Overview
If you want to get underwater views in Aruba without getting wet, book ahead to reserve your spot in the Seaworld Explorer semi-submarine, with a submerged observatory for underwater views of fish and marine life through glass windows. Even if scuba and snorkeling aren't your thing, you still get to see underwater highlights such as the the SS Antilla, and the Arashi reef, accompanied by insightful commentary from your guide.

Highlights
  • 90-minute semi-submarine reef tour fits easily into an Aruba itinerary
  • Get views of Aruba's underwater highlights without getting wet
  • Listen to historical and ecological commentary from a guide
  • Convenient central departure point
What to Expect
Hop aboard a transfer boat departing from Oranjestad's De Palm Pie to be taken out to the Seaworld Explorer. Meet your guide, who will share historical and ecological facts about the sights as you travel. With dry clothing, you get views from the vessel's glassed-in, submerged viewing space of Arashi reef, teeming with tropical fish and other marine life. In contrast to snorkeling, during the submarine tour you can hear insightful commentary from your guide about the types of coral and fish you see. The next stop is the Antilla, a 423-foot (128-meter) German ship sunk during World War II. Snap photos of the colossal boat and its marine inhabitants, while your guide details history of the ship. After 90 minutes, you return to shore by boat.

The staff were super friendly and informative. But the experience itself was not that exciting. Didn’t really see any fish. We went on a windy day so the water was not very clear. Not something I would do again but I am comfortable snorkeling so that might make a difference in

We had a great time with the crew and Angie who was very accommodative and sharing. The kids were even given a chance to drive the boat in the open water. They loved it. We saw turtles and lots of fish. It’s a magical world down there! Hop in.
