Snorkeling tour. Ok equipment. Not much instruction or anyone in the water with you. Packed with about 50 people on a small boat.

The only thing I would've changed is longer time at the beach; we only got to be there for 15 minutes. I would've liked at least an hour there.

Pretty ride on a nice boat with Robertson, an entertaining captain. Snorkeling was not great, but water was nice. So was the beach stop and they provided drinks.

It was hard to be on the last catamaran to arrive at the snorkeling sites, too much time spent waiting to tie up at the moorings because of other boats in the vicinity

Packed on like sardines. They ran out of vests for snorkeling. Took too long at snorkel spot, only had half hour at beach. Total disappointment.

Did a great catamaran snorkel cruise. We stopped at two different snorkel places and then had complimentary rum punch on the way back. It was excellent!

Ship was in port late into the evening. We walked around town during the day and then took a Sunset Cruise. ABC islands were windy during the spring but that just made for great sailing weather.

Decided to opt for a catamaran snorkel tour as it was our last opportunity; the snorkeling was a bit disappointing, but we enjoyed sailing on the catamaran. Many of the shops in port were closed as it was Sunday, and the weather was too hot (not that I am complaining) for us to venture very far. Read Less

We took the ship's sailing and snorkeling tour with a very large group of passengers. The boat is large enough for lots of people and there were plenty of staff on board to help and for safety. As we drove to the boat, we were given some information about the trip, and a safety briefing was given shortly after boarding. We sailed about 30 minutes to the first snorkel spot. The sailing was fabulous, and sitting anywhere on the ship was pleasant. Soft drinks and water were offered before snorkeling, and rum punch was added (included) after snorkeling. Safety was clearly a priority here. In our group of 4 people, 3 got seriously sunburned because of inadequate sunscreen. The sun is very strong here but when you are in the water, you don't realize how much sun you are getting. Definitely bring waterproof sunscreen and re-apply after every time you get in the water. Better yet, wear a t-shirt. Read Less

This tour was OK. The boat was in disrepair and safety equipment sub-standard. The trip to snorkle was good as was the water experience.

Sunset Catamaran Cruise (Aruba 11/18): Captain Richard, First Mate/Bartender Randy. Very good. Appeared overbooked, but once the forward part of the catamaran was open of people to sit on/around the netting it was okay. Drinks varied in amount of alcohol – read the menu behind the bar from left to right for increasing strength of the drinks. Red Sail Sports. Pre-booked at $59.75/pp, onboard price was $69.75/pp. Read Less

Had a blast!!! One of my top five excursions ever. Started with a walk from the ship to the Catamaran. The guide was funny and informative as we sailed out to the first snorkeling spot which was just off a beach. The second snorkeling spot was at a sunken World War II German freighter ship. This was the reason I booked this one, I thought that would be awesome and it was!. After that we got back on the catamaran to go to the beach where they had a great lunch ready for us. Didn't get to spend as much time at the beach as we would have liked but it was a lot of fun. The bus ride from the beach back to the ship was fun and it was in a party bus and everyone was having a good time. Read Less
