PRIVATE FULL DAY SNORKEL TRIP
Your day begins with a breakfast of freshly baked goodies, juice, and sparkling mimosas. You’ll sail to two of Aruba’s best snorkel stops with your experienced captain and crew. You will enjoy the freedom of sailing and discover the thrill of Aruba’s constant and soothing trade winds as you sail along the scenic coast.
Your first location is the famous wreck, “Antilla”, where you’ll spend about 45 minutes exploring. The Antilla, which sank more than 60 years ago, remains completely intact and is widely regarded as one of the best sunken shipwrecks in the Caribbean. In the crystal-clear water, she is an awesome sight to behold. Antilla, a popular shipwreck just off Aruba’s shores. Legend has it this 1939 German freighter likely carried supplies during WWII and was caught in Dutch waters following Germany’s invasion of Holland. The captain ordered the crew to open the valves and abandon ship rather than risk the ship falling into enemy hands. Explore the 400 foot Antilla along with a variety of colorful sea life including yellowtail snapper, green morays and southern stingrays. Keep an eye out for the possibility of a glimpse of a curious barracuda.
The next stop is in shallow waters of Catalina Bay you will brush up on your snorkeling skills as you spot angel fish, damsel fish and more swimming around sea fans and coral. Put on your snorkeling gear and descend under the crystal-clear turquoise waters and immediately find yourself transported into an underwater paradise. New to snorkeling? Not a problem! Your experienced captain and first mate will patiently work with you to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable experience. After all that snorkeling, you’ll no doubt have worked up quite an appetite. We provide a delicious lunch features a fresh crusty French bread, topped with salad, cheese or meat and delicious tropical fruits…not to mention the open cocktail bar. A variety of drinks, from rum to whiskey, soda to iced tea, and more are available to satisfy your thirst. Your captain and crew will see to it that you have a wonderful day in Aruba.
Your charter will be customized to your wishes, from setting the itinerary with the captain. Your wish is our command! The ultimate celebration of your wedding, birthday, bachelor party or corporate event or reserve the boat just for your significant other and you.
