    First time poster with a few questions

    Hi All, What started out as a cure for cabin fever for my wife and me has grown into seven other family members coming along! Three of us have been to Aruba before, but it will be the first time for the rest. We are staying at the Marriott Stellaris for 7 nights. We just hope we do not have any covid issues since we keep reading that the CDC has Aruba at a level 4. I may do some diving while there, but I am the only diver in our group. If anyone has suggestions to keep the rest of the group occupied, it would be greatly appreciated.

    Looking for recommendations for a good snorkel trip (colorful fish as opposed to a wreck) and underwater scooters if available.
    Island tour suitable for some baby boomers with pick up from hotel if possible.
    Something a little more challenging such as four wheeling off road.
    Who is "bully" I have seen mentioned on here several times?

    Thanks in advance. We will be there in 17 days!

    welcome to the aruba.com community forum


    practically the whole world is a level 4 (by CDC) so go to aruba, practice social distancing, wear your masks and follow all protocols and you will be fine!!

    look up SEABOB as they have underwater scooters, but unsure of pickup and drop off.
    also
    look up ArubaBob Snorkeling, they too have scooters to be used in the water.
    one of our forum members Kent ArubaBob is the company founder and just a year ago sold the business.

    Bully is Amador Lacle.
    He is a taxi driver with a large following.
    currently he is out on medical leave for another 2 or 3 weeks.
    he is a heck of a good guy and has a lovely family.
    he is aruba's unofficial ambassador.

    again, welcome!

    We vote for Aruba Bob. We had a great time. Contact them about about transportation. For that size group they might pick you up.

    This thread has detailed instructions:

    How to post pics

    Keep in mind that there's a limitation on the size of photo you can upload (I think it's 512K) and the number of photos in one post (5).
