Absolute perfect adventure. Staff very efficient. Very relaxing and exhilarating.
The tour, food, and drinks were perfect, and we loved how funny and welcoming the staff was.
It was awesome!! The guys on the boat were great! However one of the ladies taking our passes was kind of rude.
Outstanding!! The crew was great, the snorkeling was fantastic, and the food and drinks were awesome!
Definitely do this if you go to Aruba!
It was wonderful, at first my daughters admonished me for planning my roundtrip pick up and drop off to our Aruba hotel. Then they admonished me for planning our snorkeling tour to Catalina Island with food and a magnificent Captain and Crew. They gave my adult daughter who could not swim one on one attention and she was snorkeling like everyone else. The other daughter thought she could sit and watch everyone else, but gave in and snorkeled until the crew told her we had to leave the area. It was the best water excursion all of us ever had and we are well traveled, the food was excellent. We had the time of our lives!!!!! Thank You, Jamila Ali WHNP BC MSN
It's wonderful! I could see all the colors of the Aruba's sea.
This catamaran cruise was awesome! We saw some beautiful fish and even a couple starfish. The crew was great and I enjoyed the locations that we stopped at. I would definitely recommend booking this excursion.
Best way to book instead of going through the cruise ship. A lot less people on our boat, great hot lunch, and awesome drinks. By far the best way to book is through victor. I recommend this tour to anyone who likes to snorkel. The guys on the boat were awesome also. Will book Again on another cruise
A great time! The boat was not so huge, there were the perfect amount of fellow snorkelers (not too big like some other outfits) and the crew was professional and very friendly. They seemed to really care about us having a great time. the food was excellent (as opposed to sandwiches served by another outfit) and the drinks flowed freely. The water slide off the back of the boat was a perfect and fun addition. I would recommend this excursion for anyone who enjoys snorkeling, sailing, and Aruba in general.
Crew was great, food and drinks were great. The shipwreck was ok, to many other boats out there at the same time, water was a bit rough. went to one of the snorkel sites later in the week on our own, just as much fun. Would recommend this.
The tour was great. The only problem was that the driver that was supposed to pick us up for the event never showed and we had to scramble to find a way yo get to the pier before the boat left.
This was a very enjoyable trip. We were brought to three different snorkel sites including a ship wreck. Equipment was provided but we used our own. The captain was very professional and informative. Lunch was tasty and there was plenty to eat and drink.
There were four people in our group, three with no prior snorkeling experience. The staff didn't provide any general snorkeling know-how tips before the first dive, so we made due with the information furnished by our one experienced member (one dive, 40 years in the past). After several panicked minutes everyone was able to get their faces in the water and see some of the abundant marine life, though there was a significant amount of coughing due to swallowing and breathing salt water. But in spite of the steep learning curve, everyone had a good time. The staff was personable, the boat comfortable, and the three dive locations were beautiful beyond words. You will be better off if you can get in some snorkeling practice before you hit the water. Don't miss the chance to see and experience what is just below the water surface.
Had some problems with my transportation to Aruba so I had to change my snorkeling cruises several times. Maria did a great job of getting everything right!!
Very worth the money. We had a great time on the Aruba luncheon snorkel sail.
The snorkeling was amazing! We went to 3 great sites and there were fish everywhere. The water was amazingly clear. The crew had great personalities and were very helpful. The drinks were delicious and the lunch was good and filling. I would definitely do this trip again.
The tour was not very much fun. The water was very choppy and cloudy at the shipwreck so it was hard to snorkel and hard to see anything. Also the lunch was supposed to be deli so we thought it would be sandwiches but it was fish and rice and other sides. So my husband went hungry. Usually on these snorkel trips the crew is really fun and there is music and dancing. Not here it was pretty boring.
We visited Aruba by cruise ship and booked this trip to avoid the cruise ship crowds and inflated prices. The pick up point was easy to access and close to the pier. The driver was prompt and friendly. Our wait to get on the catamaran when arriving at the pier was lengthy and the check in process was somewhat unorganized. The staff however was very friendly both on the pier and catamaran. The catamaran was spacious and in good repair. There were only 12 of us on the entire thing. The lunch was average and typical of this type of voyage. The snorkeling was fair this date because it was windy and the water visibility was low. we have snorkeled in Aruba before and it is usually fantastic and well worth it. This trip is definitely worth doing and I would recommend it.
The first snorkel spot was good but the staff did not assist with water entry or exit which was difficult for many passengers. At the second snorkel spot the water was so rough my 66 year old mother had to get out of the water and was so fatigued from trying to swim against the current and swallowing lots of salt water in doing so that she skipped the third spot. As other reviews detailed, the food was good and plentiful.
Pros - Beautiful sites chosen with lots of fish. The ship wreck was wonderful where we could clearly see to the bottom as the scuba divers swam below us. Their air bubbles tickled us as they rose to the surface. -A great place was chosen to anchor for lunch where there was access to a beach cove and places to stand up in the sand. - Food was great. - Drinks were served maybe too freely. I drink beer and beer was not available. - Ship was nice, we did not visit the bathroom. - Pick up by van was on time. Cons - Ship scheduled to leave 30 min after we arrived. We rushed to catch our van only to wait at the dock where we waited for the crew to ready the boat. - their time is more valuable than ours. - The ship did not have slip proof coating on stairs. My wife and one other person slipped and fell before the crew placed a towel on the stairs. - Crew was not quite as professional as other catamaran excursions. I have seen uniforms worn and you could clearly see the roles of each crew member. On this trip I could not tell who was a crew member and who was a guest. The guests were of mature mixed age and not the partying crowd. - Accent was so heavy on the crew member providing instructions that you could not understand his English.
