    So no chance of getting to Aruba and then booking for that week?

    Are you allowed to also bring your own camera?

    possibly, but from what others have told me they were unsuccessful.

    when we went, about 6 yrs ago, we were booked for 2 months out.

    yes to camera.

    They dont recommend it because you need to hold the scooter with both hands. Their pictures are great.

    Ok, I went ahead and contacted them to see if there is any availability.

    Glad to see we can bring a camera.

    Is this a ride on scooter? Or one of those motorized fan things that pull you in the water? Are they constantly moving? Or do you ever stop to observe the fish and corals?

    it is the motorized fan type that you hold on to. see the pictures on their website. They have trigger so there are times you cn slow down or stop. If you really want to go t your own pace, I recommend a private tour. It is not too much more and you can talk to the guide and let them know what is most important to your family.

    Ok, just wondering. My grandson has one of these and we took it with us to St Thomas once. So I wasn't sure if it's the same or not.

    Just wondering... IMO, when you snorkel, it's best to go slow, sometimes hover above the coral so that the "critters" come out from hiding. This has always been the best way to snorkel and see things you normally wouldn't see if just swimming by and splashing etc. So...can someone explain why using this motorized fan is good? Doesn't it scare off the fish and such? Just wondering. I know this tour comes highly recommended and I do plan on doing it based on what everyone has said over the years about this wonderful experience. I'm just trying to wrap my head around it though. TIA

    Due to the currents in the are and the length of the tour, the fan helps the average swimmer be able to enjoy the tour without getting tired or having to fight currents. We did not feel rushed and had time to enjoy all of the beauty below.
