My boyfriend and I stayed in Aruba for a week. It's definitely worth heading to De Palm Island for a day. Private island to do any watersport you choose or just relax on the beach. We had signed up for sea trek, which is underwater helmet diving. It was a great experience for those who are non-swimmers! The crew were extremely friendly which made the experience even better.
Unbelievable! Would definitely recommend the Sea Trek. Island is very nice and well maintained. Food was good and abundant.
De Palm was an awesome experience and I would definitely do it again. The snorkeling was premier!
This trip was fun, but we should have done the half day instead of the whole day. It was just me and my new husband, no kids. If we had kids, I think it would have been more fun.
Nice day to spend in the beach. Amazing parrotfish. Good value. Foods and drinks all inclusive. Printed voucher must be switched in advance with the original one at the tour operator's office.
We opted to book this excursion through Viator rather than our cruise ship in hopes of saving money. In hindsight, it turned out to a bit of a hassle. I was told to call Aruba directly to confirm details. This took three separate costly phone calls. We were told to be there at 9:00 a.m. on excursion day, but the bus didn't get there for over an hour. Once on the island, however, we had a great time. Snorkeling was outrageous: incredible, beautiful fish were at arm's length. The island was nice and empty, which was great, and was well maintained with wonderful facilities. The water park was awesome - we were like little kids. The frozen drinks were excellent, but the food left a little to be desired. The time went too quickly and before we knew it, it was time to head back to the ship. It's worth the money if you take advantage of the food and drink. We appreciated the air conditioned bus ride to and from the ferry, too!
Everyone, all ages, had a great time. Snorkeling was fantastic, water park lots of fun! No crowds. Late pick up, but they extended the tour 30 minutes on De Palm Island and gave us 6 free t-shirts.
It was ok. We thought the "nice" lunch closed a little early, as we had to scurry to get our sea trek in AND catch a guided snorkel tour. By the time we finished both, the lunch buffet had closed, and we were left with only the snack shack fried foods to eat. The staff are all very nice, and don't forget to take your camera over to the banana boat with you, the staff on the boat will take pics for you!
Very nice, great snorkeling and loved the water park. Very disappointed the banana boats weren't running. Food mediocre at best.
Thanks to all the life guards, they are very responsible and make sure everything is okay before they take you out for the snorkeling tour. Don't expect much from the food and the drinks, but they are acceptable. The only downside is their time management, our pick up was about half an hour late to their island and the hotel drop off bus was again late for more than 30 mins. Everyone was waiting for the bus to come. There are lots of families and everyone is very tired after all. Lots of blue parrot fish, it's worth to see after all.
