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.

Hi there, I'm glad to hear you had a great time snorkeling, but I'm afraid you did not go snorkeling with our company. Firstly, we do not give personal lessons. The minimum number of people we take are 2. Also, we do not take anyone...More

We were all first-time snorkelers, myself and 2 teenagers. Based on feedback on our pre-booking survey, Aruba Bob recommended we book a private tour. With one strong swimmer, and one who was not confident, and one in the middle, we got a great tour and...More

Perfect way to see the reefs around Aruba. No experience needed, just an interest in having fun. Our guide Alex was awesome. He made this extra special. Highly recommended!

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
We will be in Aruba from June 27th to July 4th....my husband, myself and 13 year old son. How much lead time do you need. It would be a group tour likely. What is the cost difference between the group and private tours and how much time in advance if at all do we need to book either tour. Also my husband and I have snorkeled before but never with the seabob propulsion. My son has not. We aren't accustomed to holding our breath for long periods of time. for myself I'm picturing having to come up for air frequently which gets in the way of the experience but no real difference for anyone else except maybe divers and the like. from the earlier post transportation is not included in the costs of the trip. If we have a rental car it is best to use it? Also regarding underwater photos-with the seabob it isn't possible do you provide photos for all customers and is there a fee for providing shots of us and all we see on the tour? Thank you.

Private cost was $125 and group $100. Worrying about air is not a concern as you can stay on the snorkel at all times. Divers have the option of diving shallow or deep but I never chose to do so. Photos are taking by the... More

Hi David, Sure, we can pick up/drop you off. Our round trip transportation is $40.
HI, I'm interested in using you guys for me and my Dad's trip in April. We are both very experienced ocean swimmers and snorkelers, I know some operators require snorkelers to ware life vests. We don't like to wear them since we free dive. Do you require people to wear life vests or any flotation devices while snorkeling? if we choose not too?

Response from ArubaBob-Snorkeling | Property representative |
Hi, thank you for your question. Life jackets are required on this tour. We use the kind that you add air if its required so it will not effect any free diving. Hope to see you soon.
