    First trip in 5 days

    Looking forward to my first trip to aruba arriving sat. I will be arriving with family and staying for a week and hopefully will be able to get some freediving in. If anyone has suggestions on what beaches are good for freediving please let me know.

    We will be at the divi dutch. Hopefully I will be able to find a few spots I can dive from the shore. Anything around 100' or less would be great!

    I would think you would have to go out with a dive operator.I don't think there is any deep spots from the shoreline.

    Yeah I think I will setup a couple of snorkeling trips. The jolly pirates seems like it would be a great trip, because they stop at the wreck. Looking forward to diving that spot and since i'm a KCBS BBQ judge having BBQ on the boat is like icing on the cake! Anyone try that tour and have any reviews?

    I took the Jolly Pirate Trip last year. It was an absolute blast. As far as the snorkeling goes I was a little disappointed. It was fun but no wow. I could see if you were diving it would be much much better. The wreck is pretty deep and i would have loved to explore it. Lunch was great. A lot better then I expected.
    And the cruise back lets just say it turned into Grand-mas gone wild. Four stars our of 5 for the Jolly Pirate. BTW the crew was also fantastic.
