Using our underwater scooters, we can show anyone from beginners to experienced snorkelers a fun and unique way to discover the best snorkeling Aruba has to offer. We snorkel off the beach in an area called Mangle Halto. It is by far the best coral and marine life on the island. Your group sizes can range anywhere from 1 person to 8 people, although we can can accommodate larger groups during certain times. Please email for further information on larger groups. For more information please read our FAQ page on our website.

Personal attention and excellent snorkeling! Small group setting (We had 9 guests with 2 guides) sure beats other tours that carry 50+ people. Worth every penny! We'll be back.

We never actually snorkeled with Aruba Bob but it was next door to our hotel. Him and his daughter came to the pool there and we had a great conversation. He's a quality person and I'm sure his snorkeling place is great.

Hi there, I'm afraid we only do snorkeling tours and do not have snuba. Kyra@ArubaBob
We will be in Aruba from June 27th to July 4th....my husband, myself and 13 year old son. How much lead time do you need. It would be a group tour likely. What is the cost difference between the group and private tours and how much time in advance if at all do we need to book either tour. Also my husband and I have snorkeled before but never with the seabob propulsion. My son has not. We aren't accustomed to holding our breath for long periods of time. for myself I'm picturing having to come up for air frequently which gets in the way of the experience but no real difference for anyone else except maybe divers and the like. from the earlier post transportation is not included in the costs of the trip. If we have a rental car it is best to use it? Also regarding underwater photos-with the seabob it isn't possible do you provide photos for all customers and is there a fee for providing shots of us and all we see on the tour? Thank you.

Private cost was $125 and group $100. Worrying about air is not a concern as you can stay on the snorkel at all times. Divers have the option of diving shallow or deep but I never chose to do so. Photos are taking by the... More
