Aruba Shore Excursion: 4x4 Tour and Natural Pool Snorkeling

See Aruba’s natural attractions on an off-road tour to the Natural Pool by 4WD open-air vehicle. After your cruise ship docks, start your shore excursion with pickup at the port, where you’ll be met by your guide. Receive a safety briefing, then hop behind the wheel of your 4x4 or settle into a passenger seat. The vehicles feature extra comfortable seats to cushion you from the bumpy ride.

Follow your guide in a caravan to Arikok National Park, a protected piece of Aruba that covers almost 20 percent of the island. En route, stop at natural and historical landmarks such as the Gold Mill Ruins and the Natural Bridge. View remnants of the island’s gold-prospecting days and marvel at ruins of the naturally formed limestone bridge that collapsed in 2005.

Continue over Aruba’s rugged landscape to the Natural Pool, a unique formation that sits right on the shore. Wade into the calm water and use your snorkeling gear to check out the fish and coral. Cool off with cold beverages during an hour of free time before returning to your starting point aboard your 4x4.

Satisfy your appetite with a provided hot lunch, followed by return transport to the cruise port.  For afternoon tours, lunch will be provided at the beginning of the tour.

This is a great way to see the Island. We wanted to experience the other part of Aruba away from the populated beaches. Aruba is so diverse and to see the rugged part, and experience the park you absolutely need a 4wheel drive vechicle. Our guide was Rocky, who gave us an amazing introduction to the history of Aruba . Our driver was Paulus who gave us a thrill ride. These guys are extremely experienced and gave us a great trip. Yes it is bumpy but we knew that and that was the fun of it all. This is a great excursion and we couldn't have been treated any better. They were so accommodating.
Don't expect great snorkeling in the pool, as there's not a lot of coral, but against one wall where the water comes in, I saw a lot of great little fish and coral. Enjoy

What a ride! The excursion began with transportation to the tour office where I signed a waiver. After the tour, I understood why I had to sign one. Seven of us in the back of an ATV with our expert driver, Rockey. First stop was a beautiful church. We then drove through picturesque roads until we hit the back roads, which is a euphemism. Rockey made sure we had the full experience of all- terrain jostling and bouncing. Thankfully, Rockey made sure we were all buckled in. Since the Natural Pool is often crowded, we stopped at a rather desolate yet beautiful beach. Then to the Natural Pool to snorkel just as the hoards from other tours exited. Rockey made sure we all safely made it into the pool, and before the next hoard arrived, our seven had the pool to ourselves for about 20 minutes. Colorful fish and a quiet pool replete with rock crawling black crabs to lend more of nature's uniqueness. The bumpy ride to the Natural Bridge then to the beginning where we enjoyed a delicious lunch. Rockey rocks!

This was an awesome excursion. We got to do and see so many things. Our guide George Tequila was super nice, informative, and helpful. He took pictures and helped the children. I would definitely recommend this if you are on the adventurous side. Definitely wear tennis or water shoes. Flip flops are problematic.

Best tour we've done. Had no idea we would fall in love with Aruba, thanks to Ralph and Andrew. We had a very extensive tour of Aruba complete with Casibari and Ayo Rocks, the natural pool was too dangerous due to high surf so we went to nearby beach and enjoyed. We saw so much of the island and they were very very informative. Would go back to Aruba and definitely book a tour with ABC-and request Ralph and Andrew!!!!

Such a unique tour. We loved it. The guides were amazing. Very knowledgeable and informative. Saw areas of Aruba that would not have seen otherwise. We booked this tour rather than the cruise ship excursions offered and were not disappointed.
