Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Following pickup at your Aruba hotel in the late afternoon, transfer to the luxurious 70-foot (20-meter) catamaran and set sail on the turquoise sea.

Grab a drink from the open bar, then find a spot on the sundeck or in the shade of the cabin. Watch the coastline of Aruba recede as the boat heads out towards the SS Antilla, a German freighter that ran aground during WWII.

When you reach the wreck, slip on the provided mask, snorkel and flippers and jump in. Follow your knowledgable guide around the ship as they point out the many varieties of coral and native tropical fish that have made the sunken freighter their home.

After enjoying Aruba's underwater seascape and the boat's open bar, head back to land for drop-off at your hotel.

Optional Upgrade: 'Snuba' allows you to breathe easily underwater, but doesn't limit you to floating on the top. Follow a certified Snuba guide to a depth of 20 feet (six meters) for a dive. No snorkeling or scuba certification is needed.

No Snuba for us in Aruba
Cynthia_H
, Mar 2020
here's the deal. We paid for snuba. filled out a form at the concierge at our hotel. on the form, we checked that we had high b.p., even though we both take meds for it, so it's controlled. told by the concierge that we were fine. Got to the boat with our friends, to snuba together. Person at the boat would not let us snuba. Said we could only go if we had a note from our physician. Seriously? As we were getting on the boat? Embarrassing, disappointing, unnecessary. Better communication, of correct information, is recommended.

Great Outing and Snuba

We had a great time on this Afternoon Delight Snorkel. We added the Snuba which was a bucket list thing for me. So glad we did. The guide was a good teacher and it was great. We saw many fish and he brought food for the fish to attract them. The catamaran is huge and was a fun cruise as well. The ship wreck was fun to see, but it was very windy there so we did not stay in the water long.

The tour itself was very nice....no complaints. The boat was clean, the crew was nice and festive and the spot we went to Snorkel was teaming with fish. The only reason for not giving this tour a five star rating is due to the instructions or rather lack thereof in the Viator vouchers and the EXTREMELY RUDE AND BELLIGERENT treatment we received from their representative at the Renaissance hotel. The vouchers that we received did not explain that you must make a reservation for your trip in advance. Although you select, book and pay for a specific trip date this DOES NOT secure your trip for that date. On the morning of our trip I called the number on the voucher because I had not had any communication confirming our transportation details. I was advised that we did not have a reservation for our group and that we would have to speak to the agent at the hotel. When we arrived we waited in line behind one couple who was purchasing their trip onsite. After waiting approximately 30 minutes through the sales pitch and another five minutes of being ignored after she was done with the couple I asked if she would be the right person to speak to. I was belittled for not knowing what I was supposed to do and told that the instructions were clear on the voucher. I had the printed vouchers in hand and pointed out that at no time was it expressed that we had to see an onsite reservation agent or complete a separate confirmation/reservation for transportation in order to take the snorkel cruise. After 30 more minutes of arguments the agent conceded that we could go on the snorkel cruise if we could get our group to the boat before sailing time AT OUR OWN COST, even though transportation was included in the fee we paid because we didn't follow directions and book in advance. We paid taxis which are extremely reluctant to transport a group of six even in a van with enough seats at a premium cost to get us to the boat. Once on the boat no complaints.....but buyer beware.

This was a great experience - only thing I didn't like was the bus was 25 minutes late to pick us up and no explanation or apology. The boat was great, the staff were super nice. The boat was plenty big enough and loads of space to escape the children who were on board too! So good for families and couples/singles. The Snuba was a great experience. My guide sorry forgot his name was so patient with me, and I just went at my own speed and depth. Only thing I'd recommend changing is more sailing time - thought it was meant to be for 4 hours, but was only 3.

Had a great time on this excursion. The staff were all very friendly and helpful and a gr8 party attitude on a roomy catamaran.. We had an adequate amount of time to snorkel in two locations, at a shipwreck and around the reef. Not a massive amount of coral or a huge variety of tropical fish but a fun day nevertheless. I opted for the snuba but was a little disappointed because, despite a full weight belt, I had a lot of trouble getting depth. I have an unusual propensity to float. Also, I read other reviews that said that the guides took pictures with an option to purchase them but I didn't hear any mention of this on the tour.
