Have a wonderful time with friends and family by cruising around Aruba in your private boat on a 26 ft Bayliner deck boat. Create the perfect itinerary with your captain and enjoy a customized tour. Put on your snorkeling gear and descend under the crystal-clear turquoise waters and immediately find yourself transported into an underwater paradise on this fun and interactive water excursion. In these shallow waters of Catalina Bay you will brush up on your snorkeling skills as you spot angel fish, damsel fish and more swimming around sea fans and coral. New to snorkeling. Not a problem! Your experienced captain and guide will patiently work with you to make sure you have a safe and enjoyable experience. We can accommodate up to 10 people on our Bayliner. EVERY ADDITIONAL PERSON is $35. (Babies 0-2 years free)  EVERY EXTRA HOUR $125.00 per booking. Please let us know if you would like to add extra time. The balance can be paid in cash on the beach, on the day of sailing

We had wanted to avoid tours with large groups so we went with a 2-hour private snorkeling trip for three people with Octopus. We had taken a great snorkeling tour with them in the past and felt comfortable booking with them again. We booked the tour with J.R. at the Octopus
