I found out about Private Snorkeling Aruba here on TripAdvisor and the reviews were completely on point! We were picked up right at our hotel beach and taken to 3 stops. It was our kids first time and Capt. Rene patiently explained how to snorkel to them and had equipment sized perfectly for us all. He knew when to time... More

Captain Rene was super nice and provided us with exactly what we were looking for - a private snorkel tour for my husband and I and our 6 YO daughter. We made three stops and she even chose to sit out the second one and Rene was nice and hung out with her while we snorkeled. Well spoken, kind and... More

We had a private snorkeling trip with Captain Mike this week. He was great. Made a few good stops for snorkeling. I chickened out of the shipwreck but got the story nevertheless, but she enjoyed it. Very knowledgeable around history and had interesting stories. Absolutely pleasant experience, the kind that make vacations more relaxed and enjoyable. We highly recommend Private... More

We found Captain Rene on TripAdvisor and decided to book with him given the great reviews. We were not disappointed. We met Captain Mike at Moomba Beach and we headed to the reef. We snorkeled at 2 reefs and a shipwreck. Lots of fish at the shipwreck. This was the first time snorkeling for our teenage kids and we all... More

We found captain Rene a few years back. We absolutely love him. This trip we couldn't wait for a tour with him. Minutes before we found out it was captain Mike. What a disaster he turned out to be. He started by telling us he was so much better than Rene and to write reviews on him being better. Very... More

Went out this morning with Captain Renee. He picked us up right off the beach at our hotel, and we headed right to the reef. He drifted the boat along with us, making it easy and feeling very safe. His boat and the snorkel gear were in perfect condition, which was also nice. After the first reef, we went to... More

Found this on TripAdvisor and all the reviews are spot on! We went out on our last day with Capt Mike. It was such a pleasure to not be with the big groups. We were in the water right when we arrived at the spots. He gave us a few tips and off we went. We did have to swim... More

We found Captain Rene and Captain Mike during a search on trip advisor after seeing that the large snorkeling tours were booked for the day that we wanted to snorkel. We emailed them through their website a few days before we wanted to go and confirmed our time. We booked a semi-private trip during the week that ended up being... More

We have been enjoying Captain Rene for many years now. One of the first things we do after our trip is booked is to make a reservation with our friend. He knows this island and, unlike so many snorkeling trips with a huge group, this is just just your family, your pick of friends. Want to snorkel, hear all the... More

We had a wonderful snorkel adventure for the four of us (two couples) on our trip to Aruba on a cruise last week. - We had read of Captain Rene and his private tours and frankly, it was a much better, less crowded, and more personal experience with him ! Do not hesitate to book this private excursion. After emailing... More
