Highly recommended. Captain Rene is friendly and knowledgeable. Top rate snorkel gear and boat. Worth the $ compared with lower cost but crowded snorkel tours.

This was awesome! Even though my husband got freaked out and poked by the sea urchin, I had a great time and learned a lot about the island. My husband had a great time talking with the captain as well!

Absolutely amazing experience. Rene was kind, accommodating and hospitable. He takes you to the best snorkelling destinations on a comfortable boat and has every supply you need. He also shows you historical sites and parts of Aruba you wouldn't likely see otherwise. Highly recommend him!!!

Booked a 2 hour charter with Private Snorkleing Aruba and had a great time. Since we've done other snorkel, scuba and party cruises before, we just wanted to have a relaxing time and Capt. Rene was very accommodating. Would recommend him and his company!

We spent the day with Captain Rene. It was awesome. He takes you to places the big boats can't go. And it's a private snorkel trip. No worries about getting kicked in the head by 200 other snorkelers. Definitely worth the money!!!

We looked at the big boat snorkel tours and for a family of 4 the price for the private snorkel tour was about the same. We made reservations online with Captain Rene. Mike picked us up at the dock by our hotel right on time....More
