What to expect
This half-day snorkel tour includes two spots and is perfect for beginners and experienced snorkelers alike. Along Aruba’s tranquil west coast, your experienced private guide will help you get (more) comfortable in the water. You’ll see many types of reef fish, starfish, and other marine life. Sea turtles really like this area, so there’s a good chance you’ll see at least one if not many. For less experienced snorkelers, the second stop may be an equally calm spot nearby.
Depending on the weather conditions and your snorkeling level, your private guide will recommend which location to visit as your second spot. Ideally, we’ll take you to a more challenging spot along the less-visited south coast. You’re unlikely to find other tourists here and follow the current past one of Aruba’s most pristine coral reefs. Explore at your own pace and learn anything you’d like to know about the colorful corals and variety of reef fish you’ll encounter.
Top notch private guided tour by Rob. He picked us up at the hotel and headed to Tres Trapi for excellent views of feeding green turtles. Then onto the wall where Rob pointed out all the sea creatures you wouldn’t notice to the untrained eye.
Next, onto Mangel Halto for a tour of the coral reef. Exciting and dramatic views of coral and its inhabitants. Rob shared all the pictures of the things we saw. It was unexpected and is a perfect memento of our experience. This was a repeat tour for us and will not be the last.
Fantastic, authentic and eco friendly experience, and life changing for my kids and family. Rob is an authentic example of a native Aruban who has made his life ecology and education in Aruba. He was so patient and friendly and made my family’s first snorkeling experience really magical. He explained everything my nature loving son wanted to know. Cannot recommend this highly enough!
Rob was the absolute best and we highly recommend this excursion. Our 2 kids (ages 11 and 9) are adventurous but had never been really snorkeling before. Rob was so good with them and they were diving down in not time. We spotted a handful of sea turtles which was super cool and saw some amazing fish and coral. The kids will remember this experience forever! Oh and a plus, Rob got some amazing pictures of us all with the turtles! If you're looking for a great snorkeling experience, do this one. You won't regret it.
If you do one thing in Aruba, let it be this! They take you to two different snorkel spots on the island, and we saw plenty of beautiful fish and coral, and even some turtles! Rose was the perfect guide, and you can tell she really enjoys what she does. She took her time with us, pointed things out to make sure we saw everything. I love the eco-friendly side to their company--after seeing the natural beauty this trip will show you, you'll understand why!
We did this tour with Monica and it was awesome! We saw several turtles, an eagle ray, many kinds of fish, an eel, and more! Monica was a great guide as well! Would definitely recommend this to anyone visiting Aruba!
Rob is very knowledgeable and experienced. He took his time explaining how to use the equipment and is very patient. He provided us excellent snorkeling equipment, took us to two different spots where we saw a bunch of turtles and tons of fish. Rob pointed out a lot of fish that I would not have seen if I went on my own and took pictures of the whole experience. Highly recommend this snorkeling experience to anyone visiting Aruba.
I actually want to leave 6 or 7 stars, but it won't let me.
I had some email conversations w/ Fins and Feet prior to going--and I could already tell how special they are. They're so open, informative, and responsive--you can tell they really care. On the trip itself, we had an amazing experience with Rob. If you're looking for a floating frat party that drops you into the water unescorted to (maybe) see some fish here and there, there are many companies out here who can accommodate you. On the other hand, if your focus is the fish, and you'd like to see many, many different ones--and turtles--w/ a guide who will actually accompany you, seek them out, take you to them, and point them out to everyone in the party, there's no one but Fins and Feet...and the price is just about identical.
Absolutely perfect! Rob was super capable and friendly. If you are new to snorkeling (like we are) then you'll definitely want to go out on the water with Rob.
The tour was so much fun! We got to see turtles, eels, octopus, crabs, etc. My wife and I have been on Aruba for a week and this was probably our favorite activity of the trip!
This was amazing! Rob was a great guide- made sure everyone from my 10 year old up knew how to properly use equipment. He pointed out sea life and was able to tell us about it. He was also an environmental steward by example as he picked up a few pieces of plastic debris from the bottom during our session. Saw 8 green turtles, 2 squid, a sea star, an eel and MANY varieties of fish. Would highly recommend this personal guided snorkel.
