    Right now there are three (3) ships at that location:

    Name: MAVERICK 1
    Type: OIL/CHEMICAL TANKER
    Build: 2008
    Flag: PANAMA
    ---------------------------------
    Name: PACIFIC MISTRAL
    Type: DRILL SHIP
    Flag: LIBERIA
    Home port: MONROVIA

    ---------------------------------
    Name: PACIFIC MELTEM
    Type: DRILL SHIP
    Flag: LIBERIA
    Home port: MONROVIA

    Here is a great link to find out what ships are in the waters of Aruba. This is a real time ship tracking site.
