    Okay the dust has settled rather quickly.

    After doing some quick Googling and brain racking, I suddenly remembered
    wildewoman (1st Trip~ 7 nights st the Surf Club!! ) had a great experience with a private tour through Kini Kini. Dh called them and booked a private ATV tour to just the Natural Pool. Poor woman in the office is confused we are reserving and not on the island yet.

    FWIW, if anyone is every looking to contact Kini Kini via phone they have 5 numbers listed in the phone book, the only one which worked was 587-9088. We were going to pay $400 for the 3 of us for Aruba Off Road. Through Kini Kini for 2 ATV's for the 3 of us WITH PRIVATE GUIDE for 4 hours (anywhere on the island we wish to go) is $250 and we will tip him accordingly. No brainer.

    Wish us luck!

    glad you got that all worked out. I am looking forward to your report about helicopter tour; we have considered doing it in Aruba, did vegas strip and a great but $$$$ all day helicopter tour from vegas to grand canyon and both were fun.

    Again, relax, enjoy & have a safe trip

    I was about to suggest Aruba Offroad (Patrick from the Ponderosa is working there as well, and the tours come highly recommended) until I saw the quoted price.

    Uh, nevermind...

    Thanks for the thought, unfortunately Aruba Offroad is the company who advertise tours to the Natural Pool on their website and then just changed it in their confirmation to Baby Beach.

    It all worked out, I am sure Kini Kini will be just fine.

    Cool You will be fine with Kini Kini

    I did the ATV tour with Kini Kini last year and it was great. I would suggest that you make sure that you wear sunglasses on the tour (it is a little more dusty than the jeep tours) and go very slow on the "road" to the Natural Pool (especially with two riders on one of the ATVs).

    BTW I have never telephoned Kini Kini, but I have always received responses from them within 24 hrs if I e-mailed them.

    Thank you so much for the tip Graham! I wear glasses except when sleeping (even swimming, wear sunglasses with floaters, just don't get the head wet ). Dd just got a new pair and dh wears them when I remind him. We are looking forward to it. Anything else we need to know to bring?

    Cool Other tips...

    Since you are on a private tour, you may want to forgo seeing the California lighthouse (you just go up the main road and back as part of the organized Kini Kini tour that I did with the company i.e. it is probably better if you stick with the original itinerary that you thought you were getting with Aruba Off-Road adventure than to make the same stops that the Kini Kini planned ATV tours make).

    Other tips...you may want to bring some swim goggles/dive mask to see what is swimming in the Natural Pool itself. Additionally, a hat is not necessary on the tour as you will be wearing a helmet (that may give you some more room in your backpack). I should also point out that you definitely do not want to forget your sunscreen (you will not be under a car roof on an ATV) and a camera is a must have (great pictures at the Natural Pool) on the tour.

    Thanks for the tips. Yes, we can give up a stop at the Lighthouse, I think we have only been there 15 times .
