What You Can Expect

Happy Hour Sail and Snorkel in Aruba with Optional Snuba

Snorkel in Aruba

Enjoy sailing on the turquoise waters of the Caribbean in the late afternoon sun when the sky begins to prepare for a majestic sunset and the seascape is spectacular. After pickup from your hotel, hop on board the 70-foot (20-meter) long catamaran, sit back and relax with a refreshing cocktail from the open bar and enjoy some tasty tropical snacks before hopping in the water for your snorkel or snuba adventure!

Discover the beauty of Aruba’s underwater world at two great snorkel sites, including the shipwrecked Antilla – a 40-foot (13-meter) German freighter sunk during World War II and now encrusted with coral. Follow your guide through the water and explore this historical wreck, portions of which are only partly submerged. You’ll be amazed by the pristine surroundings as you discover an abundance of marine life in the Caribbean! After heading back to land, you'll be transferred back to your hotel.

Optional Upgrade: SNUBA
Upgrade your tour to include an optional Snuba experience, Aruba's most popular underwater activity. If you like to snorkel, but aren’t ready for scuba diving, then try Snuba (SNorkel+scUBA)! A certified Snuba guide will lead you on your underwater tour for 45 minutes, including instruction. You’ll go beyond snorkeling and breathe easily underwater – descending to a depth of 20 feet (6 meters) – without wearing heavy, restrictive scuba diving gear. No snorkeling or scuba certification is needed.

We did the Snorkel tour with the Snuba which was amazing. We got to be almost at the bottome with the ship. I've neve done anything like that. It was completely worth spending the extra money to upgrade from just snorkel. We dove at the ship wreck first and then went to the other spot which after being after to go lower in the water without having to go up for air it wasn't the same. But the whole this was amazing. The guys on the ship were fun as well. We def got some awesome pictures from the dive.

The tour company was great! the crew on the catamaran was beyond welcoming.. Snorkeling was fun we got to see many wonderful fish and the shipwreck was pretty cool too. The catamaran was large enough where it didn't feel too crowded . Great experience it was so good we went back for the sunset cruise.

I had a spectacular time! The crew was awesome, the appetizers and drinks were tasty! I loved being able to see a wreck underneath the ocean, the marine life as beautiful and colorful as I imagined and the catamaran ride was smooth! I will definitely reccommend!

The best activity we have done in Aruba. Catamaran huge for few people. The second snorkelling spot was great.

We did the scuba and it was fantastic!! Great instructor and guide! The weather became so windy that the snorkel was very hard to do. But time on boat with drinks, food and views was terrific ! I would do it again!

4 star rating: Recommended August 2013

i really enjoyed this tour. Only problem was that there were two dive spots, however you were only able to dive at one of the spots. So half of us saw the German ship, and the other half the coral reef. Would have loved to see both with the money we paid for the tour.

We really liked the Happy Hour Snorkel Sail on the Palm Pleasure. There were alot of smaller fish of different kinds..& a few larger ones. I'd gladly go on that catamaran again. I had some concerns about sea-sickness, but this boat was smooth as ever. The food was just ok,..not very good options for vegetarians (lettuce and cheese sandwich-may want to bring your own food). The snorkel life vests were a bit of a hassle to use so I/we went without and it was much better. Music played was distorted but set aside those few things,...we generally enjoyed the trip and would do it again.
