    The Antilla
    Stop: 45 minutes - Admission included
    You’ll sail to two of Aruba’s best snorkel stops with our experienced captain and crew. The first location is the famous shipwreck ‘Antilla’, where you’ll spend 45 minutes of exploring. The Antilla sank more than 60 years ago and remains completely intact. Legend says the ship is a 1939 German freighter likely carried supplies during WW2 and was caught in the Dutch waters following Germany’s invasion of Holland. Explore the 400 foot Antilla easily and safe with guidance of our experienced crew.

This was a great experience! The catamaran is a nice size for the size of the group (only about 12-20 people right now per charter). The boat leaves out of Palm Beach at 9am and they are quick to offer you a mimosa and snack. The crew was very personable, especially the owner of the company who actually regularly works charters. They take you to the shipwreck for a 30 minute snorkel, with several snacks along the way (muffins, chicken salad wraps, bagels with cream cheese and lox) and continue to offer champagne and liquor drinks along the way. Then you sail down to a more shallow area for an additional 45 minute snorkel followed by a sandwich and more drinks! I was traveling alone but made to feel welcome by the staff as well as the other guests who were on my particular charter.

The captain and crew were wonderful for finding us 2 great snorkeling spots. One had interesting sea life and the other had a shipwreck.
Boarding the boat was easy and great tips on staying safe in an area we hadn't explored before.
Champagne cocktails were refreshing and brunch food was good. Gave me a few ideas of my own.
We will take friends back.

We booked this cruise the day before, and it was amazing! We actually ended up running a few minutes late, but we made sure to call ahead to ask them to wait, which they did (only 10 minutes though so make sure you arrive 30 minutes early). The unlimited food and drinks were absolutely delicious. The crew was very knowledgeable and super nice as well. They even let us play our own music even though the cruise wasn't private.

Thank you for your review! When guests call us that they are delayed, we contact our crew and ask them if it is possible to wait. Sometimes it is indeed possible as in your situation! 😊 We are happy to hear that you enjoyed out champagne brunch tour! Going in the morning has so many plus sides as the sun is not yet at its peak and the water is the perfect temperature and so beautifully clear! Our crew loves what they do! and more importantly we all care about getting to know our guests, where they are joining us from and what brings them to Aruba! We are looking forward to having you with us on the Octopus again :)

We had an AMAZING time!!!! The 2 men on the cruise (I forgot their names) were attentive and nice. The mimosas were just ok, but the rum and pineapple was good. A suggestions; they should have disinfectant wipes available because the snorkel mouth piece and googles are reusable and I doubt they thoroughly cleanse them. I always carry a pack of Lysol wipes and hand wipes while on vacation so I was able to clean the crevices of the mask. The music was painful to hear because it was new hip-hop which is very vulgar but it was the younger girls on the boat playing it from their phone. Snorkeling was FUN and the shipwreck was cool. The boat is comfortable so overall it was a good experience that I enjoyed with my girls on our girls trip.
