Overview
If you want to get underwater views in Aruba without getting wet, book ahead to reserve your spot in the Seaworld Explorer semi-submarine, with a submerged observatory for underwater views of fish and marine life through glass windows. Even if scuba and snorkeling aren't your thing, you still get to see underwater highlights such as the the SS Antilla, and the Arashi reef, accompanied by insightful commentary from your guide.

Highlights
  • 90-minute semi-submarine reef tour fits easily into an Aruba itinerary
  • Get views of Aruba's underwater highlights without getting wet
  • Listen to historical and ecological commentary from a guide
  • Convenient central departure point
What to Expect
Hop aboard a transfer boat departing from Oranjestad's De Palm Pie to be taken out to the Seaworld Explorer. Meet your guide, who will share historical and ecological facts about the sights as you travel. With dry clothing, you get views from the vessel's glassed-in, submerged viewing space of Arashi reef, teeming with tropical fish and other marine life. In contrast to snorkeling, during the submarine tour you can hear insightful commentary from your guide about the types of coral and fish you see. The next stop is the Antilla, a 423-foot (128-meter) German ship sunk during World War II. Snap photos of the colossal boat and its marine inhabitants, while your guide details history of the ship. After 90 minutes, you return to shore by boat.

Great tour and Tour Guide. The best part of the tour was seeing the sunken ship and all of the sea life around it. We saw a lot of fish and a few sea turtles. It was an enjoyable experience that exceeded our expectations.

Great experience. Lasted about 1.5 hours which was perfect. Saw some sea turtles on the shuttle boat out to the semi submarine. And you get enough time to see the shipwreck and all the fish around that. Was very good excursion! My daughter (7yo) and I both enjoyed it. Great tour
