From your Aruba cruise port, you'll need to take a quick 15-minute taxi ride to the small pier where your boat is docked, there your professional, English-speaking crew will be waiting. This catamaran will take you to the best snorkel sites on the island. They will take you to the Boca Catalina Bay and the Antilla shipwreck. These reefs are perfect for those who have never snorkeled before; shallow calm water and there is always plenty to see!
While sailing to your first snorkel spot, The Antilla Shipwreck, the crew will serve some delicious finger foods and cold beverages while they share some funny stories. Sit back, relax, and take in the panoramic views while on your way to your first stop.
The Antilla is the largest WWII shipwreck in the Caribbean. This 400-foot freighter sank in May of 1940. The Antilla is lying on her port side in approximately 50 feet of water, but the top of the boat just barely misses the surface! The crew will provide you with snorkel equipment and instructions.
Back on board the catamaran, the open bar will be available to you with alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and, of course, great tropical music. All ingredients to guarantee you a GREAT time on board!!
There is plenty of room for everyone and there are both sunny areas to work on your tan as well as places in the shade. There is a restroom on board as well.
Up next is Boca Catalina Bay. This small bay has calm clear waters making it ideal for snorkeling and swimming. The shallow reef has a wide variety of colorful fish and corals. You might be able to see Barracudas, schools of French grunt, French angelfish, bluefin trevally, and Bermuda chub if the visibility is good. There is beautiful coral, gorgonian (soft coral), and sea fans. Don't forget your underwater camera to capture this other world.
When your cruise excursion in Aruba is completed, you may take a taxi to return to the cruise ship or continue exploring at your leisure and expense.
