Went here as part of a snorkeling tour. It was awesome. It is very deep water though and quite a bit off shore where the water tends to be a bit choppier. Definitely wear a life jacket while snorkeling here. You can't swim to this by shore, take a boat or a tour. It would have been nice though to... More

If diving Aruba, the Antilla is the one dive site not to miss. They are doing a great job building reefs.

This shipwreck exceeded my expectations. I really wasn't expecting much, but thoroughly enjoyed snorkeling here. Saw some fish we hadn't seen in any of the other snorkel spots. We did this on a Mi Dushi tour, which I highly recommend. I'll bet its even better to dive here, but we had an awesome time snorkeling here. You can still see... More

Most of the snorkel boats go there and the water is generally clear to about 60 feet. It is also a great scuba dive but on a clear day you can see everything with a mask an fins. It is a long swim from the beach and the current is against you on the way back. Even good swimmers should... More

I brought my family to dive and snorkel this 400 foot German Cargo wreck from WWII. The story of the boat makes the trip that much more exciting. Prepare to see lots of cool fish including puffer fish, eel, barracuda, and schools of other colorful fish. The visibility is also pretty good as well. For divers, the max depth is... More

We snorkeled over it, wish we would have had time to scuba dive to it too! The water is clear, so there is no problem with viewing it- all the way to the cannons and the front deck- awesome piece of history

Enjoyed the dive, especially admiring the changes time has on this crumbling wreck. Was very surprised when a snorkeller made it down to 35 feet, tapped me on the shoulder, gave me the diver OK and then fist bumped me. Heck, I couldn't get down to that without a tank, let alone be social! The wreck is falling apart and... More
