The Antilla Shipwreck Sail and Snorkel Trip
After you arrive at the Palm Beach meeting point, you will board a tender for your ride from the beach out to your waiting 50-foot catamaran sailing yacht. Once on board, you will enjoy the freedom of sailing and discover the thrill of Aruba's constant and soothing trade winds as you sail along the scenic coast for approximately one hour with no more than 40 guests. The multihull yacht design offers you a smooth and stable ride, while you lounge on our spacious decks and experience our gracious hospitality and friendly captain and crew.
Sail to the famous Antilla shipwreck, home to millions of tropical sea dwellers. The Antilla, which sank more than 60 years ago, remains completely intact and is widely regarded as one of the best sunken shipwrecks in the Caribbean. Here, you will have approximately 45 minutes of snorkeling.
Depending on weather and sea conditions that day, you will then sail to one of the vibrant local reefs for an additional 45 minutes of snorkeling, where you can see the reef and its inhabitants.
Your trip also includes snacks and complimentary beverages, including an open bar. Snorkel equipment and a free lesson are also included in your tour.
Please note: Tour departs from the Palm Beach area, not downtown. The taxi is not included in the tour price. Approximate taxi fare is $14 US.

The trip was very good because the ship crew was attentive, responsive, and considerate of each and every person aboard. They ensured that the ride was comfortable and safe, from embarking to disembarking. The only negative was the long cab ride from the cruise terminal to the Hyatt complex. Cab fares varied too...

Directions to hotel were good. Check in was easy. boat was nice and snorkelling gear was good. the first site was a bit murkey but interesting. second site was very nice. The rope swing and slide were a hit with some people and they served drinks the entire time.

Gave a fantastic rating for the sail and snorkel, but had to pay for a cab to get to the Hilton hotel - did not object, but driver wanted to charge $75 if we were still wet (we were not). BUT ALL ABOARD WAS 4:30 AND WE WERE NOT ABLE TO GET BACK UNTIL 5:15!!! THANK YOU NCL FOR HOLDING! Pls adjust your timing to accommodate ships correct departure time and all aboard!
The crew was fun and informative. We were able to snorkel to 2 different locations. Then we had the opportunity to go on a swing and jump out of the boat, which was a bonus since we did not know anything about it till we were about to head back to shore. They provided drinks, fruits and sandwich on this tour.

We had a great time on this excursion. The captain and crew were helpful, knowledgeable and very friendly. It was great fun and a relaxing time. We did this exact trip 31 years ago for our honeymoon and would do it again in a heart beat. Preferably, sooner than 31 years from now!
