First trip to Aruba and glad we did this. Mike was friendly and knowledgeable. 6000 dives in this area.,...... truly loves his job. Yes we were close to shore - rocky would not want to try and walk in especially with find on. Wreck dive was first for us. Very cool. Extra windy today so made it a little harder... More

The best part is that it is "private". Also nice to be picked up at your hotel. However, very disappointed that two of the three snorkeling sites were also accessible from the shore. My fourth trip to Aruba so had already been to all the shore sites so booked this pricey tour expecting to go to reefs away from shore.... More

We drove down to Palm beach and awaited Rene on the dock. When his partner, Mike, got there, he welcomed us and introduced us to Rene. Once in the boat, he offered refreshing drinks and flotation belts for submerging in the water. We visited three destinations, starting with a reef. He supplied all of the materials needed, including the mask,... More

I found out about Private Snorkeling Aruba here on TripAdvisor and the reviews were completely on point! We were picked up right at our hotel beach and taken to 3 stops. It was our kids first time and Capt. Rene patiently explained how to snorkel to them and had equipment sized perfectly for us all. He knew when to time... More

Captain Rene was super nice and provided us with exactly what we were looking for - a private snorkel tour for my husband and I and our 6 YO daughter. We made three stops and she even chose to sit out the second one and Rene was nice and hung out with her while we snorkeled. Well spoken, kind and... More

We had a private snorkeling trip with Captain Mike this week. He was great. Made a few good stops for snorkeling. I chickened out of the shipwreck but got the story nevertheless, but she enjoyed it. Very knowledgeable around history and had interesting stories. Absolutely pleasant experience, the kind that make vacations more relaxed and enjoyable. We highly recommend Private... More

We found Captain Rene on TripAdvisor and decided to book with him given the great reviews. We were not disappointed. We met Captain Mike at Moomba Beach and we headed to the reef. We snorkeled at 2 reefs and a shipwreck. Lots of fish at the shipwreck. This was the first time snorkeling for our teenage kids and we all... More

We found captain Rene a few years back. We absolutely love him. This trip we couldn't wait for a tour with him. Minutes before we found out it was captain Mike. What a disaster he turned out to be. He started by telling us he was so much better than Rene and to write reviews on him being better. Very... More

Went out this morning with Captain Renee. He picked us up right off the beach at our hotel, and we headed right to the reef. He drifted the boat along with us, making it easy and feeling very safe. His boat and the snorkel gear were in perfect condition, which was also nice. After the first reef, we went to... More
