Does Aruba Bob take you beyond the yellow buoy? I am a beginner snorkeler and being in the open ocean scares me a bit. Maybe we will try it if we come back next year.  Heading to Arashi beach tomorrow!

    Arashi Beach is awesome. Saw starfish, a stingray, a small eel, and many beautiful fish. Went to Mangel Halto. Agree with above posts about taking warnings seriously. My son's wife is also a swimmer and I was a lifeguard and we stayed within the reef. Very rough outside.

    Aruba Snorkeling Map

    I found each of the Aruba snorkeling spots by using the smartphone GPS map on this website (try their full-screen mode on your phone, very cool):

    What did you (or anyone else) think of Depalm Island snorkeling?

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum.

    we used to do a lot of snorkeling at depalm (when the cost was $8) so that was years ago!

    we loved seeing the parrot fish and lots of other types of fish.
    the reef was kind of a mess due to people walking on it.

    there was quite a bit of fire coral, quite a ways out and we had to be careful.

    we have not been there in a few years.

    I usually drive around in circles for an afternoon before I find it in time to leave.
