The Antilla Shipwreck Sail and Snorkel Trip
Sale Price: $70.00
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.

Loved the trip. The second site over a coral reef was the highlight. It felt very safe and there were so many gorgeous fish! It would be important to emphasize that is isn’t a trip for those with mobility issues because of needed transfers from shore into Zodiak, then the large step into the catamaran.

Aruba was our favorite port because of this excursion...so much so, we decided to purchase an additional excursion! We were allowed to move at our own pace. The water is GORGEOUS. The sail was fantastic! We were offered drinks and a sandwich during our sail which lasted about 15-20 minutes. The shipwreck itself was AMAZING! Completely fascinating. We chose to free dive because we didn’t have scuba gear- some parts of the wreck are deeper than others. Tons, I mean TONS of fish! We loved every second of this excursion. *Tip* There is a bus terminal directly across the street from the port. It cost us $5 round trip to take the bus. You get to see the sites along the way and the people are very friendly and helpful. The bus ride is only 15-20 minutes long. Just an option for you, should you want to save your money. I read in another review, the taxis want to charge additional money if you are wet. Have fun on your adventure!!!

We did a snorkeling excursion on the dolphin, it was amazing. They took us to the shipwreck to snorkel and then to the reef. The snorkeling was awesome, we saw so many beautiful fish, the guys were very nice, had sandwiches and free drinks for us. The rope swing off the boat and water slide was icing on the cake. Thank you for a great day.

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.
