    Glass bottom Boat to Antilla?

    I was just looking at a cruise line website and under excursions in Aruba there was an option of a glass bottom boat to the Antilla wreck. Is this still something that exists or is it just for cruise line excursions?

    No, never did it. Once you have dove the Antilla, there is nothing better than that.

    I did that with my wife and her parents in November. If you aren't a diver or snorkeler it's pretty cool. I'll see if I can dig up some of the pics or videos I tried to take.

    We did the 'glass bottom boat' back in 98-99 timeframe. If it still is operating I wouldn't recommend.

    Have taken friends on the Explorer several times. It is an excellent option for those that do not snorkel/scuba. Recommend it for non-divers.

    Thank you for the link! We are planning on snorkeling so we might skip this. I just hadn't heard of it. We did the submarine and that was just ok so this might not do much for us (we didn't see much). I'd much rather snorkel.

    Uploaded this to youtube. Not the greatest clip in the world, but it should give you some idea of what to expect. Visibility was as bad as I have ever seen it on the day we were on the boat. I would expect it to be better when you go.
