    I would definitely recommend the snorkel trip (or scuba) with ArubaBob.

    We just got back from Aruba last week, and We really loved the sunset cruise with Depalm! We also did the Atlantis submarine tour this time, and we rented our own car and went to the lighthouse, and went snorkeling at different beaches along the coast! In the past, we did the DePalm island tour, once in a bus, and once in a range rover type vehicle! Have fun :-)

    James Bond

    We Loved the helicopter ride it was fantastic , The pilot took us past our hotel and hovered around a bit so we could take some pictures from above.He did this at all the sights like the shipwecks ect.The best bit was the other side of the Island when the pilot did the James Bond bit .Just over the top of the sea .Yippee a great moment.

    The helicopter tour was BY FAR one of the best things we have done on the island

    Helicopter Tour Photos

    Helicopter Tour Videos



    http://www.arubahelitours.com/ They are the only ones on the island

    We took the ISLAND tour-
    downtown to California Lighthouse and then around the north-west coast of Aruba as far south as the Raceway. This allows you to see much more of the island than just the BEACH tour- downtown and California Lighthouse.

    The Antilla...almost as impressive from the air as it is underwater 60' below.

    Another vote for the Helicopter Tours, wonderful time! Trikes ARUBA is fairly new and awesome! Also enjoy just walking thru the different hotels and casinos to see what they are like. we also enjoy walking around the marina downtown and wishing we lived on one of the boats that are docked there, or should I say Luxuary Ships
