Went on their snorkel trip in early March when our cruise ship stopped in Curacao for the day. This was the most expensive tour on our 2-week cruise. The snorkling was not that great, but then I don’t think Aruba is particularly known for fantastic...More

This was a great day. Anthony, Rose and the mascot Buster all made us feel right at home. We wanted a shallow snorkel spot and the Spanish Lagoon was perfect. Lunch was great as well as the rum punch. I don't find the snorkeling great...More

Booked this outing based on previous reviews. Would not do again, or recommend to others. Trip began by motoring south down the west side of the island. Pretty unappealing, going by the industrial area, desalination plant and the smoldering, odiferous garbage dump. Baffled as to...More

This is a must do when on the island. The personal service you receive from Captain Anthony and his crew you just don’t get on the big sails. Sailboat is in excellent condition and the snorkeling is incredible. The drift snorkel is a must do....More
