    Best snorkel tour for diehards

    My SO is a diehard snorkeller and im quickly joining in his footsteps (snorkelfins)
    Looking for any ideas on great snorkel trips that will take us to some amazing spots and will give us more than 20 minutes at each spot.
    We're also planning on renting a car so we can hit some of the the walk-in spots
    Thanks
    Steph

    First, book a snorkel with Aruba Bob, without a doubt.

    Also, drive to Boca Catalina, jsut northwest of the high rise hotels, grab a palapa and snorkel from the beach. Lots of pretty fish and easy to reach coral. We spend a few hours there at least every other day. Just up the road is Arashi Beach, the northwestern most beach. Not as good as Catalina IMO, but easy to do and still fun.

    Enjoy!

    Done both..both great. I really suggest you do the Tranquillo with Cpt Anthony Haggerdorn. The drifting down and over Mikes reef is an incredible experience. Lots of coral and things to see. can be a bit choppy at times if you are prone to seasickness. The snorkelling at both Boca Catalina and Mangel Alto is superb.

    Would suggest ArubaBob. They have night trips available also. Did not do a night trip, but you might want to do both.

    I have to agree, the drift snorkel with Tranquilo in the open ocean over one of Aruba's greatest reefs is a pretty cool thrill. We have done it twice and look forward to doing it again in the future. Tranquilo is in our top 4 favorite excursions.
