Aruba Catamaran Tour Excursion Reviews
the weather was bad so we only received a ride to Palm Beach, we took a bus back to the ship.
Aruba - Last port of call, and our favorite. Beaches were way better than any of the other three stops, with perfect sand and no rocks. We took a 15 minute cab ride ($15 total each way for up to four passengers) from the pier to Palm Beach, where all the high rise resorts are located (Hyatt, Marriott, Ritz-Carlton, etc.) Some people knock this area of Aruba as being overly-commercialized (it looks like Miami Beach) but who cares ? It's definitely not a nature preserve area, but there are a million things to do right on the beach. We negotiated an excursion with a local vendor, Dolphin Water Sports: three hour catamaran cruise, with two snorkeling stops (one a huge sunken German WW II U-boat and second a traditional coral reef in 6-10 feet of water), and a third stop on a sandbar to hunt for starfish. We got unlimited rum drinks all day a lunch of sandwiches and fresh fruit, all for $45 p/p. Great time, great customer services, and great value !
We did a lunch/snorkel catamaran tour in Aruba. Great snorkeling. Beautiful colored water that is warm.
The sunset catamaran cruise was very relaxing and such a delightful way to view the shore! We enjoyed the music and dancing as well. Wonderful!
Sailaway Snorkle and Beach Cruise is awesome. Open bar and lunch provided.
