral, and a diverse population of fish, including parrotfish and blue tangs, are some of the beautiful creatures you’ll most likely encounter. When you are finished with your time in the water, the crew will assist you back on the boat.
Get dried off and you will have a light lunch of fresh-baked crusty bread topped with cheese and meat as well as fresh tropical fruit while enjoying your sail through Aruba’s coastline back to Palm Beach. There is even an open cocktail bar serving cocktails prepared with rum, vodka, whiskey gin, Aruba Ariba, sodas, and water. The perfect way to spend your time in Aruba as you recline along the deck and take in the sea breezes as you, reluctantly, return to reality. Who could ask for a more relaxing afternoon? Your captain and crew will see to it that you have a wonderful day in Aruba.
