What You Can Expect

Catalina Bay and Antilla Shipwreck Snorkel Cruise

Antilla Shipwreck

Following pickup at your Aruba hotel, travel to Palm Beach's pier to board your luxury catamaran. Climb on board and greet your friendly crew, take advantage of the open bar and help yourself to some snacks while the captain navigates the boat towards your first stop. 

Stop at Catalina Bay, a secluded bay with calm, clear water that is ideal for learning to snorkel. Listen to a short safety briefing, don your mask, flippers and snorkel and jump in. In a depth of approximately 15 feet (5 meters) view sea fans and coral, and float through groups of angelfish, blue parrotfish and damselfish. 

Climb back on board your catamaran and cruise towards the Antilla wreck. One of the island's most famous snorkeling spots, this 400-foot (122-meter) German freighter was purposefully scuttled off Aruba's waters in 1940 to avoid capture by the Dutch. 

Dive in and enjoy 30 to 50 feet (9 to 15 meters) of visibility around the ship, which is now home to an array of diverse marine life. See butterfly fish, stingrays, moray eels and yellowtail snapper. Swim over to the starboard side of the freighter, which is entirely covered with brain coral, star coral, and white-tipped fire coral.

When your 3-hour snorkeling adventure is over, board the catamaran and enjoy more snacks and drinks as your captain takes you back to Palm Beach for drop-off at your hotel.

I went on this tour with my cousins while we were visiting Aruba. We all had a lot of fun even though not all of us were interested in the snorkeling part of the trip. It's a wonderful day out on a catamaran, there are non-stop drinks, a slide off the boat if you just want to slip down into the water, and they walked around with snacks that were just enough to hold us over until we got back on shore. The staff was great, too. And while there is not an overwhelming amount of variety to the fish we viewed snorkeling, it was still fun. Well worth the price.

Great excursion! It was wavy at the sunken ship which affected visibility but otherwise a great value and would do it again!
