Took the morning sail, swim, snorkel, and rope swing. Stopped at three locations to swim and snorkel. Beverages were plentiful and good. The rope swing was lots of to do and watch. The lunch was a big surprise because of quality and quantity.
Travel like the pirates used to—on a teak schooner—during this half-day cruise from Aruba. Combine a sightseeing cruise, a bit of history, and the opportunity to snorkel into a single morning, saving you valuable vacation time. Using the provided snorkel equipment, explore the underwater world at three stops. Take advantage of the all-inclusive experience with a hearty barbecue lunch and open bar.
At MooMba beach, board your teak “pirate ship” and sail away from Aruba's picturesque coast, taking in the sights from the deck.
Set sail for the first of your three snorkel stops, Malmok; its shallow, calm waters are great for beginners. Prior to jumping in, you get fitted with a mask, flippers, and snorkel by your experienced crew.
The next stop is Boca Catalina, with similar conditions and tropical fish such as grouper, parrot fish, angelfish, and yellow-striped grunts.
The day’s finale is the shipwreck of the SS Antilla, a German ship sunk during WWII. Paddle around the hulking ship and see the local marine life that has made the ship its underwater home.
Back on board, refuel with a barbecue lunch and drinks from the open bar. Take a turn on the rope swing or simply lounge in the sun on the way back to MooMba beach.
