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.

Although we had been to Aruba before, and have our own snorkel gear, we signed up for a private tour. Alex was our guide, and he was very personable and friendly. The Seadoo scooters are surprisingly easy to use and instead of getting in the way, help you to just think about looking around instead of swimming. We saw so... More

Arrived in Aruba on Nieuw Amsterdam. Had booked with Aruba Bob independently in advance. Got a taxi without any problems from cruise port - about 25/30 minute drive. Went snorkelling with three others, lead by Bob and Kyra. Had the most amazing experience. Very friendly yet extremely professional at all times. Used underwater scooters which were great fun but also... More

My wife and i did the private tour with Alex as our guide. Regardless if you have snorkeled before, you havent had the full experience until you've done it it with Aruba Bob! I've done Cayman, St Johns and several other islands but have never experienced the beauty of the reefs they took us to. We opted for a private... More

My husband and I had such an amazing time with Aruba Bob on our honeymoon in Sept 2016! Booking was done online and was quick and painless. We were picked up at our hotel promptly and was driven over to their facility for a quick rundown of our snorkeling tour. All equipment was new and in great working condition. We... More

We went out on a tour with Kyra and Alex. They both were very friendly, professional and made sure we had a great experience. They took 100's of photos and sent them to us quickly via email and this allowed us to focus on the fish and not camera gear. The underwater seadoo scooters are great and made the experience...

Amazing experience. Best snorkelling trip I've ever had - which includes Red Sea and several Caribbean sites. Great kit, nice host team, amazing fish. Thoroughly recommended.

Kent (aka "Bob") and his daughter, Kyra, gave an incredible view into the underwater world at less physical effort than we have normally used with traditional snorkeling! With the aid of the underwater scooters, we were able to effortlessly maneuver the water, giving more attention to the underwater wild life. They pointed out where to look and provided the names...

Bob is on top of all his operations and therefore provides the best experience. He's relaxed, creative, and gives excellent service! It's thrilling to zoom through the water, stop when you want to see the healthy coral (you'are out from the usual damaged coral) and not have to worry about having the energy to swim back to shore. This over-60... More
