    I agree. This looks interesting, but at that price we won't find out.
    Not sure when, but we will be back

    It Is AWESOME!! We had so much fun the first time we did it again! $120 pp plus your guide will take about 300 pictures of your group plus some amazing pics from the Sea floor! $30 for all the pictures! It really was an incredible experience!!

    sounds cool but the price is high
    and being a diver I would rather do that instead...
    however, if you aren't and are just looking for a cool way to see some underwater "wildlife" it might be the way to go....as long as there are trained people with you to make sure you stay safe.......

    The reason the price is so high is because these machines cost over $15,000 each. They are very fast and you really get spoiled. I have done it 5 times now because I get a local price. The only thing I do not like is the snorkeling up north does not compare to the snorkeling at Mangle Halto. They do not have the nice fire coral and other plant life. I like the more varieties of fish at Mangle Halto also. As far as the machines, you can't beat them. They have 10 speeds and they fly on high speed.
    Snorkel Mangel Halto, day or night with a waterscooter. Check out our website. E-mail Stuart at arubabob@live.com or call Stuart local: 745-7459 Or visit: www.arubabobsnorkeling.com 50th trip Dec 11, 2017
