Captain Geo was very entertaining. He made the trip worth every penny. And his knowledge of the island made the trip more interesting. Both of the snorkeling stops were great. I highly recommend this excursion!

Perfect afternoon on the water

We had a perfect afternoon snorkel and sunset tour yesterday! Geo from Octopus met us on the beach introducing himself while offering a rum drink and welcoming us to the boat. He was warm, funny, patient, kind, knowledgeable and passionate about Aruba, the water and snorkeling! First we went to a shallow, quiet area near Boca Catalina so he could assess our comfort and skill level with snorkeling and swimming. He helped me get over my initial anxiety and soon I was enjoying being in the beautiful, clear water watching schools of fish swim around me and spotting colorful fish. My 25 & 27 year old kids took to it immediately! Then we went deeper to the German WWII shipwreck. He had us all in the water feeling very comfortable and excited. It was amazing to see the ship so close and to imagine the history Geo had shared. The fish were truly fantastic, too! Next we went closer to shore to try to see sea turtles. I was tired but two of my kids went in and were rewarded with more beautiful water and fish. Geo entertained the rest of us with interesting stories about his life in Aruba. He also spotted two or three turtles and helped us see them! Once we were all back on the boat with drinks refreshed, Geo took us all the way to the other end of the island, talked about all the different beaches and resorts, took us past the giant cruise ships, the airport and pointed out restaurants, shopping and the island where the flamingos live. Then we turned around and drove back for a beautiful sunset. This was truly a perfect day! We left the boat feeling like we knew so much more about Aruba. We were happy, tired and full of wonderful memories!

Due to Covid it was great that we could get a private boat for just our party. We were able to see turtles, beautiful coral and lots of fish.
