Using our underwater scooters, we can show anyone from beginners to experienced snorkelers a fun and unique way to discover the best snorkeling Aruba has to offer. We snorkel off the beach in an area called Mangle Halto. It is by far the best coral and marine life on the island. Your group sizes can range anywhere from 1 person to 8 people, although we can can accommodate larger groups during certain times. Please email for further information on larger groups. For more information please read our FAQ page on our website.

Aruba Bob is conveniently located at Savaneta Aruba, adjoining club arias resort, where we stayed during our trip. Kyra was the snorkeling guide for our private tour( me and wife), of the corals around Mangel Halto beach. She did a great job of tutoring us basics of snorkeling (masks and breathing), sea scooter, and then guiding us effortlessly around the... More

My husband and I booked a private tour as his group tours were already filled. Group tours fill up weeks in advance so book early. Don't worry about the weather as when it rains in Aruba it doesn't last long. Besides, you will be snorkeling so it doesn't matter if it's raining. We were waiting for weather reports closer to...

My husband and I took a private snorkeling trip with Aruba Bob and without doubt, it was the highlight of our vacation. Alex, our tour guide, picked us up at our hotel, and took us back to the Aruba Bob site to gather all of the equipment we would need and to lock up our things. It was a very... More

I had a horrible snorkeling incident in the Bahamas almost 20 years ago. I stayed out of the ocean for the last 20 years during numerous beach vacations. My husband really wanted to do this excursion and after he spoke to Bob about my fears, he felt confident we would be in good hands (despite my panic), Thanks to Kyra,... More

I took my family of 4 out snorkeling with Aruba Bob's team this month. Great trip and the kids loved it. I definitely suggest using the shorty wetsuits for all, especially the kids. Kyra and Alex took us out and were very attentive to my wife as she was a bit nervous on the trip. My 9 year old got... More

Outstanding service, great equipment, everyone friendly and with true expertise. Alex was an awesome guide. I've never posted a review on TripAdvisor till now. Our family (Mom, Dad and 15 yr old) had the best experience. Thank you so much Aruba Bob Snorkeling!

Kyra took my son and I out on an adventure. The gear was high quality and Kyra was a wonderful tour guide. We plan to go back for round two next year.

Our tour was on 3/12/17, Bob and Kyra treated us like family. Very accommodating with our group since there was a few different levels of comfort in the water/snorkeling. Aruba is definitely a vacation spot we will repeat and Aruba Bob’s Snorkeling is a repeat adventure we will book again! Bob and Kyra – THANK YOU again for a wonderful... More

My girlfriend and I found out about Aruba Bob's snorkeling through tripadviser we got off a cruise ship and rented a car for around $50 at the pier and drove out to his facilities which were about 20 minutes away. Kent the owner also known as Aruba Bob was there to greet us and accommodate us with a private tour.... More

This was a beautiful trip hosted by friendly, knowledgeable guides. The pictures alone were worth the trip! Felt very safe and comfortable the whole time, very appropriate for families. The water scooters were very easy to handle, made swimming in the ocean so much more enjoyable. I would HIGHLY recommend this trip.
