We went snorkeling with Stuart at Aruba Bob late April.

We did some research and opted for the private trip. I feel bad now that I didn’t get others to join because they certainly missed out. Stuart picked us up at our hotel and we had a great conversation on the way to his office. He offices next to a nice little bed and breakfast. We got fitted and headed to the water. After some brief training on the propellers we got started. It is a little work and certainly a little more adventurous than normal tours.

By far the best I have ever been on and just a staggering number and variety of fish. He went at a speed appropriate for the group and took care of all the pictures. If we come back to Aruba we would probably plan our time around a couple of snorkeling excursion with Stuart.

Thanks again it was a lot of fun!

Had such an amazing time that we would go back in a heartbeat! Our first snorkel trip and Stuart was great at getting us suited up and teaching us the ropes! Stuart has a great personality and has a passion for his job. He's full of information, took tons of amazing pictures, and always made sure we were safe. Anyone that has the opportunity should take this trip

Although the snorkel trips off the catamarans are good, the sights are nothing special. We were picked up at our hotel, took the30 minute drive, fitted with mask, wetsuit & motorized scooter. Stuart was our guide & he made sure everyone was comfortable with the equipment before starting. With only 4 in our group we were able to cover a lot of ground. He kept an eye on everyone and guided us to some great spots. It was well worth the money

This was the best snorkeling ever. Stuart picked us(my wife and I) from marriott stellaris and picked one other couple on our way to this great spot. Mike was our guide and he was very helpful and made us feel comfortable with the underwater scooter. He made sure we are right behind him every 5 secs and took like awesome pictures on our private tour with him. Stuart was guiding the other couple who were from Chicago and we all met halfway and took pictures holding the baby octopus and sea urchin which we let go back in the waters. The scooters did help our 1.5-2hrs snorkeling trip. This was by far the best experience on our Aruba trip and we will definitely visit Aruba and do snorkeling with Mike and Stuart again. Mike dropped us back at the Resort and he did give helpful tips on the local restaurants, clubs and shopping.

NOTE: Please avoid the resort sponsored snorkeling. This is by far the one of the best things you can do in Aruba.

First & foremost THANK YOU to Stuart our guide on our snorkel trip! He was informative, helpful & extremely cool… oh & a killer photographer. :) We were lucky to get perfect conditions for trip, and easily cruised through the underwater beauty that Aruba has. We saw squid, a three legged turtle, lion fish, trumpet fish, parrot fish, a couple of large schools, and so much more. I have snorkeled all over the world & I can say this was definitely a favorite. It was the first time I had ever used a fan & for beginners this is a helpful tool. If you are looking for a fun excursion on Aruba Snorkel Bob's is it! Thanks again!
