    Arashi and malmok are both great for snokling This is where the boats bring people snokling. Plenty of fish to see. Bring some bread and they will surround you in the water

    I would make one addition. If you pay a visit to DePalm Island, the snorkeling there is great. There are lots of fish, especially blue parrot fish.
    Next Aruba trip in

    When we were in Hawaii on honeymoon almost 20 years ago...the lady said to feed the fish "frozen Peas". Frozen Peas have been great for bringing fish in close and not falling apart...as fish love them....Make sure you get them away from you as fish will swarm all around you. Makes for great pictures as the water does not get cloudy from the bread breaking down...

    We will be in Aruba in 5 days...can not wait to get away from the cold....we have reached 110" of snow!!!


    We love baby beach but has gotten very crowded .....since 1996



    Frozen peas...also place them in a zip lock bag as they will escape...

    we have fed frozen peas to fish often!
    but, feeding the fish is apparently not good for the eco system or the reef.

    welcome to the forum PaTeeny.
    hope that your aruba trip is awesome.

    Hi, I went to Snorkel to Boca Catalina, Malmok and Baby Beach, all of them are very calm waters and crystal clear. You can get to Boca Catalina by BUS taking the Line 7 Arubus to Noord/Marriot. The bus just let you in front of the Catalina Beach. To baby beach you need a Car and some to guide you there because is off the city, but there i saw this rare fishes. Even when I only snorkel a few times I have the best experience in Baby Beach.
