I'm coming to Aruba for Christmas and I've just heard that my 1/2 day snorkelling trip has been cancelled (at De Palm Island). If I just turn up at Boca Catalina, kind I hire gear and just get on with it?
I'm arriving by cruise ship, a big one, and won't have a car.
No, you can't just show up at boca catalina and rent stuff if that is what you are asking. DOn't know what kind of time frame you have but Depalm has a seperate boat called the Palm Pleasure that goes out from 2-5 for a 2 snorkle stops. there are other boats out there, but I personally recommend that PalmPleasure. You can view my pics in the gallery as there are several of the boat.
Try www.aquawindies.com. Great private snorkel trips with guide. Surprisingly reasonable at $17.50 per hour, minimum 2 people. Three hour trip is plenty. Took trip to Mango Halta. It was fantastic. E mail Windie to set up. She is a wonderful person. Ask for her son as your guide.

Reason: 1 "m" in .com :-)
phillyboater, do you know anything about their dive operation? PADI certified? Do they only do shore dives? Small groups? I am thinking of a small operation for a discover scuba class for our then 13 yo dd.
