Booked a 2 hour charter with Private Snorkleing Aruba and had a great time. Since we've done other snorkel, scuba and party cruises before, we just wanted to have a relaxing time and Capt. Rene was very accommodating. Would recommend him and his company!

We spent the day with Captain Rene. It was awesome. He takes you to places the big boats can't go. And it's a private snorkel trip. No worries about getting kicked in the head by 200 other snorkelers. Definitely worth the money!!!
