Return Details

Returns to original departure point
Your cruise departs from MooMba Beach, where you'll board the 'pirate ship' and set off from the coast of Aruba, making your way to three snorkeling locations. 

The first stop is Malmok, a shallow area near the shoreline where you can swim with tropical sea life in turquoise waters. Then head to Boca Catalina, where a shallow, protected cove provides visibility and calm waters to snorkel with marine life such as yellow-striped grunts, angel fish, green parrot fish, grouper, elk coral, brain coral, and barrel sponges. Your third stop is the shipwreck of the SS Antilla, a German ship that was sunk by its captain and crew near the beginning of WWII. It sits on the ocean floor in 60 feet (18 meters) of water with its hull and masts sticking up out of the sea. During your snorkel here, look for species of marine life that have turned the ship into their home.

When you're on board the boat, enjoy a barbecue lunch, open bar, and the rope swing. Lunch includes dishes such as ribs, chicken, Caribbean rice, potato salad, fruit, and bread. You can work on your tan in the sun or relax in the shaded portion.

My boyfriend and I had chosen this excursion for our first trip to Aruba! It was hands down our favorite thing we had done during our stay. The crew is friendly and helpful, the boat wasn't too crowded, and the scenes were gorgeous!

Good time

Need to knows: Boat was crowded and there were children on board, no smoking, vary limited drink selection, No beer available. Staff was nice, captain gave piggy back rope swing back flip rides. Highlight of the trip for me. When stopped at shipwreck was unsure of where it was, water was rough and we were warned before getting in. Lunch was BBQ chicken and some ribs served to you, no wet naps. Served with pasta, rice and a melon. Eat the melon last as it helps cleanse the sauce from the meat off your hands. Hope this helps!

Too many people
Joyce M
, Apr 2019
The crew was nice but did not interact a lot however there were a lot of people on the boat. The drinks were good and there was plenty to go around. The lunch was good but served tied up to the dock where we boarded. It would have been more fun anchored in a cove somewhere. There were so many people on board to snorkel it was like a traffic jam trying to look at anything. Everyone kept running into each other and I got accidentally kicked several times. There were not many varieties of fish to see, so that was a disappointment.

This cruise was fantastic! Great crew, snorkeling sites and equipment, and we enjoyed the rope swing and drinks at the open bar on board. We thought this was the best way we could have seen the SS Antilla and would happily recommend the experience to anybody traveling to Aruba.
