Great experience from the start. Jose was a great guide. Very pleasant and great with instructions to operate the boat. Was a bit choppy at sea however was expected for a windy day. Snorkel site was great and putting around was a blast.

Great family based company
Jun 2021
First major vacation with family post covid, so we decided on a private charter to reduce exposure to crowds. Let me just say that this company exceeded my expectations! We did a short 2 hour charter and they fed us snacks and light lunch (sandwiches) and never allowed our glasses to be empty! Those who wanted got a chance to snorkel and they made sure that plenty of fish were seen. We had a very relaxing cruise and my only regret was not booking for more time. It is a family owned business that are professional and friendly and very accommodating.
We went back to their hut two days later while at Palm beach and they helped us schedule parasailing, jet skiing and tube boating for our group with good prices because we were repeat customers. Now that’s how you do business. Don’t waste your time with anyone else!

Jose made the trip perfect!
We rented a 6 person Donut boat and it was a great time.
We rented it for Tuesday from 3-6pm however when we got there, they said the boat was broke. We had to reschedule for Wednesday 9am-12 noon. Boat is very slow but it was great for privacy. We anchored and went snorkeling. Then our guide Jose came by to check on us. He actually joined us and did magic. He was the bright side of the trip. His talent and personality was amazing. We all loved him.

Great cruise but poor follow through on food allergies
Jun 2021 • Family
Great boat and crew. Unfortunately they did not honor the special accommodations we made regarding gluten free food on the boat. The did note that they got and agreed to the request, but they simple forgot. This put a dent in what was otherwise a wonderful private sunset cruise. We have taken other charters and they were able to easily accommodate us. My take is that they will promise anything when booking, but will they deliver???

Octopus Boat with Jose
May 2021 • Couples
We rented a private donut boat and it was awesome – – especially Jose who had to come help us with our anchor not once but twice! The best part was that he was so friendly about it and didn’t make us feel foolish for making simple mistakes. Highly highly recommend this company and Jose in particular!

Ask for Jose!
May 2021 • Friends
Went to Aruba with my friends. We booked for 3 hours in the morning slot. Had hotel pick up and drop off. We had Jose as our guide. He was so fun and entertaining! Made our drinks perfect everytime and the food was great. You can play your music on the Bluetooth speaker and the boat has great scenery. We snorkeled for a little and enjoyed the waters. Would definitely recommend booking with them. Especially if you want it to exclusively be just you and your friends/family.
It was just great vibes and a great time.
