Highlights
  • Get views of Aruba's underwater highlights without getting wet
  • Listen to historical and ecological commentary from a guide
  • Convenient central departure point
What to expect
  • Hop aboard a transfer boat departing from Oranjestad's De Palm Pie to be taken out to the Seaworld Explorer. Meet your guide, who will share historical and ecological facts about the sights as you travel. With dry clothing, you get views from the vessel's glassed-in, submerged viewing space of Arashi reef, teeming with tropical fish and other marine life. In contrast to snorkeling, during the submarine tour you can hear insightful commentary from your guide about the types of coral and fish you see. The next stop is the Antilla, a 423-foot (128-meter) German ship sunk during World War II. Snap photos of the colossal boat and its marine inhabitants, while your guide details history of the ship.

May get seasick. But worth the experience. Easy process of booking and tour guide was very enthusiastic. Especially if snorkeling is not your thing, this makes up for it

This is not a mature, colorful reef with dozens of species growing with hundreds of sea-life moving about the coral. The coral is scattered and the reef is very young, lacking the colorful array of species. Our guide explained this to us when we asked "where are the colorful coral?"
What we saw were grey and white features of the ocean bottom with some examples of emerging dark coral. Consequently, without the abundance of coral there were few fish moving throughout. We did spot barracuda, a turtle and a few schools of striped fish occasionally through the tour.
The shipwreck appears simply as broken chunks of metal. Unless you are learned in ship design it is difficult to tell what you are looking at.

What a wonderful experience especially if you’re someone like me that doesn’t exactly LOVE snorkeling. You get to see the beautiful ocean and all of its little residents surrounding an 81 year old ship wreck, the antilla. Angie & Bryan we’re absolutely AMAZING. I cannot wait to come back next year and experience this wonderful tour and island again and again and again!!!! THANK YOU ARUBA I LOVE YOU

Went on this tour with my husband and 2 teen children. Our tour guide was very informative, we all learned something on the tour. We continued to talk about the information we got on the tour at dinner and into the following day. The length of the tour was perfect, not too long, and not too short. I would recommend this tour.

What an all-around positive experience! Lovely sights, and an even more lovely staff. Our tour guide Angie was a bright light from start to finish - knowledgeable, great sense of humor ("Voila!"), and genuine through and through. Brian was an expert captain. We couldn't have asked for a better time. If you're thinking about going - just do it. You'll thank yourself later.
