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.
Both sites for snorkeling were great. Large quantity of fish and decent variety. It was fun to see the scuba divers at the shipwreck site. Crew was nice and boat ride was fun aspect to the trip.

Excellent time!! Made a lot of friends with the crew members and other passengers. The snorkeling is great, the old sunk ship down there was very clear to see and quite awesome! They also offer all kinds of food on the boat and great music and people!! Love it!!
We really enjoyed this snorkel trip. The boat was super fun with a water slide and rope swing. The snorkel sites are really cool too. I would definitely do this again. We read other reviews to skip the island tour and just go snorkeling- we are glad we did!

This trip was extremely well organized. It was very easy to find the group's tent on the beach and we were taken out to the catamaran on inflatables. On board the crew were really friendly and helpful and the equipment was of good quality. They provided life vests for the more nervous snorkelers which was a nice touch out at the wreck as the water was a little choppy. The first stop was over the wreck and it was particularly interesting to be snorkelling on the surface while there were scuba divers below us. The second stop was at a reef and there was a really good variety of fish to be seen, plus a number of squid. There was an open bar throughout the whole trip and we were also given a very tasty lunch. With the music, the yummy rum punch and the really fun rope swing that the younger swimmers could use to cannonball into the water, there was a real party atmosphere. A great excursion, good value for money and I would thoroughly recommend it.

This was a great excursion! The team of the Arusun catamaran were very friendly and worked hard to ensure that everyone had a good time. Gathering for the tour was a little slow since nobody at the hotel was sure where to direct us. Not a big deal to us. Once we found the Aruba Watersports Center on the beach it was handled very well. You have to take a small boat to get to the catamaran. It was a little bumpy so hold on and follow directions. We stopped at both the wreck and a spot closer to the shore that had plenty of fish and coral.The wreck is clearly visible and just out of reach when diving. On the catamaran, the crew provided complimentary fresh fruit, wraps and drinks. We would certainly recommend this excursion.
