Aruba Snorkeling Excursion Reviews
This was one of the best ship's excursions I've ever been on. We walked straight from the ship onto the Catamaran...no bus! We took off for the two snorkel sites and the ship staff was wonderful. They were friendly and professional and offered non alcoholic drinks during the entire trip out there. After the snorkeling the bar was open and they had all kinds of cocktails. They drove us to a dock and pulled up right to a restaurant. We literally stepped out of the catamaran and into a restaurant and they handed us a plate with barbecue food that was pretty good. We then had about 40 minutes to enjoy the gorgeous beach. They had chairs just for us and came around offering us the free drinks the whole time. There really isn't one thing they could have done better. This was with Pelican tours via the ship so if you book this, ask if this is the company they are still using.
We had a great time and we saw some different types of fish beyond a normal excursion
Atlantis shipwreck snorkel trip, a little bit bumpy and windy but still enjoyable
I wish we could have spent more time in this port. Next time!
Took an enjoyable boat ride to a snorkeling spot (lots of fish and coral), then to the sunken ship. The water was choppy at the sunken ship and very deep. It was also crowded with other boats and divers present. Many of the older and more feeble people on the excursion stayed on the boat and just watched others snorkel(a very smart choice). We had a great time on the boat ride back with complementary rum punches!
Walked around the shops in Aruba (lots to choose from) and ate a little snack. A very enjoyable day!
I took the Mi Dushi cruise. Nothing wrong with the crew or boat, but it did not live up to my expectation of being on a sail boat. We were there on windy day - so water was choppy and visibility poor. The lunch was really good!
If you want a relaxed day on the water take this trip, if you want snorkel and fish - well I wish I had done snorkel in Bonaire.
SAIL ARUBA ON THE MIDUSHI
What an incredible crew. I loved everything from the fun bus ride, the water taxi, snorkeling training, snorkeling over the wreck, and even swinging (ok more like falling) form the rope swing. It was a blast and the "snack" was a full meal of rice, bbq chicken, fish, and salad. I had never snorkeled before and they took great care of me. I would definitely do this excursion again!.
Really fun. Loved the Rum Punch on the way back.
We loved the snorkeling - the seas were a bit rough and current was strong, but still it was fun. We had over 70 people on our catamaran, and most were "older". When they got in the water to snorkel I was a bit nervous for them because there were only 4 crew members on the catamaran - I think there should have been a few more crew members or less people there in case of emergency. It was obvious many of them had never snorkeled before. Two older people weren't paying attention to where they were going and swam over my husband, pushing him down causing to go down on some coral. A little instruction from the crew might have helped. We did 2 snorkeling stops, and many of them didn't dive off at the 2nd stop.
lovely catamaran sail - beautiful clear water to see fish - then to sunken ship site - scary dark blue water - I then decided to pack it in and drink some rum punch. No shortage of punch! Nice staff, clean boat and equipment.
Sailaway Snorkel & Beach Cruise--very enjoyable with amazing snorkeling just offshore from the catamaran plus at a second location a bit further from shore where we viewed the sunken WWII German freighter, the Antilla. The crew was knowledgeable, professional, and fun. It included an open bar and all snorkel equipment. After the snorkeling we docked at Pelican Pier for a delicious barbecue meal that featured thick juicy ribs, chicken, beans, macaroni salad, roll, and fruit salad & open bar. We had some time to spend at the beach before being transported by bus back to the ship.
AR48-Sail, Snorkel, Swim & Swing--Great excursion. Got to swing from a rope off a Pirate Ship into the water.
We booked a private boat to take us out snorkeling for two hours at two different locations. The price of the snorkeling was rather cheap for including refreshments! The two young men aboard the ship were fantastic and friendly. They knew a lot about the island and were great. The locations of snorkeling were great, a beautiful reef and a sunken WW2 German ship. I would highly recommend their tours to anyone anytime and they have convinced me to visit Aruba in the future.
