    What to Expect
    A Water Adventure Like None Other

    You may be thinking… but what exactly is an Aqua Donut?

    An Aqua Donut is a circular boat (similar to that deep fried, glazed treat we all love to indulge in from time to time). It cannot sink, even when full of water. However, this donut is a floating device powered by a motor and built out of high fiberglass, allowing it to glide seamlessly across the s p a r k l i n g turquoise sea. You can rent the Aqua Donut without a boat license. We will instruct you how to operate the boat and the outboard motor.

    The donut includes a table in the center with the option of a flat table top or changing it to a lounge scale to be filled with ice and your favorite refreshing drinks. The table includes plenty of cup holders for you to place your drink and ensure that it doesn’t spill during your water adventure! However, no worries you won’t be traveling at outrageously high speeds, just fast enough to comfortably float along, allowing for a lovely day – dazed out at sea! 

    There is plenty of seating and sufficient space on the donut, leaving room for a cooler packed full of yums and your personal items. The donut can seat up to 10 persons making it PERFECT for group outings and special occasions! (birthday party, the annual department outings, company parties, bachelor parties, chilling on the water with a cocktail or another drink, a fresh brainstorm session, a swim party with your friends or just because it’s nice to breath of a fresh caribbean air with a snack and a drink on a unique boat)!

    This is the FIRST Aqua Donut in Aruba! You can now experience a memorable water adventure just the way YOU like it! 

    Want to stop and snorkel to discover the beautiful underwater marine life? Take a dip in the oh-so inviting and refreshing water? Or simply lounge aboard your donut under the umbrella’s shade? The choice is up to you… YOU are the captain (yes you can operate this donut on your own however, you can also request an Octopus staff member to come along) and your own tour guide – truly a NEW concept for water excursions in Aruba!

    Spending the day gliding across the glistening Caribbean Sea, catching some lovely sunshine and taking a dip in the refreshing clear blue water… how can one resist?!

    Lunch/ Brunch option. Can you imagine a better setting for brunch than in the middle of the Caribbean Sea? Yeah… I didn’t think so. The brunch option is expected to be available within the next month… and I don’t know about you but I am counting down the days!

    There is a plenty of space to move around and be comfortable. By the way if you’re concerned about operating this donut on your own, don’t be! You do not have to be a certified boat captain in any way.

    So… What are You Waiting For?

    We recently enjoyed a two person Aqua Donut Boat tour. We were provided great instructions, and always had an emergency method to contact if needed. Plan a head and bring some snacks/drinks and have a romantic time at sea. Would recommend a three hour tour at minimum since it

    My husband and I rented an Aqua Donut and we did not have a good experience. 1. I booked the Donut 3 weeks prior to our trip. When you book online, the company manually sends an email to confirm the date/time. This is kind of weird since most places have auto-confirmation.

    Thank you for your review! On behalf of Octopus Aruba we would like to apologize for any inconvenience that you may have experienced. Our booking system is a booking on request system, since we work with several external partners our availability is constantly changing. We are a very flexible company and intend on making sure that we can welcome all of our guests on the Octopus or one of our activities. As a company we like to maintain a honesty policy with our guests, when it comes to logistical reasons due to our crew, guests are NOT obliged to accommodate. There is no pressure and of course if our guests are unable then we will accommodate the pre-arranged time. For our company our guests are always our first priority. Picking up our clients does not occur later than told in the emails regarding pick up times. Thank you for your compliments regarding the instruction. Safety is the maximum priority for our guests and we are happy that you enjoyed our crew :) On our Aqua Donut boats we recommend a minimum of 3 hours for a proper snorkeling and sailing trip with 2-3 snorkel spots. Our motors of the Aqua Donut Boats have a safety for 5-8km/hour. This makes them simple to sail and drive by anyone and possible for those without a license. We advise our guests to drive the Donut Boat closer to the shore so that they will not be as affected by the waves. This is of course up to the guests discretion :) We hope that we can welcome you on the Aqua Donut Boat again in the near future and we hope that you take email contact with us so that we can find a solution :) Looking forward to the next sail trip!

    We chartered a 6 person donut boat with a captain to go snorkeling. We originally weren't going to pay for a captain, but are so glad we did! Since this was our first trip to Aruba we wouldn't have known where to take the boat for a great snorkeling experience. Our guide, Jose,

    Hello Karin, Thank you for your review. Great that you had a great time with the Aqua Donuts (Orange round boat). The ultimate way to enjoy the beautiful waters of Aruba when you are on vacation. As we have read, you certainly enjoyed the Aquadonuts. Hopefully we can welcome you again on the beautiful Aqua Donuts during your next visit to Aruba. Greetings team Octopus.
